Himalayan Source Responds to Covid-19 With Launch of Private Halotherapy Experience With Minimal Human Contact for Hotel Spa Guests

USA, Boca Raton, Florida. May 25, 2020

Helping hotels, spas and wellness centers envision new ways of doing business in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Himalayan Source announces a new, private halotherapy experience for clients that minimizes human contact while delivering multiple therapy modalities - turning treatment rooms into salt therapy rooms that maximize client wellness and business revenues. Himalayan Source's new concept will be piloted by Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa in Delray Beach and is expected to launch June 1, 2020.

Designed for use by one person at a time, Himalayan Source's private halotherapy experience combines far infrared heat therapy with the benefits of Himalayan salt to create a luxury healing experience with a particular focus on supporting respiratory health with minimal human contact. Designed to be added to any treatment room, the private halotherapy experience may be offered as a standalone treatment with no therapist commission needed or as an add-on/upgrade in conjunction with a facial or massage.

"We designed this private halotherapy experience to help clients feel comfortable returning to spas," said Ann Brown, co-founder of Himalayan Source. "During this time of high anxiety because of COVID-19, it is crucial that we support guest health and wellness in our community. This grounding, healing salt therapy experience allows spas to offer wellness in an environment that minimizes risk for clients."

During the private halotherapy experience, a client or member benefits from true halotherapy while enjoying the soothing view of an aesthetically pleasing, glowing Himalayan salt wall. Breathing in pharmaceutical grade particles of salt from a halogenerator, he or she relaxes on a massage table that provides far infrared heat therapy combined with gemstones, pulsed electromagnetic held therapy (PEMF) and LED light therapy. Guided meditation to restore body, mind and spirit rounds out the experience to provide total rejuvenation and recentering.

"Safety has always been a top priority at Hand & Stone. As we prepare to reopen and our guests return for some much needed relaxation, we are thrilled to offer them extra peace of mind with this new halotherapy service offered by Himalayan Source," said Katherine Chenier, owner of the Delray Beach Hand & Stone franchise that is piloting the new concept.

Combining expertise in Himalayan salt therapy and understanding of ergonomics, human engineering and kinesiology, Himalayan Source offers a full line of Himalayan salt concepts to complement any hotel, spa or wellness space. Clients include the Langham New York, Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort & Spa in Jamaica, the Biltmore Miami-Coral Gables, Gaylord National on the Potomac and more.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
