Best New Halotherapy Product Ever!
After one year of the first-ever joint product development between the halotherapy and infrared industries, we are thrilled to announce a partnership today with the leading infrared sauna company (Clearlight InfraRed). The new HALO-IR™ will be the most impactful halotherapy product ever for spas and wellness centers, allowing them to maximize space while getting four wellness options in one. This will increase the number of people spas can help while also increasing profitability.
Forever, we have been told to limit the salt in our diet. First it had to do with high blood pressure and heart disease. Then it moved to auto-immune diseases. “For instance, multiple sclerosis and inflammatory bowel diseases are only some of the autoimmune conditions that a high-salt intake can exacerbate by overstimulating immune reactions, according to an article in Medical News Today.
And now, according to the same article, “new research in cell cultures and two separate mouse models finds that a diet high in salt reduces tumor growth by altering the function of certain immune cells.”
The good news is that from the standpoint of halotherapy or dry salt therapy salt simply isn’t an issue. The average halotherapy session uses about a teaspoon to a tablespoon of salt for the entire session and across the entire room, cabin or booth. This means that any individual is breathing in much less than this and isn’t really swallowing. So as usual the medical community is undecided or conflicted on the question of salt consumption but if you are a regular user of halotherapy you just don’t have to worry.

A new article in DaySpa Magazine is talking up the wonders of dry salt therapy, “according to a recent article on Relaxing on the beach has long been considered the epitome of a stress-free vacation, but it’s not just the sand and sun that do a body good. Turns out, breathing in salty air can actually benefit one’s health and well-being, especially when it comes to respiratory ailments, reports the Global Wellness Institute (GWI).”
“So it’s no surprise that salt therapy, also called halotherapy or speleotherapy, has been popping up in more and more spas as part of their holistic wellness offerings. In fact, this latest trend has the potential to deliver long-term benefits to spas and clients alike, says Ann Brown, founder and CEO of Saltability and co-chair of the Exploring Salt & Halotherapy Initiative. ‘Spas are looking for ways to be hip and boost revenue—salt therapy does both,’ she notes.”
“Salt has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, and it’s super absorbent,” says Steve Spiro, founder and CEO of Global Halotherapy Solutions and co-chair of the Exploring Salt & Halotherapy Initiative. He adds that this can help detoxify the body and alleviate skin irritation, and that as awareness of these purported benefits increases, so too does the demand for salt therapy offerings. “Six years ago, there were only 200 facilities offering halotherapy in the U.S. Now there are around 2,000; spa-goers are seeking this wonderful—and low- cost—modality,” says Spiro.
This month sees UK charity, Active Nation breaking new ground in the leisure industry, in partnership with Global Halotherapy Solutions. The UK’s first, state of the art Salt Booth has been installed at Southampton Council’s Quays Sports Centre. The Centre comprises one of the region’s best diving and swimming complexes, gym, exercise studios and children’s facilities.
Stuart Martin, Managing Director of Active Nation adds: “We are incredibly proud to partner with Global Halotherapy Solutions delivering the UK’s first leisure centre-based Salt Booth. From leisure centre users seeking a relaxing ‘spa’ treatment, to those looking for a natural remedy to their respiratory or skin ailments, this holistic approach provides benefits for all. It’s a hugely exciting time in the leisure industry and we look forward to making spa and remedial treatments more accessible nationwide.”
Vice President of Business Development for Global Halotherapy Solutions for the EMEA Region, David Hughes, says: “For centuries, salt caverns have been used to treat respiratory and skin problems, and now, in partnership with Active Nation we are making this hugely effective, natural therapy accessible to all. The Salt Booth has been methodically designed so that people can relax in a soothing and tranquil environment. Wellness sits top of the agenda for leisure operators in the UK and we look forward to complementing Active Nation’s leisure offering.”
