Himalayan salt stones provide a therapeutic massage inside and out!
A Himalayan salt stone massage is like a traditional hot stone massage, but is performed with “stones” fashioned from Himalayan crystal salt. The salt stones are warmed and lubricated with essential oils to massage muscle tension away. Due to the natural cleansing properties of Himalayan salt (anti-microbial and anti-bacterial), the stones also help purify the skin with a gentle exfoliation.
Hot towels are also incorporated to further relax muscles and calm the nervous system. Pressure is customized to suit your needs.
Massage “stones” are created from salt crystals collected from the Himalayan mountains in India and Pakistan.
Himalayan crystal salt is naturally anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. It contains the same minerals and trace elements of which the human body is composed, and it is hypothesized that these inherent minerals and trace elements exist in colloidal form — meaning they are small enough for human cells to readily absorb them. Many also believe that the salt’s unique structure also stores vibrational energy and gives off positive ions.
Recommended session time varies based on your body and goals. 60 minutes is just enough time for most people to receive a full-body massage without any special attention to problem areas. If you would like your massage therapist to spend extra time on a specific area or if you are more muscular (athletes, etc), 90 minutes is recommended. 120 minutes is recommended for those that have more muscle mass AND have specific issues to address.
