Salt Room Therapy
What is halotherapy (salt therapy)?
Dry salt therapy also known as halotherapy is an all-natural, drug-free therapy that benefits the lungs and skin while enhancing overall well-being. Salt is a natural disinfectant, it is anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Salt is also super absorbent. It absorbs allergens, toxins, and foreign substances. It also absorbs moisture in the respiratory tract which thins mucus, making it easier to expel.
Dry salt therapy is a relaxing, holistic therapy that is beneficial for people of all ages. Step into our Charlotte salt room for a 45-minute session, and instantly feel waves of relaxation wash over you.

Salt has three primary characteristics:
- Salt is Super Absorbent
Dry salt acts like a sponge attracting foreign substances along its path through the respiratory tract. It naturally absorbs allergens, toxins, and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory system. Salt absorbs moisture in every part of the respiratory tract and this helps to thin mucus. The thinned mucus is easier to expel naturally.
- Salt is Anti-Bacterial
The dry salt particles act as an anti-bacterial agent, dissolving bacteria and pollutants lodged in the respiratory tract. These are then either coughed up or naturally expelled by the body.
Inhaled dry salt particles, or salt inhalation therapy, helps to reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen the air passages. A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy, and an improved immune system.
Benefits Of Salt Room Therapy
Frequently Asked Questions
In Charlotte, allergies can be common, especially at certain times of the year. Allergy relief doesn’t always have to come in the form of shots or medication. A salt room is one of nature’s natural allergy treatments and can be quite effective.
When you have allergies, your immune system makes antibodies that identify a particular allergen as harmful, even though it isn’t. When you come into contact with the allergen, your immune system’s reaction can inflame your airways. The natural anti-inflammatory properties of salt can help to reduce this inflammation and thin bronchial and nasal secretions. Improved drainage allows for a reduction in contaminants that may trigger or prolong allergic episodes.
It varies from person-to-person, depending on individual needs and desires in the outcome for salt room therapy. The more often you come, the more likely you are to experience long-term benefits from your salt room experience.
For general respiratory hygiene, once or twice a week will enhance lung capacity, boost the immune system, reduce stress, and aid better sleep.
