The Benefits of Visiting A Himalayan Salt Room

Millions of years ago, continents collided causing an entire ocean bed to be pushed up into the Himalayan Mountains. The ocean dried up, but the salt remained. Though it is buried deep within the mountains, this special salt has some incredible powers.

Himalayan Salt contains over 84 minerals that help promote health and wellness on many levels. I have written about the benefits of having Himalayan Salt Lamps in your home and office (we keep them everywhere in our house). This salt produces the negative ions that balance out the positive ions we encounter – from anything electronic and smoke oriented – every day and makes us feel great.

This week, I discovered something called a Himalayan Salt Room at Halo Salt Spa in Westlake Village.

What is a Himalayan Salt Room?

A Himalayan Salt Room is a room with Himalayan Salt, everywhere. The walls, the ceiling, the floor are all made from Himalayan salt, also called the vitamin of the air. It is even pumped in through a ventilator during the treatment time – the salt is literally everywhere.

There are chairs set up in there for you to sit in for a 45-minute treatment. You enter barefoot and it feels a little like being in the sand.

At Halo Salt Spa, the room holds up to 6 people at a time. Some people request silence and others, like myself, go with a friend and use the time to catch up – the choice is yours.

Himalayan Salt removes the toxicity from the respiratory system, which in turn improves your skin quality, gives your immune system a huge boost, reduces stress naturally and can help promote sleep.

Not only does Himalayan Salt reduce inflammation, but it also is known to kill bacteria and decrease the sensitivity of your immune system.

A Himalayan Salt Room is a great natural treatment for Asthma, Acne, Allergies, Eczema, Sinutus, Psoriasis, Emphysema, the common cold, blood disorders, stress and will naturally make you feel like a super hero.

My Himalayan Salt Room Experience

Upon entering the Halo Salt Spa, I began to relax immediately. It is decorated with chic, calming design and the owner and employees are all very friendly and ready to help make your experience incredible.

The owner greeted me with a smile and patiently explained to me the whole process, as this was my first time.

I wore comfortable clothes – leggings and a cozy top. My friend wore a skirt and a tank top. Both choices were fine.

I removed my shoes as instructed and entered the room. This is when the relaxation went to a whole new level. The whole floor is salt so it feels like you are at the beach. It was not sticky or uncomfortable in any way, actually it was quite nice.

One wall is a window facing a peaceful view to the outside. The other 3 are made of salt, as is the ceiling. Then the ventilators go on for 45 minutes. When they stop, it is the signal that your session is over.

It is very easy to breath in there and very spacious.

There is a pretty sign with glowing colors that help relax you as they change color and several Himalayan Salt Lamps placed around the room.

I went in with a little head cold and a bit plugged up in the nose.

I came out with a completely clear nose and able to breath with no trouble.

And I felt like I was ready to take on the world. My stress levels were definitely on the decline from spending 45 minutes breathing the Himalayan Salt deeply, relaxing and catching up with a good friend.

I loved it! I will be back again for sure.

Halo Salt Spa offers memberships and bundle packages for the Salt Room treatment. It has been suggested that going 1 – 2 times a week will keep you on a healthy path and this is what I plan to do!!

They also offer you the first Halo Salt Spa Salt Room treatment for free, so there is absolutely no risk in trying it! They are a truly conscious spa.

I highly recommend it if you are in the area. You will feel amazing afterwards!
