Do you want to find a place to relax in the midst of the everyday stress of life? Sweet Serenity Massage and Salt Therapy, celebrated a grand opening was on April 6, at their new location in Florence. Fran Hasekoester, licensed Massage Therapist, and her husband brought her vision for the business to life in just two months. “My husband was my contractor and he did an amazing job bringing my dream to life,” she says.
Hasekoester’s inspiration behind starting the salt room is family. “I have some family members who have health issues, which could be helped by salt therapy – also called Halotherapy,” Hasekoester says. “By bringing this amazing treatment to the area, I will be able to help my family members, as well as other people in this area with various health issues.” She named the business Sweet Serenity because it reflects the way she wants her customers to feel when they leave her facility.
The salt rooms replicate the environment of a salt cave. “A Halogenerator crushes warm pharmaceutical salt into fine microscopic particles that are diffused into the air. Individuals relax in the room and breathe in the salty air, much like sitting on the beach,” she says. “When it enters the respiratory tract, it helps to break down the mucus and eliminate toxins. Salt has anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-fungal properties.” Salt therapy is able to help people who are suffering from sinus congestion, allergies, bronchitis, asthma, as well as the early stages of COPD and children with cystic fibrosis. “It is also helpful for skin conditions, such as eczema, dermatitis, acne, and psoriasis. “Salt therapy is safe for both children and adults,” Hasekoester says.
Along with salt therapy, they offer massage services, which include: therapeutic, hot stone, bamboo, and prenatal massage. There is also a cold stone massage offered, which focuses on the sinus congestion and migraines. “This service, when combined with a salt room visit, provides exceptional relief from the sinus congestion and headaches that affect many of us,” she says. Sweet Serenity offers packages that make the services affordable for all their clients. Hasekoester is currently the only full-time therapist there, but Regina Bach is available by scheduling an appointment. “I am currently looking for additional therapists to join me,” she says.
Hasekoester is excited and nervous about starting her new business venture. “My goal is to create an environment of relaxation and serenity. I want it to be a place which provides my clients with a method to relieve their stress and anxiety,” she says. “My slogan is ‘A way to good health and wellness.’”
