What to expect during a hot stone massage

After being greeted by your therapist, we will hold a short consultation to establish if your preference is for relaxing or active deep stone treatment. Also if you have any particular areas of concern. 

Your therapist will use smooth, warmed stones to massage your body using Swedish massage techniques including circular movements, kneading, tapping and vibrations. 

Your therapist may place stones along your body including your back, stomach, face, palms, feet and between your fingers and toes.

I had a deep tissue massage and hot stone therapy with Lica today and can honestly say it was the best massage I’ve ever had. I’ve been suffering for a while with an extremely tight back and shoulders and Lica really knew exactly where to massage and what pressure to use. I’d definitely recommend Lica she really knows her stuff. Can’t wait till my next session. Thank you.

I had a lovely hot stones massage with Lica, mixed with some much needed deep tissue massage. Lica was very friendly and keen to make sure I got from the massage what I needed. I can’t recommend enough!
