Last week I had the most amazing massage at Renaissance Beauty Salon in St Helens by the fabulous therapist Vicky. It was actually one of the most relaxing, indulgent, and satisfying body treatments I have ever had. For a full body massage it is £45 and for a hot stone back neck and shoulder massage it is £30 and worth absolutely every penny. I came out feeling totally relaxed and revitalised. 

What is hot stone therapy?

At the start of a hot stone therapy, smooth water-heated basalt stones are carefully applied to key points on the body. This direct heat relaxes the muscles, which means that the massage itself is more effective and intense than it would be otherwise. The size of the stones varies, according to which part of the body they’re being used on.

The stones are coated in fragrant oil to increase your sense of relaxation and calm. When oil is smoothed gently onto the body, each stone in turn can be worked along by the therapist’s hands.

What is hot stone therapy good for?

This was the perfect treatment for me as I train quite alot in the gym and have been doing alot of lower body work so the massage really helped my leg muscles where they had become a bit stiff. The combination of relaxing warmth and refreshing coolness is thought to encourage the body to detox and heal, increasing lymph flow and helping to flush out waste. The body becomes relaxed in a much shorter space of time, and the therapist can focus on a deep working of the tissues using both stone and hand strokes.

Hot stone therapy will help to boost your circulation, release stored tension anad recharge your energy levels. There are also many health benefits  and can help people who suffer from muscular pain, poor circulation, rheumatic and arthritic conditions, fibromyalgia, back pain, stress and insomnia.

Hot stone massage is definitely a must on my list and i can not wait to return for my next one.
