Ancient Practice, Modern Techniques

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 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.
