Salt has been used therapeutically for thousands of years. Doctors from as early as the 1800s have been using salt as an inhalation treatment for asthma and current-day doctors swear by the benefits breathing in salt particles can bring. Halotherapy was first introduced in the 1990s and has since become a holistic method for patients to strengthen their minds and body. Let’s go over everything you’ve been wondering about salt therapy.
What is Halotherapy?
Halotherapy is a form of wellness therapy that involves the patient breathing in salt particles. Often coupled with guided meditation or a supplemental wellness treatment like IV nutrient therapy, halotherapy has become a staple holistic wellness therapy for many of our patients. Halotherapy sessions at Art of Balance Wellness Spa typically last about 50 minutes and provide patients with a stress-free environment to disconnect from the daily hustle and bustle.
What Can I Expect During a Halotherapy Session?
Halotherapy treatments can either be done through wet methods or dry methods. At Art of Balance Wellness Spa, we use the dry method of halotherapy. This involves surrounding our patients in an environment that mimics a naturally-occurring salt cave. In this room, microscopic salt particles are carefully added into the air, maintaining the perfect level that allows for relaxation and inhibits the benefits of salt inhalation. During this time, you’ll be able to relax however you like. We always encourage you to consider guided meditation to enhance the stress-reducing benefits of the treatment.
What are the Benefits of Halotherapy?
There are many benefits to undergoing regular halotherapy treatments at Art of Balance, including:
- Reduced inflammation
- Reduced overall stress
- Enhanced breathing function
- Soothing of asthma symptoms
- Soothing of coughing or respiratory illness
Is Halotherapy Expensive?
No, halotherapy is not at all expensive. A standard 50-minute halotherapy treatment at Art of Balance starts at just $50. When considering most patients only come in for treatments once each month, it’s safe to say our halotherapy treatments give you a lot of bang for your buck. Even adding onto your treatment won’t break your bank. Our most popular addition to halotherapy, guided meditation, is just an additional $25 per treatment session.
Is Halotherapy Right for Me?
If you’re in general good health and are looking for a holistic treatment to help reduce your stress and enhance your respiratory function, halotherapy may be right for you. Many of our patients notice the benefits of their halotherapy treatment just a few minutes into their treatment sessions.
