What is Hot Stone Reflexology?
Hot Stone reflexology is a more effective way to give a reflexology treatment using hot & cold stones. One stroke with a hot stone is worth 5 with the hand, so the treatment is more powerful because it enables deeper penetration to break down the tangled nerve fibres that are found in the congested reflexes on the feet. The therapeutic heat is deep & soothing making for a luxurious & relaxing treatment.
The hot stones used in the hot stone reflexology treatment are basalt stones because they retain heat & have been handpicked & naturally shaped & smoothed to give a deep & relaxing pampering treatment. Basalt stones are a common volcanic rock formed from the rapid cooling of lava as it touches the earth this is why it is very hard & holds heat making it perfect for a treatment. At the end of the treatment cold stones are used to awaken with their cooling revitalising temperature & grounding qualities. I will be using marble which is traditionally used in building & sculpture, but don’t worry I mainly only use the cold stones at the end!
