Qi Breathing – Discover the Power of the Breath
Next Class: December 6th at 6:30-8:15

Everybody breathes. It’s a fundamental activity. But even though it’s basic, it’s an untapped resource for most people. When expanded, your breath can reduce your stress, increase your energy and improve your health. Qi Breathing is a modern day twist on ancient breathing practices and eastern principles.

Qi Breathing in the Awaken Salt Room amplifies the healing power of the breath with the healing and therapeutic climate of spending time in the salty sea air or natural salt mines. Breathing air misted with pharmaceutical grade salt can provide maximum absorption into the respiratory system, as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Many people have reported help with the following conditions from Halotherapy (Salt therapy): Lung infection, Cystic Fibrosis, Psoriasis, Allergies, Asthma, Bronchitis, Sinusitis, Chronic Cold, and COPD. Whatever your goal, the Salt Therapy room offers holistic healing. Come experience the power of the breath with the healing element of salt. Cost $39
