A while back I visited the Salt Room in Orlando for a Mills 50 networking event. The Salt Room is a member of the Mills 50 main street district as are we, so we went in support of another business right in our backyard.
To give you a little background, The Salt Room is a salt therapy and wellness center. Salt Therapy or Halotherapy has been used to treat upper and lower respiratory problems such as allergy and sinus problems – among other things. Salt Therapy is very popular in Europe where they are known as Salt Caves. The owner of the Orlando Salt Room, Ashley Lewless, decided to bring this unique treatment to Florida.
I have to say it is an interesting experience – something I’ve never seen before. The room is covered in natural rock salt, and by covered I mean literally covered on the ceilings and floors! You recline in a relaxing chair during your 45 minute session as the halogenerator crushes up pharmaceutical grade salt into small particles for inhalation. You can just relax and close your eyes or even read a book while you simply inhale. I left feeling refreshed as if I could breathe clearer. It really seems to open up your air ways! As for the salt, it is so fine you almost don’t even notice it. Your skin and lips feel a little salty like as if you’ve been at the beach all day. They also offer yoga, massage, acupuncture, and skin care.
P.S. They are offering a Buy One Get One Free for an adult membership -Buy a 3 Month Adult Membership for yourself, get one FREE for a family member or friend.*
