Hot Stone Foot Reflexology
Take relaxation to the next level and try Hot Stone Reflexology! This is an incredibly indulgent treatment which enhances the benefits of a conventional reflexology. As the name implies, the treatment involves using smooth hot basalt volcanic stones on the feet to relax the body at its depest level. The heat brings about physiological and psychological changes, promoting a meditative state and influences the internal energy flow, bringing balance to the body and mind.
As a precursor to the treatment, hot stones are placed on areas of the body, to warm the tissues, to dilate blood vessels and get blood and oxygen flowing into tense areas. The stones’ heat can produce powerful and dramatic results when they are placed on certain key areas of the body (Chakra lines/points, and acupuncture meridians among them).
Hot Stone Reflexology combines the benefits of reflexology treatment with hot stone therapy for a deeply relaxing experience. It is estimated that one stroke of a hot stone is worth five strokes with the hand! It is also believed to yield five times deeper and five times longer lasting effects compared to reflexology alone. Stones are firstly used to massage the lower legs relieving any tension in the calf muscles and helping to enhance energy flow. Smaller stones are then used to work the reflex areas and points of the feet. The heat from the stones quickly opens the reflex pathways bringing deeper level of relaxation than conventional reflexology.
