About

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.

 

Each therapy room is private to you/your guests and we stagger appointments so you don't encounter other people as you come and go.

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. 

 

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.

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.

In addition to having a calming, stress-reducing effect on your body, the World Halotherapy Association sees Dry Salt Therapy as a compliment to conventional medical treatments for all type of lung conditions (Allergies, Asthma, Bronchitis, Sinusitis, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis, Hay Fever, Emphysema, Pneumonia, Rhinitis, Sinusitis, Smoker’s Cough, Sleep Apnea, Snoring, Ear infections, Laryngitis, Sore throat, and Tonsillitis).
 
You can book it on its own or as part of our Total Reset Bundle, or Breathing Rooms Takeover, which uses the Himalayan Salt Room, Infrared Sauna and Open-Tank Floatation Room in sequence, for over 3 hours of restorative, healthy bliss.

 

Takeovers and Group Salt Room Sessions are popular option for friends and family groups of 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.​​)  

Price: $49 for a 45 Minute Session.   Members come as often as they like for as little as $33 per session.

The Infrared Sauna Room

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.

Prices: $59 for a 45 Min Session, $89 for Two.   Members come as often as they like for as little as $33 per session.

The Open-Tank Float Room

Just peace...  It's very hard to describe how relaxed and safe you feel when you are floating in our 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 1,300 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, as your brain waves get longer (scientists call this the "Theta State").  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, elite military members and long-distance runners 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...

Prices: $85 for a 60 Min Session/ $129 for two. Members come as often as they like for $69 per 60 Min session and can extend sessions to 90 mins (frequent floaters often like longer sessions). The Float Room is the third part of our Total Reset Package.

Our Salt Booth Room works in the same way as The Himalayan Salt Room, but is a little faster at 25 minutes.  We also add a small amount of baking soda and eucalyptus (Sanasal) to the pure salt solution here, as it is more suitable for acute issues that require more direct healing. 

 

It's perfect if you're pressed for time but still want to get some stress reduction and healing into your day. This room also allows you to remove your clothes if you wish to get the salt to improve your skin, in addition to helping your respiratory system. The booth goes through a relaxing cycle of chromotherapeutic lights as you breathe, (leading Jen, a professional writer and long time member to christen it "The Star Trek Booth".) 

 

Did you know it takes about 25 mins to cool down fully after using our powerful Infrared Sauna (above)? Many clients like to schedule the Salt Booth Room after their Sauna so they can cool down while getting all that healing salt into their lungs and onto their skin.

 

Price: $49 for a 45 Minute Session  $79 for Two    Members come as often as they like for as little as $33 per session.

The Total Reset (for 1 or 2)

The Total Reset Day Spa block image showing the same blond woman in The Breathing Rooms Infrared Sauna, Private Salt Booth, Himalayan Salt Room and open float pool.

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.  The Total Reset sequence works for one or two people.  If there are 3-6 people in your party, the "Breathing Rooms Takeover" will make more sense.

Prices:  $189 Spa Day for One (save $34 on standard prices), $289 Spa Day for Two (Save $107 on Standard Prices) and $139 a month for members.

 

For your first Total Reset we can handle it all on the phone if your prefer, while answering any questions you may have.

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.

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!!!!

Luxurious experience

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!
