About this service
Salt caves have been known for centuries for their anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-microbial benefits. Exposure to salt can help inflammatory skin conditions, like acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Benefits are also seen for respiratory problems like allergies, and for reducing inflammation in the lungs. Inhaling salt stimulates overall respiratory function and may help relieve chronic congestion and sinusitis. Today, even in rural areas, our air quality is not what it once was. At Origin Wellness, we take care to create a clean environment, enriched with pure, ionized salt. Thanks to the salt and ion generators, our Salt Room is full of negative ions that are highly beneficial for the body. We add other ingredients like full-spectrum light treatment in the room to help you relax, destress, and breathe well.
People often ask us what an experience in the salt room compares to in nature. It's like being at the beach or next to a waterfall without the water. The air feels full of life and it is very refreshing.
Preparing for the Service
As with all of our services, we recommend drinking plenty of water both before and after the session, especially since we often forget to drink adequate amounts of high-quality water.
You will take off your shoes and put on slippers to protect your feet from the salt. We also offer robes to protect your clothing if you'd like one.
We recommend putting away all technology, as it is sensitive to salt, and is likely to prevent you from relaxing.
We request that you do not use this equipment if you have one of the following contraindicated conditions. Risks are not limited to the following so please consult your physician if in any doubt:
- Current Fever
- Flu, cold or other infection
