Discover the benefits of salt therapy.
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 symptom relief following regular salt therapy.
When a client sits in one of our three salt rooms (salt caves), 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 the client’s 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, flakey, 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.
It is important to understand that salt therapy is not an alternative therapy, but a complementary one. It is intended to be used alongside conventional medical treatment. Results may vary between clients and we recommend you discuss the use of salt therapy with your GP.
