Hot Stone Reflexology
What is Hot Stone Reflexology?
Hot Stone Reflexology uses a range of smooth, basalt stones to heat the lower legs, feet and reflex points to produce a deeply relaxing, holistic treatment. It lasts longer than a regular reflexology treatment as it is a slower process and many moves involve holding the stones over reflex points and areas, allowing a deeper penetration and, hence, stimulating deeper healing.
How does it work?
The theory behind hot stone reflexology is the same as foot reflexology; by stimulating reflex points in the feet with the pressure and heat of stones, we can identify any imbalances in corresponding parts of the body and trigger the body's natural healing process. Thumb and finger massage, as in foot reflexology, will be incorporated into this treatment.
What is a treatment like?
Whilst the stones are hot, they do not burn or cause discomfort. Imagine walking along a warm beach. This is the sensation that clients often report during this treatment. Extra benefits of this treatment include the lower legs being massaged throughout the treatment with the hot stones and it is a longer treatment, as each massaging with stones is a slower process. This is a wonderful treat in the winter months, but can be enjoyed at any time of year. The heat from the stones not only warms the feet and legs, but the whole body.
What is Hot Stone Reflexology useful for?
Hot stone reflexology can be useful for many things. Most clients experience stress relief, improved sleeping patterns, improved energy levels, improved skin tone and texture due to improved circulation, clearing of the sinuses and pain relief. It is important to remember, however, that reflexology is a complementary therapy rather than an alternative therapy. This means that it should not be used instead of medication for an illness as it does not cure problems, even if it helps to alleviate some
symptoms you are experiencing.
