Salt Therapy and Dermatitis

Skin issues can be a nightmare to deal with. Dermatitis or “eczema” as its more commonly called is a disorder that is characterized by skin inflammation. Many times this term refers to a group of diseases that also correlate to other conditions, such as allergies, hay fever, and asthma problems. In the United States alone according to the National Eczema Association, around three percent of the population has this kind of condition affecting their skin. Most cases start in children who are under five-years-old.

The Symptoms Of Dermatitis

Some of the symptoms of dermatitis include, itchy skin that is scaly in appearance. It may also have a rash-like appearance that is red, brown, or dry. Either way, those who deal with this condition are usually very self-concious about it. So it affects more than just a person’s physical appearance, but their mental state as well. Finding the right treatments to make the symptoms less irritating and life interfering is vital for better health.

What Salt Therapy Can Do For You

If you or someone you love, including a child, has dermatitis it can be quite frustrating to find a solution. Salt therapy or halotherapy is one option to try. If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s breathing in salt air in a antibacterial therapy room. The salt is pumped into the rooms that are sanitary with an “halogenerator.” It can significantly reduce the inflammation that causes the symptoms of dermatitis.

Just Breathe The Salty Air In For Relief

All you have to do is breathe in the salt air, and let the particles work their magic. It’s best if you have chronic conditions to submit to a regimen that’s at least a few times per week. Talk with the staff of the Salt Suite to find out exactly what will be the best course of action for your own body. Everyone is different, but the fact is that salt therapy will treat your skin conditions in a non-invasive, homeopathic way.

Children especially love to play in the salt rooms. They don’t even know it’s treatment based. To them it’s just a cool place to hang out and play. The Salt Suite has specially designed rooms just for the kids with toys and books to play with. Your child will actually enjoy being in the treatment environment. The only after effect is a possibly slightly salty taste on the lips. In just a few sessions, you’ll notice an improvement in eczema symptoms.

“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.”
