SALTainer™ will help horses combat respiratory and skin conditions to enhance performance
Boca Raton, FL – SALT Chamber, the pioneer in providing halotherapy access to horses (equine salt therapy) and pets, has partnered with Eclipse Equine Sports Therapy Center to bring salt therapy to Santa Anita Park by designing and building a SALTainer™, which transforms shipping containers into transportable and permanent salt therapy concepts.
Shipping containers have been used by renowned architects in developing homes, offices, and even portable emergency medical centers, and now, SALT Chamber has developed them into salt therapy rooms. The first SALT Chamber SALTainer™ project, the SALT BOX, was built and designed in Lincolnshire, United Kingdom earlier this year, and now the first one is being installed at the Santa Anita Park for the equine industry.
Equipped with SALT Chamber’s trademarked SALT FX® halogenerators, these shipping containers are environmentally controlled and equipped with stable partitions, chest bars, and other unique features specifically designed for horses and pets.
A halogenerator is a machine that grinds, crushes, and disperses pure-grade sodium chloride into micron-sized dry salt aerosol particles that are inhaled into the respiratory system and absorbed by the skin.
Angie and Mike Scully, the owners of Eclipse Equine Sports Therapy Center, said “We’ve been using SALT Chamber’s equipment for several years in our mobile horse trailer with great results and we are very excited to be working with the Santa Anita Park to provide a more enhanced salt therapy modality for the equine industry”.
According to the Salt Therapy Association, dry salt therapy (aka halotherapy) is a natural, drug-free therapy that helps combat respiratory issues such as equine asthma, heaves, Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO), and skin conditions like dermatitis, boils, mud fever, and ringworm. Salt therapy also improves cardiovascular performance, endurance, and recovery.
Leo Tonkin, CEO of SALT Chamber commented, “We’ve been partnering with top trainers, owners, veterinarians, and facilities from around the world to create equine salt therapy concepts in permanent stables and mobile trailers for close to 8 years and designing and installing our new SALTainer™ at Santa Anita Park with the Scully’s is a huge accomplishment for everyone involved.”
SALT Chamber’s clients include: Patrick and Andie Biancone who’s horse Sole Volante was in the recent 2020 Kentucky Derby, Rookery Equine Spa and Therapy in the UK, Vaccarezza Racing Stables, JRs Equine Spa and Retreat, and many others.
