About salt therapy and the benefits

For centuries, people have trusted the benefits of Himalayan salt therapy/ (salt cave therapy/Halotherapy) to strengthen their immune systems and relieve respiratory illnesses.

Essentially, a salt room- or salt cave- is an enclosed space with carefully controlled salt concentration and ventilation. While in this space, participants breathe in tiny salt particles that are put into the air by a machine called a halo generator. Halotherapy involves inhaling a fine aerosol mist of therapeutic grade salt.

Today, people of all ages can benefit from the natural healing properties found in salt through Himalayan salt therapy in a man-made Himalayan salt cave to find relief for a variety of health issues like asthma, skin disorders and boosts the immune system. Salt therapy is a drug free therapy for everyone. Practiced since the 18th century the therapy is shown to have many health, healing and wellness benefits.

We at A Valley of Vitality Wellness Studio start by purifying the air in a climate controlled specifically designed room (salt cave) In a germ free and allergen free environment. We then fill the air with pharmaceutically graded salt particles that are released into the room. These tiny particles are inhaled and immediately transported to all parts of the upper and lower respiratory tract. While your treatment is taking place, you can then sit back and relax breathing normally and enjoying the positive effects in a warm and relaxing environment.

Himalayan Salt has natural benefits

Salt therapy is a drug free treatment that reproduces the natural micro-climate of a salt cave by dispersing a dry pharmaceutical grade salt in high concentrations in a halo chamber where the surfaces are covered with layers of salt. Our salt therapy room is in a highly sterile environment, in a setting that is serene and calm, to help clients relax and get the most out of their sessions both physiologically and psychologically.  The dry salt aerosol in the room plays an important role in in the relief of health problems and is a highly effective therapy for treating people with respiratory problems and skin problems without any known side effects. Experience why our Himalayan salt therapy cave is unique.
