SALT Chamber Brings Equine Salt Therapy to Santa Anita Park

SALTainer™ will help horses combat respiratory and skin conditions to enhance performance

Boca Raton, FL – SALT Chamber, the pioneer in providing halotherapy access to horses (equine salt therapy) and pets, has partnered with Eclipse Equine Sports Therapy Center to bring salt therapy to Santa Anita Park by designing and building a SALTainer™, which transforms shipping containers into transportable and permanent salt therapy concepts.

Shipping containers have been used by renowned architects in developing homes, offices, and even portable emergency medical centers, and now, SALT Chamber has developed them into salt therapy rooms. The first SALT Chamber SALTainer™ project, the SALT BOX, was built and designed in Lincolnshire, United Kingdom earlier this year, and now the first one is being installed at the Santa Anita Park for the equine industry.

Equipped with SALT Chamber’s trademarked SALT FX® halogenerators, these shipping containers are environmentally controlled and equipped with stable partitions, chest bars, and other unique features specifically designed for horses and pets.

A halogenerator is a machine that grinds, crushes, and disperses pure-grade sodium chloride into micron-sized dry salt aerosol particles that are inhaled into the respiratory system and absorbed by the skin.

Angie and Mike Scully, the owners of Eclipse Equine Sports Therapy Center, said “We’ve been using SALT Chamber’s equipment for several years in our mobile horse trailer with great results and we are very excited to be working with the Santa Anita Park to provide a more enhanced salt therapy modality for the equine industry”.

According to the Salt Therapy Association, dry salt therapy (aka halotherapy) is a natural, drug-free therapy that helps combat respiratory issues such as equine asthma, heaves, Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO), and skin conditions like dermatitis, boils, mud fever, and ringworm.  Salt therapy also improves cardiovascular performance, endurance, and recovery.

Leo Tonkin, CEO of SALT Chamber commented, “We’ve been partnering with top trainers, owners, veterinarians, and facilities from around the world to create equine salt therapy concepts in permanent stables and mobile trailers for close to 8 years and designing and installing our new SALTainer™ at Santa Anita Park with the Scully’s is a huge accomplishment for everyone involved.”

SALT Chamber’s clients include: Patrick and Andie Biancone who’s horse Sole Volante was in the recent 2020 Kentucky Derby, Rookery Equine Spa and Therapy in the UK, Vaccarezza Racing Stables, JRs Equine Spa and Retreat, and many others.

The most convenient and affordable way to take control of your respiratory and lung health in the safety and comfort of your home –

Boca Raton, FL – SALT Chamber, the industry leader in professional-grade salt therapy equipment, products, and décor, is proud to introduce the revolutionary SALT FX® home halogenerator, the most convenient and affordable way to breathe easier at home.

A breakthrough in salt therapy for home and travel, the SALT FX® home halogenerator provides professional strength dry salt therapy that allows you to “get salted” anytime and anywhere, and in just 10 minutes.

Enjoy all the same benefits of professional, commercial quality halotherapy from a salt room or salt cave regardless of whether you’re at home or traveling with the SALT FX® home. This portable halogenerator allows you to transform any small space such as an office, bedroom, closet, bathroom, sauna cabin, or even a portable pop-up SALT Booth® into an effective salt therapy room.

A halogenerator is a device that creates and disperses micron-sized dry salt particles for respiratory and skin conditions and overall wellness.

Sleek, compact, quiet, and easy to use and maintain, the SALT FX® home is the third addition to the SALT Chamber SALT FX® brand, which represents the only halogenerators designed and engineered by a QS/ISO certified medical device company.

SALT FX® halogenerators produce the smallest consistent micron-size in the market. The smaller the particle size, the more effective the salt therapy, and 80% of the salt particles dispersed by SALT FX® halogenerators are less than 1 micron.

The Salt FX® home is also the only halogenerator with a remote control key fob and color LED lights to distinguish four personalized salt therapy programs, as well as a multi-directional airflow of salt aerosol.

SALT Chamber Designs and Installs First Salt Room at The Woodhouse Day Spa in Dallas, Texas

SALT Chamber develops new ways of doing business for spas, wellness centers & facilities in light of the COVID pandemic. 

Boca Raton, FL – SALT Chamber, a leading salt therapy industry product, equipment, and décor company, has designed, built, and installed the dry salt therapy room at the new Dallas, Texas location of The Woodhouse Day Spa. This project marks the first-ever Woodhouse Day Spa salt therapy room.

 

Salt therapy is the fastest-growing service in the spa and wellness industry. According to the Salt Therapy Association, spending time in a salt therapy environment can help clean the respiratory system, improve lung function, and boost the immune system.

 

Recent evidence and new research indicate that salt therapy positively impacts people with certain respiratory conditions. Inhaling dry salt particles may reduce inflammation of the entire respiratory tract and widen airway passages. Dry salt particles are also known to accelerate mucus’ transportation and eliminate residual tar and foreign allergens. 

 

Healthy lungs and a clean respiratory system are essential for vitality, energy, and longevity. Individuals who receive salt therapy sessions one-to-two times per week (or several times per month) enjoy better overall respiratory hygiene. Salt therapy helps cleanse and detox the lungs and invigorate the entire body with increased lung capacity and oxygen intake. Benefits include enhanced lung capacity, a boosted immune system, reduced stress, and better sleep.

 

SALT Chamber was the first to develop the multi-purpose salt therapy concept and is a pioneer and innovator in incorporating beautiful Himalayan salt as a décor element. All of the efficacy of the treatment, however, comes from the SALT FX® halogenerator. This device grinds, crushes, and disperses the pure grade sodium chloride into micron-sized dry salt aerosol particles inhaled into the respiratory system and absorbed by the skin. 

 

Established in 2001, The Woodhouse Day Spa operates as a high-end day spa franchise that brings the resort-style experience into a neighborhood setting with over 65 locations across 21. “The spa industry is shifting towards offering a wider range of treatment options that promote overall wellness,” said Terri Beckham, General Manager, Woodhouse Day Spa Dallas. “Now, with COVID, the timing is right for The Woodhouse Day Spa and us to take the next step in linking health, wellness, and beauty intricately.”

 

The new Dallas location opens November 1 at Mockingbird Station with the salt therapy room opening on January 1, 2021. The new treatment room is the first Woodhouse salt therapy space for the company; features beautiful Himalayan salt décor, and creates a signature wellness experience for guests. “The Woodhouse Day Spa has a great reputation and is known for its spa experiences, signature treatments, outstanding facilities, and the most dedicated and professional staff. Now we are adding the wellness of salt”, added Beckham. 

 

Leo Tonkin, CEO and Founder of SALT Chamber, says, “We are very excited and proud to be partnering with the Woodhouse Day Spa family for this initial project.” Leo continues, “Salt therapy is a natural way to create distinct wellness experiences in a relaxing and nurturing environment, and it’s great to initiate this new partnership.”

SALT Chamber Introduces The SALTainer™ – Salt Therapy in a Box!

SALT Chamber transforms shipping containers into transportable and permanent salt therapy concepts –

Boca Raton, FL – In 2012, SALT Chamber introduced its trademarked SALT Booth® and SALT Bed® to the spa and wellness community. Since then, they have developed innovative salt therapy rooms and caves along with revolutionizing the use of Himalayan salt as a decor element in over 1,000 projects around the world – from urban day spas and resort/destination spas to wellness facilities and med spas, as well as for personal home use.

Today, SALT Chamber introduces the SALTainer™—transforming shipping containers into transportable and permanent salt therapy concepts. SALT Chamber has worked with leading engineers, architects, and designers to develop controlled environments to provide sensory wellness experiences for effective salt therapy known as halotherapy.

According to the Salt Therapy Association (STA), halotherapy (halo is Greek for salt) is an evidence-based therapeutic treatment that evolved from the salt mines and chambers throughout Eastern Europe.

Pure grade sodium chloride is ground into micron-sized salt particles by a device called a halogenerator that then disperses the dry salt aerosol into the salt room chamber. There are numerous published medical and pilot studies along with clinical research that show how dry salt therapy provides symptom relief and benefits for overall wellness and especially for various respiratory, lung, and skin conditions.

Shipping containers have been used by renowned architects in developing homes, offices, and even portable emergency medical centers, and now, SALT Chamber has developed them into salt therapy rooms. Equipped with their trademarked SALT FX® halogenerators, these shipping containers are environmentally controlled with purified temperature conditioned air that is designed to be a uniquely relaxing and sensory-rich atmosphere, often including the use of Himalayan salt décor.

The first SALT Chamber project is currently being built in Lincolnshire, United Kingdom, called the SALT BOX, and will soon be complete to provide salt therapy to their community. Owner and business entrepreneur Rob Taylor previously worked with shipping containers as office spaces and his journey to provide salt therapy was sparked by his 9-year-old daughter’s respiratory conditions.

“Over the years, it has resulted in many hospital visits, sometimes by ambulance and lots of overnight stays. We’ve been managing her symptoms with inhalers and steroid treatment but with repeated attacks and no improvement, we decided to do our own research and look for other alternative ways to help her. This is when we came across salt therapy and after a few sessions, we noticed a huge difference. That’s when we decided to do SALT BOX.”

Rob added, “I wanted to make sure I was doing this the right way and when researching a partner, I contacted the experts in the salt therapy business and began working with the SALT Chamber team in designing and engineering SALT BOX.”

“This was a unique opportunity to continue our vision of providing innovative salt therapy concepts to communities,” said Leo Tonkin, CEO and Founder of SALT Chamber. “SALT Chamber has been working on developing other transportable ways to offer salt therapy, especially during the COVID pandemic, and the SALTainer™ concept was born.

SALT Chamber has designed several models for the SALTainer™ including smaller containers that can easily be transported and installed in remote locations as well as in permanent locations. From shopping mall parking lots and hospitals to athletic training facilities to outdoor environments including horse stables for equine salt therapy, SALT Chamber has an affordable solution to provide salt therapy virtually anywhere.”

SALT Chamber to Work with Gronkowski Family on Salt Room at NexGen Fitness in Buffalo, New York

How SALT Chamber is working with gyms and fitness facilities to introduce salt therapy to improve their client’s respiratory health and hygiene –

Boca Raton, FL – SALT Chamber, a leading salt therapy industry product, equipment, and décor company, has been hired to partner on the design, build, and install of the salt room at the new NexGen Fitness in Buffalo, New York, along with the Gronkowski family’s G&G Fitness Equipment, who will be supplying the fitness equipment. This project will mark the first time a NextGen Fitness facility adds a salt therapy room.

The state-of-the-art salt room is part of NexGen Recovery, a revolutionary addition to private training at NexGen Fitness that offers recovery and rejuvenation via infrared saunas and salt therapy.

Top athletes are always looking to get the most out of their performance by training to reach their maximum potential. A big part of their training may include finding ways to improve their breathing patterns, optimizing lung capacity, and shortening recovery time.

Once thought of as just a way for individuals to combat respiratory and skin conditions, athletes are now turning to dry salt therapy to gain an edge over the competition and achieve their best sports performance.

A private personal training studio offering a state-of-the-art alternative to mass-marketed group fitness in a clean and upscale environment, NexGen Fitness allows clients to train in the privacy of their own training suite, with a personal trainer dedicated solely to the client’s success. The equipment is not shared, and clients are kept socially distant in separate areas.

SALT Chamber was the first to develop the multi-purpose salt therapy concept and has worked with fitness facilities such as Fahrenheit Body Spas, New Leaf Fitness and Spa, Avenue X Fitness, and Focused Fitness to transform empty or underutilized rooms into stunning and effective salt therapy rooms.

All of the efficacy of salt therapy, however, comes from the SALT FX® halogenerator, a device that grinds, crushes, and disperses the pure grade sodium chloride into micron-sized dry salt aerosol particles that are inhaled into the respiratory system and absorbed by the skin.

NexGen Fitness Himalayan Salt Room - Buffalo, New York

A rapidly growing franchise revolutionizing the personal training industry, NexGen Fitness currently has 10 franchises in Texas and Oklahoma. The new Buffalo location will be located at 40-50 Fountain Plaza, which is located in the heart of the Central Business District of Downtown Buffalo and is a prime location between Buffalo’s Entertainment District and Theatre District. The Gronkowski’s partnered with NexGen founder and CEO Bryan Whatley as co-owners of the new studio, with Dan Gronkowski then contacting SALT Chamber to design, build, and install the salt therapy room.

“Once Bryan and I agreed on including salt therapy, my first call was to SALT Chamber,” said Gronkowski. “They have worked on over 1,000 projects all over the world and are innovators and pioneers in the salt room design process.”

“We’re very happy that Dan introduced us to Leo and the team at SALT Chamber when we decided Buffalo would debut NexGen Recovery,” added Whatley. “They have designed salt therapy rooms at some of the most prominent addresses in the world, and the results are stunning.”

Leo Tonkin, CEO and Founder of SALT Chamber said, “We are very excited and proud to be partnering with NextGen Fitness and the Gronkowski family for their initial NexGen Recovery project.” Tonkin continued, “Salt therapy is a natural way to create distinct wellness experiences in a relaxing and nurturing environment, and introducing dry salt therapy into sports training can lead to better lung function and improve overall performance, endurance, and recovery.”

Heaves Treatment For Horses Using Equine Salt Therapy

Do you often hear your horse coughing from their dusty stall? Do not dismiss it as a throat tickle or something that may resolve on its own. It may be heaves, a common, performance-limiting breathing condition that can develop from being in a confined, dusty setting for a long period of time.

Beyond a chronic cough, nasal discharge is another characteristic of heaves, which is also known as Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO), COPD, broken wind, and emphysema.

Horses can suffer from impaired respiratory function due to airway congestion and constriction that can ultimately hinder athletic performance. Heaves in horses, which is most like asthma in humans, is not only the result of inhaling dust but mold particles and pollen as well.

The classic signs of heaves in horses include flared nostrils, difficulty breathing, and a heave line, which runs diagonally from the point of the hip forward to the lower edge of the ribs. A heave line develops because when a horse is having a difficult time breathing, its abdominal muscles exert a tremendous outward force during an exhale, causing a line to develop in their skin. Symptom most often occurs around eight or nine years old.

heaves horse salt therapy 300x200 Heaves Treatment For Horses Using Equine Salt Therapy

Symptoms of Heaves

  • Constant coughing
  • Labored breathing as the horse exhales
  • Wheezing (which might be especially noticeable when eating hay or exerting effort under saddle)
  • A slowdown in performance

How Salt Therapy Works for Horses

Once inside a salt room created in a stable or mobile trailer, or by using a portable unit, a horse will undergo salt therapy by breathing in the dry salt aerosol (pure grade sodium chloride) created by the halogenerator. A halogenerator is a machine that crushes, grinds, and disperses the pure grade sodium chloride into an aerosol that the horse inhales.

According to the Salt Therapy Association, inside the respiratory system, the dry salt acts as an anti-bacterial agent by clearing secretions and dissolving bacteria and pollutants lodged in the respiratory tract. Ultimately, this lessens inflammation in the lungs, which allows mucus build-up to thin out, thereby improving lung function and opening breathing passages.

Equine Salt Therapy for Equine Asthma

In the same way it is important to humans, nothing is more vital to a horse than its respiratory health. That’s why equine asthma must be addressed immediately. For horses to flourish and prosper in general, much less be healthy and succeed as athletes in sports such as horse racing, equestrian, and polo, a horse’s respiratory health must function properly by effortlessly pumping massive amounts of air in and out of their body.

At rest, a healthy horse takes between 10 to 14 breaths per minute and inhales approximately 150 liters of air. Just like humans, horses can suffer from asthma. Commonly referred to as equine asthma, this condition causes the horse to cough, wheeze, and struggle to breathe due to airway inflammation and mucus accumulation.

equine asthma 150x150 Equine Salt Therapy for Equine Asthma

Historically known as inflammatory airway disease (IAD) and recurrent airway obstruction (RAO, or heaves), it has been reported that equine asthma affects an amazing 25 to 80% of stabled horses in the United States. Beyond just overall health, efficient athletic performance for a horse suffering from equine asthma is nearly impossible.

Humans and horses have very similar respiratory and lung systems and with more and more humans turning to dry salt therapy as a treatment for asthma, the equine salt therapy industry is exploding.

SALT Chamber – The Pioneer of Equine Salt Therapy

The pioneer in providing halotherapy access to horses (equine salt therapy), SALT Chamber has partnered with the top trainers and facilities from around the world to create equine salt therapy rooms to combat equine asthma in permanent stables and mobile trailers using our SALT FX® Pro halogenerator.

Our clients include:

  • Vaccarezza Racing Stables – Boynton Beach, Florida
  • JRs Equine Spa and Retreat, Pleasant Hope, Missouri
  • Hauck Racing Stable – Anderson, Indiana
  • Eclipse Equine Sports Therapy Center, Atascadero, California
  • Rookery Equine Spa & Therapy, Ltd., Cheshire, United Kingdom

Vaccarezza also has a mobile trailer for equine salt therapy at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, while Eclipse uses their mobile trailer at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California.

Why Salt Therapy for Horses with Equine Asthma

Due to their large lung capacity, horses tend to have issues with normal mucociliary clearance.

According to the Salt Therapy Association, over a series of sessions, inhalation of dry salt aerosol will work to decrease or eliminate bronchial inflammation and pathogenic microorganisms, as well as reduce bronchial hyper-responsiveness.

Undergoing regular salt therapy treatments will clean a horse’s respiratory system, which, in turn, can produce an improvement in lung function, increase in oxygen-carrying capacity, decrease in spasmodic attacks, and clearer airways. Those critical performance enhancers may lead to an increase in stamina, raised energy level, and faster running.

Benefits of Equine Salt Therapy for Equine Asthma

  • Clears Mucus from Respiratory System
  • An Effective Decongestant
  • Perfect Complementary Treatment
  • Drug-Free/Eliminates the Need for Medication
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Strengthens Immune System
  • No Discomfort

How Equine Salt Therapy Works to Combat Equine Asthma

As the horse inhales the aerosol, the dry salt goes to work inside the respiratory system by acting as an anti-bacterial agent, clearing secretions, and dissolving bacteria and pollutants lodged in the respiratory tract.

Fusion Therapy – A SALT Chamber Client Success Story

In 2010, Terry Schibler and his wife Gena Lewis-Schibler were on vacation in Naples, FL.  At the time, they already believed in the healing properties of salt, both physically and energetically. They saw a sign in a small strip center that said, “Salt Cave”. They looked at each other and wondered if it was a tropical fish store? Ha!

They were curious, so they stopped in. To their delight, it was a large room filled with Himalayan salt. They stayed and experienced their first 45-minute, halotherapy session. Both felt calm and relaxed and able to take nice, deep breaths.

“I remember looking at Terry and saying, I don’t care if anyone gets it, I want one. Let’s see what it would take to add this to our bodywork practice,” said Lewis-Schibler.

At the time, they had a 24-year practice doing advanced bodywork in Sarasota, Florida, and there were only four Salt Rooms in the United States that they could find online. They ended up visiting two in Chicago, Illinois.

“We started to do research and found instructions on the internet of how to build a salt room,” added Lewis-Schibler. “We then connected with a realtor and bought a 1,600 square foot building to join our bodywork practices with two salt rooms…one for children and one for adults.”

Gena ordered every known salt on the planet to compare them. Although she loved the dry salt therapy and beauty of the Himalayan Salt Cave, it seemed a little sweet, and she wanted power!

Gena wanted the therapy to feel less like a spa treatment and more like therapy for the respiratory and nervous systems, along with it being strong enough to help with skin problems.

After working with the salt, which Gena ordered from the Israel side of the Dead Sea, she knew she wanted to use this powerful salt.

Building a salt room with such an oily, mineral-packed salt turned out to be a challenge. It kept sliding down the walls and falling off.

“We were able to connect with a handyman from Poland who flew home to see how they had (organically) constructed salt rooms there,” said Lewis-Schibler. “We finally figured it out after much trial and error and now boast the most powerfully, therapeutic rooms that we have experienced!

Discovering Salt Chamber

“As luck would have it (or divine intervention), we found Leo in Boca Raton, the Founder and CEO of SALT Chamber. We had already bought one generator, (the Iris-35) from a well-respected salt room representative and it has been great for our 90 square foot Children’s Salt Room, which we call ‘The Petite Suite’. However, the design allows the salt to run through the electronics, so we’ve had to replace the motherboards now and then.

“For our 240 square foot Adult Salt Room, which we call ‘The Grande Suite’, we purchased a SALT FX® Pro halogenerator from SALT Chamber that cost less than the Iris-35. After eight years of daily use, it is still going strong.

“The SALT Chamber SALT FX® Pro halogenerator has two parts so the salt does not go through the electronics. The SALT FX® Pro halogenerator fills our Grande Salt Suite beautifully, and the salt decor hero img 1 150x150 Fusion Therapy – A SALT Chamber Client Success Storypharmaceutical grade salt that we purchase from SALT Chamber performs THE BEST of all the pharmaceutical grade salts that we have tried! We have had SALT FX® Pro halogenerator for eight years and have only replaced the teeth that grind the salt as crushing the salt can dull them after a couple of years.

“Leo and the entire SALT Chamber team have been fantastic with their support. We started when there was very little help available on how to start and run a successful salt therapy business. We spent way more money trying to figure out how to build salt rooms. We could have saved ourselves frustration and money if we had met him sooner, but so happy that we used SALT Chamber for our Grande Salt Suites halogenerator and have them as a source of support now.”
