Whatcha know about Himalayan Salt Stone Massage?
Hi everyone! I wanted to share a little more detail on one of our special offerings at Heal. in Altamonte Springs!
4 words: Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. Yes, it is as heavenly as it sounds!
The benefits are amazing. You can literally see and feel the effects of the salt after one session. Your skin, body and mind will thank you! So how does it work?
The purpose of Himalayan Salt Stone Massage is to assist in bringing balance to the autonomic nervous system by strengthening the parasympathetic nervous system!
Let’s break down those big words: your nervous system has two “settings”. 1) Fight or Flight and 2) Rest and Digest. In our day to day lives we spend a majority of the time in the “fight or flight” response through heightened stress, traffic, deadlines, obligations, and more. Your body is then not able to heal properly while in this state, which is why Himalayan Salt Stone Massages are here to save the day.
You see, the warmth of the Salt Stones activates the Parasympathetic Nervous System (rest and digest) where the environment for healing in your body is at it’s most optimal state. The human body is made primarily of water and salt and because Himalayan Crystal salt contains all 84 trace minerals and trace elements of which the body is made, it’s no surprise that our bodies respond so well to the powerful effects of a Himalayan Salt Stone Massage.
What makes Himalayan Salt Stone Massage so therapeutic are the negative ions that are produced to create a sense of peace and relaxation. What do negative ions do? Well, when there are too many positive ions in the body it leads to inflammation.
Therefore, being massaged with the stones helps balance the positive ions with negative ions. This can help reduce inflammation. On top of the decrease of inflammation, the heat of the salt melts the tense and tight fascia to allow your massage therapist to go deeper into the muscles throughout your massage. Talk about deep, deep relaxation!
The salt stones used during your Himalayan Salt Stone Massage are smooth and will easily glide across your back. Some of the stones are shaped like hearts which definitely adds a loving essence to your massage, at least I think so!
