Located in Nicholasville, the Bluegrass Salt Room helps residents of Central Kentucky breathe easier, relax more completely, avoid illness and enjoy life. Celebrating its second anniversary, the Bluegrass Salt Room specializes in all things salt, including Halotherapy.
History and principles of Halotherapy
Every day, we are exposed to air mixed with pollutants, bacteria, allergens, viruses, dust, mites, chemicals or other irritants. When these foreign substances become trapped and are not removed from the lungs they can become toxic, decrease lung volume, and obstruct airways. A series of salt therapy sessions can provide better lung function, fewer spasmodic attacks, clearer air passages, and thinner mucus secretions, which can expedite the elimination of pollutants throughout the respiratory tract.
Historical records of people seeking out salt caves to help them breathe better can be traced back as far back as 1200 AD. However, it wasn’t until the 1800’s when salt caves would become recognized as a treatment for respiratory diseases. In 1843, A Polish physician published his observations of salt mine workers who were not suffering from respiratory illnesses at the same rate as those who worked outside the caves. Those workers were, indeed, healthier!
Fast forward to today: People no longer have to travel to European salt caves in search of the positive effects that inhaling dry salt particles offer the lungs, respiratory tract, and sinus. The Bluegrass Salt Room provides a replication of the underground salt cave microclimate right here in Kentucky! During a 45-minute session, clients relax in a zero gravity lounge chair and listen to serene background music while breathing in dry salt micro-particles. The climate in the room is carefully controlled to ensure the right balance of salt to most effectively help with asthma, allergies, sinus infections, COPD, and eczema.
Following the therapy, clients report feeling more relaxed, being able to breathe deeper, having more energy, and experiencing fewer episodes of respiratory illness.
Bring the benefits cleaner air home
