What We Do + Our Services
Import, Design & Build
Whether you’re looking to add a unique salt room to your home or business, decorate your existing walls, or are hoping to custom-build a new project from the ground up, our years of experience will help you get just what you’re looking for. There is no project too big or too small. Here are some of our specialities.
Conventional Himalayan Salt Cave
Every salt boulder, brick and tile is meticulously stacked. Reproducing a cave-like atmosphere, the walls are illuminated with serene lighting. Ensuring a unified theme exists between walls and ceiling, all caves feature our traditional stalactite, fibre-optic lights.
A brick walkway often graces the entrance, allowing for wheelchair accessibility, while loose, pink or white salt crystals cover the remaining surface area.
Salt Therapy Room
Salt rooms provide a true digital detox that’s great for smaller spaces. The salt therapy room is cosmetically constructed to emphasize more salt brick and or tile. Select Salt brings agility and flexibility to the table. We work with our clients to maximize their space and revenue-generating capacity.
We design and build salt rooms in as little as 85 square feet of space. Every salt room and salt cave is equipped with a medical grade HaloGenerator.
Massage, Meditation or Yoga Room
Expand your new or existing business with a salt room. We build salt rooms to fit your space. We equip these therapeutic salt sanctuaries with halogenerators. This provides additional salt therapy benefits combined with other treatments. These man-made microclimates are a true synergy between the forces of nature, science and art.
Water-cascades, salt benches, chimneys, skylights are examples of only a few value add features that can add unique charm and ambiance to your salt cave or spa. Each salt cave or salt room Select Salt builds is entirely customizable. Depending on your goals, you may choose to add one or more aesthetic choice to enhance the beauty of your space.
Generally, an application of road salt will “run off” into streams or rivers, and incoming fresh water or rain will wash away any residue. However, the persistent application of road salt every season, year after year, can cause a build up of sodium and chloride in the environment which can become harmful in various ways.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to build a salt cave?
The average salt cave buildout takes 14-18 days, with larger salt caves, above 450 square feet, taking upwards of even 25 days to complete.
How Does Salt Therapy Work?
The halogenerator disperses an active dry salt aerosol via a fan process. The salt aerosol concentration is controlled using optoelectronic sensors within the room. This maintains ideal conditions and proper ventilation flow. Some 80% of the aerosolized salt particles measure less than 5 microns. This allows for effortless absorption by the human body.
Water cascades, typically constructed of softwood and utilizing special equipment, pump salt brine at a slow, steady pace. As the brine evaporates, it produces a saline vapor effect within the cave. This creates a higher concentration of negative ions, naturally found around flowing water or oceanic environments. Learn more about the differences between wet and dry salt therapy.
