The True Benefit of Pink Himalayan Salt

There seems to be confusion in the spa and wellness industry about the difference between dry salt therapy/halotherapy and Himalayan salt products and Himalayan spa equipment.

Both SALT Chamber and the Salt Therapy Association (STA) have addressed the “myth information” about claims that salt facilities, salt vendors, salt builders, and salt equipment providers are making about the benefits of having pink Himalayan salt and/or utilizing Himalayan salt in their facilities such as Himalayan salt lamps, Himalayan salt wall décor, Himalayan salt stone massage kits, Himalayan salt beds and other spa equipment and products.

These claims range from stating that negatives ions are being released from heating Himalayan salt, acting as air purifiers, cleaning the air for respiratory benefits, and other so-called wellness benefits.

The STA published a detailed article and blog about the evidence surrounding this issue and provided specific information regarding the science, research, and testimony from chemists, physicists, and researchers that completely refute any of the claims that are being made: https://www.salttherapyassociation.org/images/Misconceptions-Regarding-Himalayan-Salt.pdf

Health Benefit Claims of Pink Himalayan Salt

Since the salt therapy industry has not been regulated, there was an open market for those introducing products like Himalayan salt lamps and making various claims, and many followed suit by making the same marketing claims about the benefits of these products without validating the evidence behind these claims.

As the wellness industry continued to grow, the evidence-based modalities and the STA’s three principal pillars on Education, Research, and Innovation began to pursue their role to research these claims and thus took action to inform the industry and its members as noted above. Some of these companies stopped making these claims while others have continued to do so.

However, there still seems to be some confusion about dry salt therapy/halotherapy and pink Himalayan salt. The efficacy of halotherapy is solely dependent on the equipment that provides and delivers the dry salt aerosol of pure grade sodium chloride into a salt room, chamber, or cave known as a halogenerator.

Many of these salt rooms have Himalayan salt as décor and architectural elements, however, there is no benefit as to the efficacy of the Himalayan salt, even when heated, in terms of providing negative ions, respiratory aid, or other benefits. The efficacy of halotherapy is derived from inhaling micronized salt particles and having these particles penetrate the skin.

Thus, the Himalayan salt is merely a décor and architectural feature with regards to salt therapy.

SALT Chamber is an innovator in the salt decor design process and started using Himalayan salt, not only for its unique beneficial qualities but for its amazing natural colors, hues, and creative applications.

As salt therapy began emerging as a growing trend amongst spas and wellness centers, other applications for using our pink Himalayan salt décor began to expand to other uses such as wall treatments and flooring in various environments and spaces.

The SALT Chamber design and installation team have worked on over 1,100 salt therapy room projects across North America and around the world. Ask us about our shop drawings and full installation kit, and watch our webinar on Himalayan Salt Décor, Products & Spa Equipment.

SALT Chamber has developed and perfected a proprietary method for manufacturing prefabricated Pink Himalayan Salt Rock Panels to be used in any salt decor project.

Our standard size panels are 22” x 22” (almost 4 sq. ft.) and are hand-crafted and molded from pure Himalayan salt – they’re durable, safe, and healthy.

Our Himalayan Salt Bricks and Tiles are not your typical salt bricks. There are a variety of sizes ranging from 4” x 4” bricks to as large as 10” x 16” and everything in between.

The Himalayan salt bricks are available in pink/amber color variations, as well as the rare Himalayan white.

We have proprietary design methods for installing these bricks that eliminate the need for mortar or permanent construction.  We also have developed systems to eliminate shadowing effects and hot spots from backlighting.

Salt Therapy for Horses – Treat Respiratory and Skin Conditions

Horse racing season is here, and SALT Chamber’s innovative SALTainer™, which transforms shipping containers into transportable and permanent salt therapy concepts, is getting rave reviews from trainers and owners at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, California.

Angie Scully, co-owner of Eclipse Equine Sports Therapy Center, who partnered with SALT Chamber to bring salt therapy to Santa Anita Park via the SALTainer™, was recently featured by Cal Racing Cares, who is committed to maintaining the highest animal welfare and safety standards in Thoroughbred racing in California.

Watch the video below.

SALT Chamber at Santa Anita Park

The Stronach Group, which owns and operates Santa Anita Park, as well as Gulfstream Park, Palm Meadows Thoroughbred Training Center, Golden Gate Fields, Pimlico, Laurel Park, and Portland Meadows is committed to achieving the highest level of horse care and safety standards in Thoroughbred racing and endorses salt therapy as a natural, drug-free treatment for horses to combat respiratory and skin conditions.

Track and state veterinarians have endorsed salt therapy for horses as a safe, therapeutic treatment, while the top owners and trainers from around the world have seen the benefits of salt therapy with regard to performance and recovery.

At the $70,000 Clockers’ Corner Stakes on January 31, Gregorian Chant, Strike Me Down, and Thanks Mr. Edison, all three of whom undergo equine salt therapy with Eclipse Equine Sports Therapy Center via our SALTainer™ at Santa Anita Park, finished first, second, and third.

Horses are exposed to the same air we breathe which often contain pollutants, pollen, and more.

The quality of air in barns and stables is often poor due to dust, mold, and other airborne irritants, which causes horses to experience inflammation, extra mucus, and restrictive breathing.

While both human and horse lungs share a long list of similar characteristics, and horse lungs are proportionally equal to human lungs, their capacities are quite distinct.

Humans inhale and exhale somewhere around 7 to 8 liters of air each minute, while nearly 60 liters of air move in and out a horse’s lungs every minute!

Due to this large lung capacity, horses often have issues with normal mucociliary clearance, and, in fact, there are specific guidelines for measuring this excess mucus, especially with Thoroughbred and racehorses.

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.

During an equine salt therapy session, micron-sized salt particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli to reduce inflammation, dissolve bacteria, and cleanse the respiratory system.

A clean respiratory system from salt therapy will allow for:

  • Improved lung function
  • Increased oxygen-carrying capacity
  • Clearer airways

These vital performance enhancers may:

  • Increase the horse’s stamina
  • Raise its energy level
  • Help it run faster
  • Enhance recovery

Horses also face extreme skin conditions from being exposed to wind, dirt, mud, and other factors.

Why Now is the Right Time to Start a Salt Therapy Business

How has the pandemic impacted our industry and what lies ahead?

Getting into the Salt Therapy Business

Timing is critical for so many aspects of our lives.  Sometimes it’s great and other times (like most of 2020) it’s not. When it comes to getting into the salt therapy business, however, the timing has never been better.

While many people have expressed concerns about starting or getting into the salt therapy business during the pandemic, others have seen an opportunity.  Never before has respiratory wellness, strengthening immunity, and self-care been so important and on top of everyone’s mind.

Prior to COVID-19, the salt therapy business and industry had been accelerating in growth.

According to the Salt Therapy Association and others, the overall industry is growing even more.

Unfortunately, there have been many spas, wellness centers, and other facilities that have been greatly impacted, like so many other small businesses, in various cities across the nation and the world.

Yet, there have also been so many projects that have been moving forward. Many facilities are pivoting to add salt therapy, new start-up businesses are emerging, while existing facilities have even been deemed ‘essential’ in their communities.  And most importantly, people are going to get salted.

Is it the right time for you to get salted?

While interest in starting a new salt therapy or related business, or simply adding salt therapy to an existing business, has become a great opportunity—time and money are always key factors in determining decisions. Many people are concerned about COVID-19, the economy, changes that may occur in our government, and what lies ahead in 2021 and beyond.

When evaluating a business opportunity and investment, you are looking at several key indicators:

  1. How are the market and industry?
  2. What is the risk?
  3. What are the costs and Return-on-Investment?
  4. Does it fit with your vision and goals?

Salt Therapy Market and Industry

Dry salt therapy (halotherapy) is a growing market.  According to the Salt Therapy Association, the industry has been on an accelerated growth pattern for several years as the awareness and education of the market has been increasing.  According to the Global Wellness Institute, the forecast for the wellness industry has never been more promising.  The demand for respiratory health, lung function, mental health, and building the immune system is only going to grow.

When you begin to explore the amount of the population that suffers from all types of respiratory and skin conditions (allergies, asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer, bronchitis, cold and flu, eczema, psoriasis, etc.), it is significant.  The amount of money spent on prescription and over-the-counter medicines is well over $100 billion a year.  Salt therapy is safe, drug-free, and a great complimentary treatment that is backed by science and research.

Risk Adverse or Risk Tolerance

There is always a risk in anything we do.  When assessing the risk that involves an investment of time, money, energy, and resources, one must evaluate the cost-benefit of the risk.

Currently, the demand and money spent on respiratory health—including allergies, asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, lung cancer, and now COVID-19—is over $100 billion.  From over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs, doctor visits, and hospitalizations; not to mention costs for employee absenteeism, lost productivity, and school attendance— the cost is significant.  Halotherapy has a proven track record of evidence-based science and research and continues to garner the attention and recommendation of pulmonologists, respiratory therapists, infectious disease doctors, clinicians, and researchers.  The market that benefits from salt therapy includes pretty much anyone who breathes.  That includes children to seniors with respiratory and skin conditions. Additional benefits include enhancing overall wellness, improving athletic performance and recovery, reducing stress and anxiety, improving breathwork, and more. The demand for respiratory wellness and health is high, and salt therapy is safe and helps to improve the quality of life.

Return-on-Investment

The real question is the hesitancy of evaluating the cost versus the return.  How much is in the investment?  What’s the impact on cash flow?  How can I increase my revenues?  What is my profitability?  Can I afford it right now?

In assessing an investment, you also need to realize when you will not only achieve a return on investment, but also begin to produce profitable revenue.  This can be calculated based on increased revenue, increase in new customers, referrals, cross-over sales, etc.  While professional commercial salt therapy equipment and concepts can range from an entry point of approximately $4,995 for our SALT FX® halogenerator and $7,500 for a commercial SALT Booth®, small room projects which include a SALT FX® halogenerator can range from approximately $10K to $15K for equipment, décor and the build-out.  There are obviously larger and more elaborate décor designs that can range from $35-$50k and some well over $100K.

The consumable used is pure grade sodium chloride, which only costs pennies a session.  For example, a 10-lb. container of HaloSalt™ costs $25 and can provide at least 400+ salt sessions in a SALT Booth®.  It uses low power so there are minimal, if any, additional utilities.  And the labor involved comes to only a few minutes here and there during the day to refill with salt and to clean the equipment.

The average single salt session ranges from $15-$45 per session and can greatly differ from a stand-alone treatment or a treatment packaged with other modalities to discounts on bulk sessions and even memberships.  Based on an average of $25/salt session, a salt room or SALT Booth® can generate $3,000 a month based on just 4 sessions a day.  If you increase to 1 session an hour in an 8-hour day, that doubles to $6,000 in monthly revenue.  Salt rooms that have multiple chairs or multiple salt rooms or SALT Booths® can see what the projections look like by increasing the occupancy and utilization.

Bottom Line

In addition to the financial contribution to the bottom line, there is the enhanced value of providing a wellness treatment that produces results for people, is easy and simple to use and maintain, does not require additional labor, and is safe.

Self-care, respiratory wellness, strengthening the immune system is critical and the bottom line is that the timing for salt therapy is now.

Will Salt Therapy Affect Super Bowl 55?

Possibly, but at least one member of the San Francisco 49ers believes it affected Super Bowl 54.

During “The Benefits of Salt Therapy for Athletes” Panel Discussion at the 2020 Salt Therapy Association Virtual ConferenceSTAcon 2020SALT Chamber client Shoshana Treichel, owner of Above and Beyond Yoga and Salt Therapy in Mobile, Alabama, shared the following:

“(San Francisco 49ers defensive back) Jimmie (Ward) has been practicing yoga with us for years. When he came back from the Super Bowl, he asked if we had completed our salt room yet because the Chiefs stayed at a hotel in Miami that had salt therapy, and we think that’s the edge they had”.

The hotel that the Kansas City Chiefs stayed at for Super Bowl 54 was the JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa in Aventura, which features two salt therapy rooms designed, built, and installed by SALT Chamber.

The 49ers stayed at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami, and although they have a spa, they don’t have a salt therapy room.

As you may recall, the 49ers led the Chiefs 21-10 heading into the fourth quarter, and according to ESPN, halfway through that quarter, they had a 95.3%-win probability.

What happened next?

Over the final 6:13 of the game, Kansas City scored 21 unanswered points to win the championship 31-20.

How Salt Therapy Works for Athletes

Was salt therapy the difference in the Super Bowl?

First, let’s examine how salt therapy works for athletes.

Airflow obstruction and airway inflammation are two respiratory conditions that can cause poor breathing patterns that affect an athlete’s performance and ultimately lead to:

  • Increased dehydration
  • Reduced stamina and performance
  • Increased likelihood of cramps and injury
  • Increased recovery time
  • Elevated heart rate

Once athletes can optimize their breathing, less breath is required, which, in turn, means they have more air in reserve to achieve superior performance.

According to the Salt Therapy Association, during a typical session, the micron-sized dry salt particles that are dispersed from a halogenerator enter the respiratory system and:

  • Dissipate mucus from the airways to remove airflow obstruction and maintain clear airways
  • Provide anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effects in the whole respiratory tract
  • Help to clear unwanted, inhaled particles from the respiratory tract

Enhanced lung capacity leads to increased levels of oxygen and red blood cells, which can positively affect endurance and performance.

For three quarters and 45 minutes of game time, San Francisco was the better team.

Football is a four-quarter, 60-minute game, however, and according to the Associated Press, “San Francisco had nothing left in the fourth quarter”.

Did Kansas City win Super Bowl 54 because they spent the week at Turnberry, and their players used salt therapy to gain an edge over the 49ers by improving their breathing patterns and optimizing their lung capacity to ultimately enhance their endurance and performance?

Kansas City may well have been the better team, and we don’t know if any players ended up using the salt rooms, but with the way the game unfolded, and Jimmie Ward’s statement, a case could be made that salt therapy had an effect on the result of Super Bowl 54.

Let’s see what happens if the Chiefs fall behind this year!

In a related salt therapy Super Bowl scenario, SALT Chamber is working with Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tight End Rob Gronkowski, Gronk Nation, and the Gronkowski family business G&G Fitness Equipment on the new NexGen Fitness facility in Buffalo, New York.

The Gronkowski’s will be supplying the fitness equipment, while SALT Chamber will handle the design, build, and installation of the therapy room.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.”
