Himalayan Salt Stone Massage
People today visit salt caves to find relief from a wide range of health issues, to enhance breathing, to improve skin health and to reduce stress.
Today, specially shaped Himalayan salt “stones” are heated to provide a unique therapeutic massage that may offer salt’s healing benefits during a massage.
Here are five benefits of a Himalayan Salt Stone Massage:
When there are too many positive ions in the body it leads to inflammation. Being massaged with Himalayan salt stones may help balance the positive ions with negative ions. This may help reduce inflammation.
Himalayan salt contains more than 80 trace minerals that may be absorbed by your body during a hot Himalayan Stone massage, helping to replenish minerals lost during hard workouts or ongoing stress.
Himalayan Salt is naturally antimicrobial and may help to detoxify and nourish your skin and body.
Your skin may feel more refreshed and lightly exfoliated by the glide from salt stones that are smooth and rounded.
The salt stones are heated and when combined with therapeutic massage, a natural relaxation may occur. When our muscles are able to relax, the therapist is able to help problem areas release more readily.
