It was not long after James and Heather Tognazzini moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area that they became desperate to relieve a sudden onslaught of allergy symptoms.

Heather said she began researching different types of remedies beyond the daily allergy medications she and her family took.

“We felt like there had to be something different,” Heather said. “Throughout the process of researching, looking for holistic remedies [and] trying a lot of things, I found salt therapy.”

The Tognazzinis celebrated the one-year anniversary of their business, The Salt Retreat, in May. The facility offers dry salt therapy, which is also referred to as halo therapy.

The Salt Retreat offers rooms for individuals, children and group parties. Treatment sessions last 20-40 minutes depending on the size of the room. A mixture of finely ground, medical-grade salt and air flows through the rooms during the sessions.

“We decided we would like to start a salt therapy center here in Frisco that we could use for our family and for our friends, our neighbors, our community,” Heather said. “We wanted to do it our way—we wanted to make it feel like a spa environment.”

Different treatment plans are recommended for each client depending on the severity of the conditions, James said.

“Our standard recommendation is two to three times per week for a period of four to six weeks, and then [we] adjust accordingly,” James said. “Everyone’s unique, and they’re battling a different situation. Some are more chronic or severe than others.”

Heather said many people already use different forms of salt therapy, such as saline nasal sprays and neti pots. The salt works to loosen up mucus and ease inflammation.

James said some of the most-common conditions they treat are asthma and various allergies.

The Salt Retreat also sells CBD and Dead Sea mineral products, as well as Himalayan salt rocks.
