Salt Therapy or Halotherapy
What is Salt Therapy?
Salt therapy, also called halotherapy, is natural therapy that involves breathing salty air in a salt therapy room designed to replicate natural salt caves found all over the world. This alternative treatment is beneficial for respiratory health, as well as skin health, and can help relieve conditions like:
- Cold & Flu
- Cystic Fibrosis
- Pulmonary Fibrosis
It is highly recommended that salt therapy be done alongside prescribed medications, if any. This is not by any means a replacement therapy so clients won’t need to stop medications while the therapy is ongoing. When symptoms of the condition are relieved, medicine can be more effective with this treatment.
How Does Salt Therapy Work?
Sessions are usually 45-minutes long, but will still depend on what the consultant will recommend. But during the therapy session, client will sit in a room outfitted with a microclimate similar to an underground salt mine filled with tiny salt particles in the air coming from the halogenerator device that grinds up the salt and disperses it as an aerosol. These salt particles, when inhaled, will help relieve different respiratory conditions. The salt particles will also land on the exposed skin, which will then help with various skin conditions.
Salt therapy works because salt is a known natural anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antihistamine and antiviral substance. Once inhaled, salt particles will coat the airways before drawing out fluid from the damaged airways. And when this fluid is mixed with salt, it will break up any congestion or relieve allergic reactions.
What Can You Expect From It
Most clients claim that with just one salt therapy session, they have already experienced easier breathing. Symptoms such as shortness of breath, sneezing and coughing can also be relieved after a single session. Coughing is a natural effect during and after the treatment because salt works gradually by dislodging mucus and other particles from the airways. Most people experience better sleep after undergoing treatment. Irritation and inflammation of the skin is also reduced after a session.
Salt therapy is a very relaxing, peaceful and rejuvenating experience. The salt room environment is highly-charged with negative ions, which are beneficial to the health and overall well-being and help eliminate free radicals and toxic exposure.
Is Salt Therapy Safe?
Salt therapy is 100% safe, natural and drug-free. It is also perfect for any individual, regardless of their age. Younger children can also enjoy this treatment as some rooms can be outfitted with bean bags, toys and a TV set for their relaxation. Adults, on the other hand, can relax through soothing music.
