Parksville Infrared Sauna Therapy + HaloIR™ Salt Therapy

Wellness redefined, the HaloIR™ is the ultimate wellness solution. Combining infrared heat and salt therapy, the HaloIR™ engages all five senses for a truly transformative experience:

  • TASTE the salty air.
  • SMELL the restorative essential oil.
  • FEEL the warmth of the infrared heat.
  • HEAR the soothing guided meditation.
  • SEE the changing lights of the medical grade chromotherapy and red light waves.

There’s a reason why saunas have been used for the last 2000 years—the incredible (mental and physical) health benefits. Of course, our technology has improved over the centuries leading us to the sophisticated HaloIR™ salt sauna technology we have right here in Parksville, BC.


How frequently can I come in for salt therapy?2024-04-22T19:29:53-04:00

For best results, we recommend undergoing salt therapy three times a week until you see a significant improvement in your condition. Bi-weekly or monthly sessions are recommended to maintain your optimal wellness.

Why am I coughing during my HaloIR™ session?2024-04-22T19:28:03-04:00

During your HaloIR™ session, the salt particles may trigger coughing, but this is perfectly normal and indicates that the therapy is effectively working to cleanse your respiratory system. Salt therapy is an excellent practice for maintaining respiratory hygiene and helping to clear the lungs, enhancing your overall breathing comfort and health.

What is chromotherapy?2024-04-22T19:26:14-04:00

Chromotherapy, also known as colour therapy, uses coloured lights to stimulate various responses in the body for wellness. This feature is optional in your HaloIR™ session.


How do I prepare for my HaloIR™ session?2024-04-22T19:18:21-04:00

Preparing for your HaloIR™ session at Elegance Sculpting is easy and tailored to your specific health needs, whether you’re seeking relief from respiratory conditions or skin issues.

For Respiratory Conditions:

  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water prior to your session to aid in detoxification.
  • Attire: You may keep your clothes on; only shoes need to be removed. Comfortable, breathable clothing is recommended.
  • During Your Session: Once you’re comfortably seated in the cabin, relax and breathe normally. Although normal breathing is fine, we encourage deep breathing for enhanced benefits. We offer guided breathing exercises and calm music to help you relax.

For Skin Conditions:

  • Hydration: It’s important to stay hydrated; please drink plenty of water before your session.
  • Attire and Privacy: Remove your shoes and feel free to expose any areas of your skin that you feel would benefit from direct salt therapy. Our cabins are private, allowing you the comfort to remove clothing as needed. Many clients opt for wearing just a bathing suit.
  • Post-Session Care: For maximum benefits, leave the salt on your skin as long as possible after the session.
What is halotherapy?2024-04-22T19:13:20-04:00

Halotherapy involves inhaling fine salt particles to promote respiratory health. In this therapy, a halogenerator processes high-grade pharmaceutical salt (99.99% pure sodium chloride) into tiny particles that fill the therapy space. Salt’s natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties make halotherapy effective in cleansing the respiratory system, loosening mucus, and reducing inflammation.

Often described as a detox for the lungs and airways, halotherapy offers relief from various conditions, including allergies, asthma, various types of bronchitis, sinus issues, COPD, sleep apnea, and more. It can also help with ear infections, laryngitis, tonsillitis, cystic fibrosis, hay fever, emphysema, pneumonia, and smoker’s cough.

Additionally, due to its anti-inflammatory benefits, halotherapy aids in treating skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, aging skin, acne, dermatitis, and dry or itchy skin.

What can I expect during my HaloIR™ session?2024-04-22T19:11:47-04:00

At Elegance Sculpting in Parksville, BC, we are excited to offer the Halo-IR sauna, a revolutionary two-person unit that blends the benefits of halotherapy with infrared sauna technology. Enhance your experience with medical-grade light therapy (chromotherapy), Bluetooth speakers for your choice of music or guided meditation, and aromatherapy. Customize each session to create a unique and personal wellness experience that addresses your specific health needs.

The HaloIR sauna session starts with 20 minutes of combined heated halotherapy and infrared heat up to 120°, followed by 25 minutes of infrared heating up to 140°. Both halotherapy and infrared sauna functionalities can be used separately, ensuring that each session is fully tailored to your preferences.

Is heated Halotherapy more effective than non-heated?2024-04-22T19:00:13-04:00

Yes, when the air is dry and warm, it will allow for deeper penetration and better absorbency of the salt particles in the bronchi. Halotherapy at low levels of heat enhances the experience and efficacy of Halotherapy.

What temperature is the HaloIR™ infrared sauna?2024-04-22T18:56:51-04:00

Infrared saunas detoxify and promote relaxation using infrared lamps, which use electromagnetic ration, to warm your body rather than the air. This allows for infrared saunas to operate at a lower temperature, between 110˚F and 125˚F, whereas traditional saunas using conventional heat use typically between 150˚F and 180˚F. This allows for the environment to be more comfortable for you so you can reap the benefits of a full session.

The Benefits of Infrared Saunas & Halotherapy

  • Balances cortisol levels to promote relaxation

  • Helps increase circulation producing more white blood cells, which can help improve immunity

  • Improves muscle recovery time by sending more oxygen to the cells in your body

  • Helps improve skin conditions (psoriasis, eczema, etc.)

  • Aids in weight loss burning up to 600 calories per session depending on the individual

  • Helps relieve joint pain and discomfort by increasing blood circulation

  • Increases sweating leading to increased detoxification of the toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis

  • May aid in cardio conditioning as the increased heat tolerance threshold prepares the body for cardiac output
