Halotherapy Solutions device delivers salt therapy in treatment rooms, says Steve Spiro There’s growing consumer interest in halo (salt) therapy since COVID19 as people look to improve their respiratory health and boost their immune systems. Indeed, some spas may already have dedicated salt rooms or halotherapy booths. But now Halotherapy Solutions has revealed HaloPocket, a 19cm tall personal halogenerator, to deliver dry salt

therapy benefits at the press of a single button, in just five minutes. “My goal is to have HaloPocket used as either an opening and closing ritual for a facial or massage that supports respiratory health or to give any treatment an extra boost, just like spas upsell a mask or special technique,” says Halotherapy Solutions’ founder and CEO Steve Spiro. “Plus, it’s an excellent, innovative product to sell in a spa’s retail store and online – especially in the ‘new normal’ world of COVID-19.” The HaloPocket, which retails at US$1,299 (€1,136, £1,029), is already being stocked by leading operators such as the Carillon Miami Wellness Resort in the US. Halotherapy Solutions distributes worldwide via companies such as Drom UK and Spa Vision.

Medical-grade covers protect equipment from disinfectant, explains Oakworks’ Jeff Riach

The machine-washable material can be used on pillows, tables and stools

We’ve been developing and selling medical equipment for 15 years, and we realised the knowledge we’ve gained needed to be focused on helping the spa industry open safely 94 spabusiness.com issue 3 2020

In response to coronavirus, Oakworks has developed Terra Touch – a medical-grade fabric, designed to conceal and protect spa equipment from being spoiled by the harsh chemicals needed to safely clean surfaces. According to Oakworks, most fabrics used by spas crack, stiffen and shrink when faced with strong disinfectants. But Terra Touch passes ISO standards meaning it can withstand hospital-grade cleaning and it’s also passed tests for cytotoxicity, skin irritation and sensitisation. The material is being used to create reusable, machine-washable (60˚C) and waterproof covers

for pillows, tables and stools, along with a full line of tables and positioning accessories. “We’ve been developing and selling medical equipment for 15 years, and we realised the knowledge we have gained needed to be focused on helping the spa industry open safely,” says Jeff Riach, CEO of Oakworks. spa-kit.net keyword: http://lei.sr/b9Q9K Oakworks
