Nestled away in Shrewsbury, NJ, The Breathing Rooms is an appointment-only wellness spa. It is here for you to escape for a while, as our contact-free rooms activate your body's powerful natural healing systems. Our rooms are expertly designed to restore your vitality in deeply relaxing and enjoyable ways.
We built The Breathing Rooms for everyone who knows we must rest and heal regularly, to truly make the most of life. And we love seeing you leave, feeling measurably calmer and ready to face the world again. Our youngest patrons have been 6 month-old twins who weren't sleeping well and enjoyed breathing in the cleansing Salt Rooms with Mom and Dad. Our oldest patrons (so far) were floaters in their nineties who felt those aches and pains fade away. Everyone in between leaves feeling chilled-out and restored too!
Although you can use our rooms individually, many patrons have found the benefits of combining our Himalayan Salt Room/Private Salt Room, Infrared Sauna Room and custom built Open-Tank Float Room. We call this combination The Total Reset and it is the most popular thing to do here (see below). For that special occasion you can even "Takeover" the entire Breathing Rooms for your family or group of up to six friends.
See you soon to Reset Your Self! Mark & Tara.
How to Book
To make a booking, just buy a pass for any room or package below and then use Mindbody to book the time that's right for you. Or call 732-366-9600 / email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can do it for you, and answer any initial questions you may have about our services. For multiple room packages like the Total Reset, we find patrons like to call or email to chat before their first visit. Although our therapies are deeply effective at activating your body's healing "Parasympathetic Functions", each requires no more effort than to show up, kick off your shoes for a while, and start to Reset Your Self™.
The Himalayan Salt Room
Our Himalayan Salt Room is the largest we know of anywhere. Dry Salt Therapy has been medically recognized in Europe for over 50 years, for the treatment of breathing and skin problems, according to the World Halotherapy Association. As we take 20,000 breaths each day*, we inhale all sorts of chemicals and allergens and our respiratory system has to work hard to prevent these particles from making us unhealthy.
Our Himalayan Salt Room is made of 2,112 Salt Bricks and 6,700 lbs of crushed salt pebbles, imported from from a pristine mine in the Himalayan mountains. As you breathe, our specialized system releases extremely finely ground particles of pharmaceutical grade pure salt, which lines your Respiratory System. Spending 45 minutes (or 624 breaths), chilling out in our Himalayan Salt Room allows your system to boost itself in a completely natural, safe and drug-free way. Pure salt is a natural anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal substance. It stimulates your internal processes for cleansing the respiratory tract and strengthening your lung function.
A popular option for friends and family groups allows groups up to 8 to take the room for themselves, which is a perfect activity for your "Covid Bubble".
*According to the Scientific American. (You breathe even more if you exercise.)
The Infrared Sauna
Infrared Saunas heat you from deep within your body, and not the air around you, as in a traditional sauna. This makes it a more comfortable experience as it is easier to breathe.
Using an Infrared Sauna can contribute to your well-being by loosening up stiff or tight muscles, reducing joint pain, detoxing elements from deep in your skin, increasing your white blood cell count and circulation and boosting your immune system. The full list of benefits from our partners at Jacuzzi Clearlight is Increased Metabolism, Weight Loss, Pain Relief, Detoxification, Immunity Boost, Lowered Blood Pressure, Cellulite Reduction, Joint Pain Relief, Increased Flexibility Stress Reduction, Healthier Skin.
Our two person Jacuzzi Clearlight Infrared Sauna also features Color Light Therapy that can be set to your particular needs, while you are working up a sweat. Although 45 minutes may same like a long time, one of the main benefits from our Infrared Saunas comes from cooling down a little then heating back up a few times.
The Open-Tank Float Room
From the moment your slip into the beautiful custom-designed open flotation tank, to when you emerge an hour later, you check yourself out of the world. Suspended in 1,250 lbs of Epsom Salt and triple-filtered water, heated to your body's temperature, you will relax in a unique and deep way. It soaks your muscles. It frees your body from gravity and your mind from the outside world.
Everyone who floats know the secret; your body relaxes, your mind wanders, you enter a dream-like state between sleep and awake (scientists call this the "Theta State"), as your brain waves get longer. Your sleep after floating gets deeper. Your senses get stronger. Your creativity awakens. The more often you do it, the better it gets.
Read in Time Magazine how floating is now being measured in the treatment of serious conditions like PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, and Stress.
Major league athletes, musicians, artists, Navy SEALS, Green Berets, Air Force Pilots, long-distance runners and pro athletes are just some examples of people who use floating to improve performance through deep physical and mental rest.
We are none of those things and we love it too...
Members Come for First Time Rate as often as they like.
The Private Salt Room
Our Private Salt Room (left) works in the same way, is a little faster at 25 minutes, and allows you to remove your clothes if you wish to get the salt to improve your skin in addition to helping your respiratory system. It's perfect if you're pressed for time but still want to clean out your Respiratory System and get some calm into your day.
The Total Reset (for 1 or 2)
By far our most popular offering.
Why do one thing, when you can relax, reset and rewind with everything?
This is the perfect spa day experience, lasting approximately 3 hours. You'll start with your choice of The Himalayan Salt Room or Private Salt Room, to open and cleanse your respiratory system, followed by 45 minutes increasing your white blood cell count and sweating out toxins from deep down in our Infrared Sauna. You will end your day with an hour float in our bespoke open-tank float pool, soaking up 1,250 lbs of Epsom Salt with little or no sensory stimulus.
Your respiratory system and your mind will be reset, your circulatory system will be boosted, your skin will be revitalized and you will be ready to face the world again with renewed peace and tranquility. You get that post-vacation feeling after only 3 hours of Resetting Your Self.
Prices: $169 Spa Day for One (save $34 on standard prices), $289 Spa Day for Two (Save $107 on Standard Prices) and $119 a month for members.
For your first Total Reset please email or call to book after purchasing online, or we can handle it all on the phone, while answering any questions you may have - thank you!
The Breathing Rooms Takeover!
The Breathing Rooms Takeover allows you and your group to have the entire Breathing Rooms to yourselves for 3 1/2 Hours.
The Takeover is the ultimate spa day for families and groups of friends to chill out and celebrate a special occasion. You can move between our healing rooms at will, with a concierge to explain how each service works and to ensure everything is ready for you as go.
Most groups like to start together in the Himalayan Salt Room before splitting up to use the Infrared Sauna, Open-Tank Float Room and Private Salt Room.
Wellness is never one and done. Our patrons tell us repeating the therapies we provide in a short time frame tends to extend the benefits for a longer time. If you feel better after your first visit or two, we have designed our memberships so you save you up to 44% on our standard prices! There is no joining fee and memberships are sharable with family and friends, so you can bring people you care about to reset together. If you need extra passes any month, they are always at your discounted membership rate.
Who Needs Groupon?
We keep our prices low as possible, especially with Bundles like the Total Reset. And our memberships mean you can come for as little as $25 per visit. If it's your first visit, we have some online specials for you that are better than anything you will find with a middleman like Groupon. Just buy your pass or passes below and make a booking.
Why We're Great >
As a Holistic Nurse Health and Wellness Coach I believe in the power of alternative modalities like salt, floating, and infrared heat. I have looked for a place as unique as the breathing rooms for quite some time and was very happy when I found them.
My husband and I went and enjoyed the most amazing 45mins in the salt room. We came out refreshed and peaceful. Our experience was wonderful, Marc and Melissa (who's first day it was) were so knowledge and accommodating.
The facility is clean, smelled amazing and just had this vibe of serenity to it. This truly is a place of meditative spiritual health.
I cannot wait to go back and enjoy the breathing space the breathing rooms have to offer!!!!

Attending a session at The Breathings Rooms was one of the BEST investments I have ever made in my wellness journey. From the moment you walk in to their beautiful facility in Shrewsbury, Mark greets you with a smile and a cup of tea.
The decor is comfortable and modern, a balance I find many businesses can not do correctly. The Float room itself was crystal clean, and so relaxing. I have raved to all of my friends to come here.
If you are on the fence, BOOK IT!

Wonderful atmosphere and staff. Mark and Tara really had done a terrific job at making the place beautiful, welcoming and beyond serene. We used their sauna and salt room and both experiences was just perfect.
We cannot wait to try the float room and to make our visits to The Breathing Rooms a regular part of our lives.
Everything we do is about increasing your health. So, at times like this we know you need our services even more. Before reopening we made several changes and adopted accepted best-practices to ensure you are as safe as possible while you visit. Also, we are now happy to report that all of our team have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
Thank you to all of our Members and customers who replied to our Customer Survey. We appreciate and are adopting what you wanted to feel safe. Our customers are very smart--your suggestions are inline with, and some surpassed what is required by the CDC.
Here's how we are making sure Covid-19 doesn't spread at The Breathing Rooms: HHH
We're already on top of disinfecting our rooms, common areas and all surfaces carefully between each user. It's just what we've always done. In our new world we are redoubling our efforts to ensure you are in as clean an environment as we can possibly provide. We use a 100% chemical-free plant derived antibacterial and antiviral called Decon 30.
One person at a time will be admitted to reception and common areas.
Staff will be there to take care of you, of course, but all communication will be from behind a perspex screen.
All staff will wear masks at all times.
You may hear us singing "Happy Birthday" as we wash our hands.
We will stagger appointments so that you don't see anyone you didn't arrive with from your household.
Masks are mandatory in these areas and you can remove your mask when you enter your therapy room.
If you forget to put your mask back on when in the general area, you will be reminded once. The second time will result in your being asked to leave, without refund.
This rule is in line with the guidance from the State of NJ to protect our community, team and our customers.
We hear you say overwhelmingly you would like to use your own towels and robes for now.
We will still provide them if you wish but they will have a $10 per person high-temperature wash fee.
We will ask you to take your temperature as you arrive, to ensure it is not elevated, using an easy to use infrared thermometer.
Appointments and payments will be processed in advance online.
We will email you some simple steps once you make a booking.
We have automated soap and hand sanitizer dispensers.
All visitors must use the hand sanitizer before entering any shared space.
