Service Description
In today’s world, many people are experiencing respiratory issues as well as other conditions caused by pollution, smog, airborne diseases, pollens and other toxins in the air. Come take a break from all of that and relax in the Private Salt Room at A to Zen.

You’ll lie back on a comfortable, heated massage table, surrounded by gorgeous Himalayan salt tiles, and breathe in the salt-infused air. You may choose to read, meditate or nap while listening to soft, soothing music in your own private salt chamber. You can also choose to enhance the experience by adding the use of our Infrared Jade Mat or Body Wrap during your session – or even getting a massage – for an additional fee.

Who Benefits From Salt Therapy?
Halotherapy benefits adults and children. It is natural and safe and there are no side effects. Salt Therapy does not claim to be a medical treatment, nor a substitution for medicine – and does not offer a cure to any specific ailments. However, a majority of people who visit salt rooms on a regular basis find relief from a variety of respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, the common cold, bronchitis, sinusitis, COPD, cystic fibrosis, ear infections, smoker’s cough and more. Dry salt therapy is also great for people who suffer from skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne and more.

For general respiratory health, visiting the Salt Room at A to Zen will improve your lung capacity, boost your body’s own healing abilities and immune system while helping you relax and improve your sleep at night.

Since salt therapy is beneficial for overall general wellness by removing the toxicity from the respiratory system, you do not need to have any specific conditions to enjoy it. This type of treatment is an excellent way to cleanse and detox the lungs and invigorate the whole body with increased lung capacity and oxygen intake.

Is There Anyone Who Shouldn't Use Salt Therapy?
Salt Therapy is not recommended for people who are intoxicated, use an oxygen tank or those who suffer from contagious diseases, fever, open wounds, Stage 3 COPD, cancer, severe or uncontrolled hypertension, acute kidney disease, cardiac insufficiency, severe heart conditions, mental disorders and active tuberculosis. Pregnant women should consult their doctor before using Salt Therapy.

To keep the Salt Room environment enjoyable for all patrons, we do not allow smokers to utilize this service at this time. Unfortunately, the habit of smoking will quickly negate the positive effects of using the salt room. We don’t want to charge anyone for a service that will not be of any true benefit!

However, once you have chosen to quit smoking for good, and have not smoked for at least 2-3 weeks, we’d love for you to get started with Salt Room Sessions. (Note: If you need help quitting smoking, ask us about Acupuncture!)

Is Salt Therapy Okay for Children?
We are happy to offer Salt Therapy Services to pre-teens starting at age 12, with parental consent. Children, in fact, respond to Salt Therapy even more quickly than do adults. If your child has been on medications for awhile, but the treatment outcome is not satisfactory, it is worth trying Salt Therapy. Note: At this time, Salt Therapy Services are not available at A to Zen for younger children as it would be disruptive to our spa environment.

Can I Bring Something To Drink?
Yes. Bottled water is allowed in the salt room and is available if you do not have your own.
Is Salt Therapy Safe?
Salt is antibacterial and antimicrobial. Salt Therapy is 100% natural, safe, and drug-free, providing effective long-term relief. It can be used as a complementary treatment to prescribed medications or as a sole treatment. When Salt Therapy is used as a complementary treatment, it can increase the effectiveness and decrease the amount of prescribed medications.
Are There Side Effects?
A dry or itchy throat and increased coughing are quite common after your first session. This is a natural part of the clearing process of the respiratory system. You may also notice slight skin irritation, throat tickle (gargling with water resolves this) and minor eye irritation (use eye drops.)
How Is Dry Salt Better Than Saline Treatments (Neti Pots, Saline Sprays, Etc.)?
Dry salt is more effective then moist salt (saline). Dry salt is very high in negative ions. The inner surfaces of your airways are positively charged and therefore draw the dry salt into the airways where it is most beneficial. Also, saline is known to cause some bronchial hyperactivity. You also ingest less salt during a 30 minute Salt Therapy session while inhaling moist sodium chloride aerosol (saline). Lastly, people have been known to contract serious infections from non sterile water used in moist saline therapies. This cannot occur with dry salt aerosol.
