Hawaiian Hot Stone Massage is an Ancient art and possibly the ultimate in relaxation massages. The use of hot stones and Hawaiian Lomi Lomi massage techniques help create a state of deep relaxation and mental & emotional harmony.
Hot Stone Massage dates back thousands of years. The application of heat to the body and the relaxing effects this has on muscles and the nervous system has been recognized by numerous ancient civilizations.
Heated stones were used by the Chinese at around 2000 BC, Egyptians in their ceremonies, and hot rocks have also been used by Native American Indians. In Hawaii, stones were coupled with the beautiful Ka Huna and Lomi Lomi massages.
Other traditional healers used stones from river beds and heated them in thermal pools or with hot coals. In Bali it is believed that the batu stones are filled with vitality and energy of the water that flows over them in an eternal stream.
This exotic treatment hasn’t really changed since. The stones are hand-chosen for size, shape and texture. They are basalt, (lava stones) that have been smoothed over thousands of years by continuous wave action.
We immerse them in heated water, then place them on key energy centres (chakras) to begin the relaxation process and harmonise the spirit and emotions, melting stress from tired painful muscles, and preparing the body for more profound work.
A variety of different shaped & sized stones are then used to massage in a firm, rhythmic sequence using the long flowing strokes of the incredible Hawaiian Ka Huna massage along with pure coconut and essential oils.
This is an amazing full-body massage and sensory experience! Hawaiian hot stone massage is one of the most deeply relaxing and blissful treatments in the world, and should not be missed.
Stone massage improves the circulation and calms the nervous system. It is recommended for those with stress, anxiety and tension, neck, shoulder and back pain, poor circulation, arthritic pain, insomnia, and depression.
