The Meaning of exhālō
The word exhālō is a unique creation and intentional play on the words exhale and halotherapy. Our watercolour mandala logo centers and calms the mind with vivid blue tones inspired by salty sea and air. Featured in the centre is the throat chakra symbol known as the center of purification where energy transforms. The throat chakra not only relates to the respiratory system but is considered the voice of the body, thus all of our unique beauty services are built surrounding our centered Salt Therapy Room.
Our exhalo mission is to spread joy through the power of touch! We believe in providing the best services and products possible, along with the highest levels of cleanliness, sterilization practices, and customer service. We focus on offering a warm and relaxing environment where everyone is welcome and feels like they can simply exhale... because we've got you.
Our exhālō facility offers a Himalayan salt room to enjoy Halotherapy (dry salt therapy inhalation) for 1-2 persons, four treatment rooms for our luxurious Eminence Organic Spa face & body treatments along with waxing & sugaring services, four pedicure, and three manicure stations to suit group parties or individuals, Jane Iredale Makeup artistry services, and So Pure Kuene & WELLA haircare & colour.
We are the proud recipient of the West Ottawa Board of Trade's 2018 Business Excellence Award for New Business of the Year, and the recipient of the 2019 Consumers Choice Award for Business Excellence in the category of Day Spa.

Welcome to exhālō
Opening in Ottawa June 2017
The word exhālō is a unique creation and intentional play on the words exhale and halotherapy.
Our carefully chosen mandala logo centers and calms the mind, and features the throat chakra symbol known as the center of purification, as this is where energy becomes transformed. The throat chakra not only relates to the respiratory system, but is considered the voice of the body,
The vivid tones of blue were chosen to best represent this fifth chakra and first of the higher or spiritual chakras, and were inspired by colours of the sea and air.
Whether your taking in a healthy salt filled breath, relishing in the power of human touch through our wonderful spa treatments or expressing yourself through a new and exciting hair design, as you exhale allow your mind and body to simply let go... we've got you baby.
What Is Halotherapy?
The term “Halotherapy” comes from the Greek word “halo”, which means salt. Halotherapy is a powerful, yet natural treatment created by a halogenerator that stimulates a natural salt cave microclimate. This dry salt vapor is antiviral and used in unique conjunction with our softly lit Himalayan salt bricks. This service treats respiratory ailments, skin conditions, and reduces symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression all while you relax and simply breathe. Inhale salt, and exhale wellness.
