Salt Therapy in The Villages FAQ

How does it work?

Pure “dry” sodium chloride is heated and ground up in a machine called a halogenerator. The micro-sized crushed salt particles are then dispersed into the air in an enclosed environment. These particles of fine salt penetrate deep within the respiratory system and work to remove mucous build up and eliminate bacteria and toxins. This unique process helps open and expand the constricted airways allowing individuals to breathe easier and more clearly. Dry Salt Therapy also provides amazing skin rejuvenating benefits when the epidermis is exposed during treatment.

Halotherapy is recognized as a safe and effective practice for preventive and restorative health care. It is not a medical treatment, however in some countries it is covered by their Government’s Health Care system and by healthcare insurance companies.There are many clinical studies and research about the health benefits of salt therapy. We do not recommend salt therapy for people with contagious diseases, fever, open wounds, cancer, severe hypertension, mental disorders and active tuberculosis. Pregnant women should consult their doctor before using halotherapy.  Anyone with serious health concerns needs to seek proper medical advice and care.

When should it be avoided?
Salt therapy is known as a safe and natural treatment, clients who have any serious health conditions or women who are pregnant should always seek proper medical advice from a doctor first. Halotherapy is not recommended for people who have the following conditions.
  • Infections associated with a fever
  • Contagious diseases
  • Cancer
  • Tuberculosis
  • Cardiac disease patients
  • Acute respiratory disease
  • Severe hypertension
  • Chronic obstructive lung diseases
  • Intoxication
What type of salt is used?
99.99% pure sodium chloride (Pharmaceutical grade salt). It contains no fillers or caking agents. It does come from a natural source and it is naturally processed to remove all of its impurities. It’s the same salt that hospitals use and is the same type of salt that has been used to conduct researches. We do not recommend Himalayan or sea salt as it is not stripped of all the impurities. There could be dirt, clay or some type of debris that could be harmful to the lungs. It’s very healthy for the digestive system but not for the respiratory system.
How many sessions/times a week is necessary?
Salt therapy offers the best results when practiced regularly. The benefits are accumulative where consistency and frequency is the key. People with chronic issues will benefit greatly if visiting salt rooms at least 3-4 times a week. Those who are looking to incorporate Salt Therapy into their regular wellness routine would benefit from a weekly session. If desired, salt therapy can be safely used on a daily bases.
What is the treatment duration per session?
Since salt cabins and salt booths are more effective than large salt rooms, the average session is 35 minutes.
What results can clients expect?
Many clients who have asthma, allergies and other bronchial issues have seen some amazing results in a short period of time. Breathing became easier; more energy was experienced and just an overall better quality of life. Now we don’t make any medical claims about Dry Salt Therapy but after receiving treatments patient’s respiratory issues and lung function have vastly improved. In addition, those who have severe skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema or acne have also had incredible improvements in the health of their skin.
What will I experience when I sit in the salt cabin?
Salt cabins provide a soothing and tranquil environment. It’s a place where one can sit back and experience the salt treatment in a very peaceful and non-stressful setting. People listen to music, meditate or nap if they want to.
What is reiki?
Reiki comes from the Japanese and means “Universal Life Energy”, it is not a sect or a religion or a philosophy, all beings, no matter what their definition of God may have access to it. Reiki and other subtle healing energies are valuable tools for anyone who wants to improve in health, in personal matters or the need to precipitate their emotional, mental or spiritual evolution.
How can Reiki help me?
Reiki can help relieve suffering, be it physical, emotional, mental, spiritual. This means that Reiki can heal. This statement is not a guarantee or a promise that someone will be relieved of any indisposition with just one or multiple Reiki treatments.
How does Reiki work?
Reiki treatment increases the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It increases the vitality and energy, the functions of the body, in the mind, emotions, essence, spirit and aura. Reiki treatment releases blocked energy and promotes relaxation and reduces stress. The energy of Reiki has an innate intelligence and goes wherever it needs the body and the aura. It helps cleanse the body of energetic and physical toxins, increases its power over time, increases energy, intuition, meditation and spiritual evolution.
