HOT STONE MASSAGE
Hahana Hot Stone Massage is a truly unique style of massage which consists of the therapist placing heated basalt stones of various shapes/sizes onto the client’s body. These stones are placed onto different points (chakras, energy points, sore muscles, etc) Whilst these placement stones are warming and activating specific areas, the therapist will take several other heated stones and begin massaging a different area of the body.
The heat from the stones is released deep into the muscles, greatly enhancing the massage. It is said that one stroke with a heated stone is equivalent to ten normal massage strokes! Therapists will also incorporate cold stones (usually marble) into their treatment which, although not quite as relaxing as the heated stones, do have a part to play for many conditions.
Most people who have a Hot Stone Massage are ‘blown away’ by the level of relaxation that is achieved. Some clients will have vivid dreams or even ‘out-of-body’ experiences. It is usually a very grounding, relaxing and healing experience.
Apart form the deep level of relaxation, Hot Stone Massage is also great to incorporate into Remedial or Deep Tissue massage.
