The Salt Therapy Clinic & Sanctuary is founded in March 2020 in Canberra, the Capital City of Australia. Originally situated within the leading wellness collective, Rest and Recovery Centre with a gym, Strive Strength & Conditioning on site, it has now relocated to Gold Creek Square in Nicholls as of January 2021 within MMM Wellness that offers Massage, Yoga, Taichi and Qigong. We are pleased to be the latest addition to add to the repertoire of complementary services at MMM Wellness.
“My Vision for The Salt Therapy Clinic & Sanctuary is to create a safe ‘Good Vibes only’ space that is calming and peaceful for people to come in to Breathe, Relax and Heal.“– Connie Ng, Founder
About the Founder
As a chronic sinusitis and eczema sufferer, The Salt Therapy Clinic & Sanctuary Founder, Connie Ng has enjoyed symptomatic relief and the natural healing benefits of undergoing Halotherapy (Dry Salt Therapy) treatment sessions. When a serendipitous opportunity came for her to purchase a Salt Therapy Cabin, she decided to do so for her own healing and to keep Halotherapy as an alternative treatment alive in Canberra. As a Businesswoman whom is increasingly embracing a more spiritual lifestyle on her personal journey where she has started to meditate regularly, she felt that it was a natural progression to add Holistic Health and Wellness into her repertoire of businesses that integrates the Mind, Body and Spirit to optimise one’s physical and mental well-being.
Key Areas of Focus:
Respiratory | Dermatology | Sports Performance | Sports Recovery | Pain Management |Relaxation | Sleep | Natural Therapy
The Salt Therapy Clinic & Sanctuary is currently the only Halotherapy clinic in Canberra.
Halotherapy may influence & benefit:
Respiratory Health | Skin Health | Overall Immune Health | Mental & Emotional Acuity | Cardiovascular Health | Athletic Performance | General Wellness | Stress Reduction
Connie is very keen to create awareness and share the natural healing benefits of Halotherapy to assist a wide range of people within the Canberra community. This includes athletes, children, the elderly, wellness practitioners and people suffering from respiratory and skin conditions or undergoing mental stress. She can relate to these people and understands how that can be very emotionally debilitating, which impacts on one’s general wellness and the overall quality of life.
The Salt Therapy Clinic & Sanctuary is a proud Executive Member of both International Institute for Complementary Therapists (IICT) and World Halotherapy Association (WHA). Connie had liaised closely with the WHA founder and Physician, Dr. Cindy Hollenbeck and current Executive Director, Erin Lee to ensure that she is kept abreast with industry knowledge about Halotherapy backed by up-to-date scientific and clinical research . She remains active within the Halotherapy professional network in Australia to incorporate best practices to her clinic.
“I’ve been suffering from severe eczema and psoriasis all my life. I have tried many different methods to ease the symptoms with little success. Connie recommended salt therapy to me and I have noticed significant improvements with just a few sessions. It’s also a great place to relax after a long day.”– J. Kung, IT Professional, Woden
