Himalayan Salt Stone Massage
What is Himalayan Salt Stone Massage?
Himalayan Salt Stone Massage is a massage technique using salt crystals harvested from a sea underneath Himalayan Mountains. The stones contain 84 different minerals and are crystal-like in their appearance. The stones are heated on a bamboo warming tray to a temperature of 120-`135 degrees Fahrenheit. This massage is perfect for anyone who enjoys heat, has deep muscle tension, or just wants to relax and feel nurtured.
What to Expect in a Session
The session can be focused on areas of the body with tension or can be a full-body treatment. During the session, the therapist will use both the Himalayan Salt Stones and their hands to perform the massage. The stones may be placed on the body for additional warmth throughout the massage.
The Benefits of Himalayan Salt Stone Massage
Warmth has a sedating effect on the nervous system which in turn decreases pain and discomfort. Himalayan Salt Stones, which are completely natural and harvested from the earth, are a natural air purifier, relax the body, soothe sore muscles, calm the nervous system, improve sleep, and increase a sense of well-being. They are a wonderful addition to any massage!
Are there any Contraindications to Himalayan Salt Stone Massage?
