Salt Therapy: what is it?
Salt therapy is a natural and non-invasive therapy that can help relieve the symptoms of a wide range of respiratory and skin conditions. Salt is a natural anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antihistamine, so people experiencing everything from asthma to eczema may experience significant and lasting symptom relief following regular salt therapy.
When you sit in a Salt Room or salt cave, a halogenerator grinds up pharmaceutical grade salt into minute particles that become airborne when dispersed into the room. The dry salt aerosol particles are then inhaled deep into your lungs to help relieve inflammation and loosen congestion to allow easier and improved breathing. The salt particles can help to open up the airways, increase oxygen intake and cleanse the airways of smoke, dust, pollutants and other allergens. When the salt lands on the skin it can also help to relieve sore, flaky, red and irritated skin.
Consistency is key when it comes to salt therapy. After regular salt therapy, breathing can become easier and shortness of breath, wheezing, coughing, congestion and irritated skin may gradually be alleviated.
