Which service should I do first?
This depends on the symptoms you are experiencing.  If you have respiratory issues, either the main room or the Salt Booth are best for this.  Both spaces have the exact treatment.  The only real difference between the two is the time, 45min vs 20min.
If you have more pain and inflammation happening, then the heated salt bed or the pulsed light therapy are best.  Both help to reduce inflammation and pain while leaving you very relaxed.  You are staying dressed for either of these services.
What is the difference between a salt room and salt bed? 
The main difference is that the salt bed does not have a generator in that room crushing salt and pushing it into the air.  The salt room is great for respiratory issues and the bed is best for inflammation, aches  and pains along with loosening muscles.
 
What do I wear?
You stay dressed in everything we do here.  We just ask that you remove your shoes.  You want to be comfortable.
 
What should I expect to experience in a Salt Room or Booth?
The main salt room and the salt booth are the identical treatment.  Both spaces have a generator that is crushing salt and pushing it into the air.  In these treatments you are breathing in micro-particles of salt to help open your airways, breathe easier and alleviate your symptoms.
 
What should I expect to experience on the Salt Bed?
The salt bed is a wonderful treat.  You stay dressed, step up and lay back on our heated salt bed.  The bed is warmed to close to 75 degrees. It has a micro-massage to it, which you won't necessarily feel.  But when you get off the salt bed you will feel relaxed and rejuvenated.  This treatment is great for pulling inflammation from the body, aches and pains as well as loosening the muscles.
 
What are the side effects?
Salt therapy is very safe.  If you can go to the beach, you can do salt therapy.  Obviously, if you are being treated by a physician for something, you should always check with your doctor.  The side effects/benefits some have encountered are some coughing (which is the salt loosening of mucus), and nasal drip.  Some have noted that they slept better that night and were more relaxed.
How often should I visit?
This depends on whether you have something chronic or acute.  If you have an acute situation 2-3 times back to back should subside your symptoms.  If you are dealing with a chronic issue, your best option is to do a one month unlimited package. This gives you the opportunity to come as much as possible and then be able to back into your maintenance routine to keep symptoms at bay.
Is salt therapy safe for children?
Salt Therapy is safe for children.  We have a kids room for kids 12 and under.   This space has toys and coloring and other games to keep them occupied.  There is no food or liquids allowed in this room.  Also, no electronics are to be brought into the room.
 
Is salt therapy safe for pregnant women? 
Yes, salt therapy is safe during pregnancy.  As with anything during pregnancy, you should always speak to your doctor before starting treatments.

Medical studies in Europe have proven that Salt therapy is cumulative and found that session 2-3 times a week can help to manage chronic respiratory ailments and reduce the intake of medications.  Everyone responds differently, some very quickly and others take a little longer.  Always listen to what your body is telling you.  Due to the nature of salt therapy, any acute ailments like coughs, colds & sinus, back to back sessions is the best and quickest way to heal.  The wonderful thing about salt therapy is it's safe and it works.
