Himalayan Source Responds to COVID-19 with Launch of Private Halotherapy Experience with Minimal Human Contact for Spa Guests
Helping spas and wellness centers envision new ways of doing business in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Himalayan Source announces a new, private halotherapy experience for clients that minimizes human contact while delivering multiple therapy modalities — turning treatment rooms into salt therapy rooms that maximize client wellness and business revenues. Himalayan Source’s new concept will be piloted by Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa in Delray Beach and is expected to launch June 1, 2020.
Designed for use by one person at a time, Himalayan Source’s private halotherapy experience combines far infrared heat therapy with the benefits of Himalayan salt to create a luxury healing experience with a particular focus on supporting respiratory health with minimal human contact. Designed to be added to any treatment room, the private halotherapy experience may be offered as a standalone treatment with no therapist commission needed or as an add-on/upgrade in conjunction with a facial or massage.
“We designed this private halotherapy experience to help clients feel comfortable returning to spas,” said Ann Brown, co-founder of Himalayan Source. “During this time of high anxiety because of COVID-19, it is crucial that we support guest health and wellness in our community. This grounding, healing salt therapy experience allows spas to offer wellness in an environment that minimizes risk for clients.”
During the private halotherapy experience, a client or member benefits from true halotherapy while enjoying the soothing view of an aesthetically pleasing, glowing Himalayan salt wall. Breathing in pharmaceutical grade particles of salt from a halogenerator, he or she relaxes on a massage table that provides far infrared heat therapy combined with gemstones, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) and LED light therapy. Guided meditation to restore body, mind and spirit rounds out the experience to provide total rejuvenation and recentering.
“Safety has always been a top priority at Hand & Stone. As we prepare to reopen and our guests return for some much needed relaxation, we are thrilled to offer them extra peace of mind with this new halotherapy service offered by Himalayan Source,” said Katherine Chenier, owner of the Delray Beach Hand & Stone franchise that is piloting the new concept.
Combining expertise in Himalayan salt therapy and understanding of ergonomics, human engineering and kinesiology, Himalayan Source offers a full line of Himalayan salt concepts to complement any spa or wellness space. Clients include the Langham New York, Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort & Spa in Jamaica, the Biltmore Miami-Coral Gables, Gaylord National on the Potomac and more.
