The Incredible Salt Room In St. Louis That Completely Relaxes You
You might have seen those pink Himalayan salt lamps popping up in the news and on social media. If you’re wondering how they work, it’s all based in a holistic treatment called Halotherapy.
Halotherapy has been around in various forms for thousands of years, particularly in Eastern Europe. Mineral baths and saline sprays are the most common forms, primarily used to help relax tired muscles and reduce swelling, but there are several other methods that are becoming increasingly popular as well. You can see for yourself what all the talk is about at the St. Louis Salt Room!
Early Halotherapy practitioners attempted to recreate the conditions found inside salt mines after realizing how healthy the miners appeared (especially compared to other types of miners!) Mineral-rich Himalayan and Dead Sea salts are used to produce a natural dry salt mist made up minuscule particles that are safely inhaled and coat exposed skin.
Compared to other holistic treatments, Halotherapy is one of the more inexpensive options. Unlike other spa therapies that crank up the heat, the St. Louis Salt Room stays at a comfortable 72 degrees with around 50% humidity, so you don’t have to worry about overheating!
Even if you aren’t treating ailments, a trip to Salt Room is incredibly relaxing. Between the floor-to-ceiling salt, the sandy salt floor, and the comfy lounge chairs, a trip to the Salt Room feels like a day on the beach! It’s hard to complain about any spa treatments, but this one is especially relaxing.
The 45-minute sessions cost $35, but you can also purchase packages of multiple sessions that decrease the cost of individual sessions. There is even a new Salt Cabin available for private or pair sessions starting at $42.50.
The St. Louis Salt Room is located at 2739 Sutton Blvd., Maplewood, MO. For more information, check out the
