Hot-stones massage – 90 minutes
The Hot-stones is a traditional ancient method of massaging. The key element are the hot stones that are warmed up to approximately 60º C. I exclusively use basalt stones due to their volcanic origin and their ability to retain heat. These are flat stones smoothed by water to remove any sharp edges. The hot stones are not just simply placed on the body but are used as a massage instrument. Marble stones or ice cubes could be used during the treatment to provide a very enjoyable thermal contrast alongside the hot stones.
