Salt Room FAQs

Do I need to wear any special clothes for salt therapy?

You will remain fully-clothed for your salt therapy session in our salt room.  You won't come out visibly covered in salt, so you'll be ready to go about your day. 

Is salt therapy good for kids?

Children DO benefit from salt therapy!  In fact, sometimes faster than adults.  Kids enjoy it!  The floor of our salt room is covered in Himalayan Salt and there are sand toys for added fun!

How many salt therapy sessions will I need?

The frequency of salt therapy sessions depends on the type and severity of the client’s condition as well as and their wellness goals. For respiratory conditions, such as asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, bronchitis, sinusitis, or allergies it is best to “front load” by doing 2-3 salt therapy sessions within the first 7-10 days to saturate the airways, then back down to once or twice a week to find what maintenance looks like for you. Clients with a more severely compromised respiratory tract/condition will want to start salt therapy sessions at a lower concentration over a longer session time. Most skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and dry itchy skin may require a higher concentration and more frequent visits. Our equipment allows us to create personalized salt therapy sessions for each client by adjusting the strength and duration of each session.  Chronic conditions require sustained use over time for best results. The results are cumulative, so it's best to make salt therapy part of your regular wellness practice. 

What if I'm running late for my session?

Please understand that all salt therapy appointments are scheduled on the hour and half-hour. Each client spends approximately 25 minutes in the salt room and then the cabin vents for 3-5 minutes.  If you miss your appointment time, you may not receive your full session.

What kind of salt is used for salt therapy?

Pure, pharmaceutical-grade salt (99.99% pure sodium chloride) is used in all of our salt therapy sessions. It contains no added minerals or other potential contaminants or fillers. It comes from a natural source and is naturally processed to remove all of its impure elements. It's the same salt that hospitals in Eastern Europe use in their salt rooms as well as the same salt used in salt therapy research. We do not recommend Himalayan or sea salt as it is not stripped of all the impurities. There could be dirt, clay or some type of debris that could be harmful to the lungs. Himalayan salt can be healthy for the digestive system but not for the respiratory system.
