Combining Salt Therapy with Healing Yoga Postures and Breath work
BeWell offers Marquette’s first salt therapy room where pure salt is dispersed into the air helping to alleviate respiratory conditions like asthma and allergies, skin ailments such as eczema and acne, relieve muscular soreness, combat depression and anxiety, boost the immune system, and aid in overall relaxation. An optional light therapy panel is also offered in the salt room to provide full spectrum light that safely mimics sunshine during the long UP winter months where we are often deprived of natural light and Vitamin D.
Along with the benefits of salt and light therapy, we additionally offer private yoga sessions with Amanda Hofacker in the salt room to facilitate even greater healing and relaxation. Yoga postures, and the breath work that accompanies them, helps to relax and reset the parasympathetic nervous system allowing for healing to occur in both our physical and emotional bodies. Taking deep and conscious breaths allows us to breathe in more of the salt particles dispersed in the air around us. A variety of yoga practices are incorporated during these private sessions including Yin, Restorative, and Power. These sessions can be uniquely tailored to your own needs and goals, and there is no experience required with yoga. We provide mats, bolsters, cork blocks, and straps to help you get into each posture as fully and as comfortably as possible.
