Back in June I wrote about how I’d been mourning the loss of my old self… the pre-pregnant me and lots of people got in touch with self care ideas that might help me out. These ideas ranged from taking time out to get my nails done to finding some time to read but then an interesting press release and opportunity popped into my inbox.
The release stated ‘Sereniti Salt Retreat is a unique space in Newcastle City Centre that has been created with the sole intention of helping people achieve a better quality of life.’ So they basically had me at hello!
I had heard of salt rooms before but there are very few in the country and had never had chance to experience one. Halotherapy is typically used as a treatment for respiratory problems or skin ailments but the experience promotes a general feel good factor. I was lucky enough to be gifted a 45 minute session in the salt room, so I managed to secure J for some childcare and took myself off for an afternoon to myself.
Tucked away near China town, Sereniti is easy to find. I wasn’t really sure what to expect but it was actually a lovely time. I didn’t have any respiratory problems or skin ailments but after 45 minutes sat under a cosy blanket in the room, I definitely felt more relaxed and over the next few days noticed that my skin and hair condition had dramatically improved.
There was one other visitor in the room at the time and I don’t want to name her as we got chatting and her story was quite personal. She showed me the amazing results she had had since using the room after suffering from Psoriasis for years. The difference was incredible to see and she was a regular to the room now she’d discovered it.
A one off 45 minute session costs £30 or you can book multiple and it works out cheaper. A salt room session can be combined with one of Serenti’s other treatments which include Acupuncture, Indian Head Massage, Reiki and Hypnotherapy. There are separate treatment rooms or you can request if it’s free to have your treatment in the salt room which I’d highly recommend as it’s such a relaxing place.
I really enjoyed my experience at Serenti and you’re like me and enjoy going for spa days and having relaxing treatments then I can highly recommend it.
