Bespoke salt rooms

Enjoy all the benefits of Halotherapy in a custom built salt inhalation cave or salt therapy room designed and built by our experts

The incredible healing atmosphere of bespoke salt rooms such as a salt cave, salt sauna or salt inhalation room has been acknowledged for centuries. Medieval monks used to take the sick to the local salt caves and let them breathe the salt saturated air. The particles were freshly created by the monks crushing the stalactites.

There are 2 primary types of salt room spas we install. These are active and passive. Active salt rooms are called Halotherapy spas and passive are Speleotherapy. Salt room spas can also be dry or wet, with the room being covered in rock salt or tiled. Additionally, there is the salt sauna which has sections of the walls made from blocks of salt. The heated, moist salt interacts with the steam and dissipates into the air.

Types of bespoke salt rooms we design and install

We can provide a specialised salt cave installation or salt inhalation room (Halotherapy spa). Sometimes known as a sea salt spa, these bespoke salt rooms are generally suitable only for larger commercial health or wellness spas due to its size and maintenance.

Salt cave spas or Halotherapy rooms involve tasteless, salt-infused air being pumped into the cave using a dry saline diffuser or halogenerator. A thick layer of salt is also encrusted on the walls. The finished inhalation room is also kept at a constant temperature and humidity level.

Salt therapy rooms use inset panels containing salt blocks with back -lit LED’s that add an extra dimension to spa experience. The LED’s can be a fixed colour or colour changing chroma-therapy lights. The light gleams through the semi-transparent salt blocks.

The main salt therapy comes from salt atomisation spray blown into the environment by a halogenerator. The dry rooms can be fitted with tiled heated recliners with the other three walls and floor being back heated.

A bespoke salt wet room is quite similar to a standard steam room, but with the addition of salt mixed into the steam. Salt wet rooms have been known to have an equally beneficial effect for some asthma sufferers and certain skin conditions.

Wet salt rooms or Japanese salt steam rooms usually keep salt blocks behind glass or clear Perspex. A salt halogenerator then injects the salt into the steam with the addition or aromatherapy scents using mint or eucalyptus to complete the therapy experience.
