Indulgent Warmed basalt stones massage to allow your therapist to work deeper into the areas of concern
The hallmark of hot stone massage is the use of the heated stones. Basalt river rocks are used because they are smooth (from the river’s current) and retain heat well.
First, during an initial consultation, your therapist does a postural analysis and asks about any muscles that require special attention.
Once you are ready, your therapist begins by warming your muscles with light compressions.
Then the therapist uses anatomy to guide the placement and gliding of the stones, in combination with long gliding strokes, kneading, friction and vibration and regularly checks to ensure that the pressure is firm enough. As trigger points are located, direct pressure is applied to release the knots. Swedish massage therapy techniques are typically used during the massage, which may include long strokes and kneading and rolling.
After the massage, your therapist discusses a self-care plan and recommends follow-up treatments, if necessary.
People often describe hot stone massage as comforting and deeply relaxing. The warmth is soothing for people who tend to feel chilly. The heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to work deeper while using lighter pressure.

“5 STARS Massage! Michael worked on “The most Elite Cruise” ship in the World and that is a testimony to his massages! I’ve travelled the World having massages but Michael really is the BEST!!! Thank you, I will be back very soon!….”.
“Michael was superb- was ready when I arrived a few minutes early and begun the consultation. Though I booked a full body, he asked exactly what I wanted and tailored the treatment accordingly. I have really stiff, tight shoulders and was in quite a bit of discomfort when I arrived. Michael worked his magic, checking on pressure and comfort throughout the session. He advised on aftercare and different exercises to help alleviate the discomfort. All in all it was a great treatment- I felt so much better afterwards and will definitely return….”.
