Salt City –salt room Helsinki
Salt City is a new salt room in the heart of Helsinki, Punavuori. Salt room is built with modern technology and provides safe and up-to- date treatment (halotherapy) for customers of all ages. Halotherapy is especially good for people suffering from skin problems or diseases in their respiratory system. The treatment reduces and prevents symptoms of general flu and e.g. ear infections as well as asthma and other infections in the lungs. Also athletes and performers using their voice as instrument have been satisfied with the salt treatment as it balances and maintains the natural resilience in the lungs.

Salt has been used as a remedy for hundreds of years e.g. in the Eastern Europe as people were cured in salt caves where the climate was found beneficial for many illnesses. Salt is antiseptic and it binds moisture to the skin. It helps the mucosa to heal from different infections and provides preventive protection.
The salt room fits 4 to 5 people at one time. The treatment lasts for 40 min. If you are treating skin problems you may want to change into t-shirt. Adults can sleep, read or listen to music while relaxing on comfortable chairs and the children can play on the floor with the salt as the room is like a huge sandbox for them. Please arrive ten minutes earlier and remember to drink after the treatment.
Salt City is established and run by a small, Finnish familycompany Hyppyri Ltd. Until now we have provided services, trainings and consulting in the social field. Since this year we are also able to provide the services of a licenced psychologist and in the beginning of next year psychotherapy. Seeing and meeting people from the holistic view and as a psychophysical living organism is important for us. Salt City is representing the physical side of well-being in our services.
The story behind Salt City emerges from our own experience of salt room. We have a big family and many of us suffer from allergies, asthma and atopic skin. Our experience with this treatment was so positive and encouraging that we used to joke about establishing our own salt room. Now – a few years later – the joke became true and we are opening Salt City, with a help of our lovely friends.
Warm welcome to Salt City!
