The Salt House utilises a specialised and medically approved device known as a Halo Generator, to grind pure New Zealand pharmaceutical grade sea salt into microscopic particles that are dispersed throughout the salt room.

While you sit back and relax in the lounge chairs, this incredible technology is constantly checking the microclimate parameters to keep the salt room at the recommended salt saturation levels. The dry salt aerosol environment is agile and fast responsive to various factors such as individual respiratory volumes, current temperature, humidity, air pressure and velocity.

Halotherapy is a complementary therapy that is intended to be used alongside conventional treatment, and does not replace standard medical practices. Results may vary between clients and we recommend you discuss the use of Halotherapy with your Doctor

Halotherapy is quite simply, breathing in salt air for therapeutic benefits.

It has been practised in various European countries since the mid 1800’s and is known as Speleo (salt cave) Therapy. With the assistance of technology, Halotherapy has evolved over the generations into modern day above-ground salt rooms designed for gentle respiratory and skin hygiene, as well as supporting general health, well-being and relaxation.

Salt House utilises only the best pure New Zealand Sea Salt...

Salt House utilises a TGA medically approved Halo Generator with laser diode, and 99.7% pure pharmaceutical grade New Zealand sea salt to deliver this unique experience.

Salt rooms have traditionally replicated the look and feeling of a salt mine or cave, however Salt House has cleverly designed the beautiful space to reflect the openness and relaxed feeling of being beachside. Utilising natural finishes, high ceilings and glass, the salt room room is truly special and is most definitely a relaxing space.

Halomed is the world's leading Halotherapy generator technology

Our floor is covered in over a ton of New Zealand’s best sea salt (which feels nice and scrunchy under foot) and the kids will just love building their ‘salt castles’ in the salty kids corner. With the room temperature controlled between 19°-24° and the chilled out music playing in the background, all you have to do is sit back, relax and breath in all the salty goodness.

The effects of skin hygiene has been associated with reduced inflammation and a reduction in the recurrence of infection. Conditions such as Acne, Eczema and Psoriasis can be relieved with the support of Halotherapy.

The fine salt particles resemble fog and when this makes contact with your skin, it may assist to improve skin health and relieve the symptoms of certain skin conditions. The fine salt particles are absorbent, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial; creating exfoliation, breaking down scaly skin and assists with the sloughing process of dead skin.  If you’re treating a skin condition, we recommend to start gently and expose a small area of skin in the first session. This is to gauge how the salt particles feel on your skin during the session and to check for any reactions afterwards. From there we can tailor the salt session to suit your individual sensitivity

Halotherapy promotes mucociliary clearance of the Respiratory System. It works as a gentle brush to clean airways and lungs of mucus, allergens, pollutants and other debris. This gentle respiratory hygiene can assist the body with Allergies and Hay Fever; Asthma and Bronchitis; Colds and Flu Symptoms; Ear Cleansing; Sinusitis; Snoring and Sleeping Problems.

When the minute salt aerosol particles enter the respiratory system, they gently stimulate the body’s natural action of cilia movement. This promotes expectoration of mucus from the lungs, sinuses and wax from the ear canal. Halotherapy utilises the inhalation of minute salt particles that can absorb oedema from swollen mucosa linings in the sinus and respiratory tract and open up airways.

 

Sodium chloride aerosol delivered via the controlled Halo Generator, can change the consistency of mucus, making it thinner, less sticky and easier for the body to expel. Combined with its potential to stimulate cilia movement, sodium chloride is an important contributor to airway clearance.
