The ambiance and accouterments of Islands Spa are better. Meddah's room is spartan; their garb (shorts), towels are tired and ready for retirement. The room is dimly lit and your eyes covered for the most part, so the clinical feel of the room is not really an issue. The masseuses that we had were courteous and professional; I have no complaints with them.
The stones are immersed in water and heated in an electric heating device until they are within a certain temperature range. The stones may be placed at specific points on the back, in the palms of the hand, or between the toes.
The heat warms and relaxes the muscles, which allows the therapist to apply deeper pressure, if desired.
The warmth of the hot stones improves circulation and calms the nervous system.
