Sessions in the Salt Therapy room are 25 minutes in length. While you alone schedule the room, it is large enough for 2 adults or an adult with 2 children to comfortably receive the treatment. If you’d like to invite someone to join you, or you will be bringing someone with you, feel free to let us know ahead of time so we can prepare the space for you.
Sessions in our Salt & Sauna room can be scheduled alone or after a treatment with Dr. Martin or after a Therapeutic Massage. Sessions are 25 minutes long, which is the perfect amount of time to relax and receive the benefits of the therapy, but not so long that it is difficult to fit into your day.
Salt therapy is a natural passive treatment that involves inhaling pharmaceutical-grade dry salt in a comfortable and controlled environment.
As you sit back and relax, a special medical device called a halogenerator will disperse microscopic salt particles into the room. You’ll inhale these tiny particles deep into your airways and lungs and they will also land on your skin.
Salt therapy can help soothe a long list of skin, respiratory and lifestyle conditions, and it is suitable for babies, children and adults. Courses of Salt Therapy sessions can help to greatly improve asthma symptoms, sinus issues, allergy symptoms, eczema & psoriasis, hay fever, colds and flu, sleep and snoring, stress & anxiety and sports performance. It is recommended to come for Salt Therapy 2-3 times a week initially, so many people choose to buy a package of 10 sessions for $200 after trying their first session. A package of 10 sessions allows you to enjoy 3-5 weeks of regular use at 2 or 3 times a week to reap the maximum results.
The benefits of salt therapy were first discovered in 1843 in Poland, where workers in underground salt mines suffered fewer respiratory issues.
By chiseling and grinding the salt, the miners produced micro-sized particles of salt that were dispersed into the air of the mine and then inhaled.
Dry salt is super absorbent and has natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
As it is inhaled, the salt causes your mucus to thin and liquefy, making it easier to dislodge and expel excess mucus – along with pathogens, debris and pollutants. Think of salt like a toothbrush for your airways, cleaning out mucus, pathogens and pollutants.
For skin issues, dry salt can help absorb impurities, regulate the pH level and promote your skin’s ‘good’ bacteria. Salt Therapy improves skin issues by reducing inflammation and encouraging natural exfoliation along with regeneration. To enjoy these skin benefits, the skin needs to be exposed to the Salt Therapy, so it is recommended to dress accordingly when you receive your Salt Therapy session.
