Natural Awakenings New York City

Dry Salt Therapy Now in Manhattan

Breathe Easy’s Wellness Center has opened a new Manhattan location, providing adults and children dry salt therapy, a holistic, side-effect and drug-free treatment to help relieve respiratory and skin issues while promoting relaxation. Breathe Easy was founded by NYC entrepreneurs Gary Patrick, senior vice president of advertising for Skechers, and his wife, certified yoga therapist and breathing expert Ellen Patrick.

“Dry salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, simulates the beneficial effects of salt caves, which have been used for centuries to improve health and overall wellness,” Gary Patrick says. “Salt is a natural and effective antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and anti-inflammatory mineral.” After exploring several of the dry salt therapy rooms in Europe and learning about their extensive positive aspects, the Patrick’s wanted to offer Manhattan a natural alternative to relieving the symptoms of respiratory and skin ailments.

He says adults and children who suffer from various respiratory and skin conditions, including allergies, asthma, sinus infections, eczema, psoriasis, colds and flus, have reported that dry salt therapy is a very effective addition to their overall wellness regimens. The treatment also helps decrease stress and snoring and ease sleep apnea, he says. “Dry salt therapy is the sole treatment that truly detoxifies the lungs, giving Breathe Easy consumers the chance to cleanse their airways and reduce inflammation while relaxing at the same time,” he says. “I have had allergies since I was a kid, three nasal surgeries, and sinus infections and took Z-Paks three to five times a year. Dry Salt Therapy has been a big boost for my breathing and skin. It stopped my sleep apnea and reduced my snoring.”

Upon entering Breathe Easy’s One Park Avenue location, visitors can come in their street clothes and relax while breathing micro particles of dry salt for 45 minutes. The salt is ground into tiny particles by a state-of-the-art halogenerator and then infused into the salt rooms. The One Park Avenue location also houses a salt bed for private, individual treatments.

Breathe Easy is located One Park Place, New York, NY. For more info, visit or call 917.400.7258.
