Aromatic Hot Stone Massage

This luxurious massage experience incorporates the therapeutic benefits of smooth, heated volcanic stones with the soothing properties of aromatherapy. During our Aromatic Hot Stone Massage, we use warm oils to massage the whole body at the deep muscle level.

This signature treatment is found to release tension in the muscles, promote circulation, combat nervous fatigue, and create a positive energy flow in the body. This Aromatic Hot Stone Massage is an experience that everyone should try.

Additionally, a custom blend of essential oils is used to enhance the massage’s therapeutic benefits and create a sensory experience that uplifts the mind and body. These essential oils are carefully selected to complement the hot stones’ heat and provide a calming and rejuvenating effect on the senses.

The combination of heat, aromatherapy, and massage work together to help increase blood flow, soothe sore muscles, and improve overall well-being. You’ll leave feeling revitalized, refreshed, and ready to tackle whatever life throws your way.

What to Expect from Capital Wellness Aromatic Hot Stone Massage in Gungahlin, Canberra

Before the massage, our therapists will provide a full consultation, asking you various questions about your health and lifestyle. This is to ensure the treatment is right for you and that we have a proper understanding of what your needs are.

You’ll be asked to remove your clothes and keep your underwear on. You will lie on the table face down and our massage therapists will cover you with towels to keep you warm.

Our Aromatic Hot Stone Massage begins with the placement of heated stones along the body’s energy centres to relax and warm the muscles. The stones are made out of a volcanic type of rock called basalt, which is known for retaining heat, and are warmed up to a temperature between 54 and 52 degrees.

As the stones release their heat, our skilled massage therapists use long, flowing strokes with the stones to ease tension, relieve stress, and promote deep relaxation.

What Is An Aromatic Hot Stone Massage Good For?

An Aromatic Hot Stone Massage can provide relief for a wide range of conditions. This technique is great for addressing:
  • Muscle tension and pain
  • Stress and anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Poor circulation
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain
It’s important to note that an Aromatic Hot Stone Massage is not a substitute for medical treatment. It’s always best to consult with your doctor before trying any new form of therapy, especially if you have a medical condition.

After The Massage

After your Aromatic Hot Stone Massage, you’ll be allowed to dress in private. We will provide a hot towel for you to clean up and remove any residual oil or cream used for the massage.

For the final touch, we offer herbal tea and water so that you’re fully relaxed, hydrated, and ready to go back to your activities.

Massages, in general, promote detoxification, boost circulation, and provide an overall sense of relaxation. Depending on the type of massage you receive, you may even feel some soreness and tenderness, which is completely normal a few days after the massage. Be sure to always follow any instructions or advice provided by your massage therapist.

  • Stay hydrated.
  • Rest for at least 24 hours so your muscles have time to repair. If you have to stay on the go, be sure to take it easy and avoid any over-exertion.
  • Do some light stretching.
  • If you’re sore, you can take a cold shower or a warm bath with Epsom salts. Avoid hot water as that can increase inflammation.
  • Have a light snack and skip heavy meals.
  • Plan ahead so you can focus on relaxing for the rest of the day.
  • Listen to your body. If you experience any severe discomfort or pain after the massage, contact your massage therapist or healthcare provider.


Massage therapy is generally safe and effective, but there are moments when it’s not safe for a person to receive certain therapeutic massage techniques.
