My favorite place to go for a massage in Castle Rock, CO is Elements. This place has such nice people and a beautiful, inviting and relaxing atmosphere. My husband and I have been going there ever since they opened a few years ago and have no intention of going anywhere else.
This morning I had the wonderful luxury of having a hot stone massage by Kathryn. I had my first hot stone massage a few months ago and have been hooked ever since. I received an email from Elements a while back for a free hot stone upgrade so I did not hesitate to book 3 of them . Today I had my last one for a while. All my hot stone massages were done by Kathryn, who does a stellar job. Kathryn is very mellow and friendly. It is very easy to relax and be yourself around her.
For those of you that have not yet had a hot stone massage, I highly recommend it. It was not what I expected from the pictures I have seen. The massage therapist not only lays the hot stones on you while he/she massages other parts of your body, he/she takes fresh hot stones and digs them into your muscles with the pressure of your preference. In my opinion hot stone massage kicks a** and is my favorite.
Here is a brief description for those of you that have not had one so you know what to expect. Too begin with the stones were placed in the water inside stone pot. A stone pot looks very similar to a crockpot. It was plugged in to heat the water, which in turn heated the stones. To begin with Kathryn placed large round hot stones down the spine of my back to let the heat soak in while she worked on my back leg muscles with other hot stones. Then she continued to use fresh hot stones work on the rest of my muscles for the remainder of the massage.
Having a hot stone massage is an amazing experience and not to miss. I highly recommend Kathryn at Elements.
