Hot Stone Massage has been practiced in other parts of the world for over 2000 years and is now taking the UK by storm. It is a wonderful deep massage technique which is becoming increasingly popular due to its amazing beneficial effects. More and more therapists are adding it to their menu of individual services. The idea of `melting your cares away` captures the imagination of therapists and clients alike.

Using special iron-rich basalt volcanic stones, which are pre-heated in water to a safe but effective temperature, this therapy works on three levels. During the treatment, the client is engulfed in warmth and comfort, allowing you to work deeper with no extra effort and no danger of unnecessary injury to your own hands, wrists, fingers or thumbs. The energies from the stones promote a meditative and calm state, helping to relax to the deepest state possible and clients feel the warm nurturing and healing effects long after the treatment is over.

This incredible therapy can turn your massage business around. You can charge up to 50-100% more than for your regular treatments and you will find it adds an exciting new dimension to your practice. Adding the element of stones will enable you to create exciting new strokes, which feel totally different to anything the client may have experienced before. It is so popular with clients that many who have tried it never go back to traditional massage!
