Halotherapy, better known as salt therapy, is among the fastest growing natural remedies. Though it’s been around new-age circles for a while, salt rooms (or caves), salt tables and salt-infused services from scrubs to stone massages are becoming common and even expected in exclusive spas. The Bamford Haybarn Spa in 1 Hotel South Beach introduced a Himalayan salt table, pictured, for its signature Himalayan salt stone massage and Himalayan salt scrub services. But one doesn’t have to book a salt-themed treatment to request the table, whose therapeutic properties enhance any wellness experience. The spa director added the amenity after studying how Himalayan salt detoxifies, lowers blood pressure and improves respiratory functions and skin conditions. Boca Raton Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort also offers the elixir through its Himalayan salt stone massage. The 75-minute, full-body massage is popular for its extra restorative benefits. The trend has even taken over neighborhood strip malls, as yoga studios feature the amenity, and salt-focused wellness centers pop up. Cür Salt Spa in Jupiter offers a private salt booth as well as a custom sauna that accommodates up to three guests. Dry pharmaceutical-grade salt is ground into micro-particles fine enough to inhale deeply and soften skin. The effect alleviates conditions as diverse as colds, sleep disorders and allergies.
