THE MANY BENEFITS OF DRY SALT THERAPY
Learn more about the healthful benefits of Dry Salt Therapy produced by The Salt Therapy Association. STA was founded to provide resources, information, research and standards to support, promote and create awareness about salt therapy. Salt Therapy is 100% natural, non-invasive, and drug free; it is cumulative and studies have shown that 2-3 consecutive sessions can reduce symptoms. Everyone responds differently.
The Halotherapy Suite at Spa on The Avenue offers a unique dry salt therapy experience. The climate controlled Halotherapy Suite provides private seating in zero gravity chairs for up to 2 guests at a time.
During your stay, you will relax to calming music and drift away with guided meditations all while benefitting from the amazing natural powers of dry salt.
Salt Therapy is a safe, natural and drug-free way to treat your entire body to a well-deserved luxury. Our HALO GXPRO halogenerator heats and in turn dries the salt, causing it to become more kinetically
active. The halogenerator crushes the sodium chloride into micro-sized particles and disperses it into the air of our salt cave. Breathing and relaxing in this specially maintained environment is cleansing to the
body, supports respiratory health, eases breathing, improves lung function, relieves allergies and strengthens immune system responses. Salt is antiviral, antibacterial and antimicrobial. Salt also has a positive effect on skin and can alleviate stress, anxiety, fatigue and insomnia.
Salt therapy should be avoided during the acute, active and/or contagious stage of any illness. The following conditions are also contraindicative of Halotherapy: chronic kidney disease, high blood pressure, suspicion of cancer, cancer, fever, tuberculosis, coughing of blood, mucus and phlegm, cardiac insuffiency, all communicable diseases, use of oxygen tank and drug & alcohol intoxication. If you are pregnant, you should get clearance from your obstetrician before making your reservation.
Room temperatures range from 70-73 degrees. Food and drinks are not permitted in the Halotherapy Suite before, during or after your session. Please avoid wearing perfumes and scented creams or lotions before your session.
Stress, Anxiety & Fatigue
Salt rooms isolate the individual in a stress-free environment that provides healing on a variety of levels while allowing the body to reassert its natural healthy balance. The negative charge and high surface energy of dry salt particles empowers them to penetrate internal airways more deeply, bonding with positive ions and calming and relaxing internal muscles as the nervous system rebalances. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties reduce the body’s toxic load, giving relief to an overburdened immune system and the release of debris and inhaled particles is facilitated.
Snoring & Sleeping Problems
The multiple effects of Dry Salt Therapy on the body enable it to address sleeping issues with a variety of causes. Most basically, snoring and sleep apnea caused by obstructed air passages is relieved due to the antiemetic and anti-inflammatory properties of salt particles. Air passages are opened and widened, and spasm of inflamed irritated tissue and smooth muscles are modulated, so restful breathing can be achieved.
Psoriasis, Eczema & Acne
Dry Salt Therapy has been proven to have a multidimensional positive effect on various forms of dermatitis, including acute symptoms of acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Depositing on open skin areas, dry salt particles increase activity of skin ion channels, stimulating cell growth and regeneration. Dry salt particles balance skin pH as well as reducing harmful bacteria and inflammation.
When you come into contact with a particular allergen, your immune system’s reaction can inflame your skin, sinuses, airways or digestive system. Inflammation is reduced due to natural properties of the inhaled salt particles during a dry salt therapy session which also thin bronchial and nasal secretions. Improved drainage allows for reduction in contaminants that may trigger or prolong allergic episodes. Additionally, salt’s ability to absorb edema from swollen mucosa linings in the sinuses and respiratory tract opens airways to bring about quick relief of symptoms.
Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. Asthma can’t be cured but its symptoms can be controlled. Dry Salt Therapy consistently demonstrates a dramatic positive effect on asthma symptoms. Over a series of sessions, inhalation of dry salt aerosol will bring about the improvement of mucociliary clearance and decrease of bronchial inflammation, the decrease or elimination of pathogenic microorganisms, and a reduction of bronchial hyper-responsiveness. This translates into better lung function, fewer spasmodic attacks, and clearer air passages.
Ear infections frequently are painful because of inflammation and buildup of fluids in the middle ear. Dry Salt Therapy’s ability to reduce edema in passages and cavities not immediately accessible to other means of treatment make it the perfect solution for dealing with ear and sinus infections. It is perfectly safe and comfortable for children as well as adults and can bring not only relief in the short term, but lasting resistance to recurrence of such infections.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does salt therapy work?
Pharmaceutical grade, drug-free, salt is put into machines called Halo Generators. These machines heat, grind, and then disperse tiny salt particles into an enclosed room. These salt particles enter the respiratory system and start to break down mucous and pollutant build-up. Breathing in this air rids the lungs of bacteria and toxins allowing your airways to expand to help ease your breathing. More oxygen entering the blood stream allows for more cell regeneration and overall wellness.
Are there any side effects?
As with any health treatment, if you are currently taking any medication or have any health conditions, please consult with your doctor or health physician before trying HaloTherapy.
Clinical studies have shown that all patients "feel better" after a session. No side effects have been documented through testing other than the coughing or itchy throat and itchy eyes. That just means the salt is working by helping you expel the toxins or pollutants.
How many sessions are necessary?
The benefits of HaloTherapy are accumulative. Meaning, it works and continues to build on itself when practiced regularly. Individuals with chronic issues would see optimal results with 3-4 visits per week. Individuals who would like to incorporate salt therapy into their regular wellness routine can benefit with just 1-2 weekly salt sessions. Daily usage is fine if desired.
What results can you expect?
We do not claim to be a medical institute or medication substitute, but individuals suffering from allergies, asthma and other bronchial issues have seen amazing results in short periods of time. After treatments, you should feel a noticeable improvement in lung function and respiratory issues. As well as a relaxed state of mind and lowered stress. There have been many testimonials for severe skin issues such as psoriasis, acne, and eczema.
