Salt Rooms are Great for Mental Health

Salt Rooms are Great for Mental Health

July 31 2022

There’s great news out there about an effective treatment that our clients are crazy about here at The Glam Room. If you’ve never tried it before, you’ll want to experience our Salt Room’s halotherapy benefits for your body and your mental health!

What is a salt room?

A salt room is a relaxing, controlled-atmosphere room where you can experience the benefits of Himalayan sea salt for your body and mind. It’s a comfortable area where you relax in a lounge chair and enjoy soothing music next to a dimly lit salt wall. Our effective fanning system activates the salt and provides you with an amazing relaxing atmosphere for the duration of your therapy session. All you have to do is relax!

How does a salt room work?

Our salt room lets you relax in a controlled, comfortable environment while the detoxifying effects of the salt wall work on a range of issues, from physical to mental health. 

Known as halotherapy (from the Greek word that means ‘salt’ combined with ‘therapy’), salt therapy has been used for centuries to detox the body and create a state of optimal wellness. It was first discovered in the twelfth century, but more recently it was observed how healthy and vibrant salt mine workers became. Ongoing research continues to show that halotherapy is beneficial for your health. 

Our Salt Room provides a temperature and humidity-controlled environment that emulates those salt caverns for the most effective salt activation.

What are the benefits of halotherapy?

Halotherapy is especially useful for detoxifying the lungs and airways because it helps remove mucus that causes congestion. It is also known for its:

  • Antibacterial action to prevent infections
  • Anti-inflammatory properties
  • Immunity-boosting action
  • Anti-allergic properties

With this wide range of helpful benefits, halotherapy can help a variety of issues like lung and throat problems, allergies, coughs and colds, sinus issues, tonsilitis, cystic fibrosis, and more. 

What about the mental health benefits of salt therapy?

Yes, our Salt Room therapy here at The Glam Room is also an excellent way to improve your mental wellbeing. The focus of every halotherapy session is relaxation and deep breathing, something we often forget to pay attention to in our day-to-day lives. 

Setting aside the time to meditate, relax, and listen to soft music in a controlled environment is the perfect way to give your mind an escape from the stress of everyday life. Regular visits to the Salt Room at The Glam Room are a perfect way to boost your mental health. 

How long does it take?

Our Salt Room sessions last about 45 minutes. During that time, you’ll relax in the comfortable lounge chair and focus on relaxation and deep breathing. You can even read a relaxing book or take a nap – either way, you’ll be in a deep state of relaxation.

After the session is complete, the room fans will stop, indicating that your session is over. 

How do I prepare for a Salt Room treatment?

You don’t have to do anything special to enjoy the benefits of the Salt Room. Just plan on arriving in loose, comfortable clothing. It’s also a good idea to drink plenty of fresh, purified water before and after your session for optimal hydration and detoxification.

We’ll provide shoe coverings to protect the effectiveness of the salt room, and all you have to do is relax!

What kind of results can I expect from the Salt Room?

The results of halotherapy vary based on your issues of concern and treatment goals. If you’ve been experiencing congestion, you’ll probably find that the Salt Room treatment has loosened up the congestion and made your coughs more effective, reducing coughing overall. Many of our clients have experienced improvements in their mind and body with regular Salt Room therapy sessions. 

For the best results for your mental health, be sure to schedule your sessions at regular intervals to give you a constant refresh of soothing, relaxing halotherapy.
