What is Himalayan Salt?

Our featured decor row of Himalayan salt bricks are natural pieces of salt crystal that have been hand excavated from ancient primordial salt rock that has crystallized at the foothills of the Himalayan Mountains.  As salt crystal is naturally hygroscopic it will absorb water molecules from the air, so you may notice our salt bricks or feature walls begin to "cry" if they’ve remained unlit for any period of time. The heat from our light sources keeps these beautiful crystals dry, and in turn they may release healthy negative ions into the air at exhalo Spa.  These unique benefits are married with the purest salt form (Pure Sodium Chloride) for our halogenerator inhalation usage. This is one of the highest-grade salts you can find on the market, and the cleanest salt to use for both respiratory and skin conditions. It also ensures the salt particles are small enough to have the maximum halotherapy effect.

Why Himalayan Salt?

Salt has been used throughout the ages to clean energies from homes and people. You can use Salt to clear crystals, clear your body and clear your home. Because salt crystals vibrate at a frequency closer to the earth’s magnetic frequency (known as the shuman resonance frequency) they can also help bring us back in balance. The various healthy living ionizing objects that fill our Spa (like many green plants & Himalayan salt crystals) may literally make you feel better! As you can see, pure Himalayan Salt may have multiple benefits for the body.

By combining these unique therapeutic properties with the purest salt form of Pure Sodium Chloride for our halogenerator inhalation usage, we  may just help multiple ailments all within our

 joyful, healing spa .

Why Himalayan Salt AND a Halogenerator in our Salt Room?

Did you know that there are both positive and negative ions existing in the air around us?  Negative ions in the air attract particles of pollution and give them a negative charge, making them seek an electrical “ground,” and causing them to fall harmlessly to the floor. So, it stands to reason that we want to be surrounded by negative ions as a way of protecting our health.  Injured and diseased cells are electron-deficient, so submitting the body to an electron-rich environment benefits and heals cells by absorption. 

Second, salt in its micro-crystalline form has antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral effects on the epithelial cells (one of the body’s most important for protection and secretion). The salt helps your cells consolidate inflammation and mucus, so your body can get rid of it.

It’s scientifically based that an astonishingly small quantity of negative ions may kill air borne diseases like colds, influenza, and other respiratory ills, as they quickly remove them from the air so they are less likely to infect people.  Air charged with negative ions may help cure attacks of asthma and bronchitis more quickly and those surrounded regularly with negative ions are less prone to rebound attacks. Atmospheric ions may even have an effect on infants, especially those who may suffer from asthmatic bronchitis.   Salt is also excellent for clearing spaces of any negative energy.  Possibly another reason why the space and energy within exhalo Spa feels so wonderful!

Nature is constantly producing negative ions to combat the pollution in the air. This is why the air feels so refreshing after a storm: lightening produces a high concentration of negative ions, which purifies the air and makes it so invigorating. Water from a cascading waterfall also produces negative ions as the water thunders against the pool below, causing both friction and evaporation (both energy sources). For the same reason, the enormous amount of negative ions in the pure air at the seashore is caused by the constant rise and fall of the tides.  We aim to recreate this effect within our Salt Room using our beautiful and warmly lit Himalayan salt bricks.

Negative ions released from our Himalayan Salt bricks may also neutralize EMF.  Since we are constantly surrounded by modern day WIFI, cell phone towers and other electrical appliances, there is an abundance of Electromagnetic Radiation or EMFS. These EMF's high in positive ions have been known to reduce our serotonin levels and may contribute to the cause of cancer, fatigue and a host of problems we unfortunately face today.  

Our mid-centered Salt Room is like a giant salt crystal lamp that may have the ability to generate abundant negative ions neutralizing any EMF's within the space at exhalo.

Pairing all the multiple benefits of age old Himalayan salt, along with newer modalities such as Halotherapy; the use of dry salt vapor created with a halogenerator to recreate a modern day European  “salt cave” here in Canada, we  may now effectively ease respiratory ailments, skin irritations and combat mental lethargy. You can experience these harmoniously combined benefits all this while you simply relax and breathe at exhalo Spa.  

We hope you'll breathe clearer, your stresses & skin ailments will reduce, and that you'll find you even have increased energy levels after your Salt Room experience at exhalo, the spa that feeds your soul.

Salt Therapy is 100% natural, drug-free and non-invasive

The ambient lighting created within our exhalo Salt Room also provides a soothing ambiance that may help with relaxation, stress reduction, attention deficit, autism, sleep and more. Physicians and other practitioners in the exploding field of complementary medicine often use salt lamps for Color Therapy (chromotherapy), a well-documented alternative method of diagnosing and treating various illnesses. They seek to balance a person’s “energy,” wherever it is lacking (physical, spiritual, emotional or mental).  Countless Ayurvedic and Energy medical professionals have also found color therapy to be useful in positively influencing our mood, mental state, and energy level.

Get ready to unwind, meditate or sleep, and simply lay back in our zero-gravity loungers (neck warmers & blanket included when covid protocols allow it) for your session to inhale salt, and exhale wellness.

We'll provide your feet simple "booties" to ensure our salt floor stays clean, and you're welcome to wear your street clothes inside our relaxing Salt Room.  We also have a new fireplace to ensure you stay cozy and warm!

Experience total bliss and chromotherapy under our mandala in the salt room and simply exhale, we've got you.
