Respira Salt Wellness Center soothes laid-up lungs with salt-therapy treatments, aided by a welcoming staff of saltologists. Based on speliotherapy, the therapeutic use of salt caves, Respira offers 45-minute halotherapy treatments in relaxing adult rooms and a fun children’s playroom, each clothed from ceiling to floor in mineral salt. A sprinkling mist of crushed salt particles floats through the air and into the deepest crevices of the lungs, where it may help to relieve allergies, boost immunity, and clear congested airways of mucous and hidden show-tune mix tapes. To ensure optimal healing, each sterile nurturing nest is a controlled environment of humidity, temperature, and concentration of salt. Adults can kick up heels on any of the zero-gravity loungers while relaxing with a magazine or reciting the list of presidential house pets in alphabetical order.
Although adults have long-standing familiarity with the benefits of salt thanks to years of experience devouring pretzels, younger members of society need ushering into the beneficial world of sodium chloride. Kids 10 years old and younger can frolic through Respira’s salt-covered floors, enjoying possible symptom relief from asthma, ear infections, and frequent colds while playing with toys, reading books, and listening to music. Many participants experience relief after one session, but a series of 12–15 sessions is recommended for optimum results.
Be aware that Respira Salt Wellness Center sometimes offers a free session to new customers.

Respira Salt Wellness Center
Within the salt caves at Respira Salt Wellness Center are three salt rooms: one for children, and two for adults. In the children’s room, kids up to 10 years old play with toys like they're at a beach made of salt. Parents observe as children take in the salt-infused air, helping mitigate sinus inflammation, congestion, and allergies. In the adult rooms, clients sit back on recliners, listen to music, and relax as a dry mist of rich salt minerals helps clear the airways. In addition to salt therapy sessions, the center also offers other restorative services inside the salt rooms, including Swedish, deep tissue, and Thai massages, reiki treatments, and guided meditation. Their private yoga sessions combine slow stretches and deep breaths with modified poses such as downward-facing sugar cube. Respira Salt Wellness Center also sells Himalayan salt lamps and Dead Sea skin care products.
