What should I expect for my first session?
Be sure to arrive 15 minutes early to your first session to allow time to get acquainted with our facility and to store your belongings in our lockers. Wear comfortable clothing as you will be relaxing and focusing on healing. Lighter colors are better, as the salt can be seen on darker clothing. Please bring clean socks to wear into the salt room. If you forget your socks, we have them for $2. We are an electronics-free facility. All electronics can be stored in our lockers.
How does it work?
Micro-ground salt will be dispersed into the air of the room, filling the entire room with the healing properties of salt. This process mimics the environment of salt caves, where salt therapy was originally discovered. Doctors noticed that the people who worked in the mines did not experience the same respiratory ailments as the general public. It was discovered that salt’s anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties are actually beneficial for respiratory conditions, allergies, sinusitis – just to name a few! We now are excited to bring that same micro-climate to you!
Salt Room Etiquette
The Spa/Adult Salt Room has a relaxing spa environment. Please be courteous and respectful to others in the room with you by keeping to yourself and allowing the peaceful energy to remain.
First-time clients please arrive 15-20 minutes early.
Existing clients please arrive 10-15 minutes early.
Spa/Adult salt therapy sessions promptly on the hour. Children’s/Social Room salt therapy sessions promptly on the half hour.
If you arrive 5 minutes after the session has begun, you will not be allowed in the salt room and we will ask you to reschedule for another time. Opening and closing the door to the salt room disrupts the micro-climate created in the room. In addition, we emphasize being on time to respect the other people that would like to enjoy their relaxing session as well.
What is salt therapy?
Salt therapy, also called halotherapy, is a therapeutic and 100% natural, drug-free and non-invasive treatment. Salt therapy is a method of inhaling pure, dry, micronized salt air particles. These particles reach the deepest area of the lungs, absorbing bacteria and pollutants and providing an anti-inflammatory and cleansing effect. This process supports and strengthens the body’s immune system by eliminating toxins and allergens that are trapped within the mucus lining of the respiratory system.
How does salt therapy work?
Dry pharmaceutical grade salt is heated and ground into very tiny micro-particles in a machine called a halogenerator. These dry micro-particles of salt are then blown into the air of the therapy room. During the 45-minute session, the particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli. Bacteria and pollutants are dissolved as salt enters the lungs and respiratory system by eliminating mucous and opening constricted airways.
How do I receive the treatment?
Our treatment rooms are electronics free relaxation zones. In the canyon-themed adult therapy room, you will relax in one of our zero gravity chairs while breathing in the salt air. The room has a salt feature and spa inspired music. You are welcome to meditate, focus on your breath, or even nap. The negative ion environment will help melt away your stress and you will leave the session feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. The ocean-themed children’s room is equipped with toys, trucks, books and a dollhouse. Pink Himalayan salt covers the floor and the children play while receiving the treatment.
