What is Hot Stone Massage?
Also called Hot Rock Therapy, it is a type of massage that uses hot stones on various parts of the body such as the back, legs, shoulders, neck, palms of the hands and soles of the feet.
Applications include the placing of hot stones over key points in the body to help soften stiff areas as well as using the Stones to create massage strokes in order to induce a deep, relaxing and healing treatment.
The heat of the stones warms the skin, aids the absorption of therapeutic oils, while at the same time preparing the musculature of the body for deep tissue work if necessary.
How Does Hot Stone Massage Work?
The stones which are usually made of basalt, a type of rock rich in iron, are either immersed in water and heated in an electric pan or are placed on a heat pad. The use of the Hot Stones on the body helps blood flow circulation and calms the nervous system.
Hot stone massage is useful for treating a wide range of health conditions including:
- Anxiety, stress and tension
- Arthritis, osteoarthritis
- Back aches and pains
- Cold feet
- Poor Circulation
- Poor Detoxification
What results can you expect from Hot Stone Massage?
The primary result is experience total bliss and serenity! On top of that, the use of the hot stones allows for deeper work with your muscles without the pain that you may experience from a deep tissue massage.
The combination of heat and oils (blended to suit your condition) helps eliminate toxins and waste products from the body by activating your metabolic state and relieving stress and tension.

I was in the midst of a personal crisis, or what I believed was a personal crisis, I turned to Daniel for help, and was introduced to MiCBT... MiCBT taught me how to deal with negative thoughts, in a positive way, without medication. MiCBT is now in practice every day of my life, I owe a lot to its teacher, and its design.
Our business would not be the same, the magic you wield and the results you have made with us are truly incredible. You have an amazing ability to get to the core of a situation and gently but firmly guide us to resolve and heal this.
I am no longer on painkillers and I haven't had to go to the hospital. The pain is something in my past. The pain relief wasn't immediate but I had waited 15 years so for me it was immediate. I noticed a decrease in pain straight away and it continued to lessen as time went on.
Exactly what I wanted, I blissed out and relaxed, what a great way to start the weekend. I loved the dim lighting, soothing music, warm towels and warm massage table... brilliant practitioner and friendly, professional atmosphere.
I have been hive free for over three months and I am able to reintroduce the foods that were causing problems as well as continuing on important supplements and vitamins that promote a good immune system and nutrients. I have not felt this good in a very long time. I am completely back to the confident and happy person that I have always been.
After my treatment I felt like my whole body was moving and supporting itself to move more naturally.
As my naturopath, confidant, and mentor, Daniel has guided me to explore all of life's possibilities and strive for freedom. For his unconditional support and encouragement, I will remain eternally thankful.
I feel the best I have felt in years. I have more energy and my mood and concentration have improved considerably. Not to mention getting my cycle back which I hadn't had for a couple of years.
