The Salt Room has been specifically constructed to help allergy sufferers relieve their symptoms and feel better in a safe, peaceful environment that feels more like a spa than a high-tech treatment facility.
Prescription drugs bring temporary relief but the symptoms may recur again—and again.
If you are suffering from allergies, you should strongly consider salt therapy. It will not only bring much needed relief but it also prevents frequent recurrences of your allergy symptoms.
Salt therapy at The Salt Room provides allergy relief by widening the airways of the respiratory tract. The micro particles of salt reach into every area of the sinuses and respiratory system destroying bacteria. This helps to reduce the inflammation of the respiratory tract and sinuses. It clears the blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles as well as the sinus cavities.
If you are suffering from allergy symptoms, salt therapy will help decrease the swelling of the “nasal mucosa” which causes nasal blockage. The airway passage of the nose will be widened and the sinuses can drain naturally…bringing relief.

It is estimated that approximately 50 million Americans have allergies or allergy symptoms.
Asthma is a chronic respiratory disease that affects approximately 300 million people around the world including a large proportion of children. About 7% of the US population are victims of asthma. Every year asthma claims 4,000 lives in the US alone. Prescription drugs and inhalers may bring immediate relief, however the use of salt therapy can keep inflammation and irritation in the lungs to a minimum.
A patient suffering from asthma will find relief with salt therapy as it helps widen the airways as well as humidifies and fluidizes the bronchial secretions in the bronchial tree, thereby reducing bronchospasm. Salt therapy provides a natural asthma treatment as it absorbs the edema from the mucosa lining the airway passages, using the natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of salt. An asthma patient will start breathing easily after just a few sessions. These sessions will also decrease your coughing and your dependence on asthma inhalers and drugs. A suggested treatment regimen of 5-15 sessions will provide benefits for as long as 6-12 months. For those clients who want to maintain the benefits of salt therapy with regular use, a membership is available for only $90 per month and provides unlimited sessions of salt therapy each month.
But unlike Speleotherapy, where the patient is taken into a natural salt cave, halotherapy provides the additional benefit of treatment in controlled conditions. The temperature, humidity and sodium chloride flow are constantly monitored to give optimum effect. The client is able to relax in the Salt Room which offers a spa like atmosphere.
Dry sodium chloride aerosol containing particles of 1-5 microns in size are blown into this room by a halogenerator. In order to treat asthma, the environment is saturated with dry sodium chloride aerosol at a mass concentration varying from 1-16 mg/m3 . Typically asthma treatment involves drugs which include steroids that may have harmful side effects. Salt therapy has no side effects or negative interaction with other medication.
