WHAT IS SALT OR HALOTHERAPY?
Salt rooms and salt caves have been very popular in Europe for over 100 years in the treatment of bronchial and lung afflictions as well as other diseases. Modern salt therapy or “halotherapy” involves sitting in a room consisting of salt-coated walls and floors while inhaling salt-laden air. The CryoFit Salt Room employs an ISO-certified, medical grade “halogenerator” that circulates salt throughout the room and introduces it into the respiratory system.
WHAT IS THE CryoFit Salt Room?
The CryoFit Salt Room consists of Himalayan salt brick walls and a Himalayan salt floor. Our clients relax in comfortable zero-gravity chairs while listening to tranquil music. Our salts contain over 80 minerals which are released in conjunction with high negative ionization, essentially creating the same healing micro climate of salt mines or caves.
HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
Sessions start on the hour and last 30–45 minutes. Clients should arrive 10–15 minutes early to check in, store their belongings and prepare to enter the CryoFit Salt Room. There is no admittance into the salt room once a session has started.
WHAT DO I DO DURING A salt room SESSION?
Just lie back and relax in our zero-gravity chairs. You should focus on inhaling deeply through your nose and exhaling through your mouth. Do not worry if you fall asleep! (It is not uncommon). You should expect to awaken refreshed and relaxed.
DO I HAVE TO RESERVE A SPOT, OR CAN I JUST SHOW UP?
Although we strongly encourage reservations in order to avoid having to wait, it is usually not necessary. Sessions start on the hour, and anyone may participate as long as you are medically able and as long as space is available.
CAN I TALK IN THE CryoFit Salt Room?
Once your session has started, all participants should refrain from talking so that other participants may relax and enjoy their experience in quiet. If you are part of a group that has reserved the room for the hour, feel free to speak with your friends.
IS THERE A CANCELLATION POLICY OR FEES?
The CryoFit Salt Room recognizes that life happens, and it may be unavoidable to miss or cancel a session. However, the CryoFit Salt Room reserves the right require a credit card to reserve your spot for future sessions. We ask all participants to kindly provide at least 24 hour’s notice in the unfortunate event that you must cancel your session. This notice allows us to make space available so that others may participate in the experience.
MAY I BRING MY CHILD?
Children are allowed in the CryoFit Salt Room. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to ensure others can enjoy a tranquil environment. Toys are available for the little ones to play with.
HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE ALLOWED IN THE CryoFit Salt Room?
The CryoFit Salt Room will comfortably seat six adults.
CAN I BOOK A PRIVATE SESSION OR A FAMILY GROUP SESSION?
Yes! Please contact us at (262) 746–2022 to reserve the CryoFit Salt Room for your special occasion!
DO I NEED TO BE CONCERNED ABOUT SPENDING TIME IN THE CAVE WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE HEALTH ISSUES?
Himalayan salt has very strong anti-bacterial and anti-microbial properties that provide a safe and sterile environment. However, as an added precaution, individuals suffering from cold or flu viruses will not be allowed in the CryoFit Salt Room.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR IN THE CryoFit Salt Room?
Loose comfortable clothing is encouraged! We have bathrobes and slippers if you will be staying to utilize our other services. Should you choose to wear your own dry shoes in the cave, we will provide you with booties to slip over your shoes. You may also wear white socks or stockings in order to enjoy the salty sensation beneath your feet! We provide free lockers to secure your personal belongings while you enjoy your treatments.
