What is Halotherapy?

Dry salt therapy, or halotherapy, is a natural alternative and complimentary way of improving general wellness, respiratory issues, skin conditions, detoxification, athletic performance, and more. Halotherapy is a non-invasive, drug-free wellness ritual with no side effects.

Attending salt therapy sessions regularly may help manage symptoms of chronic conditions, such as asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, psoriasis, and eczema. Dry salt therapy may also be used seasonally as a preventative measure against allergies, viruses, and common cold. If you do not have any medical concerns, you may still benefit from salt therapy. It is excellent for relaxation, anti-stress, jet lag, and general wellness.

How Does it Work?
step1.png
Get Salty

Dry 99% pure-grade sodium chloride is ground by our state-of-the-art halogenerator into particles the size of 2 to 5 microns.  For comparison, one strand of hair is the size of 50 to 70 microns.  This microscopic size allows the salt particles to penetrate deep into the skin and respiratory system.

Relax & Breathe

As salt particles are dispersed into the air, you will relax and breathe deeply in our salt vault. Sit back in a zero gravity lounge chair and relax to ocean waves or sounds of serenity. By the end of your session you will feel calm and refreshed.

Be Well

After salt therapy, your symptoms may be alleviated and easier to manage.  Open airways, increased lung capacity, and improved mental wellness are all possible.  Many people find relief from asthma, allergies, COPD, cystic fibrosis, psoriasis, and eczema.

allergies & sinusitis


When your body comes into contact with allergens, your immune system can inflame your skin and sinus airways. Inflammation can be reduced by inhaling natural salt particles during a dry salt therapy session. Sinusitis can cause cavities surrounding your nasal passages to become swollen or inflamed. This interferes with drainage, causing mucus buildup and pockets of debris or bacteria to form. Salt therapy can provide relief of swollen passageways, improve drainage and promote a thinning of mucus secretions, allowing them to drain properly. Improved drainage can allow for reduction in contaminants that may trigger or prolong allergic episodes.




asthma


Lung function is improved as salt widens and clears your respiratory system. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory sodium chloride particles have the ability to reach the deepest recesses of the respiratory system, translating to clearer air passages and fewer spasmodic attacks. Reduced inflammation and wider airways can decrease constricted breathing. Wheezing, coughing and dependence on inhalers can improve from continued sessions.




cough, colds, flu


A viral infection of your nose, throat and upper respiratory tract is present with a common cold and flu. With salt therapy, your breathing becomes easier as the salt particles naturally absorb edema from swollen passages, thin mucus and make drainage easier. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties can reach the root of the problem as they are inhaled into the deepest parts of our cavities.




cystic fibrosis


Inhaled salt particles thins unnaturally thick and sticky mucus often caused by cystic fibrosis. This can unclog passageways and clear accumulated buildup. Absorption of edema from mucus lining and reduction in inflammation of respiratory tract and sinuses can be additional benefits.
