What is a Himalayan salt massage?
Himalayan Salt Massage utilizes heated salt stones to alleviate stress and tension. The therapist may use the salt stones in their hand while giving the massage or they might take the stones on and off the body.
How do salt stones work?
The Salt Stones contain 84 naturally occurring minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, and potassium. These minerals assist in the removal of toxins. The warmth from the stone activates the body’s Parasympathetic Nervous System- the system responsible for resting.
Therefore once applied, the brain receives a signal that turns off the body’s stress reaction and activates a relaxation response. In addition, Salt Stones repel negative ions encouraging a healthy balance between negative and positive ions, resulting in a reduction in inflammation.
