About the treatment
Shakinah hot stone/pohaku massage is based on Hawaiian traditions, incorporating lomi lomi massage techniques with warmed basalt stones, rich coconut oil and essential oils to relax the body and mind, and awaken the senses.
Heated stones of various sizes are placed on key energy centres (chakras) to harmonise the spirit and prepare your muscles for massage. The stones are then used to massage the body in a sequence of firm, flowing, rhythmic strokes.
This amazing full-body sensory experience begins at the legs and feet then sweeps up your body, focusing on stagnant, congested areas. Reconnecting moves ground scattered emotions, while draining movements on the arms and neck help detox and improve lymph flow. The treatment finishes with rebalancing and calming pressure point techniques on the head.
A truly indulgent experience, the Shakinah Hot Stone/Pohaku Massage is likened to the sensation of gentle waves moving over the body, bringing deep calm to your entire being.
