Salt….a valuable commodity throughout the ages, but capable of so much more than a simple seasoning. We’re talking about Himalayan Salt. Known in the Himalayas as “white gold,” Himalayan Crystal Salt contains the same 84 natural minerals and elements found in the human body. While this pure salt form is certainly tasty, the incredible health benefits extend beyond the kitchen.
Himalayan Salt is considered to be the most pure form of whole salt on the planet. Formed from the primordial sea during a time of intense tectonic pressure, the salt has been maturing over the past 250 million years. Unlike Sea Salt, Himalayan Salt Crystals have never been exposed to toxins or impurities of any kind. They are mined from beneath the Himalayan Mountains and then hand-carved into beautiful massage stones. The unique cellular structure allows them to store vibrational energy that lends itself well to massage and body wraps.
Himalayan Salt Stone Massage is an innovative healing technique using warm salt crystal stones to ground and balance the body’s electromagnetic field, central nervous system and meridians. Through osmosis, the nutrients from the salts penetrate the skin to alkalize and detoxify the body. Simply rubbing the stones in your hands, you can feel the powerful, soothing effects of this ancient mineral. The salt stones draw toxins out of the skin, leaving the superficial top layer smoothed and moisturized. Additional benefits include reduced inflammation, improved sleep, improved muscle and joint dexterity, reduced anxiety and very deep relaxation. Himalayan Salt Crystals soothe away the accumulation of stress, tension and pollutants and bring the mind, body and spirit back into balance.
We are happy to offer treatments on our new menu which feature this natural wonder: the Warm Himalayan Salt Stone Massage, the Organic Himalayan Salt Scrub, the Himalayan Salt Wrap and the Hand and Foot Himalayan Salt Stone Massage Mani/Pedi.

We even sell it in seasoning form at our Spa Gift Shops so you can see the benefits that extend beyond good health to good taste in your kitchen!
