In our private salt room, you have the option of being by yourself or with a spouse/friend.[/vc_column_text]
Basically, you want to be comfortable. Loose clothing that you can relax in is best. If you have a skin condition you may want to wear something that exposes more skin. For those without skin conditions such as (dermatitis, eczema or psoriasis)…these conditions are not contagious and cannot be passed from one person the other. The salt in the air will not harm or be noticeable on your clothes. You will be given disposable shoe coverings to slip over your feet or shoes. For children we request that they come in clean clothing and socks and that long hair be pulled back in a ponytail.
If you need your inhaler or other medical device, please bring it with you into the session.
Consuming too much salt is linked to high blood pressure. With salt therapy, you are inhaling a dry salt aerosol which only enters your respiratory system not your digestion tract. The salt particles are so fine that even if you were to eat that amount it would not pose a risk to your health.
Salt is anti-inflammatory, meaning it absorbs moisture. Sea air is not as potent because it is already moist, which takes away its strong ability to heal. When you breathe in dry salt aerosol in our treatment rooms, the particles line your airways and draw out the fluid from the inflamed airway. This fluid, now mixed with the salt goes to work on cleaning the walls of the airways. One session in a salt room is equivalent to three (3) days at beach.
When you arrive at Saltastic, you will be directed to check in and fill out our client intake form. We will then bring you on a tour of our facility. Clients are advised to remove footwear, disposable shoe covers are provided and must be worn once in the salt rooms, clients just sit, relax and breathe. Our staff can answer any questions you may have.
Electronics are not allowed during sessions. Salt rooms are full of negative ions, which have “clarity effect”, reduce stress, headaches, lethargy, depression and increase energy, mental alertness, and overall sense of well being. Electronics are positively charged which would defeat the purpose of the negative ions.
