Hot Stone – A Massage With Extras
By Elizabeth Halliday-Reynolds
Some of the stones used in our hot stone sessions are basalt stones that have been smoothed from years of water erosion. Some are hand picked from the coast of Rhode Island. We even have Himalayan salt stones that warm so gently as they surround your tissues with the health benefits of negative ions. We treat our stones with care and see them all as a sacred connection to earth and fire. These stones are heated to help relax your muscles and and encourage blood flow to the area being massaged. Your therapist will either lay the stones on your body in a stationary manor or used them in a flowing manner to massage your muscles.
You will love the warmth of hot stones. Aside from your delight, your body will also experience improved blood circulation, decreased stress, anxiety and tension. People with chronic back pain, poor circulation, insomnia will love this session.

The Works! – 120 Minutes – Book
Ever need to to just hit reset? Get Tuned in? I’ve created “The Works”, a 2 hour session that starts by pulling a past, present, future card spread. This will help focus your energy in the session. I’ll incorporate energy work (reiki, polarity, cranio-sacral), massage (deep tissue and Swedish), sound therapy, chakra chromo therapy imagery (sometimes guided) and the grounding use of crystals, hot stones and towels. The WooWoo is real and you are YOU, only “reset” better. Clients have marveled at troubles melting away, tensions easing, experienced lucid dreaming and eureka moments. One client said, “this is not a massage, this is an experience.”
Considerations: You should not get a hot stone massage if you are pregnant or have a sunburn. You also may want to reconsider if you are menopausal, as this could trigger a hot flash. If you are on any medications that list heat as a contraindication, reconsider getting this service.
