Salt — pure, natural salt – has some surprising properties when it comes to your health. I had the chance to indulge in some dry salt therapy at the Intown Salt Room and the experience was unforgettable!
Meditation can help you relax, de-stress and get clarity – if you can find time to do it. I love, love, love the idea of a soothing, centering practice that helps lift my mood and lower stress (yes, please), but actually doing meditation is different.
Getting to spend some time in the Intown Salt Room meditation space was truly amazing. Once you are ensconced in this quiet, soothing spot, you can reflect and relax without distraction. The pure salty air just feels healthy (and it is); in just a half hour, my head felt clear and I felt ready to tackle just about anything. The silence and lack of interruption and distraction (goodbye, cell phone) meant that I could just focus and be; the exact goal of meditation time.
Breathe it In
If you’re busy and constantly on the go, simply sitting in one of the comfortable lounge chairs and breathing in the dry salt feels a little weird at first — but I got over it, fast. Once you settle in and realize you can be alone with your own thoughts and contemplations, the experience is truly amazing. The salt room’s soothing ambiance works on you quickly — in minutes I was breathing deeply (like the real yoga breaths you’re supposed to do throughout the day) — and feeling relaxed. At the end of the 30 minute session, I felt calm and happy; it is surprisingly uplifting.
If you find yourself hiding in the bathroom from the kids or pets, multitasking your day away or simply overdoing it, then a visit to the Intown Salt Room will be an eye-opener for sure. You won’t realize how much interaction, distraction and stimulation you encounter every minute of every day until you totally remove them. The difference is amazing and life changing!
In just a little over an hour, I was able to relax and find some balance; I left Intown feeling cheerful and upbeat and ready to tackle anything. The difference between understanding the benefits of breathing and meditation and actually taking the time to do so in this rich dry salt environment is truly amazing. I rank this visit right up there with a top quality massage session or spa treatment in terms of relaxation. I will definitely be back!
Intown Salt Room is located at 563 Memorial Dr., Unit CU-A in Atlanta next door to Doc Chey’s Noodle House. See ya in the Salt Room!!!
Disclaimer: Intown Salt Room compensated me with a salt room experience in exchange for my opinion, however all thoughts (and blissful relaxation) are my own.
Oh wow, you lucky thing. This sounds wonderful. I’d love to indulge in a little relaxation whilst the children are at school.
What an amazing way to relax. This seems so spiritual and a new way to get the benefits of salt. I will look for a spa near me that does this.
Well that looks comfortable and awesome. I would totally do this just so that I can have a little relaxation to myself.
Now this dry salt room thing going on I have never heard of at all. It hasn’t reached where I live. Interesting to read.
If someone came in to massage me as well, I would NOT have a problem with that – LOL!
Interesting! I have not tried anything like this before. I should! I need to relax a bit and this sounds lovely.
This is something new to me as I’ve never heard of it. I would love to try that though, sounds very relaxing.
I would love to visit the Salt Room. This looks like an amazing experience and would be perfect to add to my itinerary when i do visit Atlanta.
I’ve never tried a salt room treatment but they sound amazing and I totally want to. This space looks sooo relaxing!
I’ve heard so many good things about these salt rooms. I haven’t tried one yet but I hope to very soon.
I have been hearing a lot about salt caves and salt rooms lately. I am really intrigued by this.
The room is beautiful and it sounds like you had a wonderful experience.
That sounds like a really peaceful experience. I would have loved something like that when all of my kids were young.
Dry salt therapy seems to be so relaxing. I would like to experience that with my best friend!
My friends and I are huge spa buffs and so we would totally enjoy an experience like this. I’ll have to see if we have something like this in my area.
I’ve never heard of this before but it sounds interesting. I’ll have to check out if we have any locally.
Wow! what an amazing experience. I’ve always wanted to visit a salt room. I bet you felt amazing afterwards.
What a great experience! This is the first time I’ve heard of it and I really want to try it.
I didn’t know this was a thing until recently! I need to find a spa near me that provides this so I can try it out!
