Magnesium Salts may just be what you’re looking for!

So what is magnesium salt and why is everyone raving about it? Is it just another health fad?

Magnesium salt is also known as magnesium chloride. It is a chemical compound with the formula MgCl2 which is usually derived from sea water. Magnesium salts are highly soluble in water and can help to overcome many health concerns.

Magnesium can be used both orally and topically. Taking magnesium as a supplement in your diet can aid in your body recovery and heath, however applying or soaking in magnesium salts can also make a large impact on your overall health.

Here are some of the amazing outcomes having regular magnesium baths can have:

STRESS RELIEF
Magnesium salt bath acts as a good stress reliever. When we add magnesium flakes to our bath, it releases serotonin in our bodies which lifts our mood and helps to keep us stress-free. Having a regular bath, will also soothe aches and pains. It’s important however to soak in a warm to cool bath, as a hot magnesium bath will trigger the detoxification process (unless you wish to detox)

GOOD FOR YOUR HEART
Magnesium is a fantastic way to increase our blood flow and protect the elasticity of arteries and blood clots. It has been known, for many doctors to recommend bathing with magnesium salts to reduce the risk of unpredictable heart attack. You’ll find your circulation will improve and in turn your heart will be healthier.

RESTLESS LEGS
Restless legs are a terrible concern for many people. Often hard to find a solution to ease the pain and uncomfortable nights sleep, magnesium oil or salts can help in reducing if not preventing restless leg syndrome. A great way to help relieve sore and tired legs is to soak your feet each night for a minimum of 20mins in a bucket with magnesium salts. Then apply a spray of magnesium oil before heading to bed. This will also help alleviate cramps.

HEADACHE RELIEF
Magnesium Bath Salts and oils have been used to reduce the side effects and pain of headaches for some time. It helps to relax any tension in and around the head and neck, allowing the muscles to relax.

These are just a couple of the long list of benefits of magnesium. We love using it and recommending it to our clients to help after a massage to assist in reducing tension or in our hydrotherapy bath. We’d love to help you with your concerns in the spa one day soon.
