Salt Room Opens in Woodbury
The Salt Room, in Woodbury, recently opened for business at 2110 Eagle Creek Lane, Suite 350. It features a yoga room, relaxation room and children’s room, all designed to offer visitors the health benefits of breathing in salt air.
Owner Gloria WahrenBrock says that some of the benefits include relief from asthma, dermatitis, allergies, sinus infections, colds, flu, coughs, emphysema, ear infections, cystic fibrosis and COPD. All rooms are covered with pharmaceutical-grade salt, pulverized into fine dust and also pumped into the air. Visitors can relax, listen to music, read or recline in an anti-gravity chair while they naturally breathe in microscopic salt particles.
She explains that European salt caves have long been used to treat a variety of respiratory and skin conditions. Salt is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial, and helps with mucus clearance by decreasing the thickness and allowing it to be expelled.
WahrenBrock, who had been diagnosed with bacterial pneumonia, visited a salt room in Florida, and says that immediately afterward she noticed an improvement in her breathing. “After three sessions in one week, I was back on the golf course,” she says. “This is what inspired me to open The Salt Room in Minnesota.”
Cost: $35 adults; $20 children. Memberships and session packs are available. 2110 Eagle Creek Ln, Ste 350, Woodbury. For more information, call 651-436-1725 or visit SaltRoomWoodbury.com.
