Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, is a form of complementary medicine that uses natural, holistic, and drug-free remedy that involves breathing pharmaceutical-grade dry salt in a comfortable, controlled environment. The therapy was originally developed after recognition of speleotherapy, where patients were made to sit in natural salt caves for respiratory ailments and skin issues. With the intent to provide easy reach to patients, salt rooms are created to provide salt therapy by creating an atmosphere similar to a salt cave.
Salt therapy has been proven to improve lung function and pulmonary ventilation, reduce infections, lower inflammation of the airways, and kill bacteria and germs. This results in easier breathing. The therapy also encourages natural exfoliation and regeneration of the skin
How Salt Therapy Works
Dry salt is super-absorbent, has natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, and reduces the immune system’s oversensitivity. Once inhaled, the salt widens the airways and loosens mucus, making it easier to expel, along with pathogens, debris, and airborne pollutants.
It improves lung function and pulmonary ventilation, reduces infections, lowers the inflammation of the airways, and kills bacteria and germs, which results in easier breathing. It also prevents nasal obstruction, clears the sinuses, and alleviates the inflammation of the mucus membranes.
When it comes to the skin, dry salt particles can help balance pH levels, and promote the ‘good’ bacteria. Salt therapy improves the skin’s protective and reparative properties, reduces inflammation, increases rigidity, stimulates microcirculation, and encourages natural exfoliation and regeneration. Your skin will look and feel better than ever!
