Hot Stone Massage in Brighton

WHAT IS HOT STONE MASSAGE?Hot stone massage is an example of the many massages offered at Brighton Wellbeing clinic

Hot stone massage is a style of massage therapy in which water-treated stones are placed at specific sites on the client’s body to promote relaxation and to help open up the meridians (energy pathways). Muscles are pre-heated with the hot stones to allow the therapist to more easily perform deep tissue manipulations. Cool stones are sometimes used alternately with hot stones. Cool stones can calm blood vessels and sooth the skin. Massage oils are usually incorporated into the massage treatment.


Before your arrival at Brighton Wellbeing, the hot stone massage therapist sanitises the stones and heats them in a bath of hot water (usually about 120-150 degrees). The stones are usually basalt, a dark fine-grained volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well.

First, you are usually asked to lie face down, allowing the therapist to work on your back. The hot stone therapist warms up the body with strokes, then massages you while holding a heated stone on your body with a towel in between. As the stone cools, the therapist replaces it with a hot one. Stones can be placed around your body depending on your problem areas. They can be placed along your spine, legs or wrapped around your palms or feet.

You should let the therapist know if the stones feel too warm. You can also ask the therapist not to use hot stones if they make you feel uncomfortable. After all, the aim of a hot stone massage is to promote relaxation.

  • Best massage in BrightonAnnika H

    The massage I received at Brighton Wellbeing was easily the best massage I've ever had! Barbara used so many different massage techniques, I've never experienced anything like it before. Not only does Barbara understand you holistically, but she is also ridiculously strong! I've always wanted to experience a proper professional sports massage, and this is definitely what I got. Barbara also worked on my neck which had been stiff for a long time, and after the neck massage I haven't had issues.

    If you're looking for a professional massage therapist in Brighton, you should definitely book with Barbara at the Brighton Wellbeing clinic.

  • Great for injury and stress reliefCate

    Barbara is highly skilled at what she does. She's also warm, kind and personable. She tailors treatment to your specific needs, and has hugely helped to reduce my back pain. I would recommend her to anyone recovering from soft tissue injury, and equally to anyone looking for a stress-relieving massage treatment. She's great!

  • Great benefit from massagesanna zoly

    Barbara is a highly qualified professional, and offers massages tailored to the client's "body and mind". I was very happy to enter a relaxing environment, have an assessment, and a chat over my needs and expectations. I was very pleased with the results, since my body had a great benefit from the massages, for example with a considerable decrease in muscular tension and pain. Definitely going to get more massages.

  • Great resultsMargarita

    I met Barbara when I have had some problems with my neck and lower back. After I have been having massage treatments I did feel happy and satisfied with the results. Barbara is very professional and pleasant person, she will give you good advice and right recommendations. I am truly grateful to Barbara.

    Brighton Wellbeing is centrally located, just off London Road, which makes it very convenient to reach. Step inside and you will find a cozy reception and softly lit, tranquil treatment room, with warm, smiley Barbara waiting to meet you. After interviewing you about your particular problem, she personalises a massage to focus on exactly what you need. I have tried a number of Barbara's extensive range of massage treatments, according to what I require at that moment, and each has been excellent. I would highly recommend Brighton Wellbeing, if you have a chronic problem, or just fancy treating yourself. You will also find prices are less than other places in Brighton.
