Hot Stone Massage
Whilst the modern Hot Stone Massage treatment as we know it was founded in Arizona, hot stones have traditionally been used for both practical and healing purposes by many cultures, for many thousands of years and all over the world.
The hot stones are volcanic basalt in origin. The powerful heat transferance ability of the stones promotes a meditative, sedative effect; both calming and deeply relaxing. During the treatment, the heat is conducted by blood circulation from the surface layer of the skin to deeper layers of muscle and tissue. The heat also increases the rate of circulation for both blood and lymphatic systems bringing about an increase in cellular metabolism. This increases the rate at which fresh nutrients and oxygen are brought to the cells and tissues whilst also increasing the rate at which blood and lymph is detoxified. As the treatment progresses, the heat penetrates deeper into muscle tissues and joints increasing flexibilty of both joints and muscles.
Hot stone massage goes beyond the physical experience of typical massage and enters into deeper dimensions of relaxation, health and well-being. The warmth of the heated stones penetrates deep into muscle and tissue to balance the nervous system like no other treatment. Described as pure bliss, this massage is considered to be 10 times more effective than normal massage.

Hopi Ear Candling, or Thermo Auricular Treatment, is a wonderfully relaxing and beneficial treatment that is used by many people as a safe, gentle alternative to syringing wax build up from the ears. The treatment consists of candling to each ear in turn, followed by a pressure point massage to specific points on the face and finally a relaxing massage to the face and head. Both the pressure point and face/head massage work to ensure the maximum benefit is derived from the effects of the ear candles by further assisting the drainage of sinus, mucous and earwax from the head.
The treatment stimulates the peripheral flow of blood to the head and neck, increasing the supply of oxygen and nourishing nutrients to the tissues; it stimulates and improves lymphatic drainage and metabolism to the head and neck and so stimulates the immune system.
Hopi ear candling may be useful for the following conditions: Snoring - Labyrinthitis - Sleep Apnoea - Sinusitis/Rhinitis - Excessive or compacted earwax - 'Glue' ear - Patulous Eustachian Tube (PET) - Colds and Flu - Headaches and Migraine - Tinnitus - Meuniere's Disease - Neuralgia of Facial Nerve - Blocked Tear Duct - Loss or reduction of smell - Swimmer's or Surfer's ear - Flying or Diving pressure problems - Motion Sickness - Vertigo and Dizziness - TMJ (jaw joint) dysfunction - Tense Neck Muscles - Disturbance to lymphatic system.
