Ascent Wellness FAQs
Ascent Wellness answers your questions about massage, salt therapy and sauna services.
People with certain conditions should avoid halotherapy. Those with infectious diseases or a fever cannot take part in salt room therapy. Patients with cardiac insufficiency, chronic kidney disease, hypothyroidism, or tuberculosis also should not take part in salt treatments. Consult with your health care professional before scheduling salt therapy.
We recommend wearing comfortable clothing to your session. If you are seeking relief from skin conditions, we recommend wearing clothing that exposes the areas of skin you wish the salt to reach within a modest manner (shorts, tank-tops and T-shirts are acceptable). We require wearing socks in our salt cave for sanitary purposes. We will have socks available for purchase if you forget to provide your own.
Our beautiful and serene salt cave allows customers to experience dry salt therapy with a small group (1-8 people) over a 45-minute session. Himalayan salt covers the walls and floors to calm the mind and body by releasing negative ions, which counterbalance the positive ions we pick up from our electronic devices. Neutralizing the surrounding atmosphere stabilizes mood, decreases stress, and promotes healing. Participation requires nothing more than lying back in a comfortable zero-gravity chair and breathing deeply as you relax, read, listen to music, sleep, or meditate. We discourage cell-phone use in our cave as it can become a distraction for others. We encourage everyone to use this time to take a break from technology and be present during your session.
Salt therapy is an all-natural treatment for people of all ages. Babies as young as three months benefit and respond to halotherapy treatments. Salt therapy offers an excellent alternative to pregnant women who want to avoid over-the-counter and prescription medication for sinusitis, asthma, allergies, and other respiratory illnesses during pregnancy. The ionized salt particles also boost their immune system. We offer special days for children’s sessions in the form of events. Our “Children’s Story Time in the Salt Cave” offers a wellness opportunity in a relaxed and fun setting. Families may also rent out our salt room for private therapeutic sessions for their children.
Though you may experience health benefits after a single session, long-lasting results occur with regular treatments. For best results, we recommend a series of treatments. Chronic conditions benefit from regular sessions, as often as twice a week, over a few weeks or months. Symptom relief may last for months before you require additional treatment. If the goal is rest and stress relief, you may come as often as you like.
Regular salt therapy may reduce the need for inhalers and antibiotics, improve breathing and lung function, strengthen the immune system, and more.
Conditions known to benefit from salt inhalation include:
- Bronchitis/Chronic Bronchitis
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Hay fever
- Laryngitis (Pharyngitis)
- Low Endurance/Stamina
- Snoring/Sleep Apnea
- Sore Throat and Tonsillitis
- Stress and Fatigue
Our commercial grade halogenerator grinds salt into microparticles and disperses them evenly throughout our authentic Himalayan salt cave. You inhale the dry salt-enriched air into your lungs, which widens your airways and loosens mucous to reduce inflammation and enhance breathing. Non-inhaled particles land on your skin, which balances pH and induces reparative and regenerative processes in the skin.
Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, is a natural treatment that uses microparticles of medical-grade salt to promote better health. During a salt therapy session, dry salt aerosol flows through a salt cave where the walls and floor are covered in thousands of pounds authentic Himalayan salt. Breathing the air in this negative ion and antimicrobial environment promotes better breathing, healthier skin, improved sleep, and reduced inflammation. This alternative treatment aids many health conditions including anxiety, asthma, allergies, skin conditions, fatigue, stress, COPD, and inflammation.
