Similar to traditional Basalt Stones, Himalayan Salt Stones can be used over the entire body. Not only does it deliver superb thermotherapy, Himalayan salt is known to contain 84 trace minerals.
These minerals are very helpful for the human body. When the body is massaged with the Himalayan Salt Stones, these minerals are absorbed in the body, helping to replenish the loss of these minerals from the body.
It’s important to note that because there is no way to determine exactly how much of the mineral content is absorbed by each client, outside of medical testing, that you must be ethical in how you market this benefit of the Himalayan Salt Stones.

In Bamboo massage, hollow bamboo canes of different lengths and diameters are used as a massage tool, either warmed or at room temperature.
The bamboo cane replaces the therapist’s hands, and it is used to give a deep, firm massage.
The longer sticks are used for gliding strokes on the larger muscles such as the back and thighs, whilst the smaller ones are used for more detailed work such as on the feet.
The muscles are kneaded, which assist in the release of tension and easing of knots. This technique works in a very similar way to hot stone massage.
