Dry Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy, is a complimentary wellness tool to improve respiratory issues, skin conditions, support detoxification, athletic performance and much more.
At Salt & Light Spa we use 100% pure pharmaceutical grade salt. The dry salt is placed into our state-of-the-art Halogenerator that grinds and disperses the salt into micro-particles in our special built Salt Room. At Salt & Light Spa the Salt Room is specifically built with intentional ventilation, climate controlled temperatures and humidity levels to ensure the exact micro-particles are intentional for your session.
As these salt particles are dispersed into the room, patrons are inhaling these healing salts into the respiratory system and onto the skin’s surface all while you relax, read, rest, or meditate.
Dry Salt Therapy is easy to understand:
1. Sodium chloride (NaCl) Salt is very absorbent
2. Salt is anti-inflammatory
3. Salt is anti-bacterial
Dry Salt once inhaled opens airway passages and significantly reduces inflammation by breaking up and loosening mucous. The Dry Salt absorbs impurities in the respiratory system and on the skin. It naturally removes the allergens, toxins, and bacteria from the lungs and skin. Dry Salt Therapy benefits overall general health, but especially those who have suffered mold exposure, suffer from Allergies, Bronchitis COPD, Asthma, Cystic Fibrosis, and many other respiratory and ENT ailments, as well as skin conditions such as Psoriasis, Eczema, skin rigidity, and Acne.
A Dry Salt Therapy Session lasts 25 minutes. A session must be reserved by scheduling an appointment on our website beforehand. Salt & Light Spa provides a beautiful and spacious room with relaxing music to listen to during your session and comfortable seating.
We offer two Adult Salt Rooms, one of which is ADA compliant and one Kid’s Salt Room. Upon Request, Salt & Light Spa offers private room sessions for your group or family needs.
Salt & Light Spa provides more than just Salt Rooms. We offer Far Infrared Sauna experiences and a Young Living Essential Oil teaching room.
Most Chronic conditions require frequency and consistency for optimum results. It is recommended that Clients start out at 2-4 sessions per week over a 14-21 days period and decrease as they see the benefits and gain more relief over time. Acute conditions may resolve more quickly.
Comfortable street clothing is best to wear for your salt session. Short sleeves and shorts allow skin to be treated.
Dry Salt Therapy is 100% Drug Free and 100% Natural, there are no adverse side effects.
A sign the Salt Therapy is working is to experience a slight cough as the salt disperses throughout the airways and allows the body to expel any mucous. The sessions are very relaxing and allows the body to naturally clear the lungs of toxins. Do not stop any medications your physician has prescribed.
- Depending on the age and the stage of your condition, 20-30 sessions are recommended for long term results. (See studies below.)
- The sessions should be frequent; about two or three a week is suggested.
- For acute and irreversible conditions, two to three-month follow-up sessions are recommended to maintain the clear lungs.
- Monthly preventative and maintenance sessions are strongly recommended as we are bombarded with ions, viruses, bacteria, allergens, and toxins daily.
- For most of our patrons, after a course of Dry Salt Therapy, airways become normal and symptoms disappear.
Dry Salt Therapy is provided all over the globe, most prevalent in Russia, Eastern Europe and Canada, where doctors have routinely prescribed Dry Salt Therapy for patients. Experiencing multiple Dry Salt Therapy sessions allow most people to experience a period of remission from their respiratory and skin conditions.
Below is a detailed list of conditions as well as the suggested number of consecutive sessions, as used in Russian clinics and health spas across the globe. These research numbers should not be treated as a prescription, but rather as suggested guidelines for treatment based on research (see citation below). Patrons of Salt & Light Spa should be attentive to their own unique health needs/conditions and make decisions about treatment based on the way their bodies respond.

Absolutely! Salt & Light Spa welcomes the little children. Dry Salt therapy is 100% drug-free and natural treatment for children and adults. Children as young as 3 months have greatly benefited and responded quickly and effectively to Dry Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy.
Lungs are not fully developed until around the age of 9-years-old. Children are more prone to respiratory issues because their little bodies pick up more viruses and their lungs are not fully developed. Stress, diet, and lifestyle effects our health as adults and is the same for children. Equipping our children with the tools they need to succeed is so important.
A guardian and/or parent is to remain with their child through the entirety of the session and must accompany the child into the room. One guardian/parent receives Free admission accompanying their child. 13 years and younger must be accompanied by their adult.
Family Sessions as well as an ADA compliant room are available. Please contact us to reserve a Family Session.

Excellent Question!! Fairhope sits right on Mobile Bay and just miles from the sugar sand beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. As tranquil as Bay and Beach living are, the salt in the air at the beach is not dry, it is wet and moist.
The salt content in the air is due to evaporation from the Gulf. The salt particles become saturated and can no longer be absorbent. Benefits of wet salt can not be received on a therapeutic level like dry salt therapy can therapeutically benefit the respiratory system.
Dry Salt Therapy is very absorbent and works like a cool toothbrush to adhere and scrub out unwanted pathogens.
No you should not stop taking your medication. Your licensed medical physician who prescribed your medication is the only one who can remove you from taking the medication.
