Carpe Diem: Salt therapy
The word salty has taken on different connotations besides those associated with food or high blood pressure. In urban slang, salty is now an adjective associated with being grouchy or annoyed.tAnd in the world of alternative medicine, the word salty is associated with clean lungs.
In this segment of Carpe Diem, we take you into the Southwest Salt Room in Las Cruces. This is a local and family owned business seeking accreditation to become the only certified Salt Room business in New Mexico. The luminescent and quiet business consists of a small lobby featuring a plethora of pamphlets espousing the benefits of salt therapy, and a gallery of salt lamps that both illuminate the room and are the only merchandise for sale.
