With home construction and renovation continuing to rise across the country, demand is at an all-time high for wellness products designed to enhance the beauty and functionality of newly imagined spa-like spaces. In response to increased demand, Himalayan Source recently expanded into the residential market and, in doing so, is helping homeowners create the wellness spaces of their dreams.
“We’ve had great success helping spa and hotel owners/managers enhance their treatment rooms, spas and saunas with salt blocks and salt walls and true halotherapy (salt therapy) from Himalayan Source,” says Ann Brown, Himalayan Source partner, who has more than 25 years of experience in the resort spa business. “With homeowners’ desire for personal wellness spaces growing so rapidly during COVID, it was the perfect time to introduce these products to the residential market. The response has been tremendous, and we’re so proud to have these products in wellness spaces within new and existing homes where they can enjoy the benefits every day.”
When Jeremy Jones, principal at Jones Design Associates, a luxury interior design firm based in Atlanta, had a client seeking to redesign a flooded basement, Jones came up with creative ideas for the new space — one of which was to incorporate a Himalayan salt wall separating a heated sauna from the rest of the home’s spa.

“I recommended the salt wall because I was familiar with the health benefits of Himalayan salt but also knew it would be a spectacular backdrop to the renovated space,” Jones says. “Our client was over the moon once everything was installed and operating. Today the spa and the salt wall provide a tranquil and beautiful space to relax and revive.”
Homeowners have taken note of the products as well.
“The salt wall completely exceeded our expectations,” says Angelo Ninivaggi, a homeowner from Fish Creek, Wisconsin, who put in a Himalayan salt sauna through Himalayan Source. “It is not only the highlight of the sauna but a highlight of our new home. In addition to the health benefits of Himalayan salt, it really contributes to the ambiance of the sauna.”
