If you have a pinched nerve, a slipped, bulging, or ruptured disc, or even a hernia then you are probably more than familiar with the level of discomfort these conditions can impart. Often as a result to extra pressure applied to the nerve endings near your spine, slipped discs can cause pain, tingling, or numbing sensations felt through the back, the hips, and into the neck area.
With the right care, surgery isn’t always a necessary course of action to recover from these types of injuries. In fact, massage therapy can deliver a range of positive benefits that can reduce pain and lessen a discs’ protrusion.

The application of pressure and movement also can facilitate a quicker recovery while promoting the healing process.

This special form of massage employs the use of gently heated Himalayan salt stones to provide warmth and comfort allowing deep-seated muscle tension and knots to melt away.
