Optimal Wellbeing

Optimising breath

Optimising how we feel, every moment of every day, can make a great change to our happiness, healthiness and life. Happiness, prosperity, well-being and lifestyle are all enhanced when we feel better within ourselves.

 

As an example we can think about the primary goal of every athlete. That goal is to achieve their maximum potential.


And one of the most important determinants of whether this is possible is an optimum breathing pattern and lung capacity.

Effects of Poor Breathing

Poor breathing patterns and habits have a negative impact o our lives.

Poor breathing will:

  • Reduce stamina and performance
  • Increase the production of lactic acid and subsequently leave the athlete with -residual muscle soreness
  • Increase dehydration
  • Increase the occurrence of cramps
  • Greatly increase recovery time
  • Limit gaseous exchange in the lungs
  • Elevate the heart rate
  • Increase anxiety
  • Decrease concentration
  • Deplete energy levels
  • Contribute to poor sleep patterns.

How Salt Therapy can help optimise wellbeing

Salt Therapy will increases lung function and breathing capacity in a completely natural and drug-free way.

Salt therapy successfully optimization of our well being through better breathing by:

  • Improving lung function and increasing lung capacity and stamina
  • Clearing mucus from the airways thus removing airflow obstruction
  • Killing germs and bacteria that cause inflammation and production of mucus
  • Increaseing blood flow, and improving circulation, allowing quick recovery time after any training or injury.
  • Preventing and treating any underlying respiratory weaknesses
  • Strengthening the immune system and reducing the need for use of medications.

Our Salt rooms also contain an abundance of Negative Ions. The healing properties of Negative Ions have been researched and documented since the early 1900’s - here are some of the benefits they hold:

  • Recovery from physical exhaustion or fatigue – by increasing oxygen levels in the blood and facilitating more efficient oxygen utilization and by normalising serotonin production in the brain, negative ions help accelerate recovery from chronic fatigue and speed up physical recovery after a workout/training or after injury.
  • 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.
  • Enhancing overall health and well-being – negative ions can activate, rejuvenate and revitalize all of the body’s systems and cells, promoting a stronger overall health and a sense of well-being.

Athletes are a great example as they find  once they have optimised their breathing, they can achieve better performance, and use less breath. This means they have more air in reserve to achieve an outstanding performance.
