Since the 1800s, people have sought out salt caves for their healing properties. Few of those caves, however, have been equipped with cushioned lounge chairs and flat-screen TVs. At Sea Salt Therapy, patients relax in just amid luxury as they dig their toes into and fill their lungs with safe, naturally salty air. With each breath, patients inhale microparticles that holistically address asthma, seasonal allergies, sinusitis, and other respiratory ailments. Co-owner Angela Kassai, a severe allergy sufferer herself, was inspired to open the center after doing research on the treatment and learning of wellness success stories from salt rooms in Europe and LA.
At Thea skin hair body mind, caring therapists help clients cultivate beauty and health from the inside out. In addition to selling makeup and skincare products by CosMedix, Jane Iredale, Rene Furterer, and Société Clinical Skincare, staffers operate a salon and spa dedicated to rejuvenating hair, skin, and the spirit within. Here, clients can unwind among warm orange walls, lush pink curtains, ornate mirrors, and globally inspired tile work. Hair services range from cutting and coloring to exotic treatments such as Brazilian blowouts and Japanese thermal reconditioning, which both leave hair as smooth as a saxophone dipped in hot fudge. In addition to offering skincare services such as LED light therapy and microdermabrasion, spa staffers pamper bodies with nature-inspired body treatments such as sea-salt scrubs and Moroccan mud wraps.
Before opening OC Salt Therapy, Robert Condraschi spent sleepless nights listening to and worrying about the labored breathing of his 2-year-old son Constantin. After visiting dozens of doctors, all of whom offered different diagnoses for Constantin?s ailments, it became clear that surgery was the last viable treatment plan. Before agreeing to invasive measures, Robert and his son booked a trip to the Eastern European salt mines. Within days of basking in the therapeutic chamber, Constantin?s breathing grew steadier, and he slept through the night for the first time in years.
Now, OC Salt Therapy?s founders strive to spark similar recoveries in clients of all ages. They have coated three rooms from floor to ceiling in pure, untreated salt, and each room houses a halogenerator that disperses microscopic particles of salt through the air. In the adult room, clients recline on chaise lounges and listen to soothing music. In the children?s room, tykes can tinker with toys, help sentient salt shakers write letters to forlorn pepper grinders, or watch DVDs on flat-screen TVs as parents supervise through the glass door for kids 10 and up, or inside the room for those under 10.
It's easy to forget about the outside world inside the salt cave at Salt Oasis. Waterfalls bubble, fills the amber-colored space, and small salt pebbles massage the bottoms of your feet. But taking it easy is only part of the equation. The salty, negative-ion-rich air works to potentially relieve a host of health issues, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, and hypertension.
