Salt is trending. Just ask co-owner of Salt Method, Rebekah Stokely. “We offer pilates and yoga in a therapeutic Himalayan salt-infused atmosphere,” she explains.
In addition to classes, Salt Method has an extensive menu of spa services. Eastern Lymphatic Massage is one of the most popular, proven to reduce and alleviate chronic stress disorders. Stokely says in many cases, lymphatic massage better treats injuries over traditional massages because it decreases the inflammation allowing the injury to heal faster. Other benefi ts include boosting the immune system to help recover from colds, sinus infections, low energy or allergies and stress.

For anyone that suffers from insomnia or other sleep issues, you know that getting a good night’s sleep makes all the difference in how you feel.
According to Park City resident and Intellibed CEO, Colin House, optimum sleep requires two things. “First, you need a bed that is really firm to keep your back in alignment;’ said House. “But just as important, you need a bed that is really soft to reduce pressure points and to prevent tossing and turning for a fully-restorative sleep.”
Intellibed has solved this issue by introducing a mattress that is both firm and soft at the same time. According to House, “Intellibed’s Gel Matrix ™ technology is an engineering phenomenon that is soft enough to reduce pressure points–up to 60% more than regular memory foam. Yet it’s three times firmer for maximum back support and spinal alignment.”
