Kahuna Hot Stone Massage... Is based on the ancient art from the Hawaiians using hot stones, coconut oil and techniques from Hawaiian Ka Huna Lomi Lomi massage. The smooth basalt stones are chosen for their size and shape. For example the three larger stones are placed on the key energy centres (chakras) totally relaxing and warming the body. Smaller stones are used to massage with, and even smaller again are placed between the toes. The stones are high in magnesium and iron and retain their heat and with the use of the coconut oil glide easily over the muscles smoothing tension along the way. A full body massage starts with the legs and feet and finishes with a gentle face massage. 90 minutes is recommended for a full body massage. Click here for the full brochure
