Gift Certificate for one mobile 3 hour session, for one person, consisting of a 90 minute Hot Stone Massage, immediately followed by a 90 minute Thai Foot Masssage, at your location within Kelowna, British Columbia.
During Hot Stone Massage, the penetrating heat from smooth, oiled and heated basalt stones, is used to improve circulation, reduce stress, and relieve tense muscles and sore joints. Combined with Swedish massage techniques, this massage creates an unforgettable, luxurious, and thoroughly relaxing experience.
Thai Foot Massage is a combination of the ancient healing arts of Reflexology, Shiatsu, Tuina, and Ayurvedic Yoga. Working with the feet, lower legs and knees, this 2000 year old, highly reputed treatment frees up blocked energy within the body’s many Sen Lines (Thai- based meridians) to produce a deep and unique feeling of balance, relaxation and well-being.
Thai Foot Massage is a gentle, yet firm treatment that incorporates the use of a wooden device called a Thai Stick to work areas of the feet. Working these areas increases blood and energy flow to the internal organs, glands and all parts of the body, allowing the body to return to a state of homeostasis.
