About Salt Therapy

Salt therapy is a drug-free and completely natural therapy for treating respiratory and skin conditions. Salt therapy has no side effects and is suitable for all ages. 

Salt therapy originated 200 years ago in the undergound salt mines in Eastern Europe. Our Salt Rooms have been engineered to simulate the micro-climate found in natural salt caves. 

During each 45 minute session a specialized medical device grinds pharmaceutical grade salt into microscopic particles and disperses them into the room. These tiny particles are inhaled into the deepest part of the lungs. 

Salt Therapy has been shown to eliminate inhaled airborne allergens from the airways with studies showing an estimated efficacy of between 75 – 98%. 

Based on clinical studies, inhaling dry salt aerosol reduces inflammation of the whole respiratory tract. 

When salt particles are inhaled and deposited in the bronchial tree system and on the mucus, the mucus starts to break down and becomes much easier to remove through coughing. This will improve your immune system and also provide a general sense of well being.

Dry salt aerosol also has anti-bacterial properties and assists in cleansing the microbial flora of the respiratory tract, reducing inflammation of the airways and enabling the restoration of normal mucociliary clearance of the bronchi. 

This process increases the body’s natural resistance to respiratory tract infections. 

Salt therapy is also proven beneficial in the treatment of a number of skin conditions including eczema, psoriais and dermatitis. 

The salt reduces inflammation on the skin and improves circulation on the skin surface, promoting new collagen production and repair.

How does Salt Therapy work?

Salt therapy is a 100% natural treatment that helps relieve the symptoms of many respiratory and skin conditions in a non-invasive way. 

Sitting in our Salt Room exposes you to tiny salt particles that cleanse and detoxify the respiratory system.

Salt has a natural ability to absorb, and holds natural anti-bacterial, anti – inflammatory and anti-histamine properties. These help to:

  • Release the toxins and mucus from the lungs, thus reducing the need for it to be released through the skin.
  • Kill germs and bacteria that cause inflammation
  • Increases blood flow, and improve circulation, thus encouraging toxins to be expelled before they aggravate the skin
  • Strengthening the immune system and so reducing the need for medications and lowering  stress levels.

Our Salt Rooms also contain an abundance of Negative Ions. The healing properties of Negative Ions have been researched and documented for many years.
Some of the benefits they hold include:

  • Killing viruses, bacteria and allergens – Negative ions are proven to clear the air of dust, pollen, pet dander, mould spores and other potential allergens and significantly decrease airborne viruses and bacteria.
  • Depression, Anxiety and Stress –negative ions can calm and relax the nerves by promoting abundant oxygen levels in the blood, normalizing breathing rate, decreasing blood pressure and relieving tension and stress, resulting in relaxation, calmness and better sleep.
  • Strengthening the immune system – high levels of negative ions improve the function of the cilia in your respiratory tract that protect your lungs from irritation and inflammation, thus leading to less instances of respiratory illnesses like colds and flu, hay-fever and asthma.

Hi Kat,     

Thank you so much for advising on the sessions to help clear up my clingy flu, they made an amazing difference. I was sceptical at the start but very happy to be proven wrong.

During the first session I began coughing a little about 15 minutes into the session and definitely felt that the therapy was getting to the heart of the breathing challenges and through the sinuses - much to my surprise.  

After the session my breathing was definitively better and I felt quite good.  

During the second session it was a similar experience albeit the coughing was materially less. By the time I got to the fourth session there was no coughing or symptoms there and I felt that the flu was beaten.   

It is hard to say whether the flu was already at an end or not, but given it had been there for five weeks and then cleared with one week of salt room therapy, you would have to conclude that it definitely aided the process.  The advice to do multiple sessions close to each other was ideal as well. The one session every two days definitely worked for me. 

To top things off I found the sessions quite relaxing and I seemed to sleep better the nights I had the sessions as well.      

Thanks again for all the help and the advice through the process. I would happily recommend your facility and approach to anyone with similar challenges.   

Regards     

Derek F.
