Chambers’ Wellness Center is Now Fully Operational

Today is the official opening of Chambers’ Wellness Center, located on the second floor of Chambers’ Apothecary in downtown Chambersburg! With the completion of our upstairs renovations, Chambers’ Wellness Center is a complimentary facility to Chambers’ Apothecary, and it is a logical step towards bringing patients to optimal health using natural and holistic approaches.

We previously opened our Salt Cave to the public as part of a “soft” opening throughout the month of September, and we have gradually expanded our offerings as the construction was completed. Our services now include Ionic Footbaths, an Infrared Sauna, Massage Therapy, a Himalayan Salt Cave and a variety of Wellness Consultation Packages.

Let me give you a quick tour of what you will find when you schedule an appointment with Chambers’ Wellness Center.

1. Ionic Footbaths

Inside the first door on your right is our Ionic Footbath room. During a footbath session, an electrical current will pass through a set of plates in the bath emitting positive and negative ions to re-energize and detoxify the body. The water in the baths contains a special sea salt and has the mineral concentration of ocean water.

You will immediately experience the relaxation of the footbath, but it will continue detoxifying the body for up three days after the session. The footbath package can be enhanced to include a foot massage and essential oils.

2. Infrared Sauna

Our Infrared Sauna uses Near, Mid and Far Infrared wavelengths to penetrate deep into body tissues maximizing your detox session. While the process does use heat to trigger sweating (your body’s safe and natural detox method), it is a gentle, soothing heat that promotes relaxation.

In addition to being a soothing way to detox, Infrared Saunas offer other benefits including lower blood pressure, skin rejuvenation, cell health, weight loss, pain relief, improved circulation and wound healing. Sessions are either 30 or 60 minutes, and we offer light and sound therapy as an added option.

3. Massage Therapy

Across the hallway, we offer a variety of Massage Therapies including Lymphatic Massage and AromaTouch® Technique. Massage Therapy is a relaxing experience, but you might not be aware that it is also very beneficial for detoxifying the body, and it can help to relieve symptoms such as headaches, myalgia and fatigue.

Sessions can either be 30 or 60 minutes, and the Lymphatic Massage and AromaTouch Technique can be administered separately or in conjunction. Additionally, hot stones can be added on to complete the experience.

4. Himalayan Salt Cave

At the end of the hall is our Himalayan Salt Cave. Salt Caves are a powerful therapeutic healing health remedy for guests of all ages, and it is the equivalent of spending a day at the ocean breathing in the fresh air. Our Salt Cave experience includes 17,000 pounds of Himalayan salt, twinkling lights, soothing music and a radiant heat floor to help guests get the most of their experience.

We offer a variety of Salt Cave experiences including Yoga, Mommy & Me, Children’s Sessions, Massage Therapy and Guided Meditation Sessions. Sessions are 45 minutes long, and when the session is complete, guests can exit the cave and go about their day feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed.

5. Consultations

One of the overriding missions of both Chambers’ Wellness Center and Chambers’ Apothecary is to educate the community so they can make their own health-based decisions. To achieve this requires us to develop our patients’ general wellness knowledge while providing them with a clear picture of their own health.

An Educational Consultation includes a general overview of nutrition, supplements and essential oils. An Advanced Consultation uses a detailed history to develop a program using nutrition, pH testing, Bach Flower remedies and essential oils. I also provide Lyme Disease and Chronic Illness Consultations that include an education on the specific illness and a plan of action including nutrition, pH testing and nutraceuticals.

Appointments and Packages

We encourage guests of Chambers’ Wellness Center – whether they are individuals or a group – to contact us to schedule their appointments in advance for as many of our services as they wish. We offer packages that are contoured to our customers’ needs and specifications.

Breathe, Relax and Escape in our Himalayan Salt Cave

Chambers’ Wellness Center is excited to announce the completion and opening of our Himalayan Salt Cave! We’ve already had our first guests try it out this afternoon, and we look forward to introducing more people to halotherapy every day.

For the month of September 2017, your first session with us is free! Keep reading to learn more about the features and benefits of our Himalayan Salt Cave and how you can make an appointment.

The cave is one part of our larger upstairs renovation project that will increase our overall wellness offerings. The installation of the cave took two weeks, and it boasts more than 17,000 pounds of salt that was imported from the Himalayan Mountains.

Here is a quick guide to our Himalayan Salt Cave and what you can expect when you make an appointment with us.

What are some of the benefits of our Himalayan Salt Cave?

Salt caves promote energy and vitality while relaxing and calming the nervous and lymphatic systems. They are a great way to boost your positive moods. They are antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory.

It’s equivalent to spending a day at the ocean breathing in the ocean air – without the exposure to dangerous UV rays. Salt is a powerful therapeutic healing health remedy for guests of all ages. Plus, you no longer have to go down into an actual cave or travel all the way to the beach to receive the benefits. You can come up to our second-floor wellness center and spend an afternoon relaxing and investing in your health.

Besides salt, what are some of the cave’s other features?

In addition to the (literal) tons of Himalayan salt, relaxing music plays from speakers that are discretely built into the cave’s ceiling. As far as outside noise is concerned, the room is heavily padded, and we strive to keep the upstairs wellness area as Zen-like as possible.

Additionally, the ceiling is dotted with thousands of small lights that resemble twinkling stars. There are also lights in the walls that add a warm ambience throughout the cave, and a string of lights along the floor near the entrance of the cave indicating where there is a small step.

Our cave is also equipped with a radiant heat floor for when you bury your toes into the salt.

Most importantly, though, air is blown into the room through a series of vents so the salt is experienced at a higher concentration to maximize the benefits.

How does the process work?

We ask that guests arrive approximately 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment, and we will greet them and get them signed in. We provide secure lockers for guests to place any personal items – phones and other devices are not permitted inside the cave.

Shoes are also not permitted inside the cave, but guests are encouraged to wear socks or socks can be provided.

Sessions are 45 minutes long, and clients can spend that time however they wish, whether it is relaxing, meditating or sleeping. Blankets are also provided to make the experience as cozy as possible.

When the session is complete, guests can exit the cave and go about their day feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed.

Who should consider salt therapy?

Salt therapy is a natural, safe and beneficial experience for people of all ages. Accordingly, we offer a variety of Himalayan Salt Cave experiences including Yoga, Mommy & Me, Children’s Sessions, Massage Therapy and Guided Meditation sessions.

It is also an opportunity to host a truly unique private party, meeting or bridal party.
