Though it’s a relatively new modality offered by Elements of Rockville Centre, Himalayan Salt Stone Massage has become increasingly popular. Considering all of its incredible benefits, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise.
7 Benefits of Himalayan Salt Stone Massage
1. Balances pH and Mineral Levels
Himalayan salt stones contain 84 minerals and nutrients that naturally occur in our bodies. Absorbing them through the skin greatly benefits your overall well-being by replenishing and rebalancing mineral and pH levels.
2. Rejuvenates and Exfoliates Skin
Speaking of your skin, which is the body’s largest organ, you’ll notice that exposure to Himalayan salt leaves it feeling smooth and moisturized, and even combats the signs of aging! That’s because the pure salt draws moisture to the surface of your skin through osmosis while also exfoliating it, giving it a healthy glow.
3. Detoxifies the Body
While it’s a myth that massage therapy itself detoxifies the body, it’s a different story when Himalayan salt stones are added to the mix. Since Himalayan salt is naturally antimicrobial, it aids your body in eliminating harmful toxins during and after the massage session.
4. Warm Relaxation
As the temperature chills, there are few things better than receiving a massage supplemented by warm, soothing salt stones. You’ll leave Elements of Rockville Centre relaxed from head to toe, as if your anxiety has melted away.
5. Alleviates Respiratory Problems
The Lung Institute writes that Himalayan salt’s antibacterial, anti-inflammatory properties are excellent at loosening and clearing excess mucus and decreasing IgE levels, which are responsible for oversensitive immune responses.
This makes it a perfect immune system supplement for the cold, winter months when people start coming down with illnesses like bronchitis and the common cold. It’s also why Himalayan salt lamps have become commonplace in many homes and offices.
6. Improves Sleep
Everyone is familiar with the awful health effects of a diet that’s too high in sodium, but a regulated salt intake can actually improve your ability to fall and stay asleep.
Since Himalayan salt is the purest type available, it’s a much healthier alternative to emptying a salt shaker onto your meals.
7. Soothes Soreness
Himalayan salt’s high content of magnesium and other minerals makes it great at healing damaged muscles and fortifying bones. Combine that with regular massage therapy, which is already one of the best natural pain relief methods available, and it’s even more effective.
Remember that Himalayan Salt Stone Massage has nearly all of the benefits other modalities have, and that the above are just bonuses. It’s no surprise that it’s become one of Elements of Rockville Centre’s fastest growing modalities!
