“Ska:ná is always looking for services and products that benefit our amazing guests, and Saltability has come up with an innovative way to do that,” said Shane Bird, Director of Spa Operations at Turning Stone Resort. “With the use of an eco-friendly warmer and all of the benefits of Himalayan salt, this is more than just a ‘latest trend’ – this is the new way of performing stone massage for the spa industry. Ska:ná is thrilled to be able to offer the use of Himalayan salt stones in our Signature Stone Massage.”
Ska:ná guests will benefit from the 84 naturally occurring minerals and elements found in Saltability’s pure salt stones, mined from the Himalayan Mountains. Inducing deep relaxation, Himalayan Salt Stone Massage balances the central nervous system and nourishes depleted cells in the body, stimulating circulation, detoxifying, improving sleep, reducing inflammation, and calming the nervous system.
Ska:ná’s new treatment features a warmed Himalayan salt stone massaged over the body using a specific sequence of massage to balance the body’s meridians, or energy channels. Drawing upon traditional Chinese medicine therapy, the Himalayan Salt Stone Massage grounds and balances the body's electromagnetic field, and the pressure, motion, and thermal effects used during the treatment work to replenish nutrients in the connective tissue while creating deep relaxation.
“I have long been an admirer of Ska:ná Spa and their dedication to preserving and sustaining the environment,” said Ann Brown, Saltability founder. “We are thrilled they have chosen to add Saltability to their spa, adding our green and eco-friendly warmers to the environmentally positive environment found at Turning Stone Resort.”
