Himilayan Salt Stone Massage

Himalayan Hot Salt Stone Massage

            Salt is needed for the body to perform various processes.   The body uses it for some of the following needs;  (1) to help the kidneys remove acidity from the body and getting it to the urine, (2) helps remove acidity from brain cells, (3) helps the brain maintain serotonin and melatonin which has an impact on our mood (low serotonin can lead to depression which is why Lithium is used for the treatment of depression because it’s a salt), (4) dehydration occurs not just due to a lack of water but also low salt levels and these low salt levels compromise the immune system, (5) salt regulates blood pressure.  As you can see it has an important role in the proper functioning of your health.

            The Himalayan salt stones consist of 84 different minerals.  “The salt consists of 85.62% sodium chloride with the rest made up of trace minerals and elements but it is the way in which they appear in the salt that is important for our health.”

            “From a scientific point of view, the minerals appear in something called colloidal form and in the simplest terms it means that the traces are so small that they do not pose any problems for your body and cells allowing them to absorb the nutrients.  The key elements are calcium, chloride, iron, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium which each have a key role in various parts of our body and general health so getting them from such a simple source is very beneficial.”
