The Salt Room

Relax and unplug for 45 minutes in our Salt Room, which is fully lined with Himalayan salt blocks.  Elevate your feet in a zero-gravity lounge chair or nestle your toes in the Himalayan salt.

 

Dry salt therapy uses 99.99% pure pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride, NaCl which has these beneficial properties:

 

  • super absorbent (especially when it is completely dry)

  • anti-bacterial

  • anti-inflammatory

This type of dry salt is placed into our halogenerator, that precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles, and then disperses the salt aerosol into the air.​  

The dry salt particles are inhaled into your respiratory system and naturally start absorbing allergens, toxins, and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract, providing a variety of respiratory benefits.  

The dry salt particles not inhaled absorb impurities and provide anti-bacterial properties that benefit your skin.

According to the Salt Therapy Association, for general respiratory hygiene, once or twice a week visiting your local salt therapy facility will enhance the lung capacity, boost immune system, reduce stress and aid better sleep.

Dry Salt Therapy FAQs

Frequently asked questions

What do I wear for a Salt Therapy Session?


Loose, comfortable, light colored clothing to relax in works best. If you are using Dry Salt Therapy for a skin condition you will want to have that area exposed.




How many sessions do I need? How often should I go?


Based on your condition and symptoms, this can vary. For best results we recommend a series of treatments. Some customers prefer to use Dry Salt Therapy as a continuous preventative measure.




Is Dry Salt Therapy Safe for Children?


For children, Dry Salt Therapy is not only safe, but it is a highly recommended natural treatment and there are no harmful side effects. The treatment is suitable for children of any age (as young as one month old). Children often respond to the therapy even faster than adults. During a Dry Salt Therapy session, children can play with toys, read books, and interact with other children. Reference: "The use of halotherapy for the health improvement in children at institutions of general education"




What about the concern that salt is bad for you?


Dry Salt Therapy is a respiratory treatment and does not impact the digestive system so the dietary concerns about salt do not apply. The amount of micro salt particles inhaled into your respiratory system during a session are extremely low and does not present a risk to your health.




What type of salt is used?


Only 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride (salt) is used. All of the clinical studies and research for halotherapy involve only using this type of salt. Although the salt is taken from the earth and seas, it goes through a process of eliminating and removing all debris and contaminants. It is not processed with any additives or caking agents such as table salts and the salts used in a decor element.
