I have just been to London to do a course in Hot Stone Reflexology! I am very excited! It was a fabulous day, I learnt so much and we shared information between the other seven Reflexologists on the course. Our tutor, Sally was extremely knowledgeable and it was an honour to be taught by her. We did have a lot of laughs and the soup was delicious!
We spent the day learning, practising, eating soup, more practising and being practised on! I have absolutely no idea how I drove home! There may have been chaos going on behind me on the South Circular and perhaps I drove home over the Dartford Bridge rather than through the Tunnel! Who knows!
Hot stones have been used for centuries and are used in various ways from ceremonies to treatments. Japanese use hot stones on their abdomen to aid digestion and us ladies know that hot water bottles are great for menstrual pain.
The heat from the stones penetrates to a deeper level and may reach up to 7-8 cms into the superficial layer of muscle; bringing about physiological changes as well as influencing the body’s internal energy flow (chi); therefore bringing a balance to both body and mind (extract taken from Sally Earlam – Hot Stone Reflexology Tutor)
The temperature of the stones are regulated between 55°C – 65°C depending on the Client’s needs. Hot stones are not just used on the feet but on the lower legs up to the knees so please make sure you are wearing loose trousers!
This treatment lasts just over an hour and will normally cost £37. For March I will be charging £32! So please book up ASAP and experience this wonderfully relaxing treatment!
Because this treatment penetrates to a deeper level, taking in plenty of fluids- water – is even more essential.
