Halotherapy equipment supplier Himalayan Source has partnered with two US medical wellness clinics to enhance their guest journey and treatment outcomes. Halotherapy – known as salt therapy – is claimed to benefit respiratory health and skin ailments as well as supporting the immune system and improving athletic performance. Himalayan Source has teamed up with two locations – LifeGaines Med Spa in Boca Raton, Florida, and Kuya in Austin, Texas – and equipped both with a halogenerator and a Himalayan salt wall. Now, guests undergoing IV therapy can upgrade their experience with halotherapy and inhale pharmaceutical-grade salt as they recline during their treatment. Dr Richard Gaines, chief medical officer of LifeGaines, said: “By combining our wellness protocols and IV therapies with salt therapy, we’ve taken our medical spa to the next level. “Our guests are not only loving the health benefits of salt therapy but immediately feeling a sense of relaxation when relaxing by the beautiful salt wall.” Himalayan Source says the treatment combination offers a convenient way to upsell IV treatments without the need for additional staffing.
The team anticipates that the new revenue stream will boost profits by an additional 20 per cent.
Himalayan Source estimates that on average these installations require between 400-1,000sq ft of floor space and cost between US$15,000-40,000 (£11,830-31,546, €13,796-36,788) to create.
