The salt used in our Himalayan Salt Stone Massage therapy comes from in the Punjab region of Pakistan, near the base of the Himalayan Mountains. The Salt Range, as it’s called, was a primal sea long before the geologic forces created some of world’s highest peaks. 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.
During the massage therapy, therapists use warmed Himalayan salt stones to apply pressure, using Swedish massage techniques. During the course of the treatment, the minerals are absorbed through the skin. The effect is a profound sense of well-being.
A Himalayan Salt Stone Massage can also zero out the body’s electromagnetic field. Electronic devices such as phones and computers can disrupt natural energy flow within the body. The stone’s neutral structure and natural resonant frequency help to realign energy pathways and restore balance to the central nervous system.
