There are many types, styles and ways to design and build a salt room, which can be of varying sizes and shapes. A salt room can be made for use by one person at a time or as a group treatment area. Typically, effective salt rooms are not more than 440 square feet/40 square meters, given the capacity of most halogenerators.
A salt room can be built from an empty shell or by transforming an existing room, as a stand-alone business, or as an add-on to an existing spa/wellness center, massage room, yoga studio, chiropractic treatment room, or any health care facility. Building a salt room can seem deceptively simple, but there are several factors to consider during the designing and building process. Given that this is a relatively new industry for many people, there are aspects to creating a salt environment that some may not know or understand... from landlords and general contractors to architects and interior designers.

The interest in salt therapy and the health benefits it provides is growing rapidly, making it one of the most promising additions to any spa, wellness center, fitness center, etc. Right now, there is a largely untapped market for this increasingly popular treatment, with a non-competitive market and open territories that provide opportunities to be the first in your area to offer this service.
Low Start-Up & Labor Costs
With low start-up costs and initial investment, the potential returns on this addition to your facility are accelerated and ongoing. The cost of maintenance and labor is minimal, and no special licensing or certification is necessary.
Halotherapy rooms are generally communal, so you can offer treatment to several clients at once. The average salt therapy treatment lasts for 45 minutes, and the charge averages between $30-$45 per person for adults. Charges can be lower for children and seniors. Promotions on the benefits to those with respiratory, rheumatory and skin conditions can determine and improve your capacity/number of treatments per day. Over 34 million Americans suffer from asthma and 50 million suffer from allergic rhinitis, with millions who have arthritis, psoriasis and other ailments that are responsive to halotherapy. The interest and demand for these therapy facilities have grown exponentially since the early 2000s.

The Real Housewives of Orange County filmed an episode on location at Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort & Spa in Jamaica, including a scene lounging in the beautiful salt lounge from Himalayan Source!
After researching the vast benefits of salt therapy and being drawn to the absolute beauty of this calming natural element, I was extremely passionate about bringing aspects of Himalayan salt to the Grande Spa.
Bringing both Ann and Stewart to Jamaica to see the space and conceptualize the necessary build-out with our project manager and contracted team was integral. Ann provided phenomenal experiential concepts for the salt lounge guest experience while Stewart provided the underlying functions and engineering support to see the vision through.
This team provided immense support and follow-up — on the ground, over the phone, and with back-and-forth emails and documentation. They helped our team understand how to create something brand new and be proud of the efforts from learning from the creators. It's a very special space and a dream come true. Guests never want to leave.
Enhancing our sauna with the benefits of the Himalayan salts not only adds another layer of health benefits but it creates an esthetic to the environment and a sense of calmness.
The wellness benefits along with the esthetics of the pure salt really create a sense of place and calmness for our guests.
