Looking for a Hot Stone massage in Canada Water, London, SE16? Hot stone massage is a deeply warming massage encouraging the body to detox and heal, by increasing lymph and circulation within the body.
Hot stone massage therapy is a treatment which involves the placement of water-heated, iron-rich stones at key points on the body. The aim of a hot stone massage is to relax the muscles and ease tension. Stones are cleaned, sanitised and heated in water, before being placed on different parts of the body.
