Hot Stone Reflexology
Hot Stone Reflexology is a premium treatment, involving heated basalt stones, a creamy homemade foot balm and hands on reflexology. It is a gorgeously warming treatment that is particularly enjoyable in the winter months.
The basalt stones used are smooth and dense, which feels great on the skin in combination with traditional thumb-walking reflexology!
The warm stones can increase circulation and the lymphatic function, reduce muscle tension, release tension in connective tissues and of course, promote relaxation! Ginette is pleased to also offer a hot & cold stone option, using the heated basalt stones alternately with chilled marble ones. This can really benefit circulation and is particularly useful if you have some fluid retention in the ankles.
