What is Hot Stone Reflexology?
Reflexology is a form of natural, holistic therapy based on the discovery that there are points on the feet and hands which correspond to organs, systems and structures within the entire body. This corresponding relationship is called a “reflex”. A reflex is when a stimulation at one point brings about a response in another point or area. In Reflexology, by using special pressure techniques to stimulate the points on the feet and hands, imbalances in the tissues, organs and systems of the body can be both detected and effectively treated to restore balance and well-being.
My Hot Stone Reflexology treatment includes a standard Reflexology treatment with the addition of the Hot Stones to work all areas to a much deeper level. The heat from the stones penetrates to a such a deep level they may reach 7-8 cms into the superficial layer of muscle, bringing about physiological changes as well as influencing the body’s internal energy flow (Chi), therefore bringing about balance to both body and mind.
As well as the usual benefits of Reflexology, there are many benefits of adding Hot Stones to a standard Reflexology treatment. The heat of the stones promotes the release of tension in the connective tissues, muscle tension in the calves and feet are released, relaxation is deeper, lymphatic function is increased as well as the action of the leukocytes in the body which means that the body’s ability to fight infections is increased and the elimination of waste products is improved, meaning that organs are cleansed.
What to expect
You will be reclining on my heated couch fully supported with pillows and covered with a comforting blanket. Only your feet and lower legs need to be exposed. Your feet are cleansed using hot towels prior to the treatment commencing. The temperature of the stones will be tested with you to ensure your comfort at all times.
A Hot Stone Reflexology treatment lasts for 1 hour and 15 minutes and costs just £55.
For that added touch of luxury, and to enhance the relaxing and stress relieving benefits of your treatment, why not add the use of essential Aromatherapy oils for an extra £5?
