Frequently Asked Questions

What areas does a Hot & Cold Stone Massage treat?

When the hot stones are applied, blood vessels dilate to allow for more blood to flow into the area. When the cold stones are applied thereafter, there is a momentary constriction of the blood vessels due to the large difference in temperature. This constriction pushes blood and lymph out of the area, which warms and cleanses muscle tissue and organs as the body is challenged to maintain homeostasis.

What happens during a Hot & Cold Stone Massage?

A full consultation will be taken before each treatment. The Hot & Cold Stone Massage therapy is a full-body treatment, where the stones are placed inside the therapist's hands who then glides the stones in a rhythmic sequence covering the area to be worked on. New stones are replaced as the temperature diminishes or as a different part of the body is to be treated.

What should I wear?

During a Hot and Cold Stone Massage, your Fourward Health Massage therapist will ask you to undress for your Massage whilst they wait outside. We ask you to keep your underwear on, remove all jewelry and to drape one of our white, fluffy towels over yourself to ensure your modesty and privacy. We may move the towel from time to time during the Massage as we move around the body, however, we will always respect your privacy.
