Q: WHAT IS DRY SALT THERAPY?
A: Halotherapy is a dry salt therapy that utilizes a halogenerator to grind and crush salt into micronized particles that are dispersed into the SALT Booth® via a dry salt aerosol that works to aid respiratory concerns and skin conditions. If there is no halogenerator, there is no halotherapy.
Q: WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SALT ROOM SESSION?
A: Dry Salt Therapy acts to cleanse the respiratory system and the skin, which helps to relieve congestion, inflammation, and skin conditions. Sessions are non-invasive. Once you enter the SALT Room, you can sit and relax. The lights will dim, and you can choose to listen to relaxing music, read a book or magazine, meditate, or simply rest. The temperature and humidity in the rooms are controlled to provide an optimal experience. You will find pure relaxation and tranquility away from your everyday stress, leaving you rejuvenated and fully energized. (Cell phones, electronics, and jewelry are usually not permitted since salt can be corrosive.)
The salt, 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride, is heated and then ground and crushed into very tiny microparticles. These dry aerosol microparticles of salt are then dispersed into the SALT Room where they are inhaled and penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. The non-inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin and are absorbed. When your session is over, you may notice a faint trace of salt on your lips, and the slight taste of salt on your tongue. Any salt that collects on your clothing can be easily brushed off. A runny nose or increase in coughing means your body clearing out mucus and toxins.
Q: HOW SHOULD I DRESS IN A SALT ROOM?
A: Loose, comfortable clothing that you can relax in works best. If you are using Dry Salt Therapy for a skin condition, you’ll want to have that area exposed.
