Salt Room

Halotherapy in the Salt Room

Halotherapy (salt therapy) is an all natural, drug free, holistic therapy done in a controlled air environment kept at a cool temperature around 68 degrees to recreate the natural salt cave microclimate.

The walls of our Salt Room are fully lined with Himalayan salt crystals that are known to release neutralizing negative ions. These ions counteract overstimulation caused by electrical pollution. While one Himalayan salt lamp releases low levels of ions, a fully lined room creates a high level of neutral energy known to relax your mind and body.

A halogenerator grinds up Himalayan Salt dispersing and maintaining controlled levels of dry salt aerosol into the room. These tiny mineralized particles attach to the excess moisture in your respiratory system and enter your blood stream. The excess moisture throughout your system is then lessened, reducing inflammation and improving lung function. Salt therapy also has positive benefits for skin, helps increase immunity, stimulates metabolism, improves concentration, helps decrease fatigue, and improves your mood.

In the salt room, our clients are invited to rest on comfortable chairs surrounded by the calming glow of pure salt crystals, while breathing in the dry Himalayan salt aerosol. Lockable units are available outside the salt room to keep anything you don’t wish to bring in with you.

Benefits of Halotherapy

Breathing in the dry salt aerosol is said to foster good sleep, alleviate symptoms of allergies and asthma, relieve hypertension and stress, and even cure hangovers. However, we make no official medical claims, we are just believers and rely on what we have learned and heard.*
