Hot stone massage or Indian head massage - anyone had one?
If your not into the hands/legs/feet etc then i would go for the hot stones annd indian head deal. The hot stones part will deal wiyh painful neck and shoulders and the indian head massage is blissfully relaxing. I love them! HTH
When I had a hot stone massage the stones were indeed very bloody hot, I was convinced I was going to burnt and blistered, but within a minute or so they feel just fine, a bit like getting in a really hot bath and adjusting to the temperature. It is really lovely and relaxing once you get over the initial fear of third degree burns.
I've had a couple of Indian head massages and loved them. But they have given me banging headaches for 2-3 days afterwards and I am not normally a headache prone person. Sadly I now avoid them. I'd have to choose the Swedish massage.
DH bought me a hot stone massae once as a pressie. I have to say I thought WTF. Went in very sceptical and came out a complet convert. It was lovely and the effects lasted far longer than a normal massage.
one would be bliss right now! Where on earth have you got a deal like that? (dont say if its a local only thing!) It inspired me to look for something local and I can't find anything that isnt either £££ or somewhere that looks a bit dodgy.
