Come Try Salting and Feel Better at Salted Desert [business spotlight]

by Jen Grant

Salted Desert, now open in Peoria, offers a unique breathing experience in the form of dry salt inhalation therapy, or halotherapy. This drug-free, noninvasive treatment has been used throughout the world for alleviation of certain respiratory and skin conditions.

Clients sit inside a specially designed booth inhaling micronized particles of pure sodium chloride that travels deep inside the respiratory system and settles on the skin. Typically, halotherapy is done in a group setting and can take up to 60 minutes per session. Those at Salted Desert understand your time and privacy are valuable. Since clients are in their own private booth, the air saturates with salt immediately and Salted Desert is able to offer a full treatment in only 10 minutes.

Salt has been used since ancient times for its healing properties. It is naturally absorbent and can help the body eliminate toxins and pathogens. Many people report that salting helps relieve the symptoms associated with such conditions as allergies, anxiety, asthma, congestion and colds, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), cystic fibrosis, dermatitis, fatigue, psoriasis, sinusitis and stress.

Halotherapy is beginning to grow in popularity worldwide as a complementary treatment with traditional medicine. The American media is now covering topics on salt therapy, and it’s been profiled on such popular shows as Dr. Oz, ABC News, and on CNN. Oz called salt the “miracle mineral,” and said that it has “antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.”
