Hot Stone Massage Therapy
The relaxing and therapeutic benefits of Hot Stone Massage have long been recognised by the Chinese, Native Americans and Hawaiians. Now you can experience the benefits for yourself.
It promotes deep muscle and tissue relaxation, relieving pain while improving circulation. It can help to release toxins that have built up in the body. But perhaps most importantly, it has a remarkably relaxing effect, which causes stress to melt away.
Warmed volcanic basalt stones are used to gently massage the body, relieving aches and pains. The penetrating heat opens up tired muscles to allow a deeper pressure for massage. Alternatively individual hot stones can be positioned on specific energy centres on the body to help open up and unblock energy meridians.
Indian Head Massage
Spa Twenty Six is Glasgow’s favourite destination for Indian Head Massage because of our vastly experienced therapists and convenient south side location, and over the years we have built up an impressive following of repeat clients.
Indian Head Massage (or Champissage) is thought to confer several key health benefits, though it is also very popular simply because of the deep sense of relaxation it brings.
As the name suggests, the Ayurvedic massage techniques used in Indian Head Massage were originally developed by ancient Indian medical practitioners, before being brought to the West in the 1970s.
- relieves eye strain
- relieves stress, tension, headaches and fatigue
- increases endorphin levels
- aids detoxification
- stimulation to the scalp encourages growth of health, shiny hair
- relieves neck and shoulder pain
During the head massage, the therapist uses traditional massage techniques and pressure points on the back, shoulders, neck, head and face to relieve pain and tension, boosting circulation and encouraging oxygen flow to the brain. Indian Head Massage can be tailored to suit your individual needs, focusing more on particular problem areas, to leave you feeling calm, clear and de-stressed.
