Restore body and mind in our therapeutic salt room

In just 45 minutes, no longer than a lunch hour, you can breathe easier, feel softer skin, and enjoy greater wellbeing. Our therapeutic salt room is made out of aerosolized salt, which replicates the environment of natural salt caves containing Dead Sea salt.

By breathing the salt-saturated air while you sit back and relax, your body will be relieved and restored through the absorption of invigorating micro-particles. Absorbed deep within the lungs, microscopic salt crystals reduce swelling in lung tissue and neutralize allergens and harmful bacteria. The result of salt therapy, or halotherapy, in Jacksonville is easier breathing and improved oxygenation in the body. More than a relaxing experience, salt therapy can be used for the safe, effective treatment of several conditions, including:
  • Asthma, even severe
  • Allergies
  • Acne
  • Bronchitis
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • COPD
  • Cold and flu
  • Chronic illnesses of the ear, nose, and throat
  • Dermatitis
  • Emphysema
  • Eczema
  • Ear infections
  • Pneumonia
  • Psoriasis
  • Rosacea
  • Rhinitis
  • Stress and chronic fatigue
  • Snoring
  • Smoker’s cough
  • Sinusitis
  • Sinus infections
What is salt therapy? Salt therapy, or halotherapy, is a drug-free, 100 percent natural therapy used in ancient Greece when it was discovered that time in salt mines and caves had a positive influence on respiratory health. Formal halotherapy was developed as a natural treatment in Russia in 1982. Since that time, salt therapy has been used in various European countries as well as in Canada. Now, it is catching on in the States.

Unique machinery has been developed by scientists and researchers well versed in the effects of this natural therapy. This machinery replicates the microclimate of the salt cave. The walls of the salt therapy room are covered in salt, with the microclimate controlled by a hologenerator, which causes the air to become saturated with tiny particles of ionized dry salt. In the salt room, the air remains dry and aseptic properties naturally exist, aiding in the body’s natural elimination of toxins.

There is a reason halotherapy is becoming increasingly popular in the Jacksonville area. Call 904-474-3777 to schedule your visit today.
