Salts of the earth are the salt therapy specialists

Is there any medical research on salt therapy?

Yes there is. Click the links to read the full research and medical journals:

Will I experience results right away?

While some clients report immediate improvement, most require a few sessions to experience relief.

What is the difference between salt therapy and sea air?

The natural anti inflammatory effect of salt, is it’s ability to draw fluid. When you breathe in sea air, it is already moist and has less of an anti inflammatory effect. When you breathe in dry salt aerosol in a salt room, the minute particles line your airways and draw out the fluid from the inflamed airway. This fluid, now mixed with the salt goes to work on cleaning the walls of the airways, resulting in the sufferer coughing up the congestion.

What are your infection control practices?

The halogenerator’s are programmed to automatically ventilate the room for 15 minutes after every session. The rooms are also dusted and wiped down with antibacterial wipes. Clients with contagious conditions will never be placed in the communal Adults’ or Kid’s room.

Any clients who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis or have compromised immune systems will be booked into our Private Room to prevent any cross contamination.

Can babies and kids attend salt therapy?

At Salts of the Earth we welcome people of all ages. All of our centres have a children’s salt room stocked with bean bags, toys, games, TV and a lot more. It’s fair to say that, in there, a lot of them receive the benefits of salt therapy without even realizing it!

Mothers can hold and comfort their babies in the specially designed Children’s Room and there are cosy places for babies to nest while benefiting from salt therapy.

Is it safe for pregnant women?

Yes. Salt therapy is 100% natural, safe and drug-free, providing effective and safe relief for pregnant women.

How safe is salt therapy?

Salt therapy is 100% natural, safe and drug-free. Salt therapy is used as a complementary therapy in conjunction with prescribed medication and can help increase the effectiveness of prescribed medications.

How often should I attend?

Numbers of sessions vary from person to person due to different levels of congestion and inflammation. To get the best results from salt therapy, we recommended you attend on a regular basis until congestion has been cleared and your condition is manageable. One of our Salt Therapists will recommend the best Management Plan for your conditions during your initial Complimentary Management Plan Consultation

Seeing benefits from salt therapy requires consistency, after all one trip to the gym doesn’t guarantee a six pack!

What should I wear during my salt therapy session?

It is recommended you wear comfortable clothing. We will provide you with a hair net and booties. Please keep long hair tied back.

As there are fine salt particles in the air we recommend putting phones and tablets in a clear plastic sleeve or bag to keep them free from salt that could damage your items.

If you have a skin condition on your arms or lower legs we recommend you wear clothing that exposes the affected area.

How long does a session go for and what happens during a session?

Sessions go for 45 minutes. Please arrive 5 minutes before each session starts to allow time to put on your booties and hairnet and to make yourself comfortable in our salt rooms.

During a session a halogenerator grinds up pharmaceutical grade salt into minute particles that become airborne when dispersed into one of our three salt rooms. The dry salt aerosol particles are then inhaled to help relieve inflammation and loosen congestion to allow easier and improved breathing as well as reducing the irritation caused by skin conditions all while relaxing on a massage reclining chair or playing in the kid’s room.
