The owner, Wanda Bresette, opened Salt of the Earth Halotherapy and Spa as part of her journey to educate people about the benefits of salt therapy. She was diagnosed with emphysema three years ago and was looking for an alternative, natural treatment that didn't include steroids or inhalers.

Through her research, she learned the benefits of salt therapy and began treatment at the Salt Suite in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. She was so impressed with her results that she opened Salt of the Earth Halotherapy and Spa to provide a place in Stuart that would provide access to salt therapy in a tranquil, therapeutic environment.

Around since the 18th century, this natural non-invasive therapy involves inhaling pharmaceutical grade aerosol salt particles, which helps cleanse both the airways and the skin to relieve congestion, inflammation and skin irritations. This pharmaceutical grade of dry salt is antiviral, antimicrobial and antifungal.

Our salt room is encased in pink salt bricks mined in the Himalayan mountains of Pakistan. These mineral-rich salt deposits were created over 250 million years ago when sea levels around the mountain range receded.

The salt particles go deep into the recesses of the lungs. It absorbs impurities from your body and helps break up mucous, so you can cough up toxins. With clean lungs, you get more oxygen, which impacts every organ in your body, and improves overall well-being. Salt also helps to cleanse the airways of smoke, dust, pollutants and other allergens. When the salt lands on the skin, because of its antifungal properties, it can also help to relieve sore, flakey, red and irritated skin.

Consistency is key - regular salt therapy can make breathing become easier, while shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, congestion and irritated skin, and skin conditions, may gradually be alleviated.
