Just Add Salt – Halotherapy

In the 1800’s a Polish doctor discovered that the men working in the Polish salt mines rarely suffered from breathing, sinus, or respiratory conditions. Salt therapy rooms, like ours at Waterside Day Spa, recreates or mimics the same environment of a salt mine by increasing the density of salt air with a halogenerator.

Surrounded by naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial salt, the salt rooms become a sterile environment, making them one of the cleanest places to relax and rejuvenate. Part of what makes our salt suite unique is 750 lbs of Himalayan salt on the wall, along with the halogenerator, which works to eliminate allergens, asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis, ear infections, and stress, while also boosting your immune system and helping you to sleep better and feel more energized throughout the day.

The negative ion environment that this creates is what makes out salt room so relaxing.
Thunderstorms, waterfalls, snow, and waves crashing on the beach are all examples of negative ion environments. Positive ions are found in dust, humidity, and pollution. Positive ions are also emitted from electronics such as cells phones, tv’s, and microwaves. This room is completely free of those pollutants and toxins we are surrounded by daily.

During your salt therapy (halotherapy) session, try alternating breaths between your nose and your mouth. When breathing thru your nose, try alternating nostrils for 3-4 breaths at a time. This will help the salt aerosol travel the best throughout your entire respiratory tract to increase those fabulous anti-inflammatory benefits!

Once a week is ideal to keep your immune system strong. However, please not that halotherapy is not recommended when sick, contagious, or coming down with a cold. It is most effective when used as a health routine to prevent the cold, flu, and other viruses.

Returning from COVID – Protocols for Salon/Spa

Dear Friends,

We are so delighted to be reopening our doors to you after a six weeks of being closed. Hoping everyone had time to relax, create, play, practice, design, and connect with yourself and loved ones.

Since we are one of the first industries that if officially permitting leniency in the 6 feet of social distancing, since providing personal services is impossible without contact, we are taking extra protocols to ensure that everyone is made safe. Here’s our plan!

  • Staff members must self screen for COVID-19 every day, including measuring the employee’s temperature. Waterside Day Spa shall keep records that the screen was completed by having staff members sign a record that the symptom check has been completed. Any employee that exhibits COVID-19 symptoms will be excluded from work.
  • All employees and customers must cover their nose and mouth with a face- covering at all times. This includes while receiving massage, hair and nail services. If you require a face mask that does not interfere with your hair color being applied, washed, or styled – we have some beautiful locally crafted masks for purchase.
  • Signs (and official Mitigation Protocols, as required by Routt County) will be posted at the entrance of Waterside Day Spa & Salon informing all staff members and customers that they must avoid entering the facility if they have a cough or fever, maintain a minimum six-foot distance from one another when possible, sneeze and cough into a cloth or tissue or, if not available one’s elbow, not shake hands, or engage in any unnecessary physical contact. 
  • Staff members have all signed off on receiving and understanding these Mitigation Protocols prior to being permitted to work.
  • Sanitizer stations are available right at the entrance to Waterside Day Spa & Salon at the front desk, along with on each hair or nail station. Two restrooms are also available with soap and water.  Everyone entering our business is asked to please wash or sanitize their hands before greeting your service provider.
  • Other high-touch surfaces will be regularly disinfected and environmental cleaning guidelines from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will be followed (e.g., clean and disinfect high touch surfaces daily or more frequently). We always use hospital grade disinfectants.
  • Additional time has been allocated in between all services to fully sanitize all counters, chairs, tables, and treatments supplies before the next guest arrives.
  • All stations and seating areas open to the public are at a minimum of 6 feet apart.
  • Doors will be propped open to increase natural air flow, when weather permits.
  • Hospital grade HEPA air filters are used throughout our business.

Information and regular updates are being shared at www.covid19routtcounty.com. The county’s forum for COVID-19 discussions is at https://www.facebook.com/routtcounty/ and the
local 
call center phone number is 970-871-8444.

Salt Therapy for IMMUNITY

IMMUNITY   Cold + Flu Prevention 

A natural, holistic, and drug free approach to maintaining a strong and healthy immune system awaits. Dry Salt Therapy can help to relieve and eliminate the symptoms associated with cold + flu, such as sinus pressure, headaches, difficulty breathing, chest tightness, coughing or frequent infections.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Plan for a restorative 45 minutes. Dress comfortably.

During a Salt Room Session, a scientifically proven machine called a halogenerator disperses micron sized particles of salt into the atmosphere. When inhaled, the salt works like a sponge to absorb bacteria, germs, inflammation and mucus in the sinuses and respiratory tract so the body can expel it.  The salt therapy suite is about 72 degrees, with no humidity. Dry salt air is naturally anti-bacterial + anti-inflammatory. Depending on your current health and personal goals, most feel relief from symptoms as quickly as 1 – 3 sessions.

The Salt Room accommodates four people at a time. By appointment only.

RECOMMENDATIONS 

Prevention is key when it comes to maintaining a healthy immune system. We recommend coming every 1-2 weeks to keep your immune system strong. If already experiencing some symptoms, daily is recommended for the quickest recovery. Please note, the salt room is discouraged when active or contagious and most effective when used for prevention.

RESEARCH

Dr. Alina Chervinskaya from Russia is an expert in the salt therapy field when it comes to the efficacy of salt therapy to treat respiratory diseases. With over 20 years of research, she has published over two hundred articles related to the prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation of patients with respiratory diseases, proving effective long term improvements for the majority of her patients of all ages.

Please visit our Salt Room Website for more research and information.

“I used the salt room and fell in love. I felt awful … 45 minutes later I could already tell a difference and continued to feel better throughout the day”. -Tiffany J.
