Himalayan Salt stone massage
Himalayan Salt comes from the salt mines at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in the Punjab region of Pakistan. It is known to be the purest salt on the planet and as an added bonus it is hand mined so the extractions leave little to no pollution in the process.

- Vasodilatation occurs, this is the widening of the blood vessels which in turn increases the blood flow around the body flushing out waste products and cleansing internal organs.
- Pulse rate increases as the heat makes the heart beat faster – if there is any heart disease then this aspect of the thermotherapy must be observed.
- Lymphatic function increases which will promote internal cleansing and elimination of toxins.
- Alternating the hot stone helps every cell in the body to receive more oxygen and nutrients and encourages a more effective removal of toxins. The use of the therapist’s hands in conjunction with the stones also helps produce a more intensive experience.
- An excess of positive ions in the body can create inflammation. Himalaya salt stones can help balance the excess of positive ions with negatives ones to reduce pain and inflammation.
