Read moreAre you a facial fanatic looking for a little something extra? Why not experience the Earth Stone Facial offered at Ste. Anne’s Spa. This decadent treatment includes all your favourite aspects of a facial along with the added bonus of a hot stone massage. Hot Stone Massages originated some 4,000 years ago throughout China but it also has roots in Japan and India. The warmed stones were used to promote healing, aid digestion and alleviate pain. The stones are made of a mineral called Basalt, which is created from black volcanic rock. The volcanic rock or lava cools as it settles in river bottoms after the eruption of a volcano. Over time the surface of the rocks are smoothed down due to the constant flow of the river. These basalt rocks can absorb and retain heat well, which makes them an ideal tool to integrate heat into any treatment. Your Earth Stone Facial will begin with a relaxing foot scrub and soak to ease tired muscles. Once you get onto the heated table, your therapist will perform a thorough skin analysis to determine the proper products for your skin. The therapist will start by cleansing and toning your face to rid the skin of any make-up, dirt or bacteria. An exfoliation will follow to slough off any dead, dry cells and allow fresh ones to surface. Next, your therapist will perform a facial massage with your chosen oil and a pair of hot stones. The first of two masks will follow as well as a soothing hot stone foot and leg massage. A second massage for the face and scalp is next, a pressure point massage, which aids the lymphatic system in removing toxins. The final mask is then applied to the face while your therapist treats you to a relaxing hot stone hand and arm massage. Finishing off the Earth Stone Facial will be an application of toner, moisturizer, eye cream and lip saver. A facial is a great way to accomplish a deep cleanse of the skin, relax the body and balance the soul…and maybe even catch up on some sleep! A warm and relaxing hot stone massage coupled with a rejuvenating facial is luxury you can afford. The Earth Stone Facial offered at Ste. Anne’s Spa is a facial that takes it to the next level.
