Tips on how to survive allergy season

Tips on how to survive allergy season

Oh, joy to be having itchy eyes, sneezing, congestion, dark circles and watery eyes! During this time, we get so many unhappy people looking for relief, so they can simply BREATHE and not have to be constantly rubbing their eyes. In all reality, allergies are the reason The Salt Station was opened. We want to help people in our community get relief from their allergies just like our family has, thanks to salt therapy. Salt therapy is a fantastic alternative to allergy medicine and allergy shots. Our members with allergies have been able to stop taking medicine and shots. So, they aren’t suffering through the allergy season like they use to. If you have any of the symptoms mentioned earlier, we would recommend coming in for 3 salt therapy sessions per week, over a consistent period. There are also other precautions you can take at home to keep the pollen, dust and dander at a minimum.

  1. Keep your windows closed and change your air filters frequently.
  2. Avoid outdoor activities and sports if your allergies get worse being outside for long periods of time. If you play outdoor sports and can’t avoid it, then try not to be outside when there is a high pollen count – which is typically between 5am and 10am. So, playing in the afternoon would be best.
  3. Hot, dry days will have higher pollen count than cold, rainy days. Keep this in mind while making outdoor plans.
  4. Change your clothes once you get home from an outing. Pollen likes to stick to fabric.
  5. Take daily night baths if you spend time outdoors, as this removes pollen that has saturated your face or body.
  6. Wash your sheets, pillow cases, and comforters often.
  7. Keep your pets out of the bedroom.
  8. Ceiling fans – turn them off. They move the dust in the room around.
Peak of Flu Season

Peak of Flu Season

It’s December, already! This month starts off the peak of flu season for us. You know what that means, an abundance of people feeling under the weather. Colds in general tend to get passed around to other family members, friends, caregivers, and co-workers. Which means no school for them and no work for you. Ever had the flu passed around in your family? When I was a child, I had the flu. Then my sister did. Then my mom did. So, in total my mom didn’t go to work for nearly 3 weeks. My poor mom was only trying to take care of me and my sister. Her care and love got her rewarded with a terrible case of the flu. The flu game is no fun, no fun at all.

Here at The Salt Station, we have been hearing quite a few cases of adults and children getting the flu. Yet we are only scraping the surface of flu season. When you think about it, when you get the flu, the first thing you do is take enough Ibuprofen to muscle up the energy to go to the doctors. Then spend less than 2 minutes with the doctor the entire hour you’re suffering through to be there, possibly get a shot in the bottom and be prescribed a medicine. Which may, or may not, work. That’s the typical protocol. Now, have you ever thought of a method to prevent you from getting the flu in the first place? Here at The Salt Station, we like to take an alternative approach to health and wellness. Living a healthy lifestyle is all about prevention. Building your immune system so well that not even a pesky flu-zombie can penetrate it. Sounds impossible, right?

Think again. Salt halotherapy is an ancient therapy that has helped millions of people live a health-giving lifestyle. It’s an all-natural way to keep your family healthy by preventing colds and boosting the immune system. Salt is naturally antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral and antifungal. The micro-particles of dry salt dispersed in the air are absorbent and act like a sponge, attracting foreign substances along their path through the respiratory tract. This cleansing of the respiratory system naturally results in an improved immune system, higher oxygen intake and increased energy.

In our adult Canyon Room, you simply lay down in a comfortable chair and relax for 45 minutes. In our children’s Aquarium Room, the kiddos play with toys in the Himalayan salt that’s on the floor of the room while you catch up on that book you keep meaning to read. Oh, but there is one catch…all you must do is BREATHE. Build you and your family’s fight response this flu season at The Salt Station. We have 3 different therapy rooms to accommodate everyone’s needs. Come in when you’re ready to take control of you and your family’s health and start your journey to a strong immune system with us!

Athletic Recovery

Athletic Recovery

You strive to beat your fastest times, lift more and play harder. You work your body to its limits to achieve your goals. You pay attention to your body’s response to training and give your muscles rest when needed. But have you stopped to think about how your lungs and respiratory system play a key role in your athletic endeavors? Have you thought about what you can do to keep your lungs healthy, clear and functioning to their maximum capacity?Homepage-runners

Salt therapy is a natural and drug-free method of cleansing and detoxing your lungs and respiratory system. The anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of salt clear mucus, pollutants and allergens from your airways and help restore the natural function of the lung’s cilia. Salt therapy improves your performance because a clean respiratory system results in better lung function, increased oxygen carrying capacity (VO2 max) and clearer airways. These vital performance enhancers will help you run faster, increase your stamina and raise your energy levels.

Incorporating salt therapy into your training routine helps cleanse your lungs, rejuvenate your mind and relax your body. You will leave the 45-minute session in the Canyon Room ready to go further, run faster and increase your intensity. Visit The Salt Station today for a session – the only side effects are achieving your goals and setting the bar even higher!


Skin Care

Skin Care

Did you know that skin is your body’s largest organ?  It helps regulate your body temperature, detects hot and cold and provides a protective barrier for your internal organs.  Here in South Florida, we need to pay close attention to skin care because of frequent exposure to the sun’s harmful rays.  Sun exposure can cause wrinkles, sun spots, and dry patches.

Salt halotherapy is a natural way to keep your skin healthy and clean, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, and treat conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema.  Salt halotherapy disperses micro-particles of dry salt into the air. The smaller particles reach beneath your skin’s surface and pull moisture towards the top layers of your skin. The larger particles land on your skin and absorb any bacteria or foreign substances.  The dry salt also normalizes your skin’s pH level and impacts microcirculation. This is vital to keeping your skin looking youthful, healthy and radiant by accelerating cell rejuvenation and improving skin rigidity. After just one session in our salt rooms your skin will feel cleaner, softer and smoother!


Adding salt therapy to your skin care regime is as simple as a 15-minute session in The Salt Station’s private SALT Bed.  The private bed allows for maximum skin exposure in a minimum amount of time.  Our salt bed is customizable; creating a skin care cycle that is tailored specifically to your needs.  Come in to The Salt Station for your first Salt Bed halotherapy treatment.

Back to School

Back to School

It’s hard to believe that summer is coming to an end and the start of a new school year is just around the corner. For many children, a new school year means exposure to more germs leading to more colds. Elementary school children have an average of 8 to 12 colds a year! Often those colds are passed on to parents, siblings and caregivers, leading to missed school and work.

Many people wait until the coughing and sneezing has started and then treat the symptoms with over the counter medicines and nose sprays. At The Salt Station, we believe in a different philosophy – prevention. Salt halotherapy is an all-natural way to keep your family healthy by preventing colds and boosting their immune system. The micro-particles of dry salt dispersed in the air are absorbent and act like a sponge, attracting foreign substances along their path through the respiratory tract. This cleansing of the respiratory system naturally results in an improved immune system, higher oxygen intake and increased energy. In fact, halotherapy is the only known method of cleaning and detoxing the lungs. Exposure to pollutants, bacteria and allergens is unavoidable, but salt halotherapy helps counteract that negative exposure and leads to better lung function and thus better overall health.
