Hot and Cold Stone Reflexology is one way in which you can protect your hands and joints and enhance the quality of the Reflexology treatment you provide for your client. It is also a therapy that can be used to treat specific problems your clients may present with. With the advent of portable heating bags this therapy is now also ideal for mobile therapists
Learning to use Hot and Cold Stones to carry out a Reflexology treatment helps the client relax faster as well as helping the Reflexologist work on a deeper level with the client
Hot Stone Reflexology combines the benefits of ‘Geo-Thermotherapy’ (the use of heat applications) combined with Reflexology techniques using basalt stones to create a deep, relaxing and treatment. Cold Stone Therapy, also known as Cryotherapy, works on the principle of heat exchange. This occurs when a cooler object is placed in direct contact with an object of warmer temperature – inflamed areas of the body; the cooler object will absorb the heat of the warmer object in an attempt to achieve balance.
It is suggested that due to the heat or coldness of the stones the effect and depth of the Reflexology treatment is 5 times as great as using just the the fingers/hands
