Imagine. Soothing sounds surround you as you relax quietly in a darkened, peaceful room beautifully decorated with shimmery salt crystals while a tiny machine spreads microscopic particles of pharmaceutical grade salt into the air. You can’t see the salt. You can’t smell the salt. But touch your tongue to your lips and taste the salt. You are experiencing the rejuvenating benefits of salt therapy – the next big thing in pampering and healing yourself. You are in the Salt Room at Sculpt Away, spending 45-minutes to relax, de-stress and improve your health. Salt Therapy, also called Halo Therapy (Greek word halo meaning salt) is an unforgettable, totally unique experience, and in San Antonio, is offered only at Sculpt Away. Salt Therapy is relatively new to America, but salt therapy’s roots date back to the 19th century. In 1843, a Polish physician noticed that workers at a salt mine, unlike other miners, didn’t have respiratory problems and were in good health. He studied the workers and published his findings. Soon after his publications, spas opened within Eastern European salt caves. Salt therapy continues to be popular in Eastern Europe and Russia today. In the last decade, the use of Halo Therapy has spread to Western Europe, Canada and Israel. In the US, the salt therapy movement had its origins at the east coast and has grown throughout the country. Facilities offering salt therapy can only recently be found in Austin, Houston and Dallas/Ft. Worth. Sculpt Away proudly offers the first and only Salt Room in San Antonio. Join the beauty insiders and holistic healers who were first to learn the secret of the natural antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties of salt which lead to improvement in both beauty and health. The salt also emits negative ions which promote relaxation, reversing the effects of the positive ions given off by our cell phones, computers and pollution, all of which agitate the nervous system. Indeed, this age-old alternative remedy is said to alleviate symptoms of seasonal allergies, colds, insomnia, snoring, anxiety, acne, eczema and psoriasis… and provides an “instant glow.” Halo Therapy is drug free, holistic and free from side effects.
