A deep healing and relaxing massage using heated stones applied directly to the skin to melt away tension and ease aching muscles

  • Are you struggling to sleep?

  • Do you live with muscle fatigue or painful joints?

  • Do you live with arthritis or fibromyalgia?

A Hot Stone Massage at Haelan Therapy in Hitchin, Hertfordshire combines the use of hot stones with a body massage. This Hot Stone Massage treatment creates a deep healing and relaxing experience.  It melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases your circulation and metabolism.  It promotes deep muscle relaxation by the placement of heated organic basalt stones at key points on your body.  The stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.  It is an excellent therapy for deep muscular relaxation as the effect of the hot stones increases the blood flow to painful areas bringing more nutrients to the muscle area.  The deep heat also promotes a speedier healing rate by stimulating your natural metabolic rate.  The process increases the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the muscle helping to heal damaged tissue.  Overall it is a deeply relaxing, detoxing and healing experience.

How does the treatment work?

Choose from a 45 minute treatment which concentrates on our back, neck and shoulders or a 60 minute treatment which focuses on your entire body including your arms and legs.   Your treatment will include an in- depth consultation that will give you the opportunity to consider where you are now and where you want to be after the treatment.  As you lie down on the table, your Therapist will apply massage wax to your skin.  Once you’ve fully relaxed and have got used to the warm sensation, your therapist will gently glide the stones over your body, stopping every now and again to rest them on different areas of your legs and back.  From the moment you close your eyes, you will feel the stress of life simply melting away.
