Clients in Salt Spot’s individual treatment chambers inhale salt-infused air said to help treat nasal congestion, asthma, and skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis. After a five-minute preparation period, each client enters the salt cocoon—a small, contained room whose halogenerator crushes pharmaceutical-grade salt into breathable aerosol particles. Inside the lungs, the particles work to decrease inflammation and clear mucus, helping to reduce the symptoms of myriad ailments from allergies to bland chicken dishes. Those seeking to treat skin conditions such as acne may also choose to shed their clothes to let the salt penetrate affected skin. After 20 minutes in the chamber, clients have five minutes to rub sodium-free pretzels on the walls and exit the cocoon. For maximum results, a series of two or three treatments per week for eight weeks is recommended.
Salt Spot has taken halotherapy a long way from its roots as a healing tradition of antiquity. While the ancient Greeks had to journey to dark, subterranean salt mines to take in therapeutic breaths and season their french fries, Salt Spot's patrons reap the benefits of sodium-rich air from the comfort of salt cocoons. From a single tablespoon of pharmaceutical-grade salt, the spa's private pods generate a naturally anti-inflammatory and antifungal mist that seeps through the pores and respiratory systems of its occupant to clarify the skin and ease breathing.
