Those who love hot stone massage, and warm, even pressure are going to love the latest integrated massage technique at RedCedar Massage Suite.


Guests can now book a Thermal Stix massage that incorporates the use of heated, polished wooden batons to roll out muscles while the heat stretches and relaxes them.  The design of the Thermal Stix are perfect for lengthening, releasing and softening tight tissue and are further assisted by leverage and weight that the tools provide.

Not only new to RedCedar Boutique Massage Suite, Thermal Stix Massage is new to North America. RedCedar is currently Canada’s only venue to offer this unique type of massage experience, which is ideal for very tight and/or dense muscles.  The Thermal Stix provide an ability to achieve a deep, effective massage. And it is particularly effective for clients with a very stiff spine as the heat and rolling motion increase flexibility.  Popular with athletes, especially runners and skiers, the heated batons are very effective in rolling out hamstrings and hip flexors.

“We are very pleased to launch Thermal Stix at RedCedar as we are certain our guests are going to enjoy this treatment option,” shares Shiatsu Therapist Kendall Dixon.  “While it’s a relatively new technique, it is one I have been working with for a number of years during my twenty-five years as a massage therapist. It is an ideal form of therapuetic and relaxation massage for many people.”

Thermal Stix massage will appeal to fans of hot stone massage, however, unlike hot stones, there is no risk of a burn.  The shape and feel of the batons is also much more comfortable and better suited to massage the natural to the contours of the body.  Due to their uniform shape and size, massage therapists are better able to apply customised pressure to every client – whether light, moderate or deep.

To book a Thermal Stix treatment reach out to the Concierge at Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver at 604 844 6718.
