Michigan’s only salt-therapy center, Salinair was founded after the owners witnessed improvement in their own son’s asthma following salt-room treatments. Salt therapy, or halotherapy, sprays precise levels of salt microparticles through the air in a fine mist, mimicking the atmosphere of European salt caves which are thought to have to relieved respiratory, sinus, and skin conditions since the 19th century. Noninvasive, natural, and drug-free, salt-room treatments are said to benefit both children and adults. The salty air may help clear lungs of bacteria, allergens, and urges to spontaneously recite the Magna Carta. During each session, patients inhale no more than 45 milligrams of sodium chloride, a minute amount compared to the average daily consumption of table salt (4–5 grams).
Patients can recline in relaxing lounge chairs while soaking up the benefits. Blanketed in salt crystals, the walls sparkle from floor to ceiling, and soothing low lights keep the warm, dry rooms as calming as possible. For those opting for a family session, games and toys wait to entertain children and neglected peppercorns.
Salinair Salt Room
Iosif and Ella Meluta’s son, Alex, was diagnosed with asthma when he was 6 years old. To combat the disease, the Melutas sought out the therapeutic effects of salty air, taking him on seaside vacations, visiting salt rooms throughout the United States and Canada, and traveling to Eastern Europe’s salt mines. Eventually, Iosif and Ella created a salt-infused microclimate right in the Detroit area, the Salinair Salt Room, which Alex could incorporate into his everyday life. Nowadays, thanks to regular salt-room sessions, Alex is pursuing his dream of playing pro tennis.
The salt room’s healing properties are not just available to Alex. Clients of all ages who are struggling with conditions such as asthma, common colds, and stress can lounge in its zero-gravity chairs as they nap or surf the web during halotherapy. The therapy simply entails breathing the room’s air, which is suffused with salt microparticles and negative ions that soothe respiratory systems. As sessions unfold, adults can enjoy the relaxing effects of dimmed colored lights and music, and kids can play with Alex and his stash of toys.
