Is Salt Therapy just a Trend?

Salt therapy is winning the attention of people all across the world because of the healing properties of salt. Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, is a method used to recreate the atmosphere in a salt cave only with a much higher concentration of microscopic salt in the air. Studies have been done on the incredible sinus and respiratory relief that salt mine workers have experienced.

Salt therapy is often administered in a salt room with walls covered with thick layers of salt. Generators are used to disperse salt in the air in the form of a dry aerosol. The aerosol, when inhaled, offers several health benefits including relief from asthma, allergies, breathing problems, sinusitis, ear infections, COPD, and psoriasis.

How does this work? At The Salt Suite® a machine called the halogenator grinds salt into tiny particles and disperses it into the air. We measure the size and concentration of the salt regularly. The particles can be as small as 1 micron. This makes it easier to reach deep into the deep parts of the respiratory tract, dissolving bacteria and other pollutants and at the same time eliminating mucous plugs from the airway, relieving breathing difficulties. Salt therapy is also employed for its anti-inflammatory properties, resolving the airway inflammation which is the basis of some lung diseases.

Salt therapy is now a very common therapeutic offering at spas, resorts, and clubs across Central Europe, Asia, and many parts of the United States. Many people walk into these The Salt Suite® facilities time and again for salt treatment to find relief from their illnesses.

It’s hard to imagine salt therapy being a trend with all the success it has had helping people Breathe Easy™ all across the world. Keep in mind that it is not a cure though for your condition, but it can provide major relief from the worst sinus and respiratory conditions. Please do not discontinue any medications without first consulting with your doctor. We look forward to seeing you at the nearest The Salt Suite® location!

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