What To Expect
What happens during a session?
During sessions, halogenerator grinds pharmaceutical salt to a fine dust that is dispersed into the room for you to inhale. The salt rooms are designed for relaxation so you will want to sit back in our zero-gravity chair and breathe deeply. The doors to the salt room will close and remain closed during the session for the guest experience and also to make sure salt particles do not leave the room. If a guest arrives late we are not able to open the doors to the salt room to allow them in.
What should you wear to your salt session?
You will want to wear comfortable clothing to your salt session. Please note that darker colored clothing may show salt, but it can easily be brushed off and will not harm your clothing. While we have fresh blankets for sessions, some people prefer to bring their own blanket as the room does get cool.
Guests have the option of either wearing booties over their shoes (provided by Relax), bringing clean white socks to wear, or going barefoot. Due to the purity of the salt, shoes cannot be worn in the room without booties on.
If coming in for a skin condition, you will want to try to expose this area as much as possible.
We encourage you to make an appointment, but walk-ins are welcome if there is available space. While there is no cancellation fee, we do ask that you are considerate of other guests wanting to book an appointment by giving us a 24-hour notice.
It is a common misconception that the time to try salt therapy is while you are actively sick. However, the best time to seek salt therapy is when you are healthy and using salt therapy for chronic illness or preventative treatment.
If you suspect that either you or your child are actively sick (or running a fever), please call to reschedule the appointment. Our ongoing goal is to maintain an environment of health and wellness. Once you or your child have been fever free for at least 24 hours you can schedule a new time for your appointment.
What should expect to happen during my treatment?
Salt sessions last 45 minutes and is in a room that is surrounded with Himalayan sea salt on the walls and covering the ground. During a session it is best to close your eyes and take deep cleansing breath. Himalayan salt crystals provide negative ions that enhance the salt therapy experience.
Will I be alone for my treatment?
Our salt rooms can accommodate up to eight people at a time. So each session can have anywhere from one to eight people.
Please contact us to book the salt room for a private event.
Is it safe for children to have salt therapy?
Yes, salt therapy is completely safe for children. Our children's salt therapy room is made for fun salt play time with beach toys.
*Parents are required to stay with their child and supervise them. There is no additional charge for one parent to attend with their child.
Is it safe to have salt therapy while pregnant?
Yes, it is completely safe and all natural to have salt therapy while pregnant. We do recommend always consulting with your physician prior to any new treatment. Many pregnant women find relief with respiratory or skin issues while pregnant and unable to take prescription medications. Salt therapy can also help boost the immune system.
Halotherapy is 100% natural, drug free, and safe. Post session some people have experienced a runny nose, slight cough, or chest tightness. This is usually due to mucus and toxins becoming dislodged in the body and working out of the body.
Smoking & Perfumes
We ask that anyone who is a smoker to please refrain from smoking prior to entering in the salt room. If you smell of smoke, you may be asked to reschedule. Relax is a smoke-free environment. The main reason we do not allow guests actively smelling of smoke is for our clients who have respiratory issues, like Asthma, COPD, or Cystic Fibrosis. The presence of the exhaled smoke or chemicals in it can trigger a reaction or an attack.
Please refrain from use of any perfumes or essential oils before coming to Relax. If you smell of heavy odors you will be asked to re-book,
Halotherapy should never replace any medication prescribed by your doctor.
Halotherapy should be avoided if you are running a fever, spitting up blood, or have any of the following: active tuberculosis, cardiac insufficiency, COPD in its third stage, bleed, alcohol or drug use, unstable hypertension, and acute stages of respiratory disease.
