The Japanese Healing Stone Therapy is essentially a hot stone massage in tandem with a pressured massage using a new range of oil products especially chosen for the hot stone treatment. It starts with your feet being placed in spa socks that moisturize your feet with heated cells of wax. Our therapists seemed very confident about performing this new massage and not once did we feel that there was some hesitancy. The first few moments were about getting us into that zen zone and getting the body to relax with a warm-up pressured massage while lying face down on our back, arms and legs. After a few moments, the hot stone experience begins.
The therapist holds one in each hand and expertly uses the hot smooth stones to massage our body and they are a wonderful sensation. It is easy to understand the benefits of the heat from the stones draining the bodies tired muscles of stress and reawakening the senses. For a millisecond you think the stones are a little hot, but you quickly acclimatize and enjoy the heat very much and the pressure being brought to the body simultaneously. The tension tacklers. Our signature treatment uses different-sized and shaped of natural volcano healing soapstones bathed in the bespoke luxurious Japanese five elements therapeutic oils from Lapidem Tokyo to ease muscle tension, remove toxins and work on the deeper levels of muscle pain efficiently with its long-lasting healing effects and nourishing rich minerals. This is the perfect choice to loosen you up and sleep deeply after a long and hectic day. After approximately 20-30 minutes, the therapist segues into a signature body massage with the traditional hand massage treatment which allows her to get to those knotted muscles in those hard to get places on your body that the hot stones can’t reach and it is a wonderful combination overall. The final moments are spent getting a head and shoulders massage and then it is time to relax by optimizing health in balance and harmony. It was heavenly!
