Himalayan Source responds to COVID-19 with launch of private halotherapy

We designed this private halotherapy experience to help clients feel comfortable returning to spas – it allows spas to offer wellness in an environment that minimises risk for clients
– Ann Brown

Halotherapy equipment supplier Himalayan Source has announced it’s diversified to offer private salt therapy treatments in response to the Coronavirus.

Halotherapy has been suggested as a complementary therapy when treating COVID-19 because salt therapy has anti-bacterial properties and studies have proved it can support relieving symptoms of upper and lower respiratory conditions.

Himalayan Source has developed a concept that uses multiple treatment modalities, which require minimal human contact, to maximise client wellness.

The treatment is designed for one client and features a glowing Himalayan salt wall, a halogenerator which produces pharmaceutical-grade particles of salt and a far-infrared heat therapy mat to be laid on treatment tables.

During the treatment, spa clients will relax on a massage table that provides far-infrared heat therapy, combined with gemstones, pulsed electromagnetic held therapy (PEMF) and LED light therapy, while they enjoy a soothing view of a glowing Himalayan salt wall.

As patients relax on the spa bed, they will breathe in salt particles created by the halogenerator which is claimed to support clients’ respiratory health. Guided meditation rounds out the experience to restore body, mind and spirit.

“We designed this private halotherapy experience to help clients feel comfortable returning to spas,” said Ann Brown, co-founder of Himalayan Source. “During this time of high anxiety it’s crucial we support guest health and wellness in our community.

“This grounding and healing experience allows spas to offer wellness in an environment that minimises risk for clients.”

Himalayan Source stated that the experience can be a standalone treatment with no therapist commission needed or as an add-on in conjunction with a facial or massage.

The new concept is set to debut at Hand and Stone Massage in Del Ray, Florida in June, to add a new therapeutic experience with minimal human contact for spa guests.

Himalayan Source offers a range of salt therapy concepts to complement spa and wellness destinations. Its recent clients include The Langham, New York and Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort & Spa in Jamaica.
