Salt therapy is a natural and non-invasive treatment suitable for adults and children of all ages that helps to cleanse both the airways and the skin to relieve congestion, inflammation and irritation.
By breathing in the micro salt particles, the airways open up, increasing of oxygen intake and cleansing the respiratory system of smoke, dust, pollutants and other allergens.

What to expect…
During the salt session a halogenerator is grinding up pharmaceutical grade salt, and pumping micro aerosol particles back out into the room. The salt air will administer natural healing as it travels into the lungs to help relieve inflammation and loosen congestion.
Within the 45 minutes session breathing can improve and become easier, as well that symptoms of irritation, wheezing and coughing can alleviate.
Throughout the session adults can sit back and relax in the comfort of our 6 large, reclining massage chairs. There will be soft, relaxing music for you to listen to during the session. You may use your phone or tablet, read, listen to your own music or even take a nap. For children’s entertainment we provide toys in the play area for them to use.
* Salt Therapy is a complementary therapy meant to be used in conjunction with traditional medicine. Never change or stop medication without first consulting your doctor.
