Due to its high value, salt was once used to pay the wages of Roman soldiers, a practice that gave rise to words such as salary and snacks such as wallet jerky. Inhale the mineral’s many benefits with today's Groupon: for $35, you get three 45-minute salt-room therapy sessions (a $165 value) at Beneveda Medical Group in Beverly Hills.
Visitors to Beneveda's salt room enter with wizened lungs and leave with breath-balloons bursting with praise for the center's practitioners and philosophy of comprehensive medicine. The restorative effects of breathing salinated oxygen were first observed by European salt miners, who noticed a marked improvement in the breathing of their canaries. According to Beneveda, salt-mine air is rich in negative ions, which it says can improve chronic ear, nose, and throat ailments; allergies; and overdrawn positive-ion balances. Three 45-minute sessions in Beneveda's therapeutic microclimate aim to alleviate symptoms of respiratory ailments and the consequences of maintaining a throat-length tar-luge track.
