Langham Place New York Enhances Chuan Body + Soul Spa with Saltability-Touch America Himalayan Salt Wall

MANHATTAN, NEW YORK – June 2, 2017: Chuan Body + Soul, the spa at Langham Place New York, 5th Avenue, recently enhanced their sauna with the addition of Himalayan salt wall from Saltability and Touch America. Constructed of illuminated, hand-carved salt blocks,the wall adds aesthetic beauty and boosts health and wellness for guests through warmed, pure Himalayan salt, one of the earth’s oldest known healing elements.

“Chuan Body + Soul’s new Himalayan salt wall fits perfectly with their emphasis on guest wellness through the earth’s basic elemental forces,” said Ann Brown, Saltability founder and CEO. “We are excited to partner with Chuanto create a positive effect on guest and therapist wellness at the spa environment level, supporting health through the salt’s grounding and air purifying effectin the treatment room.”

Focusing on principles on traditional Chinese medicine and the five elemental forces of fire, earth, water, metal, and wood, Chuan Body + Spa offers an array of treatment options for guests, ranging from signature escapes and massages, hydrafacials, detox rituals and more. 

Derived from the Primal Sea, where scientists believe all life originated, Saltability’s 100 percent pure salt is responsibly sourced from the Himalayan Mountains in Pakistan. Gently heated, Himalayan salt serves as a natural ionizer, emitting negative ions which purify the circulating air and counteract the excessive positive ions produced by an overabundance of electronics in today’s world. Himalayan salt – rich in negative ions and 84 essential nutrients and minerals – offer numerous health benefits for our bodies, such as stress reduction, energy increases, and mood boosts at a biochemical level.

“Enhancing our sauna with the benefits of the Himalayan salts not only adds another layer of health benefits but it creates an esthetic to the environment and a sense of calmness,” says Nicole Yih, Director of Spa at Langham Place New York. “The wellness benefits along with the esthetics of the pure salt really create a sense of place and calmness for our guests.”

In addition to salt walls, Saltability and Touch America have partnered to bring innovative and one-of-a-kind Himalayan salt equipment to the spa industry. Product offerings include the Atlas Flex-Block Himalayan Salt Table and Atlas Flex-Block Himalayan Salt Lounge, both patent pending, which offer unique relaxation and numerous health benefits for spa guests through a pure Himalayan salt surface that flexes to cradle the body in comfort.
