Alantra Spa's salt room capitalizes on the mineral's curative properties by intertwining ancient and modern modes of healing. During each one-hour session in the salt chamber, patrons recline in Lafuma zero-gravity chairs as serene music tests its buoyancy in salinated air. Halotherapy, the science of salt therapy, may improve symptoms of conditions including bronchitis, arthritis, acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Modeled in the image of the Himalayan Mountains, Alantra Spa's salt room boasts sodium-stucco walls, dim lighting, and salt crystals shaped like snowboarding sherpas.
It can be tough to find a decent cup of tea when you're climbing in the Himalayas. But Alantra Spa has created the next-best thing by selling teas near its salt room. After a calming session in the salty, mountain-like air—which can help alleviate respiratory and skin problems—guests can take home tea to indulge in a piping mug of mango rose or chocolate chai at home.
The tea is one of the touches that highlights Alantra's holistic view on wellness. The staff aims to lead clients toward both physical and mental serenity, whether they're administering an Aveda facial or leading a guided meditation session. During massages, they can implement deep-tissue techniques for chronic soreness, or use the focused touch of acupressure to realign the body's energy meridians, which can promote healing and recharge the car battery behind your heart. For long-term health and comfort, registered dietitians are also onsite to customize food plans around different lifestyles.
