Salt inhalation therapy also known as halotherapy ( halo meaning salt) has been used for hundreds of years throughout Europe in the form of speleotherapy (speleo meaning cave). In 1839 Dr Felixs Bocszkowski opened the first therapeutic salt facility in the deep salt mines of Wieliczka Poland. The facility is still in use today.
Romania also enjoys a natural salt mine that is being used for therapeutic benefits. Doctors regularly prescribe a therapeutic allotment of time for their patients to stay inside the salt cave and insurances actually pay for it. This is quite different than our Western approach to medicine where large pharmaceutical companies play a pivotal role in our health care system.
Halotherapy has bactericide, mucokinetic, hydrophilic and anti-inflammatory properties which results in reduced inflammation in the entire respiratory tract. Halotherapy benefits the respiratory system, tones the autonomic nervous system as well as the cardiovascular system. It is great for the skin which is one of the body's largest detox organs. It boosts the immune system and supports mental functioning. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties the salt air helps relieve achy joints and inflamed bowels. It naturally reduces anxiety with its negative ions and improves rem sleep. Please read the clinical studies for more information.
Salt air is naturally antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial. This is why salt has been used for millennia as a natural preservative for food and other dry goods. Salt was used in the mummification process resulting in the preservation of tissues that has lasted literally thousands of years.
Salt air is all-natural and it's only side effects are improved states of health and well being. Here at the Float Away Emotional Wellness we believe that a balance can be reached when we integrate more all-natural therapies into our western lifestyles. Salt air therapy does not replace any medical regime prescribed by your physician but compliments and supports a healthy lifestyle.
During the standard adult 45 minute session each guest will be seated in their own zero gravity lounge chair with a blanket for comfort. Salt air is distributed into the cave by way of a halo generator which micro particulates the salt before disbursement into the air. A guided meditation recording is played to center and quiet the busy mind as part of the stress management aspects of our salt cave. You will feel the negative ions relaxing every muscle group in your body as it melts into the lounge chair.
During the 45 minute session, you will have breathed in approximately a week's worth of salt air as though you had you been sitting sea side.
$40 per session.
