A hot stone massage is one of the most relaxing treatments you can get for yourself.

.

With a heated couch, relaxing music and candles lit, your therapist will apply the heated stones covered in oil to gently but firmly glide over the muscles. It's pure bliss.

While using the stones it allows the therapist to go deeper into the muscles, relieving aches and pain while encouraging better blood circulation and lymphatic drainage allowing the toxins to leave the body faster so you can feel better. The stones help to repair damaged soft tissue and improve your energy levels, skin tone and texture loss.

The heated stones help to instantly release tension in your back and shoulders so those muscles can be worked on more effectivily. This really helps to achieve deep relaxation and peace of mind.

The stones are a smooth flat basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retain heat. They come in different sizes for different areas of the body. A hot stone massage will also increase blood flow in an affected area, reduce muscle spasms and increase flexibility. Like all massages, it really helps to reduce stress and anxiety, and any time you remove toxins from the body it helps to induce relaxation. Also, you will be more alert, active and positive after a proper deep night's sleep.

Hot stone massage is great for anyone with rheumatoid arthritis and clients have mentioned it improves their grip strength, that they have less pain and a greater range of motion.

A good massage has so many great benefits with one of its most amazing ones is that it can give your immune system a boost.

Regular massage also helps to regulate water retention and blood pressure.

I highly recommend a hot stone massage, especially if you haven't tried it yet. Please call Jill to book in, or for more information, on 064 6632966.

Handball in the Killarney region can look back at 2022 as a year of continued progress, the promotion of handball in East Kerry and the introduction of the sport to a new generation.

It has been a phenomenal and successful year for the Spa Killarney Club. At the Annual General Meeting of the club this week, one of the highlights of the year singled out for mention was the hosting and promotion of a One Wall National Tournament which attracted players from all over Ireland to the Killarney venue in March.

There was joy for the home club at the tournament when Currow native and Spa Killarney Club member Aoife Walsh had an impressive victory in the highly competitive Ladies B championship.

There was also an international dimension for the club in 2022 when four players took part in the European One Wall Tournament in London. At this event Eoin O’Donoghue won gold in the Open Doubles B championship where he partnered with John Joe Quirke from Glenbeigh and Brendan O’Donoghue won a silver medal in the Over 40 Doubles final.

“As a new club we were delighted with the success we achieved in 2022. In January Aoife Walsh and Sinead Moriarty took home silverware in the highly competitive She’s Ace competition in Tyrone. This really was our springboard for success during the year and resulted in some of our players competing in the One Wall national finals in Roscommon in July. We are looking forward to an exciting 2023 and hopefully welcoming new members to the club,” said Eoin O’Donoghue, PRO of Spa Killarney Handball Club.

The club rounded off a memorable year in October when they hosted the Munster One Wall championships and the Kerry Handball Board AGM in November where club members Kieran O’Brien was elected president of Kerry Handball and Brendan O’Donoghue was appointed delegate to the Kerry GAA Board.

Officers Elected for 2023/2024: Brendan O’Donoghue (Chairman), Sinead Moriarty (Vice Chairperson), David Gillespie (Secretary), Eoin O’Donoghue (PRO) and James O’Brien (Treasurer).

Open Night

Spa Killarney Handball Club will host an Open Night at the Spa GAA Club on Monday night (February 6). This will be an opportunity for attendees to savour the thrill of handball, have a taster game and meet the club players. It commences at 7pm and all over 18s are welcome.

Preliminary details of the Rás Mumhan have been announced by Cycling Munster.

The four-day international cycle race will, once again, be based at the Riverisland Hotel in Castleisland and will run from Good Friday until Easter Monday.

The final route has not yet been revealed but it is expected to follow a similar path to the 2022 edition.

Last year, due to organisational difficulties, the Rás Mumhan committee asked local clubs to take charge of each day of the race.

Killarney Cycling Club hosted the Easter Saturday leg of the race, including managing the stage start in the town centre, the Category One mountain climb at Bealach Oisin Pass and the stage finish in Sneem.

“We are looking forward to seeing everyone at Easter and we wish all the riders the best of luck in their preparations for the event. Further details to follow as they are confirmed,” said Race Secretary Sinéad Moriarty.
