Hot Stone Reflexology

This wonderful indulgent therapy is becoming increasingly popular due to its extraordinary 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.


Hot stone reflexology combines the benefits of a conventional reflexology treatment with the use of pre-warmed iron-rich volcanic basalt stones to enable deep stimulation of the reflex points. Using large stones to warm and massage the legs and feet, and smaller stones to work reflex points and deeper reflex areas results in a relaxing, restorative and deeply rejuvenating treatment. As with conventional reflexology, attention is paid to specific problem areas, while working on the body as a whole to create harmony and balance.


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.


Traditionally stones were heated in large water heaters making it more suitable as a clinic-based therapy. The introduction of mobile stone heating bags has allowed this to become a popular therapy option for mobile therapists too.
