Hot Stone Reflexology by Therapeaceful

Hot stones have been used in many different cultures for many years. Healers used rocks from the river beds and warmed them either in hot coals or hot water.

Placing the hot stones on cloth on the body and arranging them along the energy centres of the body would help to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, boosting a healing process.

The Benefits of Hot Stone Reflexology

Hot Stone Reflexology combines the benefits of an individual reflexology treatment with a number of different sized smaller warmed basalt stones to enable deep stimulation of the reflex points for a relaxing and deeply rejuvenating full body treatment. The heat from the stones quickly opens the energy pathways, improves the relaxation response and increases healing through improved blood flow and circulation.

The Treatment

This treatment is extremely relaxing and by working on the reflex points of the feet, your whole body will feel restored, balanced and revitalised. It is estimated that one stroke with a stone is worth five strokes with the hand, thus Hot Stone Reflexology is calculated to be five times deeper and last five times longer than a conventional treatment with the hands alone!

It is quite a different experience to a “conventional” Reflexology treatment.

Happy Customers

"As a person with Multiple Sclerosis I have been receiving the benefits of Reflexology for quite some time now. I started to have Reflexology treatments with Jacobine in February 2004 in the MS Therapy Centre in Edinburgh. I always look forward to my sessions with Jacobine and what with her calming manner and the treatment itself, it totally relaxes me and relieves me of stress. I can always look forward to a great nights sleep after it. It certainly works for me and I would highly recommend it." Lyndsay Gow
