Salt Therapy also known as Halotherapy, which is new to Australia, this technique dates back many centuries and attempts to create the atmosphere of a salt mine.

As salt possesses unique healing properties this innovative technique is suitable for people of all ages, with children and adults alike able to benefit. Our therapy room is saturated with salt on the floor and micro-granuals in the air.

This saturation has a unique quality that is beneficial for people who suffer from a wide range of respiratory and skin conditions. These inclue Asthma,Bronchitis, Emphysema, Hay Fever, Pheumonia and COPD along with Psoriasis and Eczema


Vibrosaun lets the whole body vibrate pleasantly, massages it, so to speak and simultaneously warms it, excluding the head. The head can be kept cool by adjustable,  double sided ventilation.

A session of forty five minutes in the Vibrosaun will leave you feeling incredibly relaxed and less stressed.  Muscle pains, back pains, painful and stiff joints, over-tiredness and stress symptoms disappear or decline clearly after one or more treatments. This makes the feeling of wellbeing increase and therefor you better for it.


Floatation Tanks are being used by the Golden State Warriors, New England Patriots, Geelong Football Club just to name a few.

Floatation is a widely accepted way of treating a number of conditions and ailments, including mental and physical health.

Some people even use floating for general wellbeing and catching up on sleep! The great thing is that floating is suitable for all ages.

Myotherapy is the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions, which may cause muscular dysfunction and pain thus affecting movement and mobility. Myotherapists utilise a range of treatment techniques to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia).


Reiki is a hands on healing and relaxation method that uses 'universal energy' (or chi) to both correct energetic imbalances in the body and recharge energetically depleted areas.

Reiki can also provide a path (much like Buddhism) to enlightenment.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)

EFT is tool for deep healing and transformation. It utilises the mind-body connection and provides stress relief very quickly. EFT offers you a way to safely and permanently transform your emotional and physical difficulties leaving you feeling lighter, more positive, ​self assured and empowered. Proven results with anxiety, depression, anger issues, stress, fears, trauma and overwhelm.

Belinda works with clients at Ballarat Salt Rooms to help them overcome barriers to feeling confident and calm and helps them create a life they love. See her website for more information. www.belindabucknell.com

Access Bars

Access Bars is an energy process where the head is lightly touched on various areas to release the old energy. This dynamic process will not only leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed as if you have had a deep restful sleep but it can also change your life in the same way meditation does only faster and easier.There are 32 bars of energy that run through and around your head. They store the energetic component of the thoughts, ideas, attitudes, decisions and beliefs that you have ever had about anything. 

By gently touching the head and running energy through these Bars, barriers dissipate and the electromagnetic charge is released. Releasing stuck energy is like defragging your computer and deleting old files. You have more space to create something new and wonderful! 

Belinda offers both EFT sessions and AccessBars sessions and uses her counselling and coaching skills alongside the energy work. See her website for more information. www.belindabucknell.com

Awesome massage. "Had a fantastic massage with Rebecca yesterday. Rebecca has a great technique that has relIEved me of pain. Highlighly recommend!"

"Visted for the first time. Was very relaxing. Look forward to returning in a few weeks. Thanks"

"Thanks for having us for a two hour session. The Vibrosaun/Saltroom combo was perfect. We'll definitely be back."

There is something nice about blocking everything out for 60minutes. I relax, unwind, become calm and let myself rest during a float session. I look forward to my next float.

Best thing to help clear colds. I've visited the Ballarat Salt Rooms twice now - both times when I've had a head cold & chest congestion. After leaving I instantly feel clearer, not as nasally & it helped cleared up my cold so much faster. Highly recommended.

Salt Room. Worth its Salt!I went to the Salt Room & Wellness Centre today for the first time. As I have a respiratory condition I thought I would try it out. I found Ray pleasant & informative. The 50mins in the salt room were very relaxing & I ended up dozing on the comfortable recliner. I found the whole experience enjoyable. As I didn't have any current respiratory symptoms I can't see a great difference, but I definitely will be back when these crop up and I will certainly recommend this therapy to my friends

My itch has subsided considerably since my visit to the Salt Rooms, I am going to book for next week again and also try the flotation tank! Could not fault service.

Excellent service, quality treatment (massage), and overall a relaxing experience.

Salt Therapy Floatation Review: First time exp with floatation therapy and totally hooked already, left nice and rejuvenated like i had slept for hours!

Great float Really enjoyed the float and I am looking forward to my next one

Very relaxing, I had the best nights' sleep in a long time

Very relaxing experience. Felt really clear and relaxed after salt and Vibrosaun treatments! Thank you.


Ray made me feel very welcome from the moment I arrived. I had booked online and was apprehensive. I filled in the very comprehensive form and Ray personally went through it all with me, discussing the benefits, how it works and any potential side effects. He answered all of my questions (there were many) patiently and made me feel at ease. The treatment itself was strange at first but I felt very comfortable. I feel the session has benefited me already and am looking forward to going again. Thanks

Had a Vibrosaun. Unreal! very relaxing, walked out buzzing

This was such a lovely and relaxing experience for both myself and my sister in law I am definitely feeling better than I did before I came in. After leaving I realized we didn't receive our discount for booking under my mother in laws emailed link though. We will definitely be back again and will be recomending to friends and family.

Absolutely love coming to the salt rooms. My asthma has improved so much after just a couple of sessions that I've been able to start training again. Well done to Ray for running such a great business!

Honestly the best place ever, it has helped Peighton with her eczema and Cooper with his sleeping. I couldn't recommend this place high enough, not only is it child friendly, affordable, relaxing but the guy Ray that runs it is just lovely!

Wonderful business we are lucky to have in Ballarat. My daughter has had great results with her health from our visits and the staff are outstanding. Highly recommend.

Vicky R 

Totally relaxing time, and the relief from my chest and nose could be felt after just one session :)

Jaki C 

1 session and amazing results already, thanks guys!

I first experience salt rooms in Sydney to treat sinus and strengthen my respiratory system before returning home to a Ballarat winter. I was very pleased to learn that the Ballarat Salt Rooms had been established. After two sessions at the Ballarat Salt Rooms, it has worked wonders for my sinus condition. I sleep and breathe so much better, It is also such a relaxing environment – just sitting or reading for 50 min in a peaceful room amongst the salt had an added therapeutic affect. I look forward to some more sessions to strengthen my respiratory system before the cold weather sets in. Highly recommended.

Thank you Ballarat Salt Rooms for seeing my four year old who was in pain with her eczema before you open next week. The difference after one session is amazing. She hasn't mentioned it being sore at all anymore and hasn't cried when it gets wet like she was doing. Will definitely be back for more treatments!!

Steph D 

Prior to a session in the ‘Salt Room’ I had a very addible “chest wheeze”, half way through the session I no longer had a “wheeze” and did not for the rest of that day and well into the next week, a Positive Result for me.

Roma S 

Incredible benefits in what you provide! Highly recommend! I always look forward to my salt therapy sessions so love your work Ray and Wendy!  (Very happy customer!)

Grace Y 

I would highly recommend Ballarat salt rooms , after suffering terribly from asthma and hay fever for several months, I received great relief from symptoms after the first visit. It is also very relaxing .

Sue K 

I think the Ballarat Salt Rooms are amazing and run very professionally, not to mention that staff are very accommodating!!

Mandy S 

I brought my son Tom along to the salt rooms as he has bronchial issues particularly when he gets a cold. As his cough started I took him to the salt rooms and his cough disappeared in one session. I thought it was amazing. Silvia

Wonderful experience. Benefits felt within first session.

Tamara S 

I very much enjoyed my Saltrooms experience and look forward to making another group booking to again be able to enjoy the experience.


I think it is fabulous to have another alternative health option in Balllarat. If anyone mentions eczema or asthma to me I tell them immediately about you! :)

Naomi I 

Had the best night sleep after the first session in a long time!


10/7/15 Twice now I have had painful blocked sinuses relieved after a single salt room session.

More effective for me than facial massage, steam inhalation and nasal douching. Sandra H

25/6/15 Had my first session at Ballarat Salt Rooms Tuesday what a great experience.

Dragged my husband along had the room to ourselves thought we would have to bring along a book and sit around waiting for the 50 minutes to be up. Not so It was fabulous main lights went out but ambient salt lamps remained on. There are 2 massage chairs so we had one each. Time to relax and breathe in the great effects of the salt therapy. 50 minutes later the lights came back on and my husband was snoring lightly away. Have already booked for another 2 sessions. Just do it how fortunate are we to have this here in Ballarat. Caz

14/6/15 A relaxing oasis. My chest is clearer. Can't wait to go back! Karen A

16/5/15 wow!! what a gentle refreshing experience ;-) Took my parents to this fantastic Salt Room and we all came away feeling awesome...thank you Ray :-) wishing you all the very best to a successful business future….your intentions are very honourable. Leanne

12/5/15 Ray and the team at Ballarat Salt Rooms have been very helpful to us with our now 11 month old son. He was constantly getting sick with viruses causing rashes, chesty coughs and a congested nose. A friend recommended the salt rooms as a natural alternative to creams and Panadol. After two visits each time he was sick, he cleared up within 24 hours and coughed less at night, but more notable was the improvement in my partner's chesty cough that he had for 4 weeks (which was driving me nuts!) I highly recommend this for any family with young children who are struggling through a virus or the flu season. It certainly wont hurt! Cara, Ballarat

30/4/15 Thankyou. Feeling so much better after being miserable with a terrible cold. Has really helped to clear it up, breathing much easier. Highly recommend. Rebecca W
