First Salt Session

PRIOR TO YOUR SESSION

  • If you are new to salt therapy, please schedule a complimentary phone consultation online. The consultation will help us to find out more about you and a plan that best suits your needs.

  • Make sure you are well hydrated prior to your session, as this assists with the action of the salt. Although drinks are not permitted in the salt room, you may bring a drink bottle for after the session.

FOR YOUR SESSION

  • Wear clean comfortable clothing. Clothing needs to be free of dust, dirt, pollen, pet hair, grasses etc. Strong fragrances products such as perfume or spray tan, should not be worn. 
    Arrive 5 to 10 minutes prior to your session so you have enough time to use the rest room if required and get ready for your session.

  • 45 minute sessions run throughout the day in the adult and kids rooms. Depending on the age of your child, shorter sessions are recommended.

  • The rooms are dimly lit and the temperature is maintained around 22°. We have blankets available for your comfort. Please let us know when you attend if you would like a blanket. You will be required to remove your shoes and place booties on and a hair net, which we will provide. This helps to ensure the salt room environment is kept clean and free of any contaminants.

  • Food and drink is NOT permitted in the salt rooms. You may breast feed your child during the session if required. Soiled nappies must be changed immediately.

  • The use of electronic devices is discouraged during the salt session. Salt may cause damage to them and we encourage you to take this opportunity to completely relax and switch off or have a snooze. 

  • Just breathe and relax during your session. There's nothing more you'll need to do as the salt does all the work. By simply breathing, the salt gets deep-down into the lungs to give them a thorough and gentle clean.
  • For skin conditions, please wear clothing that will allow the area of skin to be exposed. If this is your face, we suggest not wearing or removing make-up.

    Please show courtesy for the peaceful enjoyment of all.

AFTER YOUR SESSION

  • Make sure you also hydrate after your session.

  • During and after your session, mucus and phlegm can loosen making it easier to expiate. You may feel worse due to this process, but this is the salt working. Once you clear the mucus you will feel much better and breathe much easier.


We love hearing your feedback, so please remember to let us know how you are doing.

Frequently Asked Questions

DO I NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

Yes. To book a salt therapy session, you will need to have a current plan or 5 session pass. New clients will need to schedule a complimentary consultation.  All appointments can be booked online or by calling (03)5622 1847. Visit our online booking page.

DOES IT INCREASE MY SODIUM LEVELS?

Salt therapy will not affect your sodium level. Breathing in salty air is not the same as ingesting salt.

WHAT ARE NEGATIVE IONS?

Negative ions are elements that are important to our health. The chemical composition of a salt crystal is an ideal source of negative ions, which are generally recognised as a source for creating a sense of well being. Negative ions are in abundance in certain environments, such as near waterfalls, at the beach, after a thunderstorm and in a salt room or cave. Dust, cigarette fumes, electrical appliances, such as TVs, computers, mobile phones, high-voltage networks and external pollutions rob the air of negative ions by creating an excess of positive ions which can create an electrical imbalance in the air and lead to a range of health complaints. High concentrations of negative ions are essential for a positive mood and for high energy levels. Our salt rooms have a high concentration of negative ions.

WHEN SHOULD SALT THERAPY BE AVOIDED?

Although salt therapy is a safe application the treatment is not suitable if you are suffering from any of the following:
- Lung disease
- Influenza/ARVI with fever-haemoptysis
- Active tuberculosis-lung abscess
- Emphysema of the third stage, cardiac insufficiency, kidney disease, lung cancer
- Conditions while contagious

IS SALT THERAPY SAFE FOR PREGNANT WOMEN AND CHILDREN?

Yes, salt therapy is a completely natural and non-invasive therapy, safe for pregnant women and children from 6 months. Buoyant Sea recommends pregnant women discuss all therapies with their GP before attending. We have a designated area with toys for the children to play with during their salt therapy session. Children respond to the salt therapy very effectively. Infants are also most welcome.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO A SALT SESSION?

You can wear any comfortable clean clothing, free from dirt, grass, dust or contaminants. If you are coming straight from work, please ensure you have clean clothing to change into prior to your session. Shoes will need to be removed and protective booties worn into the salt room. We will provide you with the booties and hairnet.

As the salt is inhaled, it travels through the sinuses and respiratory tract absorbing moisture, cleansing, clearing mucus and killing bacteria. Salt has long been known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties as well as helping to loosen mucus build up and phlegm. We recommend bringing tissues to a session to cough into. We can provide you with some tissues if you forget.

HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL BE IN THE ROOM AT A SESSION?

To comply with the covid-19 square meter rule, we can allow up to 6 people in the room per session. We currently allow one family per session in the kids room and although we can have up to 6 people in the adult room, we currently allow 4 people. This may change to comply as restrictions are varied.  A typical salt therapy session lasts for 45 minutes.

CAN I BRING WATER INTO THE SALT ROOM?

The salt rooms are a dry environment. You are welcome to have a drink before and after your session. Strictly no food or fluids are allowed in the rooms due to possible contamination of the floor salt and increase to humidity in the room. We exercise this practice in the best interests of our clients. Please speak to our staff if you have any concerns.

WHAT HYGIENE CONTROLS ARE IN PLACE?

Booties, hairnets and hand sanitiser are used by every participant. The rooms are ventilated after each session to ensure a change of air. The salt in the air and on the floor also acts as a natural antibacterial/antiviral. Additional covid-19 measures include, chairs covers (changed after each client) and hard surfaces are cleaned using viraclean. Clients will be unable to participate whilst feeling unwell, running a high temperature or when they are likely to be in a contagious state of any illness.

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS?

Salt therapy is 100% natural, safe, and a drug free treatment that has no known associated negative side effects. Some people may experience a mild skin irritation that will disappear after a few sessions. Some may notice a mild taste of salt on their lips, while others may experience a mild tickle in their throat, which can be easily treated by sipping warm water after the session.

HOW MANY SESSIONS WILL I NEED TO DO?

The number of salt therapy sessions required to see an improvement in a particular condition varies from person to person and will depend on your condition, age, and general health. Some people use salt therapy purely as a preventative measure to avoid common colds and flu and other respiratory viruses. Others like to use it as an effective complimentary treatment method for a specific condition, such as asthma, bronchitis or emphysema. It is hard to predict how many salt therapy sessions each person will need. On average clients see an improvement in their condition in as little as 2 salt therapy visits, but some clients many take up to 6 – 10 visits. Generally clients with respiratory conditions often feel an improvement in breathing after one to two sessions. Skin disorders may take a little longer to respond with reduction in swelling and itching.
