Taking wellness to another level, halotherapy—a.k.a. salt therapy—remains a top spa trend.


Salt therapy is similar to spending time in the salty sea air, which offers many more benefits than just relaxation on the beach.


In a recently published article entitled, “Halotherapy: Treat Your Clients to the Benefits of Salt,” author and expert, Ann Brown, writes:


“I’ve found one type of treatment that keeps my guests coming back for more: salt therapy, also called halotherapy,” adding that with salt you can offer more benefits to clients while improving your bottom line.


“As a spa director, I had more  to consider than just creating a stress-free environment where people can come to relax and have a good massage. Clients want more opportunities to improve their overall health and wellness in the form of added benefits from their spa experience,” she writes.


The benefits of salt therapy are wide-ranging. Salt levels affect our cell activity, energy and blood sugar levels. A natural disinfectant, salt is antimicrobial, and antibacterial.

“An easy way to incorporate Himalayan salt into a session is in the form of a Himalayan Salt Stone Massage. The salt stones are warmed and applied during a full-body massage, giving clients additional heat to allow the organic trace minerals in the stones to penetrate into the skin and body, making it a truly therapeutic treatment,” Brown writes.


The calming and detoxifying effects of halotherapy can support the immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. Additional benefits are reduced stress and headaches, increased energy, and better sleep patterns.
