Halotherapy in our Private 

EMF Radiation Free Salt Room


What is it? 


Salt and Saline inhalation treatments are as old as time. Doctors have used saline in main stream medicine for a longtime to treat respiratory conditions, sinus problems and allergy symptoms.


"Inhalation of hypertonic saline produces a sustained acceleration of mucus clearance and improved lung function. This treatment may protect the lungs from insults that reduce mucus clearance and produce lung disease,” As published in The New England Journal of Medicine, 2006

Does it work?


“The clinical state of 85% of the patients with mild and moderate bronchial asthma, 75 % with severe bronchial asthma, 98% with chronic bronchitis, bronchitis and cystic fibrosis improved after Halotherapy. The patients were examined 6 and 12 months after the first Halotherapy course. No aggravations of the disease was seen from the third to the twelfth month. The average duration of the remission was 7.6-0.9 m. Most of the patients (60%) used no medication and sought no medical advice” according to the clinical study"


Halotherapy for Treatment of Respiratory Diseases

as published in the Journal of Aerosol Medicine, Volume 8, Number 3, 1995.


Is it safe?


Halotherapy is drug free and a 100% natural method developed by Prof. Alina V. Chervinskaya, M.D., Ph.D. The process works by letting the patient inhale salt particles from the air. Salt levels are controlled by an advanced computer regulated machine. The machine keeps the dry salt aerosol levels constantly optimal and concentrated in the air. Halotherapy is similar to swimming in the ocean and is equally safe for children.


How many treatments do I need?


The amount of treatment sessions depends on the individual and their condition. Recommendations vary from 3-25 sessions and with  various saline concentrations. More details can be seen in this document.


How are you different from other salt caves?


The salt on the walls and floor in all salt caves serve a decorative, aesthetic and therapeutic purpose by providing negative ions.  Our salt cave uses European technology to physically grind laboratory pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride (superior to food grade salt) to a specific molecular size (1-5 microns) that is measured by a laser instrument in the the salt cave and is then sprayed into the air generating dry salt aerosol until the required concentration is achieved. We decided to decorate only the walls with salt and leave the floor untreated to provide a clean and dust free environment for breathing. Our salt room is cleaned every day and salt concentrations are achieved by spraying dry salt aerosol in the air and measured with our precision laser equipment every single session.



EMF Radiation Free


Our salt cave was built with a Faraday cage, sealed with carbon YShield paint and grounded to our copper pipes to block electromagnetic fields which you can measure with our 3 axis EMF meter. Or simply see the signal bars on your phone drop when you walk in to the room.


Built Healthy - We have designed our facility to be healthy from the inside out. We have used specialized re-purposed cotton insulation and hospital grade drywall that is designed to prevent mould. All paints and sealants were certified to contain zero VOC or formaldehyde which is common in general construction materials and practices.


How much does it cost.


The price is $40 per person.

Kids (4-12) are $20.

Infants (0-3) are free.

Room has 2 available anti gravity beds and a small kids play area, an extra bed may added at customers request.
