FAQ

What is salt therapy?

Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy is a natural therapy that involves spending time in a salt-infused environment. By way of halogenerator, the air saturates with tiny salt particles, which you breathe in. These salt particles are proven to have various health benefits, especially for respiratory and skin conditions. Salt therapy is a relaxing and drug-free way to support your overall well-being.

What should I wear to a session?

No, the benefits of the pharmaceutical grade salt on your skin lasts as long as you leave it there, so we recommend to shower before your session, not after.

Though you may feel the effects of salt therapy immediately, during or after halotherapy, it is recommended 2-3+ sessions per week for chronic conditions and once a week for general upkeep.

This will improve many aspects of health ranging from respiratory and skin health to boosted immunity.

Who shouldn't use halotherapy?

Salt therapy may not be suitable for everyone. People who have severe or uncontrolled hypertension, acute or active respiratory infections, or contagious conditions should avoid salt therapy. Additionally, individuals with certain skin conditions or open wounds should consult with their healthcare provider before trying it. When in doubt, it's best to check with a medical professional to determine if salt therapy is right for you.
