Hot Stone Massage
A hot stone massage is a massage of the body with stones of approximately 45 degrees Celsius. The heat and the 'pressure' of the stones penetrate deep into the muscles and relieves tension.
Round basalt stones are used for the massage. Basalt is a hard and ferruginous volcanic rock with a high density. This allows the stones to retain heat well.
Warmth and relaxation
The stones are dipped in a warm water bath and placed on the focus areas of the body first, usually your back. This gives a pleasant warmth and relaxation. The stones give a certain pressure, which you can compare with a stretching exercise. This is most noticable when you remove the stone.
After putting the hot stones on the body, you will be further massaged with the warm stones and warm oil. Hot stone massage provides deep relaxation and detoxification.
The massage mainly consists of long calm and circular strokes. Due to the combination of heat and movement, the massage works deeper into the muscle tissue which makes it extra effective.
A hot stone massage contributes to the self-recovery of the body, removes waste products, stimulates the organs and brings the body more in balance.

Lomi Lomi is a holistic massage form from Hawaii. It is a wonderfully relaxing full body massage.
The body is massaged with warm oil and beautiful long flowing movements as if waves of the ocean wash over your body. The massage is mainly done with the forearms and covers the entire body, from crown to toes with a lot of oil. To enable the long flowing strokes you will be covered only with a sarong. The lomi lomi is given with loving hands; completely in the here and now with loving attention and a loving heart. The emphasis is on total physical and mental relaxation and less on loosening the muscles.
