Halotherapy Setting Delivers Restorative Benefits of Dry Himalayan Salt

CHARLOTTE, NC –October 6, 2017 – The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Charlotte has dramatically expanded its wellness offering, as a new women’s Salt Vault officially opens today for spa treatment guests. Presenting the only salt therapy experience in central Charlotte, the Salt Vault replicates the healing and restorative benefits found in natural salt caves and grottos – where salt’s impacts have been proven to improve and enhance skin, breathing, allergy resistance and general wellness. 

Salt chambers are among the most sought-after new wellness destinations in the U.S., and the Salt Vault presents this experience with an added element of Ritz-Carlton luxury. Treatment guests can relax in the Vault while fine, Pink Himalayan Salt is dispersed into the environment in invisible, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial dry particles. From fighting allergies and colds to enhancing skin and anti-aging abilities, this industry-leading halotherapy experience is provided at a comfortable room temperature, with a lounging bench available to provide the ultimate in relaxation.

The average time spent in a salt chamber is 30-45 minutes, but spa treatment guests of The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Charlotte are invited to spend as much time as they like in the Salt Vault, making it a great complimentary add-on to a woman’s massage, facial or body treatment. For men or women treatment guests wishing to benefit from halotherapy’s powers without adding time to their visit, the spa has also placed two Himalayan Salt towers in its co-ed Relaxation Lounge -- one of the most popular gathering spots in the hotel’s two-story penthouse spa. Beneficial negative ions from the ambient salt add to the wellness effects of this popular pre- and post-treatment location. Additionally, the spa boutique will offer a selection of salt therapy products to take home and enjoy, with the new retail items containing pure Himalayan salt and 100-percent essential oils.

Area residents booking spa treatments enjoy complimentary valet parking and full access to the facilities on the day of their visit. For treatment reservations, please call 704-547-2244. The Ritz-Carlton Spa is located at 201 East Trade Street, at the corner of Trade and College Streets in the heart of Charlotte, North Carolina.
