Remedial Stone Fusion – ‘The Best of Both Worlds’
What is remedial stone fusion?
Remedial stone fusion is the combination of two superior bodywork treatments: remedial deep tissue massage with the help of heated natural basalt stones and/or cooled marble stones. Just as massage therapy, stone healing arts date back thousands of years. Stones warmed by fire were used by Native Americans for the treatment of muscle aches and other ailments. And ancient Chinese healers wrapped hot bricks and stones in cloth to detoxify the body, to relieve muscle pain and to harmonize and balance the body.
What happens in a Remedial Stone Fusion treatment?
Thermotherapy – You will receive a full body remedial massage treatment with hot basalt stones. The heat of the stones allows the body tissue to relax very quickly as the heat of the stones helps to dilate the blood vessels and so increase the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to body tissue and muscles. Remedial techniques combined with hot stone techniques are very effective. This fusion allows for deeper pressure on muscles and trigger points to be better tolerated and has a faster effect on pain, stiffness and body de-toxification.
Cryotherapy – The use of cold marble stones dispels heat and therefore reduces pain and inflammation. Arthritic areas, areas recovering from injury benefit from a cryotherapy treatment. Cold stones applied to facial areas can reduce sinus congestion and cool ‘neck pillows’ can relieve headache. The cooled stones are refreshing and energising and bring relief after workouts and to joints that are swollen as the cold counteracts inflammation.
An alternating application of thermotherapy (hot stones) and cryotherapy (cold stones) produces the deepest thermo-therapeutic healing: it relaxes the muscles, de-congests the tissues and eases sore points. Alternating hot and cold treatments are highly effective for stress reduction, anxiety, pain and poor circulation.
