Itch. Itch. Itch. Scratch. Scratch. Scratch. Hashtag Eczema life.
Eczema is a tricky business. Flares, weeps, triggers. Fighting the urge to scratch your skin off. Feeling sensitive about the visible areas. There’s nothing fun about it.
So here’s an idea; try salt therapy.
Have you ever noticed the positive effect that the ocean has on your skin? It doesn’t dry it out like a bath – it rejuvenates the skin cells. Salt therapy is like the ocean, times a trillion to the power of infinity (do not challenge our maths skills, please).
Firstly, what is salt therapy? All you have to do it sit in a comfy massage chair in a relaxing room, while pharmaceutical dry salt is pumped through the air. That’s it. Sit and breathe, maybe even nap. For clients with severe skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis, a private room can be booked so they can strip off and expose as much skin to the dry salt as possible.
How does it help? The salt has a wealth of anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antihistamine properties, and clears out everything from the lungs to the sinuses to the bacteria on the skin. The salt helps to reduce swelling and alleviate red, flakey, irritated skin, while also balancing the Ph levels of the skin and stimulating healthy cell rejuvenation and skin elasticity.
Just ask the satisfied clients. “Having suffered with Eczema for over 30 years, my skin is always dry and irritated,” says Rachel from Hampton in Victoria. “After having salt sessions twice a week, my skin is now the best it has ever been. I recommend salt therapy to everyone I speak to. Amazing results.”
