Here at Qi Massage & Natural Healing Spa, we are proud to offer a diverse array of services to help you alleviate pain, reduce stress, and enjoy the relaxation you deserve. Our expert massage therapists are trained in a variety of massage styles, from Swedish massage for pure relaxation to massages specialized for sports injuries or pregnancy. One type of massage that we get frequent questions about is our Himalayan hot stone massage. There is some confusion on this form of massage, and on how it differs from the similar hot stone variety. In this article, we will tell you everything you need to know about Himalayan hot stone massage in order to decide if it’s right for you.
You may already be familiar with hot stone massage, a massage technique that uses heated basalt rocks as an extension of the massage therapist’s hands to provide additional relaxation. A Himalayan massage uses the same techniques but swaps out the dark basalt stones for stones of pink Himalayan salt. Himalayan salt contains 84 natural minerals that can benefit your health, and its crystals generate negative ions, which have been linked to reduced stress and increased mental clarity.
A Himalayan massage has a rejuvenating effect on the mind and body, providing not only a sense of deep relaxation but also improved sleep and blood circulation, as well as reduced signs of aging. If you want to try out the benefits of this type of massage for yourself, call us at Qi Massage & Natural Healing Spa to book an appointment.
