Salt Meditation Room

The Ultimate Checklist For Your Salt Meditation Room

Halotherapy, commonly referred to as dry salt therapy, consists of sitting in a salt room breathing in air filled with micron-sized salt particles. The salt air is generated and dispersed by a SALT FX® halogenerator, the device that grinds and crushes pure-grade sodium chloride into those particles.

Halogenerators are essential for providing a safe and effective salt therapy room. In addition to generating the salt air, they also regulate the salt aerosol and concentration levels by working in conjunction with the HVAC system.

On their own, salt meditation rooms (with halogenerators) offer an opportunity for your clients to experience whole mind and body mending. 

Salt Therapy and Meditation

Mindful meditation is one of the most widely practiced methods of self-development and has been shown to offer numerous benefits to our daily lives. With only a little time each day, mindful meditation can help decrease cortisol levels in the body, reducing stress levels and providing mental clarity.

Halotherapy pairs well with meditation, allowing your clients to sit quietly with their thoughts as they breathe in the salty air. The salt-infused rooms provide an ideal space to help promote respiratory health, alleviate allergies, relieve skin issues, and improve mental health.

You can enhance your clients’ experience by incorporating additional features that improve the aesthetics and boost overall benefits. To that end, we’ve put together this ultimate checklist for your salt meditation room to enrich your client’s meditative experience and help them feel even more refreshed.

5 Ways to Enhance Your Salt Meditation Room

#1 Salt Wall Variations

While the halogenerator does most of the heavy lifting when differentiating between a typical meditation room and a salt meditation room, some facilities choose to include Himalayan salt bricks as well. 

If your budget allows, consider covering one or more walls in Himalayan salt bricks or salt panels. They can improve the visual aesthetics of the room as well as provide a warm glow for added ambiance.

Creating the look and feel of a real salt cave using Himalayan salt decor (salt bricks or salt panels) enhances the visual appeal of your salt meditation room. SALT Chamber works with our clients to maximize their space and revenue-generating capacity.

#2 Flooring Types

The type of floor in your halotherapy treatment room is important. We often overlook this consideration since most spa treatments are unaffected by the room’s flooring. Your salt meditation room can have whatever type of flooring you want, including wood, tile, laminate, conventional or salt bricks, or stone. 

The most popular choice for commercial salt rooms is a thick layer of loose salt, resembling sand at the beach. Having a salt floor does not add to the health benefits of the salt therapy room, so it’s chosen mostly for the aesthetic. 

Some facilities that opt for Himalayan salt bricks for the floor add a heated flooring system. The obvious benefit is that the system will gently warm the bricks, which is great for your clients since shoes aren’t typically worn during treatment.

#3 Lighting Considerations

Depending on how your salt meditation room is set up, you may not be able to rely on natural lighting to illuminate the room. Lighting should support the ambiance and promote further relaxation. 

Salt room lighting should never be glaring or make your clients feel like they’re being interrogated. At all costs, avoid fluorescent lighting or stark white lights, which can cause headaches or dizziness. Harsh lighting can also distract from the healing environment.

Select lighting that will give off a warm, gentle glow. Himalayan salt lamps are a popular option. For a more informal, beach-like atmosphere, try LED tube lighting or festive string lights. If you use salt bricks for your walls, you can choose to backlight one or more of them to create an inviting glow. 

#4 Comfortable Seating

What good is a calm, relaxing environment designed for restoration if your clients are physically uncomfortable during treatment? Completing the salt meditation room means providing nice and cozy seating options for your guests.

The seating you choose will depend on the size of your salt meditation room. You can choose from a variety of seating options:

  • Zero gravity chairs
  • Recliners
  • Lounge chairs
  • Adirondack chairs
  • Salt beds

If you opt for a small space or SALT Booth®, you may only have room for a small bench, stool, or meditation cushion. Any of these can help your clients’ bodies to de-stress. Sitting in comfortable chairs encourages mental and physical relaxation and promotes a healing environment.

#5 Sound Therapy

Music can relax the mind and calm the body while cutting out unwanted noise and minimizing external distractions. This is key for meditation as well as healing. In a private meditation room, individuals may choose to listen to a guided meditation piece on their phone or tablet.

In a salt meditation room, this can be classical or instrumental music that contributes to a calm environment. It may even be beneficial to cultivate a playlist with tracks specifically created for meditation that include bells or gongs. 

Whether your clients are seeking a reprieve from the fast pace of their daily lives or pursuing light or deep meditation, choosing the right music can help them achieve their goals.

What’s most important to remember is that salt particles and the humidity in the salt therapy room do not mix well with electronics. This means you’ll have to set up audio outside of the room with speakers built into the walls.
