This New Summit Spa Offers Virtual Reality, Salt Room Therapy

Andrew M. Santos

SUMMIT, NJ — My Mind Well, a new “MedSpa” that recently opened its doors in Summit, is taking wellness to a whole new level — from IV drip therapy that can cure the most horrific of hangovers to a virtual reality experience that calms the mind.

Dr. Narveen Dosanjh — the founder and CEO of My Mind Well — is a board-certified medical doctor and psychiatrist who practiced for many years in Manhattan before deciding to open a business in Summit that merges science with wholistic medicine.

“I wanted to kind of get out of the city environment,” Dosanjh said. “And then I found myself in New Jersey, [wanting] to … bring this very unique integrative model to the New Jersey space.”

This integrative model is seen in the variety of services My Mind Well offers. People can go in for traditional relaxation and spa treatments, such as massage therapy using CBD creams, or they can go in for a psychiatry session with a licensed therapist.

Dosanjh said there aren’t many wellness spas that combine things like psychiatry with salt room therapy and yoga all in one place. In particular, Dosanjh said My Mind Well’s Himalayan salt room is the only one in the local New Jersey area.

According to the spa’s website, the origins of salt room therapy — or halotherapy — date back to the medieval era, but researchers only recently started studying its potential benefits. A device, called a halogenerator, grinds salt into microscopic particles and releases them into the air of the room.

Once a person inhales, these salt particles are claimed to help absorb irritants — including allergens and toxins — from the respiratory system. Advocates of salt therapy say this process breaks up mucus and reduces inflammation, resulting in clear airways.

“When you’re in the Himalayan salt room, you’ll walk away feeling like you just visited the beach,” Dosanjh said. “It’s very relaxing [and] destressing.”

While in the salt room, Dosanjh said people can have whatever treatment they’d like, whether it’s a massage or an integrated wellness consult. In these consults, therapists will assess what kind of service a customer may need.

For example, if someone lacking in certain vitamins or nutrients, they may suggest IV drip therapy, which is the intravenous administration of vitamins, minerals and nutrients directly into one’s bloodstream. My Mind Well offers a variety of IV drip options, from a hangover cure that rehydrates the body to an immune boost that reduces inflammation.

To reduce stress, Dosanjh said the virtual reality therapy can be beneficial, which is meditation and mindful-based. Patients have 40+ lush environments they can choose to escape to through the virtual experience, and Dosanjh said she combines that with a neuro stimulation device that goes on one’s head to calm the nervous system.

“It’s the thing that you would need, when you’re like, ‘I’ve had a stressful day,'” Dosanjh said. “And of course, the first thing we all do to recharge is a glass of wine. Sometimes there’s better ways to deal with it, and what’s great about [virtual reality] is that you get a very strong sensory experience.”

The MedSpa also offers meditation and mind-body kinetics, which is a type of neurogenic yoga that is designed to heal and release stress, pain and trauma throughout the body.

My Mind Well is located on 35 Beechwood Road in Downtown Summit. To learn more about their services, visit their website.
