Workplace stress is at near-record highs across the country, and that stress is taking a toll on employee health and productivity. Many companies are looking for innovative employee stress management programs—and treating workers to Salt therapy may be just the ticket.
The Costs of Work-Related Stress
Stress on the job is nothing new, but that doesn’t mean it should be ignored. Studies and surveys have shown that employees who report high stress levels also report lower engagement, lower productivity, and higher absenteeism (missing work) than those who report less stress.
Employers that take steps to support mental health at work will benefit from a more productive, happy and loyal workforce. Those that ignore the issue, or who undermine the mental health of their staff, risk not only the health of the people who work for them but the wealth of their business and the health of the economy as a whole.

How to Reduce Workplace Stress
Experts recommend reducing workplace stress through tactics like encouraging breaks, improving communication, and introducing flexible workdays or telecommuting. Another popular route is providing employees like free lunches or breakfasts, or sponsoring employee outings to help improve morale.
Take it one step further: consider giving employees the best of both worlds with a workplace wellness day at our Salt Lounge, it has a very relaxing atmosphere. Even one salt therapy session will improve your anxiety, sleeplessness. The meditation music will send you in deep relaxation, you may fall asleep. You just need to sit back and let all your worries to go.
Salt Therapy is not just for those with breathing issues, it can help with general health, stress relief and relaxation. Whilst the salt is predominately working on the respiratory system by cleansing the airways, this helps us all as we live in a city with pollutants that we don’t realise we breathe in constantly.
By cleansing the airways this allows the lungs to be able to take in more oxygen and in turn has a knock on effect through all our bodies with more oxygen in our blood. This is a subtle change, however over time can have a feeling of rejuvenation.
The salt therapy treatment itself is very relaxing and will give you a sense of calm and help relieve stress and fatigue. The room is a high negative ion environment, negative ions are good for us, it’s what we find in nature, especially at the beach and close to bush areas. It helps boost the immune system, give you a better night sleep and give you an all over feeling of wellness.
Our rooms are also available to hire for business meeting in a unique environment with health benefits.
