Private Himalayan Salt Room
Wear comfortable clothes. For those using the salt bed, thin clothing allows the FAR Infrared to penetrate deeper. The room can accommodate up to 3 people via 2 zero-gravity chairs and 1 salt bed. The floor is covered in Himalayan salt, so we provide footies for all salters.

What are Negative Ions?
An ion is an atom or molecule with an electrical charge, either positive or negative. Ions are naturally created when things such as sunlight, radiation, or moving water break apart molecules of air. The environments around mountains, waterfalls, and rolling oceans are rich in negative ions. Negative ion therapy uses negative ions to produce beneficial effects. Many people find it improves their health, particularly in the areas of depression, bronchial issues, allergies, blood pressure, stress, and the removal of toxins.
Positive ions can be absorbed from sunlight or electronic devices like computers and cell phones. These ions can inhibit cell functioning. Negative ions boost cells’ ability to use nutrients and remove waste, increase oxygen flow to the brain, and balance the body’s pH by decreasing its acidity. European research has shown that negative ions increase collagen production, make cell membranes more permeable, and help strengthen the immune and autonomic nervous systems. Research in Japan has shown that negative ions maintain a balance between insulin and the adrenal functions in the autonomic nervous system, and that negative ionization increases the ions in the calcium and sodium (salt) in the blood and raises its alkalinity. Gamma globulin also increases, creating blood that is rich in proteins as well as antibodies.
We use the Himalayan Salt, as well as Jade and tourmaline stones to produce negative ions in our salt room.
What is FAR Infrared?
The visible range of the sun’s light includes our familiar rainbow of colors. But only 44% of the full spectrum of sunlight is in the visible range. High-frequency ultraviolet rays make up 4% and can age skin prematurely or cause cancerous changes. Low-frequency infrared rays make up 52%. They are not harmful and do not damage the skin. Infrared light transmits more heat than ordinary light. FIR therapy uses far infrared light rays to provide some of the benefits of sunshine without direct exposure to the sun.
How does FAR Infrared therapy work?
Absorption of the sun’s rays helps stimulate the body’s metabolism. We need light in order to properly absorb certain nutrients and minerals. A lack of sunlight can lead to lower immune function, tension, fatigue, depression, and insomnia. FIR light raises the body’s temperature. This increases circulation via the dilation of blood vessels, which does not increase blood pressure. FIR heat penetrates past the skin and our insulating fatty layer, 4-6 inches into the body. The heat resonates with the cells and invigorates them. The body responds to FIR therapy mats faster than to traditional heating pads, and the effects continue even after use is ended. The benefits of FIR therapy may be enhanced by natural jade or tourmaline. The infrared rays emitted by our mats vary from 8um-14um with an average of 9.5um.
What is a hot stone treatment like?
FAR Infrared therapy, is deeply relaxing. The slow release of heat from the salt & stones stimulates and relaxes the circulatory system. This aids the muscles in releasing toxins and helps the body heal. It softens tense muscles, easing pain and spasms and bringing a feeling of peace and well-being. Relaxation spreads throughout the tissues, stress is released, and body, mind, and spirit are energized and rejuvenated.
Since hot stone therapy aims to provide peace and relaxation, it is best experienced in a quiet space or with soft music playing. This allows the recipient to focus deep within and release all stress and tension. Often, recipients go into a meditative state or fall asleep. Deep sleep is a restorative state during which the body can perform healing processes. The heat of the stones, the relaxation of the muscles, and the sense of release combine to send the body into a restorative mode.
Who should not receive FAR Infrared Salt Bed hot stone massage therapy?
As a general rule, people who should not receive standard massage therapy, such as children or pregnant women, should not receive hot stone massage therapy. Hot stone massage therapy should not be applied to areas with varicose veins, wounds or open skin infections. It is not appropriate for people who have had bypass surgery, have pacemakers, are using muscle relaxants or blood thinners (such as Coumadin), have a negative reaction to heat, are experiencing menopausal hot flashes, or are very elderly. People in any of these categories should first consult a physician.
