"The Hot Stone Massage & Reiki rebalancing treatment, a Heavenly experience with the lovely Ivana. What a joy to feel so spoilt and to indulge myself in such a calm and well prepared professional environment. I felt good especially the following day! My body felt relaxed following some Reiki and a hot stone massage, but I
also noticed that my mood was elevated the following day also. I feel much more relaxed, this morning I got up and did a little wiggle, so my spirits are lifted too."
Great treatment worth every penny!
Absolutely divine !
I have always been prone to getting tension in the neck and shoulders especially when under a lot of stress. However, since having the Hot Stone massage I feel physically better and more relaxed.
Ivana has also given me some Reiki treatments which I must admit I was a bit sceptical about at first. however it has been amazing!!! I have had a lot of issues on my mind but, since receiving Reiki I have felt so much calmer about things.

In certain cases cold stones may also be used to help with muscular injuries, to reduce inflammation or tone muscles which can be helpful when losing weight. The application of cold stones stimulates the nervous system causing the blood vessels to contract and increases lymph flow which helps to remove toxins, whilst giving your immune system a welcome boost.
What are the benefits of Cold Stones?
- Cold marble stones may be used for injuries
- They are particularly good for the immune system offering it a welcome boost
- Chilled marble stones are powerful and assist in decongesting and pushing fluid and wastes from overworked, inflamed, tense muscular tissues which interrupt the pain- spasm-pain cycle
- After working with the heated stones, the chilled marbles stones move fluids effectively within the body. This is therapeutic and healing due to the alternate constriction and dilation of the blood vessels
- In massage, cold marble stones do not desensitise the skin, as ice can
- Cold challenges the body, toning and strengthening many of the body's systems an excellent treatment to boost your immunity and tone muscles
A brief History of Hot Stones
Mother Earth's gift of volcanic stones have been used by many different cultures for thousands of years. Basalt is an igneous rock produced under conditions of intense heat and solidified from molten lava.
In ancient times many healers used rocks from the river beds and warmed them on hot coals or in hot water and then placed the hot stones, wrapped in cloth, along the energy centre's of the body. This would help to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, initiating a deep healing process.
Native American women would use the warm stones in the same way that we use hot water bottles. These precious stones are revered and are highly respected by Hawaiian people. Hot Stone Therapy was brought into modern day by Mary Nelson a Massage Therapist from Arizona in the mid nineties and is widely used around the world today.
