Hot & Cold Salt Stone Facial Massage
The Hot/Cold Stone & Salt Stone Facial Massage Therapy is a treatment of the purest energies for mind, body and soul. I use a selection of Hot and Cold Basalt Stones together with warmed Himalayan Salt Stones to stimulate cell renewal, heal and re-energise the skin while promoting a feeling of wellbeing.
Benefits of Hot Stones
- Promotes deep muscle and tissue relaxation
- Heat from the stones allows manipulation of a greater intensity than with basic massage
- Improved circulation as muscles have an increased blood supply
- Lymphatic function increases due to general increase in circulation
- Releases toxins
- Alleviates stress
- Calms the psyche
- Heat relieves pain in muscles and joints
- Tension in connective tissue is decreased
- One stroke with a stone is equal to ten normal massage strokes.
- The treatment is said to be ten times deeper and the results are said to last ten times longer than traditional techniques
- There is a deep comfort in receiving warmth on the face
- Relaxes the mind and helps insomnia
- Deep relaxation - the warmth relaxes both physically and mentally
Benefits of Cold Stones
Cold stones are excellent because they promote circulation and act as a powerful decongestant for the body. By promoting circulation, a cold stone treatment can ease inflamed tissues, decrease muscle spasms, and can reduce swelling or fluid build-up (for example, as manifested in dark circles under the eyes). Unlike with the use of ice, cold stone treatments will not severely desensitise the skin. The overall effect of a treatment is the reduction of tension with a simultaneous feeling of invigoration. Switching between cold and hot applications causes blood vessels to alternately dilate and constrict, leading to increased movement of fluids within the body, increased removal of toxins and increased healing.
Benefits of Salt Mineral Stones
Himalayan Salt Mineral Stone Massage is an innovative healing technique using warm salt crystal stones to ground and balance the body's electromagnetic field, central nervous system and meridians. Salt crystals from an ancient primal sea beneath the Himalayan Mountains are hand-carved into massage stones that gently soothe away an accumulation of stress, tension and pollutants. Very Deep Relaxation, reduced inflammation, improved sleep and improved nervous disorders.
