"Wow – just wow! Where do I begin. I have had numerous massages over the last 20 years, however this massage was next level. From the moment I walked into the treatment room I felt supported and her room was a sanctuary. Throughout the treatment I felt supported and nurtured. This to me was more than a massage it felt like a ritual and the most amazing massage experience from the moment I walked in to when I left. I had the most amazing sleep that night too and my body has felt so good in the days after. I love that at the end – Isabelle recommended a massage for me that she thought would be beneficial. I have managed to make a booking for next month and I am counting down the days." - Janine

The naturally occurring mineral and infrared light they contain are imparted during the massage. As with all our massages, a unique aromatherapy oil blend will be created for you during your appointment. All your senses will be charmed with the combination of the hot stones and the tantalizing scents of our aromatherapy oils. 

This is a full body massage using stones of various sizes. Hot stones are also placed on the hands, feet and body for therapeutic heat release during the treatment. Despite being deeply relaxed during the massage, the unique properties of hot stone treatment mean that you will come away feeling energized and refreshed. The hot stone massage is particularly beneficial for arthritis, rheumatism, chronic pain, muscle tension, insomnia and stress relief. The 90 minutes treatment is more intensive and finishes with a cooling facial stone ritual.

The stones are carefully cleaned and sanitised between clients.

We are committed to the highest standards of hygiene and safety for our clients. All linen is changed after every individual treatment. Our therapists wash and sanitise our hands between treatments. Following Korean cultural tradition, our therapists typically wear a face mask during massage treatments (following the consultation) to maximise your comfort given the close physical proximity during massage. If you prefer we don’t wear a mask, please let us know. If you have a hearing loss, please let us know also.

 We recommend clients pay particular attention to hydration following treatments to support the body as it eliminates toxins and continues the metabolic work stimulated by the massage.

"I have been visiting Isabelle since she first started at the apothecary and her massages genuinely help me feel healthier. I’m more relaxed, centred, and her lovely smile makes my day." - Jamie
