Most of us would love to be surrounded by warm grains of sand and be able to breathe in the moist, salty air, enjoying the wet form of salt therapy we call a trip to the beach. The sound of the waves crashing against the shore and the birds singing in the distance contribute a sense of well-being. On the beach, everything in life seems great and care-free. Alas, we lead busy, modern lives, filled with obligations that prevent us from making the beach a more permanent destination. Those looking to remedy this cruel set of circumstances may consider looking into a salt room, which offers a dry counterpart to the wet form of salt therapy that’s found at the beach.
A salt room is a great way to enjoy the relaxing and nourishing effects of the beach without having to mark off the calendar and take a road trip. In a salt room, you will sometimes find softly illuminated pink and white salt bricks covering the walls that are gentle on the eyes. There are comfortable chairs to relax in while breathing in the salty air. This salty air is pumped into the room via a device called a halogenerator, which grounds, crushes, and disperses pure grade sodium chloride (salt).
In addition to being conducive to relaxation, salt rooms are a great way to boost health and well-being. As you experience a salt room session, you can simply take time to yourself and do some light-activity, much like what you might do on a beach. You could read a book, listen to music, or you could simply close your eyes and enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.
If you are feeling stressed about your home life, work, or anything in between, salt room therapy may be just what you need to help replenish your spirit. The atmosphere of a salt room is relaxing and peaceful and can help to boost your mood and restore your energy, leaving you poised to take on the rest of the day with a fresh mind. It’s like having a mini-vacation; providing a space where you can let go of the troubles of your life and enjoy the experience of simply being. Unplugging in this way for even a brief session can work wonders for both your body and mind.
