A friend of mine gave me a gift certificate to this new business in town, and I finally got a chance to use it.

Wow!  I needed it.  Two-thirds of the way into holiday vacation with several kids and heading into January; perhaps you can relate?

You know how when you go to the ocean, you breathe in that salt air and then you feel like a million bucks? It’s the same premise … only even better as the air is heavily saturated by a dry salt generator.  The Greeks have been using salt caves for thousands of years;  way back in BC when Hippocrates recommended salt inhalation as a respiratory treatment.

And then in 1843, a Polish Physician Felix Boczkowski discovered that men working in the salt mines at Wieliczka suffered fewer respiratory problems than the general population.

So Tis the Season for Colds and other respiratory issues, give it a try.  Here’s their website for more info:  www.SalternativeSpa.com and for mentioning you saw it here – Fox River Mamas, receive 30% OFF your first service.

And they have a lengthy list of services that they offer.  Leah Paige Jenski is the owner.  A little over two years ago, right after having her fifth son, Leah found herself facing Lyme Disease. It was time for an overhaul of her stressed out, corporate lifestyle.  It has been her dream to offer all of the treatments that she found that gave her life back, in one place … Salternative Spa.

Some of these include:  

Flotation Pods — similar to the Dead Sea, sensory deprivation tanks, wonderful for Athletes and the rest of us, too.  Okay, I’m claustrophobic, but you can try it with the lid open.

And not just that, but light therapy, massage, Chinese medicine, Yoga classes, meditations, a monthly Lyme Disease support group and more!

Come on in any time for a tour … and then be sure to get your 30% first time off Special Fox River Mama offer …

  • Salternative Spa is on Fabyan Parkway just east of Kirk Road by the Country House restaurant.
