If you’re still nursing an emotional hangover caused by the chaos of 2020, you’re not alone. As we struggle to catch up after the events of last year, it’s harder than ever to find time for self-care (and sanity, for that matter). Luckily, Intown Salt Room (@intownsaltroom) officially reopened its doors to offer us Atlantans a place to catch our breath—literally.
“It’s really appealing to people who need to rest, recharge and then go about their day,” explains Carrie Wright, who founded Intown Salt Room with the goal of introducing relaxation to ITP Atlantans. With two unique salt room experiences, dry salt therapy and meditation with sound therapy, the Grant Park hot spot boasts all the benefits of your favorite spa in a matter of minutes. The most popular is dry salt therapy. The practice is proven to immediately reduce stress, anxiety and fatigue, and repeat visits can positively benefit those struggling with ailments such as acne, asthma and allergies. The meditation room is ideal for those who need help calming their mind. Chant-based music and gentle vibrations offer a full-body sensory experience that is shown to improve mental health and boost one’s mood. “It’s like a musical massage,” says Wright.

This year, Wright is challenging Atlantans to make a stop at Intown Salt Room part of their daily routine as a way to strengthen their immune system while prioritizing their physical and mental health.“Self-care doesn’t mean that you have to go and do a big experience,” says Wright. “It can be as little as finding a quiet space to take a deep breath.” That’s one less thing to feel salty about.
