Cryo-Thermal Stone Massage (La Stone Therapy)     60 minutes      £70

Harnessing the benefits of hot basalt stone and chilled marble stones alternating to bring about proven physiological benefits to the body and mind.  Hot stones to relax tight, stressed muscles and cold to reduce inflammation and id muscle recovery.  Boosts energy, reduces stress and promotes a feeling of wellbeing.

The variable temperatures have physiological benefits when alternated, triggering the bodies self healing and reenergising response.  The response can be particularly helpful added to sports recovery programmes

A hot and cold treatment is likely to enhance your recovery after exercise and reduce muscle swelling in a more positive way than rest alone.  Heal damaged tissues, reducing pain and relaxing the fascia (a type of connective tissue which runs throughout the body).

As the stones are alternated your body becomes more relaxed and the difference in temperature of the stones becomes less noticeable

When hot stones and cold stones are combined and used alternately it increases circulation even more than when either is used alone, as it causes a pumping action. This pumping action (the Hunting Response) helps in the removal of toxins and encourages healing

Cryotherapy or 'cold therapy' is a technique where the body is exposed to very cold temperatures for a few minutes at a time. It can be delivered to the whole body in the form of ice baths (as popularised by the "Iceman" Wim Hof) or to localised areas through the use of tools such as cold stones.

The benefits of cryotherapy have been well documented over recent years on both a mental and physically level.  This includes the release of adrenaline, noradrenaline and endorphins.  This can have a positive effect on those experiencing mood disorders like anxiety and depression.

Cold marble penetrates beneath the skin layer into the fascia and muscle, reduces inflammation and aids in detoxifying the body via blood flow into the centre of the body.  

Cold is a powerful decongestant pushing fluid and wastes with muscles that are tense, overworked and inflamed.  It gives an alternative constriction and dilation of blood vessels which brings fresh blood and oxygen to the area.
