Salt Inhalation Therapy
Also known as halotherapy (halo = salt)
Salt air inhalation therapy is a holistic drug free way to ease symptoms of many common respiratory ailments such as allergies, sinuitis, asthma, bronchitis COPD, cystic fibrosis and even the common cold.
known as speleotherapy (speleos = cave)
The salty atmosphere of the deep salt caves within the Himalayan Mountains have been used for centuries for their health promoting effects.
Their mineral rich content is beneficial for improving skin conditions, digestive disorders, and inflammatory conditions such as arthralgias (joint pains) and much much more.
Spending 45 minutes in the salt cave is the equivalent of approximately one full week at the ocean.
It’s proven that when inflammation is reduced systemically and breathing is enhanced, the result is a more restful and restorative sleep, and the net effect is an overall sense of improved well being.
Salt Bed Skin Therapy
The salt bed is amazing for all natural skin therapy. Just 20 minutes in the salt bed delivers a weeks worth of ocean air inhalation. You will reap all the internal benefits from the salt bed that you experience in the salt cave with the added bonus of skin therapy.
Salt air is blown into the chamber and deposited on the skin. The salt is micro particulated so it feels like a soft emollient on the skin without leaving a powdery residue. In addition, there is 100lbs of Pink Himalayan salt in the base of the bed which has radiant heating to make the salt crystals release negative ions. These negative ions are not only detoxifying but produce a visceral relaxation response as well.
The salt bed will firm and hydrate the skin.
The salt bed will detoxify the skin.
The salt bed can greatly improve skin issues like eczema, psoriasis and even acne
