Stone Therapy

Stone therapy, also known as hot stone massage, is an exceptionally relaxing treatment, rooted in ancient therapy practices and used to create balance within the body. Hot basalt and cold marble stones are used, with the positioning and temperature of the stones tailored to the individual client. A stone therapy treatment provides a deep massage to the whole body as well as concentrated areas.

Stone Therapy - Holistic Therapy methodsStone therapy is based upon geothermal therapy, which is the application of either heated or chilled stone to the body for the purpose of changing physiological responses.

The Holistic Team's Cheltenham based therapist will apply warm, oiled stones in several ways during the treatment.

Stones will be placed on the body, delivering heat to concentrated areas and your therapist will massage other areas of the body with more heated stones in comfortable strokes.

Cold stones are also useful for muscle injuries as they have a soothing effect.
