Dry Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy, benefits adults and children alike as well as athletes and animals. It is natural and safe with no harmful side effects. Halotherapy is beneficial for overall wellness by removing toxicities from the respiratory system, improving the function and appearance of the skin and boosting the immune system. For general respiratory hygiene, using salt therapy once a week will enhance lung capacity, boost your immune system, reduce stress and improve sleep.
Lung & Respiratory Therapy
We are exposed to pollutants, airborne diseases, bacteria, allergens and other irritating factors on a daily basis. Halotherapy cleanses and detoxes the lungs as well as invigorates the entire body with increased lung capacity and oxygen intake. Research has found that inhaled dry salt particles have bactericide, mucokinetic, hydrophilic and anti-inflammatory properties, which may help reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen airway passages. Dry salt particles are known to accelerate the transportation of mucus and eliminate foreign allergens. Dry salt acts like a sponge attracting foreign substances along its path through the respiratory tract. This can be imagined to behave like a toothbrush that cleans the respiratory system removing buildup of foreign elements that cause various respiratory ailments and conditions.
You may find relief from a variety of respiratory conditions including:
- Common cold
- Cystic fibrosis
- Ear infections
- Smokers cough
Skin & Hair Therapy
Our skin is a very complex and intelligent organ with many important functions. It is the largest organ and has a major role to protect and defend the body against bacteria, viruses and other microbes. It excretes waste, regulates temperature, and prevents dehydration by controlling the level of perspiration. Research has confirmed that the micro-particles of salt have a beneficial influence to our skin and hair providing healing and cosmetic effects. This increases activity of skin cell ion channels and activates electrophysiological activity that determines the skin’s protective properties. The salt provides pH normalization and induces reparative and regenerative processes in derma, increases skin rigidity, stimulates growth and improves hair health.
Regular and consistent dry salt therapy may help people with the following skin conditions:
- Dry, flaky skin
- Swelling & inflammation
Psychological and emotional benefits include reduced stress, relaxation and rejuvenation. Research shows salt cave therapy normalizes certain levels in the brain, improving a person’s positive outlook and mood. Negative ions also help you sleep by regulating your serotonin secretion, reduce headaches and sickness and increases the flow of oxygen to the brain resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness, and more mental energy.
