Salt therapy is the therapeutic use of salt that helps heal your body. When I first heard about Salt therapy, I didn’t think it would work – especially after one visit. I wanted to try it regardless. I made an appointment at Salt Escape located in West Plano and anxiously waited for my appointed.
I didn’t know what to expect, all I knew is that I would be laying in a room with a bunch of salt. On the day of my appointment, I stepped inside Salt Escape and felt immediately relaxed. The shop is laid out like a spa, once you sign in you will be given some paperwork to fill out and you’re ready to go. Salt appointments start every hour on the hour.
What is Salt Therapy?
You will be in the salt therapy room with other people. Each of you will have a zero gravity chair to sit back and relax in. Every appointment is 45 minutes long so you have plenty of time to take a snooze or catch up on your favorite gossip magazine. The lights are dimmed and the salt is pushed into the room. Salt rooms are covered ceiling to floor in a salt application and utilize a halogenerator to crush pharmaceutical grade salt into small particles for inhalation to create the desired microclimate. After the halogenerator has been going for about 10 minutes you can start to taste the salt but the room is completely clear. You simply sit in the halochamber and inhale microscopic particles of salt. Easy, breezy!
What are the benefits of Salt Therapy?
Salt Therapy can be used for many improvements to your body. Some common symptoms that can be improved by Salt Therapy are Allergies, Asthma, Bronchitis, Cold/Flu, Cystic Fibrosis, Dermatitis, Ear Infection, Eczema, Emphysema, Psoriasis, Rhinitis and Sinusitis. 45 minutes in the salt room is equivalent to you spending three days at the beach.
I highly recommend giving it a try. After my session, I felt completely relaxed and slept like a baby (which is a BIG thing, because I never sleep). I’m looking forward to giving it another try. Who wants to join me for a session?
My Salt Therapy session was at Salt Escape located off of the Dallas North Tollway and Park in West Plano. A single session of Salt Therapy costs $45 or you can become a member and get each session cheaper. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
