New Orleans's First Halotherapy Room
Practiced for centuries in Europe, Canada, and Southeast Asia Halotherapy (Dry Salt Therapy) has finally arrived in New Orleans. This is a natural treatment that cleanses both the airways & the skin to relieve congestion, inflammation & skin irritations. During each session, the atmosphere of the room is infused with micro-particles of salt which can be breathed deeply into the lungs to open & cleanse the airways of smoke, dust, pollutants, & other allergens. The micro-particles of salt are easily absorbed through the skin to help calm inflammation & promote hydration. The negatively charged ions of the salt create a deeply relaxing environment ideal for meditation & rejuvenation. You’ll leave each revitalizing session with a clearer breath & mind.
I discovered the healing benefits of Halotherapy while trying to find a way to alleviate my daughter’s persistent respiratory ailments. Like many New Orleanians, she suffers from frequent allergies issues year round. Living down here in the damp swamps, her immune system was battling oak tree pollen in the spring, grass in the summer, ragweed in the fall, and mold pretty much all the time. This led to frequent doctor visits and many missed days of school. The year I discovered Halotherapy she had missed nearly 5 weeks of school due to respiratory issues. While I valued our pediatrician’s care, I was frustrated by her repeated suggestions to give her Claritin & Flonase every day. I knew that these simply masked the symptoms of an imbalance she was experiencing rather than clear the root problem.
On a particular challenging spring night, unable to fall asleep because of the constant coughing coming from my daughter as she slept, I began researching holistic treatments for allergies and came across Halotherapy. I was intrigued and made an appointment for the next day at the nearest center that offered this treatment. I was skeptical, but to my surprise, 30 minutes in the Salt Room offered a relief to Stella that over-the-counter medication had not. We visited two more times that week & by the end of the week, her symptoms had completely subsided. We would visit a few more times when my daughters allergies would flare up but I knew as with all healthy practices consistency was the key to its effectiveness. Traveling an hour to get treatment every time wasn’t sustainable so I began the process of figuring out how to bring Halotherapy to New Orleans, and with the help of my Swan River Family was able to open the first Halotherapy room in the New Orleans area. This has been and an invaluable service in our life and I am grateful that I now get to share it and its benefits with you.
"I went in yesterday suffering with severe allergies! I was a little skeptic, but will try anything to help with my sinus issues! About an hour or so after the treatment I could feel things starting to loosen up. I am elated to say that I woke up this morning and feel 1000 times better than I did yesterday and I can BREATH!
I am and will recommend this to anyone!"

"I've been sick like everyone else in nola right now so I did my first session in the salt room yesterday morning and I could feel the congestion start clearing up during the session. I'm going back again tomorrow because I'm sure it will clear up any residual mucus I have."
