Due to restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have established the protocols below to ensure the safety of our clients, patients, and staff members. Please make sure you read through the guidelines carefully as we will enforce them strictly and reserve the right to deny service to anyone who does not comply.
Anyone coming into the office is required to wear a face mask (children under four excluded). The mask must be worn at all times except when in the salt cave – please make sure you place mask back on when exiting the salt cave.
***If you, or someone you have been in contact with, has experienced a cough, fever, or any symptom related to COVID-19, please stay at home and refrain from coming to our office until all symptoms have subsided.***
The Salt Spa will not take any walk-in appointments until further notice. Only three unrelated individuals will be allowed in the salt cave per session and double sessions will not be available (unless there is an open spot). If there are individuals living under the same household, we will seat them as a group on one side of the salt cave and seat others on the opposite side of the room. We anticipate to be busy so please call our office to schedule an appointment.
The Salt Spa will no longer provide blankets for use during salt therapy sessions. Outside blankets will not be allowed. Please dress accordingly.
Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy is now available to all clients. Please call our office to schedule your appointment.
PEMF therapy is immediately available for all individuals. Those who schedule a PEMF appointment will be limited to 45 minutes per session to allow staff to sanitize the room and equipment before the next session.
Cold Laser Therapy is also immediately available to all individuals. Call to schedule an appointment as walk-ins will not be permitted.
Lesley Arbour will not be returning for Myofacial Release and Pelvicology sessions indefinitely. For those of you needing to see her, please call our office and we can discuss other options with you.
Dr. Desai prefers to continue seeing patients through telemedicine and phone calls, but is also willing to see patients in-person if they choose to do so. Follow-up forms are to be printed and completed prior to your scheduled in-person appointment. Click here for follow-up form. All patients coming in for an in-person appointment MUST call the office once you arrive in the parking lot, and we will advise you when it is time for you to enter the building. Dr. Desai will wear a face mask and employ social distancing during in-person appointments.
If anyone has been waiting to see Dr. Desai for a follow-up or new patient appointment, call our office and schedule as we do have select openings in the coming weeks. Many of you have referred friends and family in the past to Dr. Desai who were told that she had a long wait list. We are happy to report that all of those on the wait-list have been accommodated and she is now able to see new patients sooner than later.
Times are tough but we are happy to be back in business. We hope you stay safe out there and cannot wait to see you at our office once again. Take care!

The Salt Spa
A Natural Drug-Free Remedy for Asthma, Sinusitis, Hayfever and other Respiratory Illnesses
The Salt Spa is Colorado’s first holistic respiratory treatment center. Salt therapy is 100% natural, safe and drug free. It provides effective long term relief from respiratory ailments.
In Colorado, many people live in a dry, polluted, and pollen-filled environment. As a result, an increasing number of people suffer from asthma, sinusitis, and allergies. We brush our teeth each day and bathe our bodies, but there are few means available to clean out our lungs and respiratory tract.
Respiratory tract hygiene can be achieved using Halotherapy!
Halotherapy clears pollens, viruses, pollutants, and toxins out of the lungs, sinuses, and nasal passageways thus preventing illness, decreasing allergies, irritation, and inflammation in the respiratory tract. Your respiratory tract will feel rejuvenated with the regular use of Halotherapy.
Sessions of salt therapy will also reduce stress, anxiety, and help regulate sleep patterns. Dry salt aerosol therapy or Halotherapy can be used as a complementary treatment to prescribed medications or as a sole treatment. When halotherapy is used as a complementary treatment, it can increase the effectiveness of prescribed medications and decrease their amount. It has been proven effective in multiple clinical trials in treating asthma, sinusitis, and bronchitis.
Due to the overwhelming request of our clients, we cannot provide our salt therapy to any current smokers of any and all tobacco products.
Thank you for your understanding.

Meet the Owner Dr Nita Desai
Nita Desai, M.D. is a family physician and Holistic Medical Doctor. She is a certified Ayurvedic Practitioner and has studied yoga, western nutrition, and complementary medicine. Dr. Desai has been in private practice in Boulder since 1999.
She has been featured in Denver’s 5280 Magazine.
Dr. Desai is uniquely qualified to blend the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda with the latest in modern medical knowledge creating a comprehensive system of personalized healthcare. Her goal is to understand and treat the core imbalances in the body and not simply treat symptoms.
For some time now, she has been researching Halotherapy, a form of treatment for respiratory diseases that has been used in Eastern Europe and Russia for over a century. Dr. Desai was impressed by this scientifically supported and clinically proven method of treatment (Halotherapy). The scientific research was so overwhelmingly positive that she felt an obligation to introduce this treatment to Colorado, where there is a high incidence of asthma and sinusitis. In addition, the treatment is so simple and easy that it requires little or no lifestyle or dietary changes, making it readily accessible and affordable to all individuals. As Dr. Desai researched this therapy, she was drawn to the fact that there were no negative side effects, making it an ideal therapy for children as well as adults.
“This is an amazing new and natural therapy for people like me who have been suffering forever from allergies and chronic sinusitis. One session cleared my earache and sinuses. I highly recommend this therapy!!”
