Hot stone massage Cairns is a very effective and natural way to unlock your muscles. Combining ancient practices with modern techniques, it enables a deeply healing massage, without the need for unnecessary pressure. Although it’s called hot stone massage, cold stones can be utilized as well to reduce inflammation.
Hot stone massage utilizes a combination of basalt stones and massage movement, to relax and unwind, releasing those knots and niggles. Our preferred base oil is unrefined organic coconut oil, which can be combined with essential oils (we like peppermint, lavender or citrus). We recommend these massages to anyone wanting a deeply relaxing and healing massage.
Hot stone massage unlocks your muscles, improves your circulation and elevates your mood. Its highly relaxing and therapeutic, as well as being practical and effective at delivering results. We also offer cold stone massage, which is helpful in reducing muscle inflammation. Contact us for more information. All treatments are claimable on Private health.
Hot stone massage is an ancient practice, which has been utilized by many cultures to provide relief and assist healing, most notably by the Chinese and Hawaiian peoples.
The heated stones are essentially a natural heat pack. In a hot stone massage, the stones are heated and then cooled to the desired temperature for the treatment. They are placed on key muscular and pressure points of the body, on a towel, and left to sit and release their heat directly into the site.
This helps to release muscle tension and stress, enabling a deeper and more effective massage without the need for pressure.
One of the central philosophies at Knots and Niggles Massage is to help heal and treat the body, through massage and movement.
Hot stone massage complements our vision perfectly; using natural stones as an extension of our massage movements, to deliver practical solutions for our customers.
Each of our massages begins with a full body assessment, which is complimentary and in addition to your booked treatment time. This enables us to identify the specific pressure points, which can be targeted and treated, to provide the relief you are looking for. Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your appointment time, to allow time for this.
WOW what a wonderful remedial massage with Juliana. She is absolutely brilliant. I am now going weekly to release my shoulders, neck and sciatica in the hips. Originally went for my very sore feet but now continuing for other issues I have. Juliana really knows the mechanics of the body.
Lizzie is a super star! Both knowledgeable and intuitive - Lizzie clearly knows her craft but also 'feels' what's needed in terms of problem areas and pressure required with confidence and precision. Get in to see her while she still has room in her Diary. You'll be glad you did!!
Lovely relaxing Lymphatic Drainage Massage from Salena this morning. I felt an improvement with my energy levels with the first hour after my massage. I look forward to benefiting from future massages.
Luke Bulian was absolutely brilliant! I highly recommend and am looking forward to my next massage.
I first saw Lizzie about a year ago now after reading the exceptional reviews and recommendations, and to say I was impressed was an understatement. Lizzie is a massage goddess! She can tell where I’m tight and muscles that need working on just by looking at me, and the difference I feel after massage/dry needling with her is incredible. I see her religiously every week now and there is no one else I trust more with my body, especially given my intense training regime and the importance of me being in top shape. She genuinely cares about her clients and is also one of the most loveliest people you will ever meet. I look forward to our sessions every week and could not recommend her higher. Would give 6 stars if I could!
Very impressed with Luke! He listened to what I felt was wrong and then worked appropriately to loosen up my chest and shoulders. A couple of sessions and I feel great!
I have had a pregnancy massage with Lizzie and Salena, both were amazing. I highly recommend.
After reading her 5 star reviews on Facebook I decided to book in for a remedial massage & glad to say it was the best massage I’ve ever had!!! I went to Lizzie with tight muscles & knots & she worked her magic & soothed my whole body. There were muscles in my body I didn’t even know I was having dramas with until after when I could actually move pain free! She is so down to earth & friendly too - Amazing!
I had a Sports Massage by Luke. I'm a cyclist and have all the tightness and pain that comes with that. He really hits the spots and I feel a lot looser. I will definitely be back.
Wow ... thank you sooo much for the amazing massage today Lizzy. You are one talented lady with special hands. Cannot recommend Lizzy enough. Feeling great and will be even better tomorrow and the next day. So relaxing and very professional. Lovely studio and nice environment.
If you want a massage that fixes up your knots and niggles, you must go to Knots and Niggles! I always have a tight back due to the nature of my work and getting a massage here makes both my back and me feel so good. I can sit straight and get through the work week much easier. Very professional team and they make you feel very comfortable too.
Lizzie has been working on me for a few sessions now. She's amazing! Professional, witty, down to earth. With her additional skills with Dry Needling and Cupping I'm well and truly on the way to feeling like I did 4yrs ago pre injury. Highly recommend for your remedial massage cure.
Excellent therapeutic treatment and a real focus on getting the most out of your session.
Had a great 1 hr massage with Salena! Feel so much better, will be back in future.
Don't let this perfectly accurate review of Lizzie's incredible knowledge and magical skills make your mind up on whether or not you want to book an appointment asap with her - Go and see and feel for yourself! Her skill to pin point where you're feeling pain throughout your body is ridiculously accurate. Stop wasting your money elsewhere and do yourself a tremendous favour and BOOK NOW with Lizzie. Lizzie is phenomenal! 5 Stars from me!!!
I went and saw Lizzie because of scar and adhesion issues. She was very knowledgeable, and I felt at ease straight away. I felt so comfortable and relaxed! Finally, some blood flow and I had this warm belly feeling that was just amazing! Highly recommend seeing Lizzie.
It takes a lot for my fiance Matt to say that he had a really good massage, he's pretty hard to impress...but that's what he came home and said to me after he went to see Lizzie! Highly recommend her, she's a wonderful person inside and out, she loves what she does and it shows. Thankyou! I now have a knot and niggle-free fiancé.
I love Lizzy’s massages. She’s the one person I trust entirely to make me feel better and allow me to continue to massage every week. Thanks Lizzy for making me feel human.
