Get Salty! Salt Stone Massages

Getting a hot stone massage makes many instantly think relaxing thoughts, with the occasional “oooh” or “aaah” while they’re thinking. Why not take the massage to the next level with salt stones?

Salt crystals from an ancient primal sea beneath the Himalayan Mountains are hand-carved into massage stones that gently soothe away an accumulation of stress, tension and pollutants.Salt therapy in general is still trending, with more and more businesses adding in various treatments, salt beds or tables, add on services and even retailing salt lamps for home use.

The salt stones are easy to use, portable and pay for themselves in no time at all!

For inquiring minds who have questions, here are a few quick tips:

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do you heat the stones?
A: Any dry heat source, heating pad, toaster oven, skillet, light bulb, and of course our aesthetically pleasing, air purifying salt stone warmer lamp, or salt bowl lamp. We do not recommend heating in the microwave.

Q: How do you clean the stones?
A: Ultimately salt is antimicrobial, and should not require any disinfecting. Since we cannot guarantee this, we recommend cleaning the stones this way: After each use you can take a spray bottle and make a solution of thyme and tea tree oil and spray the stones and dry them immediately. At the end of the day, you can take a bottle of warm or hot water and put a couple of tablespoons of white vinegar in it with 10 drops of tea tree oil. You then dip the stone and swish it around. You can leave it in a few seconds, but any length of time will cause the stone to disintegrate. Dry the stone immediately, put it back on it's heat source to dry better and further sanitize.

Q: How long do they last?
A: The stones last indefinitely, as long as they are kept dry. When exposed to moisture they will pit and sometimes dissolve depending on how much moisture. When they get rough you can sand them with sand paper to smooth them. When used with water for salt scrub and lymphatic drainage, they will need to be replaced from time to time.

Q: Can you use them with lotion or oil?
A: We do not recommend using with oil. It is difficult to clean and clogs the salt. We recommend using Jojoba or Coconut oil. These two oils do not get rancid or degrade the salt. Depending on the skin you can use the stones dry as well.

Q: Do you have to heat the stones?
A: The stones have a therapeutic effect warm or cold. When warmed, the negative ion potential of the stone is ignited.
