What To Expect During a Himalayan Salt Stone Massage

Today’s fast-paced life gets too tiring. It sucks the energy and vitality out of us and leaves us dull, tired, and lifeless. We need to relax and recoup the loss of energy to feel rejuvenated.

The current rage in the massage world is the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. The very thought of a relaxing massage is soothing! Read on to find out what makes this treatment so phenomenal.

The massage incorporates stones that are purely made up of the Himalayan salt, which is situated at the foothills of the great Himalayas. Himalayan salt is known to be the purest salt on this planet, and comes with a ton of health benefits.

For cooking, the rock salt adds unparalleled flavour and nutrients. As lamps, they cleanse and deodorise the air, promoting all sorts of positive health effects. You can even use the salt as an anti perspirant! But have you ever considered what a Himalayan salt stone massage is like?

If you’ve ever received hot stone therapy, you’ll find that a Himalayan salt stone massage is rather similar. The normal hot stone massage uses warm, smooth rocks made of basalt to work the client’s body. The Himalayan salt rocks feel almost the same- the heat from the stones, the smooth, gliding motion- except that the salt stones are ever so slightly more abrasive. Meaning they also give the body a light exfoliation too!

Himalayan Salt Stones contain 84 naturally occurring minerals. The minerals provide a gentle exfoliation on the skin, making the skin feel smooth and soft after your massage. During the treatment, the therapist will use warmed Himalayan salt stones to apply pressure, using Swedish massage techniques. The stones are essentially an extension of the therapists hands. The minerals will be slowly absorbed through the skin throughout the massage. The effect is a profound sense of well-being.

Himalayan Salt Stones also give off negative ions. What does this mean? Well, when there are too many positive ions in the body it leads to inflammation, joint pain and muscular pain. Therefore, being massaged with the salt stones helps balance the positive ions with negative ions. This can help reduce the pain significantly, making this treatment absolutely amazing for sufferers of fibromyalgia.

After your treatment is said and done, you’ll likely experience the following:

  • Improved sleep

  • Deep sense of relaxation

  • Easier breathing

  • Increased blood circulation

  • Increased energy

  • Glowing, healthy and soft skin
