We have a huge appreciation for our local business owners and community resources. Because we have so many incredible small businesses here in South FL, we’ve decided to feature one of our favorites every Friday! To kick off our Favorite Friday series, we want to tell you about The Salt Box.
What is The Salt Box?
To put it simply- The Salt Box is a place designed for high-quality salt therapy. According to their website, “Our goal is to provide you with the finest salt therapy experience in South Florida. As soon as you enter our adult salt therapy room, you are beginning your journey to finding relief from various ailments as well as a temporary escape from our fast paced world. We hope you will find it easy to sit back and relax in our luxurious, leather recliners while surrounded by the finest quality Himalayan salt.”
The Salt Box offers adult and child therapy, with a rooms designed to cater to various levels of therapy. From an adult lounge to a fully-stocked children’s play room, you’ll find what you are looking for.
What is Salt Therapy?
Salt therapy is the process of using natural dry salt to provide benefits such as
- strengthening the immune system
- clearing out sinuses
- improving skin conditions
- helping you recover faster from things like jet lag, exercise, and stress
- slowing down the signs of aging
- helping to improve sleep patterns
Dry salt therapy differs from natural sea air due to the lack of moisture in the air. Dry salt is ground up into dust-fine particles, and diffused in the therapy rooms. When you inhale this salt, and have exposure to your skin, it goes to work healing and soothing the symptoms of various ailments, including sinus problems, eczema, cystic fibrosis, psoriasis, the common cold, and more.
Our Personal Thoughts
The Salt Box is a warm, inviting place, great for going solo or with your kids. The owners are sweet, and the price point is perfect. There are several different membership options available, or you can pay for a single session. Our co-owner, Lily, was just there today (see photos above), and feels like the salt therapy was excellent for her sinuses. “My nose is running a bit now, which is a normal side effect of salt therapy, but my sinuses feel so clear and I can breathe easier,” she said as she was leaving. Her children, age 2 and 5, had a blast playing in the children’s room. All of us at Concierge Doulas love The Salt Box, and all that it offers to the community. We believe it is a valuable resource for anyone who is seeking salt therapy, or who simply wants to relax for a bit.
The Salt Box is located in the Parkland Town Center, off of Parkside Drive. This location is Handicap Accessible, with no stairs in the building. At the entrance to the children’s room, there is a 6″ high piece of wood that could be considered an obstruction. This piece of wood is used to keep the salt inside the ‘sandbox’ style room. Walk-ins are welcome, but booking your session in advance is recommended. Visit their website for more information.
