Whether it’s performed with cold stones or in conjunction with hot stones, stone massage helps lower stress, improve circulation and soothe inflammation to treat a variety of maladies. I use stones as an extension of my own hands, massaging and placing them in key spots on your body.
Himalayan Salt Stone benefits
In my massages, I typically use the Himalayan salt stones. Specifically, the hand carved salt crystal stones to ground and balance the body's electromagnetic field, central nervous system and meridians. The stones can be used either warm or cool to gently soothe away any accumulation of stress, tension and pollutants. The Himalayan stones provide a deep relaxation, improve sleep and reduce inflammation in addition to mild detoxification and exfoliation. With inherent 84 minerals and trace elements, Himalayan salt is a benefit to the body inside and out.
Because the skin is the largest organ and absorbs minerals, as well as toxins, there is an enormous benefit in using the salt stones over river stones. The magnesium content helps to relax muscles and melt tension, and the other 80+ minerals and trace elements are beneficially absorbed to alkalize and gently draw out toxins. Because of the unadulterated salt, it draws moisture to the upper layers of the skin, plumping and moisturizing, leaving the skin smooth.
