HOT STONE REFLEXOLOGY

WHAT IS HOT STONE REFLEXOLOGY?

 

A reflex is a specific area or point on the foot or hand that corresponds to another part of the body. Applying pressure to stimulate these points will release congestion and allow the body to naturally heal itself.

The same principles as reflexology apply except that hot stones are used to stimulate the reflexes. 

 

The heat from the stones penetrates to a deeper level and may reach up to 7-8cms into the superficial layer of muscle. This brings about physiological changes as well as improving energy flow, allowing for deeper relaxation and creating harmony and balance.

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HOT STONE REFLEXOLOGY?

 

  • increased circulation and lymphatic drainage

  • increased elimination of waste products and toxins from your body

  • reduced muscle tension and a release of tension in connective tissue

  • strengthens the immune system

  • de-stresses and promotes relaxation

  • promotes sleep

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN ATTENDING A TREATMENT FOR HOT STONE REFLEXOLOGY

 

Before the first session you will receive an online consultation form that will need to be returned before your first treatment.

 

At the beginning of your treatment you will be asked to remove your shoes and socks and you can either lie or sit on the treatment couch. You will need to wear clothes that can be pulled up to knee. It will be explained how hot stone reflexology works and what to expect in the session.

 

Balm will then be rubbed into the feet and on the legs up to the knees before the hot stones are worked on the feet and legs.

 

At the end of the treatment feedback and aftercare advice will be given.
