Bluegrass Salt of Life Located in Nicholasville, KY
When can I expect inside the salt room?
Our salt room is covered in thousands of pounds of beautiful pink Himalayan salt. The room's temperature and humidity is maintained for optimal treatment conditions. Temperature ranges from 68-72 degrees.
What should I wear during a salt therapy session?
Please come in comfortable clothing and refrain from wearing perfumes or any scents, as other people may be sensitive or allergic. You will be provided a bouffant hair cover, to protect our salt floor from loose hair particles, which must be worn at all times inside the salt room. You may enter the salt room barefooted or if you prefer to keep your shoes on, shoe covers are available and must be worn at all times inside the salt room.
How long is a salt therapy session?
Should I stop using my prescribed medication during salt therapy?
No. Salt therapy is a complementary therapy option for individuals and not a replacement for medical treatment. Advice and prescription medication from your doctor should always be followed. Halotherapy is all natural and does not have interactive effects with medications so there is no need to stop any prescribed medications.
Should I worry about catching illnesses from other people?
No. In our salt room the walls and floor are covered with salt that creates a virtually sterile environment. One of the natural properties of salt is that it absorbs bacteria. Surfaces in the salt room, such as chair armrests, are wiped frequently. After each session the room is ventilated for 15 minutes so fresh air is available for each session.
How many salt therapy sessions will I need?
Every individual responds differently to salt therapy and therapeutic results may vary. Experience depends on the type and severity of the condition, but generally 15-30 sessions within 8 weeks will be effective for conditions like asthma, allergies, sinus issues, and psoriasis. Fewer sessions may be needed for relief of the common cold, ear infections, and flu symptoms. It is possible for you to have some relief or feel improvement after just one session, but completing a series of salt room sessions is recommended for longer-term results.
Are there side effects?
Salt therapy has very few side effects that rarely occur. In some cases individuals have reported a slight skin irritation that disappear after a few sessions. Coughing or a tickle in the throat is not uncommon especially when a lot of mucous is present in the respiratory tract. This is the body’s way of draining mucous buildup.
Is salt therapy safe for children?
Yes. Salt therapy is not only safe, but also highly recommended for children. Generally children respond salt therapy faster than adults. Halotherapy can benefit children as young as 6 months of age.
Can I bring my cell phone or other electronics into the salt room?
We do not recommend you bring any form of electronics into the salt room. No cell phone conversations should take place inside the salt room. Bluegrass Salt Room cannot be responsible for any damaged electronics that are brought into the salt room.
Can salt therapy help if I don’t have any respiratory or skin conditions?
Yes, absolutely. Salt therapy can be used as a preventative measure against colds and allergies and to help strengthen the immune system. Salt therapy may help athletes looking to enhance their performance by increases lung capacity. Salt releases negative ions into the air that helps with stress reduction and promotes relaxation. For these purposes sessions can be taken as many times as desired and as often as you like.
