SALT Chamber has been the leader in revolutionizing the salt therapy industry since 2012. We have acted as pioneers and innovators in the emergence of salt room therapy. We continue to devote our time to improving and expanding on the overall experience that a salt room offers.
We have brought the salt therapy room concept to over 2,500 facilities worldwide. This has truly been a game-changing investment for many businesses, spas, destination resorts, and medical practitioners alike. We help individuals and families add salt therapy rooms to their own homes, as well.
What Is A Salt Room?
A salt room, often referred to as a salt cave, is a unique yet rewarding concept. These rooms allow you to provide yourself and your guests with a natural, drug-free, holistic, touchless therapeutic spa and wellness experience that can help treat skin issues, as well as enhance mental wellness.
A SALT Chamber salt room incorporates the use of our SALT FX® Halogenerator. This machine, manufactured at a medical device facility, grinds, crushes, and disperses pure-grade sodium chloride as micron-sized salt particles.
Those salt particles can help treat respiratory system issues when inhaled. And, when particles from a halotherapy salt room are absorbed by your epidermis, they can help address skin conditions as well. A salt room delivers many health benefits to your mind and body.
Salt rooms also provide a generally relaxing and refreshing atmosphere. You can tap into that broad benefit by adding comfortable seating, soft lighting, and decor. Products that are also sometimes added to a salt room include:
- Himalayan Salt Décor (salt bricks or salt panels)
- Relaxing loungers
- Ambient lighting

Halogenerators For Salt Rooms
The halogenerator, or halotherapy machine, is known as the “heart and soul” of a salt room. A halogenerator provides dry salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, safely and effectively.
SALT Chamber offers the SALT FX® Pro for rooms up to 450 sq. ft. and the Multi SALT FX® for rooms up to 150 sq. ft. Our SALT FX® halogenerators are the only halogenerators that are UL Listed, CE Certified, comply with QS/ISO quality standards, and are made in a medical device facility.
A good halogenerator ensures that the salt released in the air in the salt room is released in perfect, micron-sized particles and at optimal salt concentration levels. This guarantees that the full force of benefits achieved from therapeutic salt therapy is reached.
