Halotherapy is to {be} #salty; not business “trendy”

Salt rooms started being constructed in Russia years ago. Due to their quick popularity, a Pink Himalayan Salt Room is almost treated as a trend since the growth and development in the United States and Europe has been rapid over the past recent years. Unfortunately, many of the existing salt rooms today are truly part of a “trend” instead of truly part of the “cause” for holistic health support.

As much as one could argue “ignorance is bliss”, the {be] is one of the halotherapy centers that is going to break that cycle. Due to the lack of knowledge, many salt rooms have been established on the “look” and make claims to meet health needs of clients without the proper equipment. As beautiful and intriguing the salt cave, salt room, or salt spa may look, there is only a limited amount of support it can provide clients if it does not have proper equipment.

A review of research on halotherapy was published: “Salt rooms and halo therapy in european Health Resorts and Spas: fashionable trend or real therapy?”. The interesting facts of the research review validated the {be}’s message to our local community. It is awesome to see such a great alternative grow in popularity, but do not let business development trick you out of true treatment and holistic support. This alternative treatment is not based on the “look” of the salt room in anyway. As many are confused, the salt wall, salt floors, and salt pits are actually no different than a salt lamp that you can place in your home. The salt rooms lacking proper equipment are actually just an oversized salt lamp. The success of this holistic treatment, known as (dry) Salt Therapy or Halotherpy, is based on the existence and use of equipment that can make the salt aerosol disperse into the air, creating the same environment as a salt cave the Russians used to defend into to receive aid for respiratory needs. Being able to inhale the salt aerosol is the essential key to having a successful Salt Therapy treatment. The article of the research review also shared some key factors:

1.) Controlled halotherapy is authorized for medical use in Russia and the Baltic countries. The distinctive features of controlled halotherapy are:

    • that its effects are scientifically based
    • it provides the ability to close and control the levels of salt aerosol (aka: control of halogenerator)
    • its clinical effectiveness is proven

2.) The previous mentioned points have been confirmed by numerous studies and practical uses in various medical fields:






3.) In Russia, controlled halothearapy Salt Rooms have been installed in thousands of clinics, nursery schools, schools, sanatoriums, rehabilitation and spa centers.

At the {be}, we utilize a Halogenerator developed and created by the credible company Global Halotherapy Solutions. They have multiple forms of creating Halotherapy treatments, but the {be} purchased the Halo FX (their most popular and effective equipment). The Halo FX is customizable for room size (small to large) and needs of clients. It is very user friendly and allows the {be} to ensure the best service to each client. Along with these facts, the Halo FX is the only UL certified halogenerator on the market, this certification is an upcoming requirement of all halotherapy centers (information on globalhalotherapysolutions.com). Global Halotherapy Solutions provides the safest and purest form of Pure Sodium Chloride for the best health benefits. The benefits of dry salt include anti-aging, anti-fungal, antibacterial, super absorbent, anti-inflammatory.

It is an exciting time for the {be}, as we are getting to partner with a local stress management coach! One thing we at the {be} believe (based on previous employment) is many professionals (employees and business owners alike) do not truly understand the effects of stress on their body. We also believe they do not understand how their body is actually reacting to the stress. It seems some professionals have adapted to the stress; not to say they are dealing with it correctly, but meaning that the overwhelm feels almost comfortable to them in their day to day routine. img_0516-1The expectation of the weight being worn around daily by professionals has essential and unknowingly become part of their job duty and identity. It is not uncommon to hear the average conversation:

“Hey, it is great to see you! How are you doing?”

“Doing good, super busy as usual. How are you?”

“Busy as well! We should catch up sometime! It has been way too long!”

Does that conversation sound familiar to you, reader?  Unfortunately, “busy” does not mean productive, effective or profitable. But, what does “busy” mean? The question we all really know the answer to, yet rarely admit (verbally out loud that is).  “Busy” means lots of things, yet usually not the positive things. For professionals it may mean:

  • taking on responsibilities outside of their job duties because it is short staffed at work
  • taking work home, because what needed to get done at the office was not done during the work hours
  • entering a new phase of life into their prior “normal” and learning how to balance the “new”
  • an authority transition above them causing frustrations on job expectations
  • working with an incompetent coworker
  • being treated poorly at work and at home
  • learning how to be a new mom and learning a new position at work
  • it is “peak” season in their industry and balance in life is hard to find
  • financial stress causing them to burry their life in work in hopes for advancement (maybe even some overtime pay)
  • concerning health situations going on with them or their family

….and the list goes on.

Unfortunately the result of overwhelm, overworked, and burnt out usually takes a toll on the other aspects of life before it takes a toll on one’s career (hear me out). Excessive stress can cause major health issues, marital issues, relational issues, poor financial decision making, and begin a snow ball effect one may not even realize is happening. Inevitably, if someone doesn’t handle their stress appropriately, they will exude their stress inappropriately. How? There are examples all around you. Have you ever seen the guy/lady driving, hanging out his window, screaming at another “car”? A common site, too often utilized to handle frustrations on the road, yet a prime example of someone who has failed to deal with other stressors and stress in their life. Eventually explosion will happen when stress build up is too much.

Luckily for all the stressed local to the {be}, Veronica is going to save our community 1 stressed professional at a time!
