Have you heard the good news? Elements Massage has partnered with Saltability, providers of pure Himalayan Salt Stones. This means that our customers can now add Himalayan Salt Stones to their massages as an upgrade!
In case you haven’t heard about Himalayan Salt Stones and the many benefits of using them, we are here to share all things wonderful about these amazing stones.
History of Himalayan Salt Stones
The use of Himalayan Salt for a variety of purposes goes back many, many years but the changes over recent years have us very excited.
Himalayan Salt, which is very pure and unpolluted, is handpicked at the base of the Himalayan mountains and used for a variety of items such as salt scrubs, bath salts, specialty lamps and, most importantly, salt stones. Himalayan Salt crystals are carved into smooth oval stones to be used as part of any massage.
Why Are Himalayan Salt Stones Better?
If you have had a hot stone massage in the past, you may be wondering why these salt stones could be so much better.
Salt Stones are antimicrobial so you never have to worry about bacteria growing on them, which can be an issue with traditional stones. Not only that, but Himalayan Salt Stones are heated with dry heat instead of water which is a much more hygienic approach to massage.
Finally, and here is the big “ah-ha”, is that Himalayan Salt Stones actually have healing powers. (You see traditional stones just heat up and provide a warm sensation on the body.) When a trained therapist places heated Himalayan Salt Stones on your body, the number of benefits to your whole body is astounding!
Benefits Of Himalayan Salt Stones
A Himalayan Salt Stone massage integrates the philosophies of Eastern medicine, Swedish massage, thermal therapy and salt therapies to create a wonderful array of potential whole body benefits:
- Increase in blood circulation
- Reduction in inflammation
- Improvement in sleep
- Deep relaxation
- Improvement in overall sense of well-being
- Restoration of depleted minerals to the skin, which increase moisture and create softer skin
- Reduction in the signs of aging
