Looking for an alternative treatment for pesky issues like allergies, pain or inflammation? A Centerville-based salt room and medical massage clinic wants to help.
Benjamin Pfeiffer graduated from the Dayton School of Medical Massage in 2010. Today he works as a licensed massage therapist and the owner behind The Centerville Salt room & Medical Massage clinic.
“The Centerville Salt Room & Medical Massage clinic provides the proven relief of medical massage from excellent licensed massage therapists, along with Halotherapy, the cutting-edge respiratory treatment sweeping the nation,” explains Pfeiffer.
This new trend in respiratory therapy is also known as salt therapy, and is an emerging type of natural therapy. “It is widely popular in European countries,and is gaining popularity in the states,” adds Pfeiffer. “It is completely natural, drug-free, non-invasive, and safe for all ages, including children.”
The mission at the Centerville Salt Room & Medical Massage clinic is to provide the community with holistic, natural, sound of mind and body treatments with the Halotherapy and massage services.
“We believe that wellness begins from within, and we are here to serve those who wish to approach wellness from a natural perspective,” he says.
The Halotherapy treatments from the Centerville Salt Room & Medical Massage clinic involves relaxing in a room that is encased in salt, and during the treatment a piece of equipment, called a halogenerator, grinds pharmaceutical-grade pure salt into fine micro particles, giving them a beneficial negative ion charge, and releases it into the salt room. Pfeiffer says that the salty air is then able to deliver the respiratory treatment and is what makes halotherapy effective.
“The negative ions activate the healing process on a cellular level, helping the body restore itself naturally and effectively,” he adds.
The holistic approach that comes from using Halotherapy is unique and offers several benefits.
“Pure salt has natural properties that can be beneficial, including anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties,” says Pfeiffer.
Halotherapy can also help to treat many disorders, including: asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus infections, cystic fibrosis, nervousness and poor concentration, unhealthy skin, eczema, psoriasis, snoring, ear infections, and emphysema.
“The Halogenerator is the single most important part of halotherapy,” says Pfeiffer. “While a standard salt cave, natural or engineered, will have tons of beneficial negative ion emitting salt, our halogenerator provides a more effective treatment in much less time. We can deliver results more quickly and effectively.”
The Centerville Salt Room & Medical Massage is located at 65 S. Main Street near Independence Square in Centerville, Ohio.
