The Salt Therapy business opportunity allows you to offer science-backed halotherapy — a holistic therapy practice that offers healing and relief to a wide variety of health conditions for humans and also their pets or animals.
The process is simple: open a salt cave — an artificial cave made with authentic Himalayan rock salt and a medical grade salt aerosol device, otherwise known as a salt room spa.
Halotherapy Growth TrendsThe Halotherapy industry is relatively new to the North American market, and many people are just waking up to this new form of holistic healing.
Owning your own salt cave means little to no overhead, and your work simply entails scheduling appointments for your patrons.
