We visited somewhere completely different and off our normal path. We went to a salt spa. Wow, it was so neat and we learned so much! This is an asthma suffer’s dream come true! Having asthma, I can attest to this.
Sharon Wallace is the owner of NaCl Salt Spa. They are located at 646 Bodey Circle, Urbana, OH 43078. Sharon was introduced to Halotherapy when a friend invited her to a session to help with her asthma. She said that after only 10 minutes in the session she could feel a difference and was able to breathe deeper. She said after that session all she could do was think about opening up her own Halotherapy Spa. She opened NaCl Salt Spa in June 2017. She said the salt therapy has greatly improved her asthma symptoms!
Halotherapy is the inhaling of kinetically activated pure dry salt particles. Dry salt has been found to be antibacterial and super absorbent. These micro sized salt particles travel deep into the respiratory system and absorb excess moisture, remove allergens, toxins and foreign substances. They also break up stagnated mucus, restore the function of cilia and, last but not least, widen the airways.
Halotherapy has been used for centuries in salt caves in Europe as a natural, safe alternative therapy for respiratory and skin conditions.
At the NaCl Salt Spa you will find private room and group rooms. You can come relax and breathe in the Himalayan salt by yourself or come with friends. These rooms were so relaxing! You truly just wanted to spend the day there!
The kid’s room was bright and cheery. It even had a salt beach and shovels, pails, and other fun toys. Mom and Dad and sit at the beach and relax while their children play and receive salt therapy. What a fun way to receive relief!
The sessions are 45 minutes long whether in a private, group, or children’s room. They have detoxing foot domes that you place your feet on and they help pull toxins out of your body. Something we all need!
Along with helping relieve asthma symptoms, Halotherapy is great for bronchitis, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis, sinus infections, cold/flu, allergies and other respiratory type issues. It also is helpful for eczema, acne, dermatitis and stress/fatigue. There are many other benefits that are too numerous to name.
The NaCl Salt Spa offers massage and yoga using salt therapy.
Active dry salt therapy is simple to understand. There are 4 primary characteristics of pure salt:
. Salt is super absorbent
. Salt is anti-bacterial and antiviral
. Salt is anti-inflammatory
. Salt acts as an expectorant
NaCl Salt Spa also offers a huge assortment of Himalayan crystal salt lamps. You can purchase these to take home and put in your house. So many pretty shapes and sizes. The glow from them is just so relaxing! More importantly than just being relaxing, they produce negative ions naturally. Negative ions are known to help alleviate symptoms caused by allergies, sleep disorders, migraine headaches and depression. Negative ions help alleviate common indoor air pollutants such as dust, mildew, humidity and electromagnetic fields from tvs, computers and other electronic devices.
The care of Himalayan crystal salt lamps is very easy! Occasionally wipe with a dry or slightly damp cloth if needed. Avoid exposing lamps to high humidity or rain. It is that easy!
Edible salts and bath salts can also be found at the spa. All natural Himalayan bath soaps are another item they carry.
NaCl Salt Spa offers after hour private parties. These parties can include a variety of options including a combination of Halotherapy, yoga, massage, and foot domes. A great idea for a bridal party, spa party, or just a girls get together. How relaxing would this be? 🙂

Have an awesome day!
