It has been suggested that spending time in our Himalayan Salt room is like being in nature, standing in front of a waterfall, spending time in the forest, or just relaxing by the ocean or a lake produces the same internal calmness.
Also known as color therapy, has much scientific evidence on the effect of colors on our emotion and mental health. Cell phones, computers, e-readers and most artificial light is high in the blue spectrum, which has been shown to reduce melatonin production and can interfere with normal sleeping patterns and circadian rythmn (our body’s natural clock) Back light Himalayan salt walls emit a healthy glow, ranging in color light-waves of oranges, yellows, reds and apricot. The light creates a soothing ambiance that helps with relaxation, stress, attention deficit, autism, sleep and more.

Surround yourself with glowing salt walls, reset your brain waves and combat blue light exposure/retinal fatigue from electronics. You will see how spending time in our salt room can be restorative.
Chronic Blue Light Pollution and Retinal Fatigue
One of “the most overlooked health risks in today’s world” is chronic exposure to blue light, produced by smartphones, tablets, ebook readers, laptops, computer screens, energy efficient fluorescent and LED lights. Data shows we check our phones, on average, 150 times a day. Reports show that many adults clock more than 10 hours of screen time daily!
Blue light exposure suppresses the body’s production of melatonin, which helps us sleep. Reduced melatonin can lead to sleep problems, diabetes, obesity, depression, anxiety, mood changes, and a newly identified condition, Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS). ROS creates inflammation, diminishes the function of your mitochondria (cellular powerhouses) and leads to less energy, contributing to many health issues.
Every time we move away from our natural environment, we disrupt our body’s cycles and therefore our health.
Your Skin and Blue Light
Did you know that eight hours in front of a computer exposes you to the same negative effects as 20 minutes in the mid-day sun? This exposure leads to oxidative stress in live skin. Blue light has been shown to penetrate all the way to your dermis, where collagen and elastin live.
