Here are some natural remedies that are trending today, other than salt therapy, which is what we at the Salt Suite recommend to those that suffer allergy, asthma, skin conditions, or other respiratory problems.

Our motto is “breathe easy” because we know just how difficult life can be for busy people with a litany of daily tasks to deal with. The National Institute of Health say that 38 percent of Americans embrace natural therapies to help them with a variety of problems. Some of these natural remedies trending are the following.

Massage

Regular massage isn’t anything new, but some forms of alternative massage are making headlines. One in particular called “trigger point therapy” aims to alleviate pain in specific spots with a type of “release and pressure” massage. It’s been very helpful to people that suffer chronic neck or back pain.

Acupuncture

If you don’t like needles you may be a little hesitant to try this form of alternative therapy. Although the needles they use in acupuncture are very tiny, so that you hardly feel them at all. Acupuncture is said to help the body’s lymphatic system in a number of real ways. It improves sleep, aids with digestion, and can even promote a sense of peace and wellbeing. The stress relief part of acupuncture is worth looking into, if you feel like you’re having a hard time dealing with what life may throw your way.

Cupping

This trend that many celebrities have tried is where a practitioner places warm glasses or “cups” that are heated on a person’s back. It’s meant to draw out toxins in the skin, increase circulation, and open pores. Actress Gwyneth Paltrow of the wellness website, Goop, has used this form of alternative therapy for years. You can read all about it on her website, here.

Natural Supplements

Supplements either in the form of vitamins or powders added to smoothies and taken daily can also be a great form of alternative therapy. Natural ones that don’t contain additives can boost your wellness in a variety of ways. Some forms of natural supplements are geared towards weight loss, anti-fatigue, and even stress relief. Find ones that will work for you body and consult with your doctor before you begin an supplement routines.

Halotherapy

Of course, our favorite form of alternative natural therapy is halotherapy. This is basically salt treatments that are given in a calm environment rich with naturally salty air. At the Salt Suite, our salt rooms are meant to allow you to spend 45 minutes in a beneficial salt rich environment. It can help you manage the symptoms of a variety of conditions such as allergies, asthma, and even serious respiratory issues like COPD. Talk to one of our specialist today about the benefits that a regular salt therapy routine can do for your lifestyle.

“During a typical adult session customers put their feet up in a comfortable leather chair rest or read and breathe in a dry salt aerosol. The micro particles are blown in the air by halo generators. In our separate children’s room kids play in a big sand box except with salt on the walls and floor and play while breathing in the dry salt air.”
