Himalayan Salt Stone Massage integrates the philosophies of Eastern medicine, Swedish massage, thermal therapy and salt therapies to create a massage experience unlike any other. This innovative technique uses salt crystals from an ancient primal sea that once lay where the Himalayan Mountains are today. 100% pure Himalayan salt stones may appear transparent, whitish, or have a pink or orange tint. They are hand carved to act as an extension of your therapist’s hands and are warmed to deliver a truly unique massage experience.
More than 300 million years ago, an ancient ocean existed in the region on the current Himalayan Mountains. As the landscape changed the ocean dried up, natural pressure and forces over millions of years created the Himalayan Mountains and left a massive, mineral-rich salt deposit. This salt is unique with a perfect crystalline structure created by the enormous pressure. The mountain range sealed off the salt crystals from civilization’s chemicals and pollutants and kept them pure. Today, Himalayan salt is still mined mostly at the Khewra Salt Mine in Pakistan. These ancient treasures are hand-mined to maintain their purity.
Himalayan salt contains 84 trace minerals that activate natural healing mechanisms and restore balance to the body's electromagnetic field, central nervous system and energy pathways. The warm salt stones gently sooth away accumulated stress, tension and pollutants in the body. Other benefits these natural healing stones offer include:
- Increased blood circulation
- Improved sleep
- A sense of deep relaxation
- An improved overall sense of well-being
- Purifying and detoxifying the body
- Exfoliating the skin
Himalayan salt stones produce negative ions, which may clean the air and create a sense of peace. Himalayan salt also has antimicrobial properties. More than 360 ancient Ayurvedic medicines still in use today use Himalayan salt as an ingredient in the treatment of conditions like high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes and other medical problems. The natural crystals are also used as bath salts to impart relaxation and revitalization.
