The halo session is where salt particles and infrared waves join forces to give your body some real goodness.
Halotherapy was “discovered” in Eastern Europe in the 1800s by physicians who found salt miners seemed healthier and got fewer respiratory ailments. Since then it has evolved rapidly and of course humans developed a fancier way to soak in the salt – enter, the halo session here at Vortex. Think “salt cave”, but make it sleek, modern, private and turn up the heat.
This session adds low-intensity infrared heat to warm the body and help open your pores and give you the maximum benefit of the salt. The infrared heat is lower than an infrared session (around 102°F). The lower heat still gives you the benefits of infrared waves, but doesn’t get you so sweaty that the salt is just rolling off your body and negating any of its positive effects.
So, basically this is like a private, heated salt cave.
It kinda feels like you’re hanging out on a warm summer day by the ocean.
As you breathe, the salt particles dance around and are inhaled into the upper and lower respiratory system and absorbed by the skin. Since salt is highly absorbent it acts like a sponge and draws out moisture, mucus and impurities, kills microbes and helps with inflammation in both the airways and on the skin. Halo sessions have also been shown to greatly assist with skin issues like acne, rosacea, eczema, and psoriasis.
It helps to expand the airways and allow for deeper breathing, accelerating the transport of mucus and the elimination of foreign allergens to help bolster the immune system.
While the salt it doing its thing, the infrared waves are penetrating your skin, muscles, joints and tissues to help improve your circulation, oxygen flow, and give your body a gentle detox by helping to remove impurities on a cellular level.
While you’re enjoying the salt and a light sweat, you can tune in to music, meditation, or good ol’ Netflix if you’re looking to zone out and relax.
Take a deep breath and feel the warmth of wellness!
