Imagine entering a quiet place filled with Himalayan salt, one of the purest forms of salt found on the planet. These pink salts have been known for centuries to have incredible healing benefits. At Modrn Salt, a luxury salt room located in the Modrn Sanctuary wellness center, you can now enjoy these ancient rituals to fix the soul and the body. Simply sit back in a zero gravity reclining chair and listen to guided relaxation music, while your mind floats away and your body recharges itself.

Inside the room, a halo-generator crushes up small particulates of salt that are then blown into the air. You are surrounded with walls of salt and at your feet, heated salt releases negative ions, which reduce free radicals in the body.

Hundreds of color changing LED bulbs in the room increase the therapeutic benefits to help your mind really unwind. After 45 minutes in the Salt Room, I felt incredibly light, energetic, relaxed, more alert and serene. My mind wandered off to another place, and I was cleansed of negative thoughts and stress.

If you suffer from allergies or hay fever, sinus infections, migraine headaches, asthma attacks, or a low immune system, a visit in the Salt Room can decrease these symptoms. It is also effective for skin problems, such as eczema, psoriasis or acne.

Take a break from your busy day to regenerate and rediscover your inner peace at the Modrn Salt.
