If you’re looking for the perfect enhancement to your massage, I highly recommend trying the Himalayan Hot Salt Massage. Most find Hot Salt Stone massage to be more rejuvenating and relaxing than a traditional hot stone massage. Here’s why.
First, Himalayan Salt is mined from the earth and encased in minerals that form it into rocks. The massage stones are ground down, shaped and polished to make them smooth enough to use on the skin during massage. Because these Salt Stones are mined from the earth, they contain 84 naturally occurring minerals in addition to the salt itself. So, in addition to providing a gentle exfoliation on the skin which makes your skin feel smooth and soft after your massage session, the heat also penetrates causing a deep relaxation that stimulates your parasympathetic nervous system (aka, your “rest and digest” system). When stimulated, your body goes into a state of rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.
Second, just like the popular salt lamps, Himalayan Salt Stones give off negative ions. When there are too many positive ions in the body it leads to inflammation. Therefore, being massaged with the stones helps balance the body’s cells naturally and reduces inflammation.
Third, although massage alone helps to detoxify the body, adding the benefit of minerals from the salt really kicks the detox up a notch! The massage helps to circulate the toxins out of the body through the lymphatic system while the minerals in the stones help to draw out the toxins even further.
Traditional hot stone massage doesn’t offer the benefits of negative ionization, exfoliation and inflammation reduction making which makes the Hot Salt Massage a superior option.
