Established in 2018, The Salt Therapy Room is part of a consortium of therapies practicing under the same roof. Located on the lower level and ADA accessible, The Salt Therapy Room offers a beautiful, relaxing and peaceful space to enjoy the multitude of benefits of dry salt therapy (aka as Halotherapy). A soothing experience that captivates your senses: you will be surrounded by the warm inviting light illuminating the Himalayan Salt Bricks on the walls, you'll feel the crunch of small salt rocks under your feet, you'll breathe in and taste the light salty essence of the ground salt in the air, as you lean back in our Zero-Gravity Loungers and listen to the calming sounds of soft music.
HOW DOES IT WORK? Dry salt is placed into a halogenerator that then precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles, and then disperses the salt into the air in a closed environment (The Salt Therapy Room). As you are relaxing in this soothing environment, these salt particles are inhaled into your respiratory system, where the dry salt naturally starts absorbing allergens, toxins and foreign substances that are in your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract, clearing out all the “bad stuff.”
WHAT DOES SALT THERAPY DO? Dry salt may help to reduce inflammation and open airway passages for those suffering from respiratory conditions like allergies, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, COPD and others. In clinical trials, breathing difficulties were relieved in 85% of asthma sufferers, and the duration of a cold was cut in half.
The properties of dry salt also absorb impurities and provide anti-bacterial properties that benefit skin conditions as well, such as acne, psoriasis and eczema, and regulates the skin’s micro-circulation. The smaller particles can reach beneath the skin’s surface and absorb moisture towards the skin. The larger salt particles land on the skin and absorb any bacterial and foreign substances. The dry salt also accelerates cell rejuvenation and improves skin rigidity.
And if that was not enough to convince you to cozy up in a salt room, it is also known to promote weight loss by regulating cortisol, the fat-promoting stress hormone. Research shows a dramatic drop in these levels up to 36% after a session (University Medical Center Groningen, Netherlands; study).
Additionally, the gently heating of the salt produces negatively charges ions which has been shown to boost mood by 40%, reduce anxiety and produce a calming effect that can improve sleep quality and reduce the frequency and severity of headaches (NY State Psychiatric Institute: study).
All you have to do is relax, lay back in our Zero-Gravity loungers and… Just Breathe.
