After more than a decade working for Fortune 100 companies, Connie Chang-Tallman said she wanted to pursue her true calling: natural healing. Along with co-owner John Tallman, the couple opened Salt and Soles two years ago in April.

“During my corporate career, I always had a yearning for something like this,” Chang-Tallman said. “I know what it’s like to be busy, so I wanted this to be a place that’s both convenient and relaxing.”

The salt cave—designed by Chang-Tallman and Tallman—features 15,000 pounds of Himalayan salt crystals on the walls and floors as well as zero-gravity recliners and salt lamps.

Halotherapy, or salt therapy, mimics a natural salt cave by infusing the air with particles of pharmaceutical-grade salt. Once a typical 45-minute session begins, the generator grinds the salt and circulates it throughout the room.

In addition to stress relief, Tallman said halotherapy claims to help with asthma, allergies, congestion and the common cold.

“The idea is to relax and breathe deeply to get the salt air into your respiratory system,” Tallman said. “It’s beneficial because salt is naturally antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal.”

A 45-minute session in the salt cave costs $25 for new clients and $35 for existing clients.

While salt therapy and reflexology are the two core services offered at Salt and Soles, the couple often hosts special events, such as acupuncture, sound healing, yoga and reiki sessions. There is also a private reflexology spa room.

Tallman said everyone who visits Salt and Soles receives individualized services tailored to each customer’s needs.

“Communication is very important to us,” John said. We think it’s important to talk to each client before and after each session. You’ll never leave without full knowledge of how salt therapy and reflexology works for you.”
