Try Hot Stones in your reflexology for added relaxation!
Hot Stones have been used for centuries, as ancient civilisations in India, South America, Ancient Rome, Egypt and China believed they could be used to cleanse and heal the body, ground the soul and ease the mind.
The stones used are made of basalt, a type of rock rich in iron, which allows them to retain their heat. Their use in reflexology is thought to enhance the treatment as it had been estimated that one stroke of a hot stone is worth five strokes with the hand, as the stone can work deeper into the reflexes of the foot. Furthermore many people feel that the relaxation effects last longer. The heat and pressure from the stones allows the body to relax to the deepest level, creating harmony and well being in the body. The potential benefits of using hot stones in a reflexology treatment include:
Heat penetrating to a much deeper level than finger pressure, reaching around 7cm into tissues. This brings about physiological changes as well as improving energy flow;
Improvement of blood circulation & lymphatic drainage;
Promoting the release & elimination of toxins;
Boosting immunity and the lymphatic function;
Relieving tension in connective tissues;
Reducing muscular tension which will help muscles to relax and repair more efficiently;
It is warming, deeply relaxing & soothing helping to melt away any tension or anxiety;
Helping to bring about a balance of body as well as mind.
Stones are firstly used to massage the calf muscles to relieve any tension in this area and help to enhance energy flow. Smaller stones are then used to work the reflex areas and points of the feet. The heat from the stones quickly opens the reflex pathways bringing about a much deeper level of relaxation than Reflexology alone.
