Welcome to our autumn newsletter - it's amazing to see the changing and beautiful colours already on the trees. So, we can all get back to some sort of normality now that the children have gone back to school, so why not treat yourself to a relaxing break at the spa with some of our wonderful treatments and offers.
This month we're explaining all about Hot Stone Massage - what it is, how it works, how it can help you. We're also bringing you details of some new workshops and information about some local businesses. We've also got a special offer for the great Temujin stir-fry restaurant.
So read on for more details.....
Hot Stone Massage - What is it?
We're often asked 'what's the difference between a hot stone massage and a Swedish massage?' Pictures of the hot stone massage show the stones placed along the client's spine, and people often think that this is how the hot stones are used. But it's much more than that!
In a hot stone massage, we use warmed smooth volcanic stones to do the massage, rather than the therapist using their hands.
You get the benefit of a normal massage but the heat from the stones goes really deeply into your muscles so it's really soothing. You just melt away! It really is quite blissful!
So, a normal Swedish massage is good for working away knots and relieving tension. And a hot stone massage is great for relaxing the muscles and is more of a soothing treatment, bringing warmth and deep relaxation to your muscles and body.
At the spa we offer both types of massage and we can do either a back massage or a full body massage with either type of treatment. For further details click here.
