Salt & Oxygen Chamber

Exclusive. Accessible. Wellbeing. 

Finding Inspiration in Every Turn


Salt & Oxygen Chamber

High levels of positive ions such as bacteria, viruses, dust and allergens found in our modern day environment have a profound adverse effect on our horses health and can lead to a whole host of ailments which suppress the immune system causing a lack in pulmonary and cardiovascular function and efficiency.  Impaired pulmonary and cardiovascular function increases acidity in the body which in turn damages healthy cells.


Our Sea salt therapy combines medically approved equipment and scientific approaches in treating equine athletes.  We nebulise laboratory tested Dead Sea salt, enriched with magnesium, which is vaporised with de-ironised air at specific rates into the atmosphere within our enclosed facility.  De-ionised oxygenated air has specific properties which are able to eliminate positive ions leaving negatively ionised air which provides the most efficient and effective recovery environment.  The process involves controlled release and ingestion of a complex mix of mineral salts and concentrated negatively ionised oxygen via the respiratory system and skin cells simultaneously.  The health and performance benefits are endless.  Dead Sea salt is 46% potassium, 31% magnesium, 22% sodium and 1% calcium.  Domestic salt (milled salt) is 88% (!) Sodium, 8% magnesium, 2% potassium and 2% calcium. Milled salt can be harsh and aggravate the mucus membrane which is why we have chosen to use Dead Sea Salt instead which is known for its healing properties.


Salt from the Dead Sea with endless benefits. One of the only salt chambers in the UK to not use coarse salt and instead use the higher mineralisation quality salt from the Dead Sea. A purpose built chamber which delivers pure oxygen and salt in mist form from the Dead Sea. Horses find the treatment relaxing and it’s amazing for skin issues, respiratory problems and all round health. When using it for respiratory issues horses ideally need to be worked after the treatment so choose between the arenas, lunge or dry treadmill.
