What’s Himalayan Salt Stone Massage? We all love to be pampered, touched, relaxed and/or given a spa day. Nothing is more relaxing or rejuvinating than a Massage. With so many types of massages out there it can be a bit confusing and overwhelming to pick the right one. In a few blogs we will be explaining several of them and the benefits they bring to you. Let’s first start with Himalayan Salt Stone massage.
Himalayan salt stone massage is an innovative healing technique using salt crystals from an ancient primal sea beneath the Himalayan Mountains. Himalayan salt is characteristically pink and contains 84 naturally occurring minerals and elements. It has long been used for health and healing in Eastern traditions, with the West only recently embracing this health boosting form of halite.
Few of the benefits of this miracle massage technique are:
- Alkalizes the skin
- Replenishes and nourishes your skin and body with 84 minerals
- Reduce tension and stress
- Relieves pain and inflammation
- Lightly exfoliates the skin
- Is highly relaxing
- Balances and neutralizes the ill effects of toxic frequencies we live with everyday (ex. cell phones)
- Is good for you and the earth (features low energy use, no water and no chemicals)
- Promotes healthy blood sugar
- Helps lower blood pressure
- Supports a healthy respiratory system and sinuses
- Boosts bone health and prevents muscle cramps
- Improves circulation
- Relieves anxiety and addresses insomnia
- Emits negative ions when heated, delivering a myriad of health benefits – from higher mental alertness to protection against germs in the air.
One more fantastic benefit is that the heat of the stones activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System. The Parasympathetic Nervous System is the “rest and digest” response. When the stones are applied to the body the heat sends a signal to the brain and turns off the stressful state of being and turns on the relaxation state of being.
When we are able to rest and relax, we are able to rejuvenate. When we are rejuvenated, we are able to be the best version of ourselves. We are able to perform better physically and mentally and we are able to be calmer, happier and live a more vital life.
With so many health benefits it’s certainly a massage to try and know that you will be getting a lot more than just pampering and relaxation. Book yours today at Luxe day Spa in Tampa.
