Help Your Child Breathe Better

Halotherapy is an warmed and finely crushed dry salt particles in an airtight chamber. Since dry salt is antibacterial and super absorbent it actively kills bacteria and reduces the inflammation in the respiratory system and widens the airways for better breathing.

Studies in Europe and
Russia have confirmed that Halotherapy is safe and helps children effectively manage existing respiratory conditions, support better breathing and build a stronger immune system. Regular Halotherapy, 2-3 times a week, can help prevent the common coughs and colds, runny nose and earaches. In addition, regular Halotherapy also calms the nervous system and helps children to focus better in school as well as sleep better at night.

HALOTHERAPY HELPS CHILDREN

BREATHE BETTER AND FEEL BETTER

While there are many clinical and scientific studies conducted on Halotherapy throughout the world, the FDA has not evaluated the statements made throughout the industry. Halotherapy is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Breathe Salt, Breathe Better

Practice Respiratory Hygiene

Halotherapy is an exposure to kinetically activated dry salt. Micron sized particles are being inhaled while the large salt particles are spread on the top of the skin. Since dry salt is antibacterial and super absorbent it actively kills bacteria and reduces the inflammation in the respiratory system and widens the airways for better breathing.

Medical studies in Europe have proven that the benefits of Halotherapy are accumulative. Many adults and children with asthma, allergies, cystic fibrosis, COPD and other respiratory conditions have found that Halotherapy sessions 2-3 times a week can help mange respiratory problems and reduce the intake of medications.

Massage for Dummies

There is a first time for everything. Riding a bike, first kiss, paying bills. Like everything you have never tried before, it can be nerve wracking! That doesn’t exclude massages, and if you have never had one before you might have some questions. I am going to answer the most commonly asked!

What happens when I book a massage?

First, we take your name, phone number and a credit card. Don’t stress, we won’t charge you anything at the time of booking! The reason we take a card is because we honor a 24/hr cancellation policy. If you are a new client, we will have a couple pieces of information for you to fill out about your current health and contact information, so we advise getting to the Spa just 5 minutes early!

When I come to my appointment, what should I expect?

When you get in, you’ll be warmly greeted by front staff and made comfortable in a softly lit relaxation room with water or hot tea. You’ll be asked if you need to use our amenities before your treatment, and if not, you will relax and wait for your therapist to get you from the room. Once you’re in the massage room, you’ll see a bed and a robe. The therapist will leave you to get in the bed and under the blankets, and it is up to you to go in undergarments or birthday suit. Most wear just underwear, to expose the whole back to the treatment and still stay comfortable. Your therapist will always fold the blanket where needed to never expose private areas. Than you simply enjoy!

What if my feet stink?

Don’t worry about it. Our massage therapists are equipped to handle anything and stinky feet is nothing to stress about, especially when you’re there to relax! Most often, lotions and aromatherapy is used in massages, so that is all you will smell. You can always enhance your massage with a softening hand and foot treatment with one of our scrubs to ease your mind if that is something you worry about (or simply because it feels AH-mazing)!

What if I fall asleep during my massage? 

That’s fine! Your body is still benefiting from the treatment. Let go of your everyday worries and just escape when on the table. If you are nervous and need to talk to make yourself more comfortable, go right ahead. If not, we encourage you to really push your day and thoughts away to fully benefit from your massage.

 

Whether you’re a brand-new massage receiver, used to one therapist, or a frequent flyer, we will make you feel the most comfortable you can possibly be. Call us or book online at our website to experience a unique massage designed to fit your needs.

Talk Salty to Me

Salt rooms have been historically used for hundreds of years. Centuries ago, some European Monks noticed that treating their respiratory patients in the natural salt caves was making them better. Those smart Monks started rubbing salt stones together and having their patients breathe them in. Fast forward a bit, and Europe began to realize that its salt miners were far healthier than their coal miners! These salt rooms were known as ‘passive’ or Speleotherapy, as they don’t use any machine to get the salt particles around. It is all gravity and pressure! Now, a few hundred years later, we’ve created beautiful, comfy, therapeutic salt caves of our own.

Using a Halogenerator (machine that grinds up salt particles in its purest form and delivers to the sealed room) and salt bricks, we’ve recreated an ‘active’ version of the natural salt caves littered around Europe. This is called Halotherapy!

Let’s get a little salty, shall we?

The salt that is used in the halogenerator is salt in its purest form (NaCl). This pharmaceutical grade salt is a naturally occurring mineral with anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties!  When inhaled, the salt works as a toothbrush of sorts for you r lungs. The larger particles sit higher up in the respiratory track while the smaller ones sink into the deeper parts of your lungs. The salt ‘scrubs’ away mucus, absorbs bacteria and moisture, and generally cleans the system out.  Salt is also AMAZING for your skin! It helps eczema, psoriasis, acne, and even with recovery from cosmetic surgeries! This happens because the salt increases the cellular turnover rate and repairs the skin, stimulates new cellular growth and microcirculation in the skin.

This all sounds super geeky and really can fly over the head. The main thing to know is that Salt Therapy works. There have been dozens of scientific papers and research articles written around the benefits of Halotherapy and EVERYONE can enjoy it! That’s right, moms! You can bring your kiddo to a salt room treatment with you!!  From respiratory issues and skin conditions to detoxification, athletic performance and general wellness, Salt Therapy can help so many people.

Call the spa or go to our website and we will introduce you to Halotherapy! Let’s get salted!

Say No! to Banana Boat

When you Google Banana Boat Sunscreen, you’ll see 3 top stories shouting warnings, burns, and top 14 most dangerous sunscreens for kids. Seriously! Yikes. With so many sunscreens out there it’s hard to know what works. We’re here to help a little with the process of elimination. Here are some tips for finding a good sunscreen…Don’t fall for the high spf trap-higher spf than 50+ will trick you into thinking you can stay in the sun longer than you should. Stick to spf’s between 15 and 50+and reapply often. Even un-burned skin can be damaged!! 

Avoid the sunscreen containing Vitamin A. This sounds odd as our bodies LOVE vitamin A filled veggies. But our skin? Not so much. Vit A is also called Retinyl Palimate or retinol. These ingredients have been shown to speed up the development of tumors and lesions, and is in 14% of all reviewed sunscreens in 2017. Yikes! Avoid these, check the ingredients on the labels! Instead, look for products with Zinc Oxide, 3% Avobenzone or Mexoryl SX. These are the best shields from UVA rays. Don’t spray. I get it, the sprays are so easy it’s ridiculous and not having greasy hands from the lotion is awesome- but not as awesome as having long term healthy skin or not contracting skin cancer. Skin cancer isn’t so awesome. Spray sunscreen doesn’t provide thorough coverage and you’re inhaling stuff that may not be safe.

It’s hard finding a good sunscreen. Do a little research for the top rated and cross reference, it is so worth it! If you want instant gratification without the process of looking (especially you busy moms), swing by the spa and we will personally help you find the perfect sunscreen that can be used for the whole family right on our shelves! Don’t wait, and remember, white is the new tan!
