Common Cold & Congestion
The common cold is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory system. Symptoms include a cough, sore throat, runny nose, and fever.
By sitting in the Salts of the Earth salt rooms you will be exposed to a dry salt aerosol. The size of the microscopic salt particles enables it to be inhaled deep down into your lungs, lining the walls of your airways and lungs and promoting muco-ciliary clearance.
It does this by gently stimulating the body’s natural action of cilia movement in therespiratory system working as “gentle brush” to clean the airways of mucus, allergens and other foreign substances that often accompany cold and flu.
Salt therapy is designed to relieve congestion of the airways.
Additionally, the sodium chloride aka “salt” changes the consistency of mucus in the lungs and airways so that it is thinner and less sticky – therefore making it easier to expel clearing congestion in the chest.

Private Rooms are also available.
Success Stories from our Clients
My son was the child that caught every cold, illness or flu going around, so when we came across salt therapy I decided to try it as he was missing so many days at kinder and I didn’t want him missing school.
We have been at Salt of the Earth Salt Therapy for 9 weeks now and my son has benefited tremendously, he has had maybe two days sick from school and possibly three runny noses but it’s dramatically changed his well being.
He also has been sleeping better and I also get the benefit of the salt therapy has helped my breathing and overall health.

Salt therapy is a complementary therapy, designed to be used in conjunction with conventional medicine. Like many aspects of a healthy lifestyle, consistency is key and salt therapy should be viewed as an ongoing therapy to be utilised alongside an overall treatment plan. We always recommend clients speak with their GP about the use of salt therapy.
