Salt Therapy Room
Halotherapy is a drug free, safe, and all natural breathing therapy to support the body’s natural defense system. A halogenerator disperses a salt aerosol into the air, which simulates the salted microclimate of the ancient European salt caves. Throughout a 45-minute session the inhalation of the ionized air benefits the lungs, sinuses, and skin.
Our salt room has 15 thousand pounds of beautiful pink Himalayan crystal salt covering the floors and walls. This salt was directly imported from the salt mine of Pakistan providing the highest quality of salt available. Our zero gravity chairs with pillows and blankets provide a serene atmosphere to sit back and relax.
With each relaxing breath, inhalation of the dry salt micro-particles found inside the salt room provides antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal properties. Inhaling these particles also aids in the thinning of unnaturally thick and sticky mucus. Halotherapy aids in restoring the normal transport of mucous secretion and assists in reducing inflammation in the airway passages to clear and calm an irritated respiratory tract. The salt also falls on the skin which enhances microcirculation and alleviates itching sensations.
A series of salt therapy sessions may lead to better lung function, fewer spasmodic attacks, and a strengthened immune system. It detoxifies your skin leaving a smoother, less irritated appearance. So whatever your health concerns may be, salt therapy will help balance your body and improve your overall well being.
What We Offer
At Bluegrass Salt of Life we aim to find solutions to better your health. Whether it is a salt session, infrared sauna, essential oil protocol or earthing session, we want to help you find your ultimate health.
Heat increases blood flow by expanding the capillaries that carry blood. It also increases oxygenation and regeneration of the blood. Deep detoxification can improve the functioning of all major organs in the body, which depend on blood for energy.
Unlike traditional saunas that operate at extremely harsh temperatures, infrared is a gentle, soothing, and therapeutic heat. Sit back and enjoy an invigorating deep tissue sweat that will leave you feeling refreshed after each session.
By sweating regularly and profusely, toxins are eliminated through sweat and sebaceous glands instead of them coming out via dead skin cells.
Studies have shown that an average infrared sauna session can burn as many as 600 calories while you relax! As your body is working hard to cool itself, an elevation in your heart rate, cardiac output and metabolic rate, causes the body to destroy calories and help you lose weight.
Muscle and joint pain relief
Deep heat helps blood vessels dilate, bringing relief and healing to muscles. Increased circulation provides the transport needed to help evacuate the edema, which can help end inflammation, decrease pain and help speed healing.
Immune system support
The gentle warmth created from the heat of the far infrared sauna raises core body temperature and stimulates the body’s immune system to turn on and get busy producing more white blood cells that can be used to combat any foreign invaders.
What do People
Say About Bluegrass Salt of Life?
I have gone to this establishment a number of times, including several times when I have been struggling to get over a bad cold. It is very relaxing, and when I have congestion it helps me cough it up later in the day. Highly recommended!
LOVE! Lexington, we are so lucky to have the Bluegrass Saltroom and infrared suana! Therapeutic in so many ways -- a quite escape to unwind, relax and meditate -- especially helpful for highly sensitive people. Mineral absorption from the Saltroom seems to have helped expand lung capacity and invite ease to breathing --- as well a reduce allergic response. The infrared sauna has been such a wonderful addition (yes!)-- seems to be especially helpful for sluggish circulation. Thank you for sharing your space and intention with us in Lexington, Bluegrass Saltroom!
Absolutely loved it! You go into a room filled with salt rocks and the music is so calming. It's a relaxing 45min session. Within 10 minutes my sinuses were opening up and I could definitely feel a difference. I bought a lamp on the way out! Will definitely go again.
