How it Began
Meet Fiona Scott
Born in Hong Kong to Scottish parents, Fiona’s experiences include sports development, health and fitness management, and 10 years in luxury resort development, living and working in England, South Carolina, the Bahamas, and Grenada.
In 2007, Fiona was diagnosed with a chronic lung condition. This resulted in many infections requiring hospitalizations. With her holistic approach to health, she balanced traditional treatments with natural therapies. After visiting a salt room whilst traveling, she realized that not only did her lungs feel better but the experience itself was very relaxing and revitalizing.
The idea for Sôlt was born. Fiona designed Sôlt Wellness as a space where the environment maximizes the therapeutic benefits of the services offered. With its calming aesthetics, customer service focus, and complimentary combination of services offered, Sôlt offers a unique healing and rejuvenation experience here in Charleston.
The Salt Room
Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, originated in the 1800’s in the salt caves and mines of Eastern Europe. Today, the same atmosphere and conditions are recreated in a salt room, where a halogenerator grinds pure sodium chloride and disperses it in the air.
Dry salt particles are super absorbent, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. When inhaled, the dry salt absorbs allergens, toxins and foreign substances and helps break up and clear mucus. It helps with inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widens the airway passages. A clean respiratory system results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy, and an improved immune system.
Respiratory conditions that might improve include asthma, allergies, common cold, bronchitis, COPD, cystic fibrosis, sinusitis, ear infections, and smoker’s cough.
The ability of dry salt to absorb impurities and provide anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties benefits skin conditions. The salt provides pH normalization, induces reparative and regenerative processes, and increases skin rigidity.
Skin conditions that might improve include psoriasis, itching, eczema, swelling and inflammation, dermatitis, dry and flaky skin, acne, rashes, rosacea, and skin aging.
