We love providing services that can benefit the mind, body, and soul here in Philadelphia and our halotherapy or salt therapy is one great way to relax and also give your body some benefits as well.

Think of how you breathe better and also feel better when you are near the ocean, did you realize it may be because of the salt? This idea has been around for centuries of using salt to help with breathing and other ailments and we are here to provide this service to our Philadelphia float fam.

Beyond breathing, salt therapy also can help you relax and can benefit some skin conditions and allergies.
