Hydrotherm Massage

pure indulgence imageImagine you are floating on a bed of warm water. You are about to experience a complete body massage - but you aren't going to turn over even once! Lying on two warm water cushions, kept at a pleasurable 37 degrees, you remain face up throughout the entire treatment. Your whole body is supported in perfect spinal alignment. The usual disruption of turning over halfway through your treatment is avoided. The sensation of floating and the feeling of warmth envelopes you… Whatever type of treatment you are about to experience - a full body or back massage, a beauty treatment or facial, a remedial or physiotherapy treatment - you will be more comfortable and relaxed than with any conventional type of treatment.

How does it work?

The relaxing warmth of the Hydrotherm System promotes an immediate sensation of well being, enhancing the therapeutic effect of the massage. The gentle heat of the water helps to soothe painful areas allowing the Therapist to work more deeply with less discomfort for the client. Through water displacement rather than through physically lifting the client, Hydrotherm permits the therapist to work using the client's body weight as the source of pressure, facilitating a deeper, more holistic massage technique.

Hot Stones

pure indulgence imageStone massage therapy has been used in many different cultures for many years. Healers used rocks from the river beds and warmed them either in hot coals or hot water. Placing the hot stones on cloth and arranging them along the energy centres of the body would help to relax the muscles and reduce pain or discomfort, boosting a healing process.

How does it work?

During a treatment the client lies on a couch or a series of flat hot and cool stones Hot The placing of the stones can be followed by a massage which can be deeper and more intense as heat penetrates the body and relaxes the muscles. In certain cases cold stones can also be used to help muscular injury and inflammation. Warm stones expand the blood vessels, helping to move blood faster round the body, sedating the nervous system. The application of cold stones stimulates the nervous system by causing the blood vessels to contract and increasing the lymph flow of waste materials around the body.
