Salt Room Experience
Taking wellness to another level, halotherapy — AKA salt therapy — is a top spa trend today. This alternative treatment involves breathing salty air. Advocates tout it for its wide-ranging benefits. It is thought to ease anxiety and depression; treat respiratory conditions, such as allergies, asthma and chronic bronchitis; and address skin conditions, such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.
SALT offers a dry method of halotherapy in a custom-built salt room that’s free of humidity. The temperature is cool, set to 68°F or lower. Sessions typically last 30 to 45 minutes.
A device called a halogenerator grinds salt into microscopic particles and releases them into the air. Once inhaled, these particles are thought to absorb irritants, including allergens and toxins, from the respiratory system. Advocates say this process breaks up mucus and reduces inflammation, resulting in clear airways. The salt particles are said to have a similar effect on your skin, absorbing bacteria and other impurities.
