It seems like everywhere you look these days you will find a different promotion for the benefit of Himalayan salt stones – salt stone lamps for improved sleep and energy, salt stone grill slabs for natural infusion of spices, etc. Hot stones have long been used to enhance the effectiveness of therapeutic massage and now Elements give you the option to add Himalayan salt stone to any massage.
The use of hot stones and relaxation dates back to 27 B.C., and for millennia, has been recognized as the most relaxing of all massage. The heat of the stones relaxes muscles groups in the body to allow therapist to more directly impact tension and trigger points. Additionally, the Chinese believe that Hot Stone massage could be used to directly impact proper functioning of internal organs.
The full-body, hot-stone massage has evolved to include deep tissue-specific work, hot-stone facials, hot-stone pedicures and manicures, and hot-stone meridian therapy. Because of their incredible energy, stones are used in reiki, polarity therapy and cranial sacral work.
