Himalayan Salt Stone Massage

combining the philosophies of eastern medicine and swedish massage, together with thermal and salt therapies, himalayan hot stone massage increases blood circulation, reduces inflammation, helps to relieve muscle tension and pain, promotes improved sleep, induces deep relaxation and improves your overall sense of well-being. Himalayan salt stones are rich in 84 naturally occurring minerals and elements revitalize the body. these minerals provide a gentle exfoliation on the skin, making it smooth and soft after your massage session.  himalayan salt stones give off negative ions. When there are too many positive ions in the body it leads to inflammation. Therefore, being massaged with salt stones helps balance the positive ions with negative ions. the minerals in the stones assist in the detoxification process of massage. massage alone is detoxifying because it is moving the blood and the lymph around in the body. it helps to circulate the toxins out of the body. the minerals in the stones help to draw out the toxins even further. gently warmed, the stones are used as an extension of your therapist’s hands to deliver an outstanding full-body massage.

Swedish Massage

swedish massage techniques are designed to improve your circulation, soothe your muscles and make you feel more relaxed. Using softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage, this adjustment of pressure makes Swedish massage ideal for relaxation. besides the calming benefits, Swedish massage is thought to be good for: easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins, improving circulation by increasing oxygen flow in the blood, helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple, and reducing emotional and physical stress.
