Dry Salt Therapy = Halotherapy

What Is Halotherapy?

The term “Halotherapy” comes from “halo”, the Greek word for salt. Halotherapy is the use of dry salt vapor to treat respiratory ailments, skin irritations, and combat mental lethargy all while you relax and simply breathe.  Salt Therapy is 100% natural, drug-free and non-invasive.  At exhālō, we use only the safest and purest salt form (99.99% Pure Sodium Chloride) for halogenerator usage.  This is one of the highest-grade salts you can find on the market, and the cleanest salt to use for both respiratory and skin conditions.  It also ensures the salt particles are small enough to have the maximum halotherapy effect.   We also combine this treatment with the multiple benefits of Speleotherapy with our warmly lit Himalayan salt bricks surrounding the perimeter of our Salt Room, as well as on a feature wall which each loungers faces to ensure the utmost of privacy during your relaxation time.

Salt in its micro-crystalline form has antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral effects on the epithelial cells (one of the body’s most important for protection and secretion). The salt helps your cells consolidate inflammation and mucus, so your body can get rid of it.   Simply breathe while you treat symptoms of asthma, allergies, sinus issues, head colds and more. 

 Reduce stress, anxiety, depression and even skin ailment symptoms of eczema, psoriasis or acne.

Get ready to unwind, meditate or nap, and simply lay back in our reclining loungers for your 45-50 min. session to inhale salt, and exhale wellness. Enjoy our tranquil Tibetan meditation music or download and listen to your own with use of our headsets and free WiFi.  Sessions are available to both Men & Women, and children under 10 are welcome on our "Family Day" Sundays.  


Simply exhale, we've got you...

What Is Himalayan Salt?

Our featured Himalayan salt bricks are natural pieces of salt crystal that have been hand excavated from ancient primordial salt rock that has crystallized at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan.   As salt crystal is naturally hygroscopic, it will absorb water molecules from the air, so you may notice our salt bricks or feature walls begin to "cry" if they’ve remained unlit for any period of time. The heat from our light sources keeps these beautiful crystals dry, and in turn releases healthy negative ions into the air at exhalo Spa.

Salt has been used throughout the ages to clean energies from homes and people. You can use Salt to clear crystals, clear your body and clear your home. Because salt crystals vibrate at a frequency closer to the earth’s magnetic frequency (known as the shuman resonance frequency) they can also help bring us back in balance. The various healthy living ionizing objects that fill our Spa (like many green plants & Himalayan salt crystals) will literally make you feel better! As you can see, pure Himalayan Salt has multiple benefits for the body.

By combining these unique therapeutic properties with the purest salt form (99.99% Pure Sodium Chloride) for our halogenerator inhalation usage, we can treat multiple ailments in our joyful, healing spa.
