  • Less than 200 years ago, the earth’s atmosphere was comprised of 40% oxygen; today the air we breathe is only 21%
  • Lack of oxygen in our atmosphere is due to pollution and destruction of the ozone layer
  • Every day we take 20,000 breaths
  • Research shows that our lung capacity decreases 5% with every decade of life
  • Our brain requires 20% of the body’s oxygen needs even though it only makes up 2% of our total mass
  • Blood is the carrier of oxygen that fuels all systems, stimulates chemical reactions, and cleans itself of toxins

Salt Cabin

Dry salt therapy (halotherapy) is a holistic treatment that uses salt’s natural antibacterial properties, anti-inflammatory benefits, ability to remove airborne pollens, mucolytic effects, and reduction of oversensitivity reactions. Improve your skin, your breathing, and your health with one great treatment!

Salt Cabin $25/30 minute session, $10/each additional person - Four person maximum

Salt therapy is similar to spending time in the salty sea air, and can help improve:

  • Mood
  • Immune system
  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Allergies
  • Skin conditions
  • COPD
  • Asthma
  • Sinus issues
  • Stress levels
  • Acne
  • Nervous system
  • Lymphatic Systems

Are there any side effects?

Normally there are no side effects. Some people might experience a scratchy throat or a tickle in their sinuses. Others who might be slightly more sensitive could experience minor skin irritation, which tends to go away after a session or two. For those who experience a slight cough, this is a sign that salt therapy is effectively working. The body is loosening and releasing all the mucus buildup.

What kind of salt is used?

99.99% pure sodium chloride (Pharmaceutical grade salt). It contains no fillers or caking agents. It comes from a natural source, and it is naturally processed to remove all of its impurities. It’s the same salt that hospitals use and is the same type of salt used in all research. We do not recommend Himalayan or sea salt as it is not stripped of all the impurities. There could be dirt, clay, or debris that could be harmful to the lungs. It’s very healthy for the digestive system but not for the respiratory system.

What results can I expect?

Many patients who have asthma, allergies, and other bronchial issues have seen some amazing results in a short period of time. Breathing became easier; more energy was experienced, and they experienced an overall improved quality of life. We don’t make any medical claims about dry salt therapy, but after receiving a 45-minute treatment, patients’ respiratory issues and lung function have vastly improved. In addition, those who have severe skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, or acne have also had incredible improvements in the health of their skin.

Ionized Foot Detox

Over a series of sessions, this foot detox can cleanse your body of toxins. Your feet will be placed in water with a positive ionic charge. Negative ions in the body are attracted to the positive ones in the water, pulling heavy metals and other toxins out of your body through your feet. This treatment has been shown to decrease pain and lower cholesterol levels.

Ionized Foot Detox $30/30 minutes

Will I be completely detoxed after 1 visit?

A full detox is a total of 14 visits, typically once a week for 30-60 minutes but not more than once every 3 days.

What can I expect to feel during and after my foot detox session?

During your detox session, you may feel a gentle tingling sensation. After the footbath, it is typical to feel relaxed and have heightened mental clarity and a greater sense of wellbeing. Some people find that they sleep better while others that are experiencing chronic joint and muscle pain report immediate relief.

What does the color change in the water mean?

The water in the basin changes to a brownish color due to a reaction between the array, salt, water, minerals, and impurities in the water. The colors are also affected by oils being released from the sebaceous glands, dead skin, and the user’s own acidity. Some of the neutralized toxins will also exit the body through the pores of the feet through osmosis. Particular colors may indicate accumulated toxins in certain areas or from certain conditions that the ionic detox is helping to clear. As everyone responds differently to the detox, a provided color chart describes what areas were most affected during your session.

What can I expect after my detox?

As the detox process can dehydrate the body, be sure to rehydrate after your appointment by drinking plenty of water. Staying well hydrated will also help the body flush out any unreleased toxins. This treatment can also temporarily lower the electrolytes in the body, so it is best to plan for some additional relaxation time immediately following your treatment.

How should I prepare for my session?

Treatments take place on the massage table (fully clothed), so dress comfortably. Please remove any jewelry prior to your session. Also, be mindful of others and arrive free of heavy smoke and perfumes.

What can I expect from my Reiki session?

Your time on the table allows you to completely relax with the help of the practitioner. Because we are all so uniquely different, we never know what will come up in a session. Your thoughts, emotions, actions, and traumas both emotional and physical have the most powerful effect on your overall health no matter how insignificant they may seem. Stirring your senses while deeply relaxing, your sessions can help balance you on an emotional and physical level as they are both connected. Try to allow yourself some extra time at the closing of your session to process thoughts and emotions without being rushed.

Chakra Cleansing

The seven chakras are energy centers in the body that regulate all functions from organs to emotions. Located from the base of the spine to the crown of the head, the chakras are the keys to a healthy life. If one of the chakras is blocked, the flow of energy through the centers is stopped. This can cause feelings of disconnectedness, decreased motivation, and even depression. Left untreated, physical symptoms like headaches or stomach upset can occur. Cleansing the chakras will eliminate the blockage and facilitate the flow of energy.

What are chakras? Chakras Cleansing is offered at $60.

The Chakra system is an ancient way of viewing the body in which it is divided into seven zones, each area having energy that must flow freely. When the chakras are in balance the entire body works in harmony and we feel energized, centered and whole.

Each of the 7 chakras has a corresponding color, earth element, location in the body, relative body functions and an emotional purpose.

  • Root
  • Sacral or pelvic
  • Solar plexus
  • Heart
  • Throat
  • Third Eye
  • Crown

How is a chakra cleansing performed?

Chakra cleansing can be performed in a number of ways, including reiki and crystal cleansing. Reiki will gently open, realign, cleanse, and balance the energy flowing through the chakras. Crystals heal holistically by drawing out negative energy to positively impact your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. Specific crystals and minerals are placed on or around the body relative to acupuncture points, meridians, or on chakras. Through their ability to hold and emit energy vibrations, crystals can absorb, focus, direct, and diffuse our energy fields to enable our bodies to rebalance to their natural energy rhythms.

Infrared Sauna

Our infrared sauna uses light waves to raise the core body temperature, resulting in a detoxifying effect. The sauna operates at a lower temperature than a traditional sauna, yet the heat penetrates more deeply to allow a more intense sweat — and is more comfortable than other saunas. Benefits include improved circulation, weight loss, and pain relief.

Infrared Sauna $25/30 minute session or $15 as an add-on to other services

Infrared Sauna Benefits:

  • Weight loss and increased metabolism
  • Muscle pain relief
  • Immune system boost
  • Detoxification
  • Improves the appearance of cellulite
  • Ease joint pain and stiffness
  • Stress and fatigue reduction
  • Improves skin
  • Improves heart function
  • Helps lower chronic pain, including arthritis

How safe is infrared heat?

Infrared heat is a naturally occurring output of the sun but it does not contain the harmful UV rays, so there is no risk of burning. Some individuals should take precautions, including children, the elderly, and those who are pregnant. If you have any concerns regarding your use of the sauna, we recommend checking with your physician before scheduling your appointment.

What is the difference between infrared and traditional saunas?

Traditional saunas heat the air in excess of 200℉ which can make the experience uncomfortably hot for the user. Infrared heat is very gentle and works at a much more comfortable operating temperature of 100-150℉. This type of heat penetrates human tissue and heats from the inside making infrared saunas seven times more effective at detoxifying the body than traditional saunas. By raising the body ’s core temperature, infrared saunas can produce a sweat composed of 20% toxins versus the 3% produced by traditional saunas.

What can I expect after my sauna session?

After your sauna treatment, your body will continue to sweat out toxins for 30 minutes following your session. We recommend that you allow yourself time to begin naturally cooling down before taking a lukewarm shower. As your pores will remain open for some time following your sauna treatment, your body will be more susceptible to any toxins in the water, so allow them to close naturally to reduce your exposure.

The sauna typically gets to around 130℉, and although you may not sweat as much as you expect, you should stay well hydrated and make sure to replace electrolytes.

Nutritional Support

Our nutritional support services focus on providing patients with accountability, recipes, and goal setting. Through weekly check-ins and workshops, we will help you reach your weight loss goals, and provide you with the dietary education you deserve.
