Salt Therapy Business: Worth Its Weight

The Salt Therapy Business is growing significantly. A few years ago, there were just a handful of facilities offering salt therapy throughout the United States and Canada. Salt therapy franchises were just starting to take hold.

Today, there are over 3,000 facilities offering salt therapy, whether as a stand-alone salt therapy center or as an add-on to an existing business or concept. The salt therapy business plan is proving fruitful for many companies.

SpaFinder, along with other industry experts and analysts, accurately predicted that Salt Therapy was going to be a top 5 growing trend.  The Salt Therapy business as a whole is still in its early stages of growth in North America, but it’s certainly growing. 

At the same time, salt therapy has been an established and successful therapy for the past few decades in other countries. It’s been used to create such things as adult and children’s salt rooms as well as salt rooms and salt caves installed in spas, wellness centers, fitness clubs, hotels, destination resorts, senior living facilities and cruise ships.
