Elements Massage Central Scottsdale Nov 9, 2017
Himalayan Salt Stone massage is a form of massage that involves the use of 100 percent pure Himalayan pink rich salt warmed to deliver soothing heat to the body. This gentle delivery of heat can relieve tense muscles and aid in encouraging repair for your body’s soft tissue.
During a massage, the massage therapist uses techniques such as long stroking motions, circular movements, kneading, and tapping to deliver a rejuvenating experience along with the following four benefits:
- Relieve Muscle Pain
Heat is a great way to ease muscle pain while increasing blood flow. This brings more nutrients and oxygenates areas of tension to reduce muscle spasms and induce relief.
- Reduce Stress and Anxiety
Massage and the soothing application of heat used in Himalayan Salt Stone massage can reduce the mind and body’s sense of stress and anxiety by encouraging feel good hormones, and reducing the production of the stress hormone, cortisol.
- Encourage Sleep
As a restorative measure, hot stone massage can help those that suffer from sleep issues like insomnia. By relaxing the central nervous system and putting yourself more in tune with your needs, massage can aid in enabling you to sleep better and feel more active upon awakening.
- Boost Immunity
This is particularly important heading into flu season. To ward off germs, your body needs to be well rested and taken care of. A regular massage routine can encourage the circulation of blood and lymph and streamline your body’s ability to flush out toxins.
As an effective way to reduce stress and address a variety of conditions and circumstances, Himalayan Salt Stone massage is an excellent complementary form of massage that integrates a deep sense of tranquility and well-being. Book one today!
