Salts For Health
What is Salt Therapy?
Salt Therapy (also called Halotherapy) is a natural and safe therapy that is risk-free and without side-effects which can assist with relief from a wide range of chronic and acute health conditions and boosts general health and mental wellbeing. It relieves respiratory problems such as sinusitis, hayfever, asthma and bronchitis as well as skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and allergies.
Salt Therapy was used as far back as the ancient Greeks. Today, Salt Therapy is designed to duplicate the microclimate of the salt caves in Europe. Salt therapy rooms disperse negatively ionized finely ground pharmaceutical-grade salt (sodium chloride) through a halogenerator into the salt room as you sit, relax and breathe for 45 minutes. Our Group Room at Salts For Health also has a floor covered in pink himalayan salt, as well as on the walls, providing further negative ions to help you relax.
How Does Salt Therapy Benefit?
The dry aerosol salt particles inhaled during a salt therapy session strengthens the immune system and detoxifies and cleanses the body due to its anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties, which loosens up and clears out mucus/phlegm in the airways and lungs, toxins throughout the body, as well as relieving various imflammation in the body and skin.
Better Health, Less Drugs
Salt Therapy can also help reduce dependence on pharmaceutical medicine for a better quality of life. In some cases, you may be able to reduce prescribed medication (this requires your doctor's assessment). This is a great plus because many medications have unpleasant side-effects. Please do not change or stop your medication without consultation from your medical practitioner.
