MIDLAND, MI — The Salt House, a new business offering holistic halotherapy in Saginaw Township, is expanding into the Midland market. The Salt House opened its first location at 2735 Bay Road in October. It offers halotherapy in a cave-like environment, Himalayan salt lamps, cooking salts, bath salts, and other salty goods.
Now, there are plans to expand.
“We are excited to announce that we’re opening a second location in Midland, we will keep everyone updated on our progress, The Salt House/Midland coming late spring of this year,”.
Halotherapy, also known as dry salt therapy, is a holistic therapy said to offer health, fitness, and wellness benefits.
Business owner Scott Williams also owns Scott Medical Equipment, 2750 Bay Road. He says halotherapy can benefit people who have asthma, allergies, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, respiratory infections, sinusitis, and other ailments.
“A 45-minute session is like spending three days on the beach,” he said.
The “cave” is dimly lit. The floor is covered with Himalayan salt. Tranquil music fills the air. During a 45-minute halotherapy session, a machine called a halogenerator pumps a dry salt aerosol made with pharmaceutical-grade salt into the cave through a vent from an adjacent room.
“It’s been practiced overseas for decades,” Williams said, noting that halotherapy is gaining popularity in California, some southern states, and Florida.
He said clinical studies, primarily conducted outside of the United States, have shown patients do reap benefits from halotherapy.
“There’s a lot of science behind it. It’s new to us, but it’s not a new therapy,” he said.
