Respira Salt Wellness Center soothes 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 rooms clothed from ceiling to floor in mineral salt that fosters inflammatory relief and risk-free wintertime unicycling. The treatment fills the air with a mist of crushed salt particles that floats into the deepest crevices of the lungs, where it may help to relieve allergies, boost immunity, and clear congested air ducts of mucous and other icky things. To ensure optimal healing, each sterile salt nest contains well-controlled levels of humidity, heat, 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.
For more exclusive sodium soaks, 45-minute rentals of a private salt room dissolve tension in salty get-togethers of up to four guests, be they close friends or bland french fries.
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.
