In Salt Chalet's private treatment rooms, sea salt—known for its ability to balance out the body's positively charged ions—fills the air and coats the walls, floor, and ceiling, glittering under soft, ambient lights. As clients relax in lounge chairs or atop massage tables, briny granules flutter through their lungs and waft across their skin—a holistic process known as halotherapy, which recreates the unique microclimate of the world's salt caves away from their bat-shaped novelty shakers. As the chalet's medical director, Dr. Thom Lobe, proclaims, salt rooms can help alleviate everything from allergies and chronic respiratory illnesses to skin disorders, infections, and difficulties sleeping.
