What is Halotherapy?
Halotherapy is a centuries-old practice dating back to the 1800’s. A Polish doctor, Feliks Boczkowski, realized that salt miners were emerging from the salt mines with clear lungs and excellent health conditions. Since then, salt therapy is recognized as a safe, natural and complimentary form of health care throughout Western & Eastern Europe and is growing significantly in the U.S.
Halotherapy is now available all over the world due to modern technology. Special equipment, known as a Halogenerator, grinds pure pharmaceutical grade salt into microscopic particles and disperses it into a designated space such as a salt room.
At VIDA , the walls are built from illuminated Himalayan salt bricks that project highly beneficial negative ions. The Salt Room’s halo generator grinds and disperses a mist of salt in a specific concentration, which guests breathe during a relaxing 45-minute session. Salt Therapy is available by single session, multi-visit packages, as well as monthly memberships. VIDA's retail shop offers a range of products that include Himalayan Salt Lamps, natural soaps and bath salts, and many handmade accessories.
What to Expect
Scientific studies have found that pure salt is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and has the ability to remove airborne pathogens. When you breathe in microscopic salt particles, the salt penetrates deep into the respiratory system to absorb toxins, allergens, and foreign substances. This allows mucus to be expectorated in an effective, health-improving fashion.
It is recommended to wear comfortable and loose clothing. The salt room is a dry and somewhat cooler environment. Your skin and clothes may be covered in a thin layer of salt, but nothing significant if you are going back to work after your session. You will be asked to remove your shoes prior to entering the salt room in order to fully experience the detoxing benefits. Shoe covers, eye masks, and blankets are available for your use.
We play a guided breathwork meditation at first, followed by soothing binaural beats for the remainder of the session. Be aware that there will be a soft grinding sound while the Halogenerator is disbursing the salt into the room. You are welcome to bring earbuds if you are going to use your phone.
Halotherapy is recognized as a safe and effective wellness practice for preventive and restorative health care. It is natural, holistic, and does not have any negative side effects. It is safe for all ages and stages of life, including pregnancy. However, Halotherapy is not a medical treatment and does not offer a cure. Halotherapy is not recommended for people with contagious diseases, fever, open wounds, lung cancer, severe hypertension, mental disorders and active tuberculosis without consulting with your doctor first. If you are pregnant and/or have serious health concerns, please seek proper medical advice prior to trying dry salt therapy.
While some people experience immediate relief from allergy & respiratory discomforts, we recommend 3-5 sessions to start and maintain regular monthly schedule depending on the severity of your symptoms.
