What do I do once I’m in the room?
Our salt therapy rooms are a retreat from the world. The rooms are dark and lit with beautiful salt lamps which create a beautiful ambience. Lie back in our relaxing chairs and breathe normally. You can read, meditate, listen to music, sleep, draw or write if you wish. Reading lights are on all chairs. Health is only one of the reasons you’ll return.
We also have an area for children as well which they can play with toys or read a book. Instead of building sand castles, build salt castles. The kids corner is a playground that little ones will love to explore. Children and adult treatments are separate. Children will not be in adult treatment sessions.

Whatever happens for you is perfect and right for your body to heal.
