Initially, six sessions spaced closely together will maximize the effect. The results vary greatly among individuals and the condition that is being treated. Some conditions and milder symptoms will improve or dissipate within just a couple of sessions. You may even feel relief after one session; however, for the best results we recommend a series of treatments.

Those with chronic conditions most likely need to come several times a week for the first 6-8 weeks. Those who come for stress relief and relaxation simply come as often as they like. For many conditions, after a series of sessions, symptoms subside and relief can last for several months before another session is needed. It can also be used as a preventative measure to strengthen the immune system against colds, cough, allergies, and sinusitis.

Mostly, sit back in our super comfy zero gravity chairs, listen to relaxing music or a meditation audio and breathe deeply.  Many clients fall asleep and awaken very refreshed.

Salt Room walls and floor are covered in layers of salt. In the adult suite you will have comfortable recliners to relax in. The lights will dim and you can choose to listen to relaxing music, read a book or magazine, meditate, or simply rest. The temperature and humidity in the rooms are controlled to provide an optimal experience.

You will find pure relaxation and tranquillity away from your everyday stress leaving you rejuvenated and fully energized. The children’s suite is designed to bring fun and enjoyment with toys, books, and puzzles while they receive their salt therapy treatment. All sessions will be 45 minutes.

It is definitely safe for children. There are no potential harmful effects. The treatment is completely natural and in fact, children often respond to treatment faster than adults. At Kilkenny Salt Therapy , we have both an Adults’ and Children’s therapy rooms. Children can play with toys while receiving the benefits of salt therapy.

In cases with an individual that is highly sensitive they can experience slight skin irritation or red patches; however, they go away after a few sessions. If you experience increased coughing due to mucous buildup that means the salt therapy treatment is working. This is the body’s natural way of draining the mucous buildup.

No. We recommend to continue your medications as you need and as directed by your doctor. Since salt therapy is all-natural it does not have any interactive effects with medications. Often, individuals who undergo salt therapy will find that they are less dependent on certain medication and that their symptoms are less frequent and less severe.

Salt naturally absorbs bacteria. The walls and floor of the rooms in the Salt Room are covered with salt which creates an almost sterile environment. In addition, our ventilation system works throughout the entire session to circulate the air in the room, exhausting used air out and clean, fresh air in. There is no recycling of air back into the rooms. Chairs, tables, toys, books, and magazines are wiped down frequently.
