Welcome to Salternative
A Comfortable, Casual Environment
Featuring the Highest Quality Spa and Holistic Wellness Services
We welcome you to the Fox Valley's top relaxation and holistic wellness center! Beyond a spa, Salternative is a tranquil get away that you can visit any time you need a little peace.
Our passion is to provide the community with a place for peace and connection. You can float into physical and mental bliss, breathe deeply in our salt room, release tension and toxins in our infrared sauna or melt into one of our amazing massages. Enjoy any of our many relaxing and even healing services or classes, rent our space for your own classes or workshops, host a private party or simply hang out in our Relaxation Room to meditation, color, or engage in quiet conversation.
We look forward to seeing you soon for your ultimate experience of peace and pampering at Salternative.
Float effortlessly inside one of our spacious pods on top of ten inches of water with 1,000 pounds of Epsom salts dissolved inside creating a buoyancy and environment that help to relieve pain and physical and emotional stress and improve sleep, mood and overall health and well being.
Breathe in minuscule pure salt particles to improve respiratory function, blood pressure, sleep and more while relaxing in our zero gravity chairs and soaking up those beneficial negative ions from the surrounding Himalayan salt. The tranquility and ease you feel in our Salt Room carries with you even after you leave our little salty oasis of bliss.
A wonderful, and our most popular, Salternative experience.
Bask in soothing and detoxifying infrared rays in our spacious (it fits up to four people), EMF-free, cedar infrared sauna. Our infrared sauna's rays penetrate the skin for maximum effectiveness during your private session. Enjoy one of the best health inducing services available today.
Our light bed is filled with specialized red, blue, UVB and UVA bulbs designed to aid the body in creating its own highly usable vitamin D. Our clients have also reported finding amazing relief from such skin ailments as eczema, psoriasis and more. Known as our "Happy Bed", our light bed has been shown to induce an overall feeling of joy combating the gloom that may result from our area's tendency to create less sunshine during certain times of year.
NEW ADDITION: DreamSpa Light Therapy. Enjoy a sequence of lights as they flash across your head to send your mind and body into relaxation and rejuvenation. Invented by NASA, our DreamSpa is a unique service not offered anywhere else and is a must-try on your next visit to Salternative.
Reiki is a massage for the soul. Our highly trained practitioners work with light to no touch as they guide your energy body into release and flow. Most clients report feeling an unmatched sense of relief and calm. Reiki is an essential component to any self care routine.
Our massage therapists are the best in the business. Each fluid stroke will have you melting into relaxation and bliss. Aches and pains are but a faint memory after one of our professionals works her or his magic on a tired, sore body. Come experience what many of our client's have described to us as "the best massage of my life" (especially paired with a float or sauna experience). Many massage styles are available including our coveted CBD massage.
Reflexology is the practice of nurturing each of the organ systems through the feet and occasionally the hands. We have had clients with chronic migraines or other chronic pains walk away with significant relief after only one session with our highly trained professionals. Your feet will feel singing but your entire system is affected and may relax into flow and harmony. A truly amazing experience with gifted therapists we are proud to showcase.
Our AromaTouch therapy utilizes multiple therapeutic grade DoTerra essential oils along the spine and feet in a specific order to help increase relaxation, immune function and energy while creating an overall sense of calm and ease.
We are proud to work with many talented service providers in our community including:
