Hot Salt Stone Massage

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.
