The Salt Room at Waterside Day Spa
There are less than 10 salt rooms in Colorado and just over 100 in the U.S. Many hospitals in Europe and most in Russia have salt rooms. They’re used to treat a variety of skin and respiratory conditions. Numerous medical research articles report salt therapy as safe and effective for treating asthma, allergies, bronchitis, COPD, cold/flu, eczema and psoriasis. A natural disinfectant, salt is antimicrobial and antibacterial. The negatively charged ions in salt are said to improve health and mood. You can recharge your body and mind at Waterside Day Spa, the only salt room in Steamboat.
