Himalayan salt has long been used for its profound wellness benefits for the body and soul. Mined from the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan, this powerful salt is said to be the purest salt on Earth, thanks to the mountainous region which has sealed it from pollutants.
Himalayan salt is uniquely pink in color and is packed with 84 naturally occurring minerals and elements. Many of these minerals provide the body with health and healing benefits. During a Himalayan salt massage, pink salt stones are heated to allow the minerals to absorb into the body, maximizing the salt’s many benefits.
Benefits of Himalayan salt massages include:
- Exfoliates and nourishes the skin gently, leaving you soft and smooth.
- Reduces inflammation and relieves pain such as muscle weakness, headaches, joint pain and fatigue.
- Generates negative ions, which are shown to help create a sense of peace and deep relaxation.
- Restores equilibrium by balancing the body’s central nervous system, leaving your body and mind energized and centered.
- Promotes deep sleep and helps to reduce insomnia.
The benefits of massage therapy combined with the added benefits of the Himalayan salt stones create a deep sense of relaxation and well-being noticeable for weeks following the treatment. Himalayan Salt Massages are now available at Glen Ivy Hot Springs. For more information and to book your own treatment, please call 888-453-6489.
