Dry Salt Therapy

Halotherapy also known as dry salt therapy is the perfect way to escape the world and take a few minutes for ultimate self-care. In our beautiful salt rooms, you will be surrounded by an environment inspired by tranquility, relaxation and rejuvenation to help you unwind.

Dry salt therapy is very simple to understand

There are three primary characteristics of pure sodium chloride, NaCl, known as salt

Salt is anti-bacterial

Salt is super absorbent 

Salt is anti-inflammatory

How It Works

Dry salt is placed into a halogenerator that precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles. During your session, the salt aerosol is dispersed into the air while you simply breathe and relax. 

The salt generators used here at Saltastic are one of the most technologically advanced halogenerators in the industry, we place quality and your health and safety as a top priority. 

As the salt travels in the salt room, these salt particles are inhaled into the respiratory system. Dry salt naturally stars absorbing allergens, toxins and foreign substances into the lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Because everything in our respiratory system is moist, any pathogen that comes in contact with the salt becomes neutralized and absorbed, salt is also water soluble so your body can now dispose of the pathogens through your waste system. This is why we encourage clients to drink some extra water after their session. The properties of dry salt also absorb impurities and provide antibacterial properties that benefit the skin. The smaller particles can reach beneath the skin’s surface and absorb moisture towards the skin.

European scientific research has found that inhaled dry salt particles have bactericide, mucokinetic, hydrophilic, and anti-inflammatory properties, which may help to reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen the airway passages. According to research by the Salt Therapy Association dry salt has also been found to accelerate the transportation of mucus, the elimination of residual tar and foreign allergens. A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased engird, and an improved immune system.

Everything about  your salt session is subtle and calming, in fact many people fall asleep during their session. There are protocols for different ailments so it’s also important that you make sure you have a consultation with our certified halotherapist before your first session.

Adult Salt Room

WE ASK THAT GUESTS WEAR PROVIDED SLIPPERS WHEN ENJOYING A SALT THERAPY SESSION.

Our adult salt sessions are 45 minutes and begin on the hour throughout the day (See our hours and schedule).  We ask guests to arrive at least 15 minutes prior for their 1st session to check in, receive a tour of the facility, change clothes if desired, lock up their belongings and get comfortable.  After the first visit, we request guests to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the sessions so that when the session begins, lights can be dimmed and a calm, peaceful space for all guests can be ensured.

The temperature in our facility is kept cool (69-72 degrees) and humidity levels around 40% to help mimic the micro-climate of a salt cave. We provide guests with pillows and blankets for those who would like additional warmth.  Salt is circulated throughout the room and if a light is shined during the session, it appears similar to dust floating through the air.  The salt particles settle on clothing so wearing light-coloured clothing is recommended to avoid salt showing on darker clothing.

Spa music plays throughout the session at a comfortable level.  The adult salt accommodates 4 people every hour. The room is equipped with 7 zero-gravity chairs. By distributing your weight evenly, zero-gravity allows your muscles to enter a state of relaxation. Guests are encouraged to leave electronics in our secure lockers and enjoy the time being unplugged.  However, if other music is desired then bringing a device and headphones would be needed.  We also provide books/magazines for guests who wish to read during their session.

Our family salt sessions are 45 minutes and begin on the hour throughout the day (See our hours and schedule).  We ask little guests to arrive at least 15 minutes prior for their 1st session to check in, receive a tour of the facility, lock up their belongings and get comfortable.  After the first visit, we request little guests to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the sessions so that slippers can be put on and children can get comfortable in the setting.  We provide music, toys, puzzles, arts and crafts and Netflix but we also believe our little guests benefit from unplugging from technology and encourage an electronic-free zone so the TV can be turned off if desired. We provide parents with chairs so every guest is comfortable and enjoying the experience.  Children must be supervised at all times. Our family salt  room is designed for kids under 10 years of age.
