“We recommend the Hot Stone Massage especially if you are experiencing early symptoms of a cold and fatigue,” suggests the therapist after hearing about early symptoms of a cold and fatigue.

 “It is always best to do a steam bath before the treatment. This prepares your body for the massage,” advices the therapist.

Increased temperature of the steam bath improves blood circulation. Heat opens up pores that allow it to better absorb oxygen and other minerals. A few minutes in the steam bath result in visibly moisturized skin. It also helps detoxify the body. “The warm air will also give you immediate relief from congestion.” The schedule for the entire evening is cleared, allowing for a leisurely bathing experience just before what promises to be a rejuvenating massage.

The body is prepared for healing stone therapy with a lymphatic massage. Kneading of the body prior to application of heated stones aid in initial easing of knots and tension. It is first done on soles of the feet moving up to the calves, knees and thighs. Soothing strokes on the neck, shoulders, back and arms help ease discomfort from spending long hours in front of the computer. The scent of coconut oil infused with orange invigorates the senses.

A feeling of relief, rejuvenation and restored balance envelops the body after over 120 minutes of treatment. It is a well-deserved treat especially for the mind, body and soul especially after the hustle and bustle of the holiday rush.
