Hot Salt Packs
The Japanese frequently use salt in their traditional healing techniques to encourage vitality and circulation to problem areas. Hot salt energises and strengthens the vital organs, tonifying the uterus, bladder and intestines. Salt packs work well with period problems (although hot packs should not be used while menstruating as they encourage more bleeding), as well as bladder weakness, cystitis, constipation and digestive weakness. Salt packs support the kidneys to eliminate the toxins after Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy.
Place three cups of rock salt (supermarket variety is fine) in a clean oven dish or tray in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 20-30 minutes. The salt must be roasted not heated in a microwave. Place heated salt in an old pillowcase. Cover abdomen or kidneys with a towel before placing the heated salt pack on top. Cover with another towel to conserve the heat and lie down and enjoy the salt pack for 30-45 minutes. It is good to drink a glass of water while you are relaxing to encourage flushing of the kidneys.
The same salt can be used up to eight times or until it is discoloured.
Caution: Salt can become very hot so be careful not to burn the skin
