In this article we will explore some applications of Himalayan salt massage stones.
Externally, Himalayan massage stones can be used to stimulate circulation, relax the body, lower blood pressure, sooth sore muscles, and remove toxins from the body. Some things to note:
The Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage therapy is an ancient Chinese technique that utilizes heated black rocks made of basalt. The massage therapist uses the stones as an extension of their hands to knead your muscles.
The Himalayan Stone Massage
The Himalayan salt stone massage is similar to a regular hot stone massage, but smooth Himalayan salt stones are used instead. The Himalayan salt stones tend to hold heat very well and provide additional benefits to the regular hot stone massage.
When Himalayan salt crystals are heated, they release negative ions into the surroundings, which bind to free radicals. Free radicals are unstable and highly reactive molecules or ions which cause chain reactions in the body, otherwise known as oxidation, which in turn leads to stress, cell-damage, disease, and accelerated aging. When the negative ions from heated Himalayan salt binds to free radicals, they are neutralized.
Himalayan salt crystals are anti-microbial (anti-fungal and anti-bacterial). Thus, when the crystals contact the skin (wet or dry), a detoxification effect is achieved.
Ball-shaped Himalayan salt massage stones: an effective method to knead sore muscles and release tension, while improving circulation.Himalayan salt crystals naturally contain up to 84 trace minerals, including potassium, magnesium, iron and calcium. The rich mineral content can aid our body’s natural detoxification process and promote the removal of toxins and unnecessary waste.
Himalayan salt crystals are anti-inflammatory. Contact with these stones can help reduce joint inflammation and also reduce any soreness, stiffness and pain in muscles.
So you are getting the benefits or a regular heated massage, along with several other factors:
- Deep sense of relaxation.
- Exfoliated, glowing skin.
- Soothed muscles and joints.
- Improved sleep.
- Better blood circulation.
- Reduced signs of aging.
- Loosening of tight muscles.
- Deep relief of chronic pain, especially in the neck and back.
- Stronger immune system.
Heated Himalayan salt stones are a wonderful tool to help relieve tension in the body, while improving circulation.
To warm them up, place stones on a small baking sheet, or warm in a pan over a burner. Of course, we just want to warm them enough to feel the warming sensation, and not burn the skin.
This is a wonderful product for spa owners as well as patrons, and makes a wonderful gift idea.
Pro Tip for Spa Owners: These Himalayan salt massage stones can be provided to your salt room guests during their sessions as a sample. Many spa owners leave these on or near the zero gravity chairs for patrons to try. They can then be an upsell at the end of each session — you can then provide your patrons the opportunity to purchase the stones at the reception desk upon checkout.
