Hot Stone Massage Bliss

Hot stone massage therapy is known for its ability to melt away tension, ease muscle stiffness and improve circulation and metabolism... it is quite possibly one of the most soothing, meditative and relaxing treatments possible.

The use of hot stones for healing dates back to ancient times and the basic premise behind it is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers. 

Stones are typically made from highly tactile river-smoothed basalt, a rock rich in iron which naturally retains heat; they come in a variety of sizes and are warmed safely in a thermostatically controlled heater to a temperature that is comfortable for you ...some people have a higher tolerance than others! 

At Just Massage, following warming herbal tea, a treatment begins with the placing of heated, smooth stones on key specific points of the body including palms of the hands and between the toes. 

More hot stones of varying sizes are then used to massage the body following a light application of your chosen aromatherapy oil. The oil not only helps the stones to glide more effectively but adds another "layer" of relaxation as the essential oils work their healing magic through your skin and senses. As the heat of the stones warms and relaxes the muscles, deeper pressure can then also be applied if you desire...

The hot stones when placed and moved over the skin, expand blood vessels which encourages increased blood flow throughout the body.  The effect is both healing and sedative and can help to relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote DEEP relaxation.

Some of the many benefits of this highly therapeutic treatment include...

  • Decreased muscle tension, pain and spasms
  • Reduced chronic stress, anxiety and tension
  • Relief from the pain associated with fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other chronic conditions.
  • Increased flexibility in joints, improving mobility and movement
  • Relief from the pain and tension created by strained and contracted muscles
  • Improved circulation
  • Increased feeling of well-being, which can contribute to better sleep patterns and relief from depression
  • Hot stone massage is also suited to people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage.

The Just Massage full body hot stone massage takes around 1½ hours (sometimes a little longer!) and by the end of it, we guarantee you will feel utterly, deeply and blissfully relaxed.
