Epic Nutrition - Northern Minnesota’s only Himalayan Salt Room & Shake Shop

Updated: Dec 9, 2021

Epic Nutrition & Salt Room, located at 10 N 12th Street, is unlike any other local shake shop and juice bar. Yes, they have a full menu of protein shakes with four different protein options (Exante, Legion, Thrive, and Vega) and various flavors of tea and juices, award-winning beauty products by Nuskin, but the salt room makes this place unique.

Kari Lewis has owned this small business since 2013, and she loves running her own business. Her favorite part of business ownership is meeting new people and providing them with a quick healthy meal and salt room experience. She experienced a salt room in Minneapolis and decided to bring that experience to northern Minnesota.

The salt room, Halotherapy, is the newest health trend in the United States and is available right here in Cloquet. Halotherapy has been around for hundreds of years in Europe. Thousands of salt rooms and caves are operating to provide salt therapy experiences. Halotherapy is a drug-free and all-natural, non-invasive treatment that improves the overall effectiveness of the immune system and is used to alleviate a multitude of health conditions.

So how does it work? A machine called a halo generator grinds salt to the size of 1-5 micrometers to produce a dry salt aerosol. While sitting in the room for 45 minutes, the fine salt can travel to the deepest part of the lungs in addition to other parts of the respiratory tract. As salt enters the lungs and respiratory tract, it dissolves the bacteria and pollutants and works to get rid of the mucous and open constricted airways. Salt therapy can treat allergies, asthma, breathing difficulties, chest tightness, bronchitis, cold/flu prevention, COPD, ear infections, eczema, hay fever, psoriasis, rhinitis, sinusitis, smokers cough, snoring, sleep apnea. Halotherapy helps you breathe, feel & sleep better.

When you enter the salt room, you will be simply amazed at this space. It is unlike anything you have seen. But, you must see it to believe it. So, be prepared to leave feeling rejuvenated with this authentic one-of-a-kind experience. Salt therapy is not just for adults. It can be helpful and fun for kids too. You can bring toys and books to keep kids entertained during their 45-minute session.

Salt therapy appointments are taken on the hour and will last 45 minutes. The salt room is open Monday - Friday from 8 am - 3 pm and Saturday from 9 am - 1 pm. You can purchase single sessions or purchase a package of 3, 6, or 12 sessions for a discounted package price. They even offer a "Salt Room Spa Package." You can come to the salt room by yourself, or come with a group. The salt room is a must-have experience.

While at Epic nutrition, you can also purchase the Nuskin anti-aging skincare products. Some of the products they carry in the store are body butter, firming cream, sole solutions, tanner, and toothpaste.

Stop in and see Kari and her team today. Then, have a shake and tea, grab some whitening toothpaste and firming cream, and schedule an appointment in the salt room. A gift certificate for the Christmas stocking is always a great idea also.
