Tibetan Honey Massage (seasonal treat)
- Enjoy a full hour of healing and deep relaxation
- Prepare for the cold season
- Boost your immunity
- Nourish and moisturize your skin
Tibetan Honey Massage is an ancient treatment that has been practiced in Asia and Eastern Europe for hundreds of years.
Even though we associate honey with being sweet, honey is not just a healthy sugar alternative. It is enriched with minerals including calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium. It also consists of vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants and probiotics.
How it works: Honey is applied to the skin and massaged until it becomes sticky. Using specialized techniques the practitioner works the honey up until its consistency changes and white pellets appear on the skin surface. These pellets are the toxins and salts drawn from the body and absorbed into the honey.
One tablespoon of honey contains 20.3 mg of calcium, 1.4 mg of iron, 6.8 mg of magnesium and 176 mg of potassium. It also contains Vitamins C and B6, riboflavin and folate. So, when honey is applied externally to the skin, the minerals and vitamins in the honey are actually absorbed through the skin. The skin is left hydrated because the humectant properties of the honey actually promote moisture retention leaving your skin feeling softer and smoother.
