Hot Stone Reflexology
Introduction to Hot Stone Reflexology
The use of hot stones to assist human wellbeing goes back to ancient times. Today, hot stone reflexology is becoming increasingly popular as people realize the effectiveness and sheer delight of the treatment.
Hot stone reflexology is based on the theory that different points on the feet or hands represent different organs and systems of the body. Working these different points, known as reflexes, encourages the mind and body back into a balanced state. The use of warm stones speeds up the relaxation process and allows warmth to penetrate the hands or feet as the reflexes are being worked.
The soothing warmth of the stones can assist the parasympathetic nervous system to calm and slow the heart and breathing down which then helps your mind and body to relax and then rebalance. The heat from the stones relaxes muscles quickly and also widens blood vessels helping circulation.
What is Hot Stone Reflexology Treatment?
The smooth basalt stones are heated to a comforting, muscle relaxing, tension releasing warm temperature. When they are at a temperature that is comfortable for you they will be used to gently work your reflexes as you lay back comfortably in my reclining chair.
During the treatment I will use the warm stones and my hands to work your reflexes to ease away any imbalances and encourage good natural flow through your systems.
You can choose to receive hot stone reflexology on your hands or your feet.
