Nice to meet you! I’m Cindy…

Owner and Operator of OC Salt Therapy since 2018. I’ve been dedicated to sharing the amazing benefits of salt, along with my personal experience of incorporating Halotherapy into my lifestyle (as a client) since 2012. We have a small team of holistically minded support staff and/or independent specialists who you may find to be a wealth of knowledge, information & holistic experiences.
OC Salt Therapy was founded in 2012 in Garden Grove–it was Orange County’s first Halotherapy Wellness Center! It was originally created by Romanian native/USA transplant, Robert Condraschi, for his own son’s well-being. His young son had many respiratory ailments. Robert took him back to the salt mines in Romania to heal him and decided his son and all Southern Californians would benefit from Salt Therapy here in California. You can see his story of how OC Salt Therapy began & learn about his experience in the Romanian Salt Mines here: https://www.ocregister.com/2013/10/06/salt-of-the-earth/

Having utilized Salt Therapy for his own family, he was right, Southern Californians loved it too! After 3 successful years in Garden Grove, he moved the business to Irvine, CA. After 3 more successful years bringing the benefits of salt to OC, he sold the business to me, Cindy Gallant– one of his long time clients– so that he could return to Romania. I’ve been doing Salt Therapy for my dust & environmental allergies since 2012. It quickly changed my life and I never looked back! I weaned myself off of allergies meds, stopped having to do saline rinses, nose sprays, inhalers, and more. As chance would have it, little did I know at the time that I began doing salt, that I had also moved into a home effected by a dangerous level of mold. As luck of timing would have it, by the time I had figured out I was being exposed to undesirable levels of mold, I was already on a protocol of doing salt sessions once a week for my allergies, sinuses, and post nasal drip. I wholeheartedly believe this is what saved me from having to go through a rigorous healing journey like so many other mold clients I’ve encountered. I detoxed fairly quickly and rebounded quite well. It wasn’t until years later that I learned just how much salt sessions can help alleviate issues for those affected by mold. Serendipity for me—what a well-timed blessing.
I encourage everyone to come and try salt! We all live in cities with pollution, toxic cleaning chemicals galore, pollen, and poor indoor air quality! You know that feeling you get when you’ve been to the mountains and you take that deep breath and feel your lungs open up? Ya, that’s how I’d say Halotherapy can feel for so many! Come & give it a try!

Salt therapy is a natural treatment method used throughout history. A therapy shown to be a mild detoxifier that has many benefits for respiratory issues, sinus issues, allergies, skin issues, and more. Some find it helpful for anxiety. Athletes love it for increased lung capacity. City dwellers are exposed to a lot of pollution and toxins daily so you don’t need to have respiratory issues to feel the benefits. Our mold clients have reported that more than anything their Salt Sessions help them the most of all the modalities they do in their journey to regain their health.

​Salt is also incredibly effective as a preventative treatment to boost your immune function and to clear common colds and other respiratory illnesses before they get a chance to cause infection.

Salt is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial.

You will get SALTY! Everything in OC Salt Therapy is salty! The microparticles settle to the surfaces and look like a dust!

If you wear dark colors, it will look like a dust on your clothing, but it’s just salt! It’ll wash right out.

​Most choose to wear exercise type clothing. Some like their skin to be exposed. Others like to cover up and even bring a little throw blanket or beach towel…some wear hoodies or shower caps (especially if they just got a nice new ‘do!… others say it just feels like a dry shampoo and don’t mind the microparticles in their hair at all). You may see some salters wearing bathing suits — true salty skin enthusiasts! It’s really a choose-your-own-journey experience! You’ll have to try it and decide on your own Salty Style!

​Bring water with you for your drive home as you will likely find yourself to be thirsty as that salt continues to work in your body!

Salt binds with moisture internally and thins mucus, so you may get a runny nose; but, no fear, we provide tissues in the salt rooms!

​If you’re asthmatic, please take a magnesium supplement on the day of your session (really, daily is a good idea anyway!) and always bring your rescue inhaler with you.

Salt is negative, but that is positive!  Salt has the natural ability to balance out the positive charge in our bodies by binding the excessive positive ions with salt’s negative ions. The neutralizing forces of salt cancel out positive charged and harmful electromagnetic vibrations in our environment (electro-smog), as well as in our body. Hence, salt therapy has de-stressing and relaxing effects.

Even if you do not have allergies, sinus or lung issues, the majority of us are exposed to pollution, cleaning chemicals, toxic fumes, molds and more in our daily lives; and therefore, could benefit from some salt sessions to help clear your airways!

​Think of salt therapy as a neti-pot or toothbrush for your airways! Those dry salty microparticles get deep into the of the sinuses and branches of the lungs, stimulate the cilia, liquefy mucus and dislodge/expel pollutants, debris, pathogens, etc. For skin, salt is pH balancing. Salt is anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial.

Due to the antibacterial, antiviral and antimicrobial nature of salt it is not likely to catch an infection or be affected by bacteria during the therapy. Salt is a natural anti-bacterial and it kills almost all bacteria on contact.

We have Aquaox — HOCL All natural disinfectant made with water, salt and science on hand at all times. Safe, nontoxic and extremely effective against pathogens, bacteria, viruses, fungus, etc. Ask us more about HOCL — we sell Aquaox and love to educate clients on HOCL made with SALT!

We also utilize a NASA endorsed air purification system: The Vollara® Air & Surface Pro, which combines multiple complementary technologies, including HEPA, activated carbon, and ActivePure® Technology. Patented ActivePure is an advanced surface and air purification technology. It has been proven to reduce over 99.9% of many common airborne and surface contaminants and has been inducted into the Space Foundation Hall of Fame.

​We do request that you remind your little ones to be on their best behavior as this is a place where people come to heal. We offer toys and two of our rooms have TVs. Calm and quiet are important in this environment and we trust that you will do all you can to be sure your children do their very best to behave.

​Please instruct them not to throw the salt– digging, scooping, and piling into mounds is encouraged!

Please have young children use the restroom before their session. Any accidents in the salt room may result in extra fees due to the cost of needing to remove large quantities of salt.

Salt room therapy requires no special clothing; the salt will not damage your clothes. You may wear anything that you are comfortable with, as you will remain entirely clothed for the session. The only item that you remove is your shoes before entering. You may wear socks or be barefoot.

For children, we request that they come to sessions in clothing that is clean and free of dirt or mud, and clean socks, as the shoe coverings we provide may be too large to stay on their feet as they play in the salt room. We also request that children with long hair wear it in a ponytail or bun to minimize the amount of hair on the salt room floor.

​There are lots of toys to entertain children and TVs for those who wish to turn them on during their sessions!
