The Bluegrass Salt Room brings you a drug-free, safe, and all natural breathing therapy, called Halotherapy. Our salt room is designed to create an ideal breathing environment, which can help bring long term relief for many respiratory and skin disorders.

You can take off your shoes if you like, relax in a zero gravity lounger, and listen to serene background music while you receive the therapy.
Halotherapy (derived from the Greek word “halos” meaning salt) is a 45-minute dry salt inhalation therapy simulating the salted microclimate of the ancient European salt caves. With the technology of a halogenerator, a machine that grinds salt into tiny micro-particles then disperses them into the air in controlled concentrations, we are able to mimic the microclimate found in European salt caves right here in our community.
For over a century Halotherapy has been used as an effective treatment option for respiratory ailments in most Eastern European countries. Published observations written by Polish physician, Dr. Feliks Boczkowski at the Wieliczka salt mine in 1843, widely recognized Halotherapy as a treatment for respiratory ailments. He recorded that salt miners were not experiencing lung related disorders such as asthma, pneumonia, or bronchitis, which were common during that time. Miners who had respiratory illnesses before working the mines had fewer symptoms the more time they spent breathing in the salt air. The Wieliczka salt mine is still in full operation today offering medical treatment for respiratory ailments.
Did you know that asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases in the United States, affecting more than 20 million adults and more than 6 million children? Are you aware that the state of Kentucky had the highest COPD Presence in 2013? Do you know every time a person takes antibiotics, sensitive bacteria are killed, but resistant ones may be left to grow and multiply? The importance of sinus and respiratory health is rising, and the search for natural treatment options is growing.
With today’s environmental pollutants and irritants on the rise, it’s no surprise that the number of salt rooms in the United States is rapidly increasing. Salt therapy is no longer limited to just gargling and rinsing the sinuses to ease soreness and pressure. The inhalation of dispersed salt micro-particles in the salt room can penetrate to the deepest parts of the lungs, open airways, break up mucus, absorb excess moisture, calm an agitated respiratory tract, as well as destroy fungus and bacteria in the mucosal lining and on the skin.
Halotherapy has no side effects and may be used in combination with prescribed medications or as a sole therapy for just about everyone. Halotherapy is a great preventative measure against colds, can help strengthen the immune system and enhance athletic performance by increasing lung capacity. Himalayan salt is a full spectrum salt containing 84 minerals and trace elements essential for life. Regular consumption can balance electrolytes, support proper nutrient absorption, balance the body’s pH, and may even normalize blood pressure. Negative ions naturally releasing into the air from the salt aids in the reduction of stress, anxiety, and fatigue — while increasing energy levels, improving one’s mood, and also providing mental clarity and focus.
