What is a Himalayan Salt Pod

There’s a brand new business in Somers, CT that has chosen to use our name for their business and to set the records straight we are NOT associated with them!  They appear to be more of a spa than a Wellness Center.  My aunt always said that when someone copies you its the greatest complement or highest form of flattery!  (Personally – I like to be more original.) I also like to educate my clients and I do tons of research before I offer anything new at the Abundant Wellness Center. From what I researched on these Himalayan Salt Pods is that most of these units primarily use Sodium Chloride = table salt and NOT Himalayan Salt.  Sodium chloride is the chemical name given to table salt and Rock Salt or Halite used to melt the ice on roads and walkways.  Although some have reported that they have benefited from weight loss and respiratory issues, its unclear as to exactly what kind(s) of salt was used during their treatments. However the salt used in Salt Floatation Therapy is Epsom Salt NOT sodium chloride.  Epsom Salt Floatation makes your brain happy and reduces stress all over your body. It has been used to effectively to treat everything from stress and anxiety, to migraines, to chronic pain and fibromyalgia, to mental disorders.

These are a few things listed for precautions on sodium chloride I found on this site MSDS:

While sodium chloride isn’t currently considered a health hazard, the following precautions should be taken when working with the chemical to ensure you’re steering clear of any potential dangers:

  • Work area should have sufficient exhaust ventilation. Regularly vacuum dust to minimize the potential of air-borne exposure.
  • Avoid eye contact and wear eye protection if/when eye contact is likely to occur.
  • Avoid skin contact and wear protective clothing and gloves.

Managing Exposure to Sodium Chloride

Although normal handling of sodium chloride is not known to have any significant effects or health hazards, the following good laboratory practices should be followed if exposure does occur:

1) Eye Contact

Remove contact lenses, if necessary. Rinse immediately with plenty of water for at least five minutes. Seek medical attention if irritation occurs and persists.

2) Skin Contact

Remove contaminated clothing and wash affected area with plenty of soap and water. Seek medical attention if the skin becomes irritated or a rash develops.

3) Inhalation

Remove the person from exposure and bring into fresh air. Seek medical attention if the exposed individual has any difficulty breathing.

4) Ingestion

Do not induce vomiting. If person is conscious, rinse mouth with plenty of water and give several glasses of water to drink. Seek medical attention if adverse symptoms occur.

Safely Handling Sodium Chloride Spills

In the event of a sodium chloride spill, the following steps should be taken:

  • Vacuum or wet-sweep the area. Avoid dry sweeping or other methods that will raise dust.
  • Place into a closable container and label for disposal.
  • Clean the area with water and detergent.

Properly Storing Sodium Chloride

Sodium chloride should be stored in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area and kept in a securely closed container. Be sure to keep away this chemical away from excessive heat.

 

2 for 1 Readings with Sharon D’Angelo

2 for 1 Readings Special* with Sharon D’Angelo~ * two ½-hour readings with Sharon for $100 = $50 per person back to back. Bring a buddy and have fun!

Sharon has been reading Tarot and Oracle Cards since 1990. She has trained and studied with many great professional readers, and has been working here at the Abundant Wellness Center as a psychic/ medium as well as an intuitive Tarot Reader. Sharon’s style is less predictive, more getting to the heart of the matter and using the tarot to help others with challenges, being prepared to recognize and reach for opportunities and see what change is needed to manifest positive life choices.

Note: each reading is private so you don’t have to be together during the reading of course unless you want to.

Reflexology Special with Robyn Burns

SAVE $10 on Reflexology with Robyn Burns

We have over 7,000 nerve endings on the soles of our feet, making them quite sensitive and responsive to the sensory input of Reflexology. The body is reflected in your feet. Reflexology approaches the body as a whole with interrelated systems.

The practitioner uses a skillful application of pressure to specific reflex points in the feet or hands, which creates physical changes that can bring about balance, ease, and enable healing energies wherever in the body they are needed.

Reflexology is used as complementary care for people with a variety of conditions. For example, reflexology can alleviate headaches, reduce arthritic and back pain, give support during addiction withdrawal, ease premenstrual discomforts, and reduce the symptoms of diabetes.

1-hour session only $55 (reg. $65)   (No other offer combined. Offer expires 10-31-17.)
