Salt therapy is geared towards helping a few different ailments. There are actually quite a few on the list of conditions that will benefit. This type of “halotherapy” or salt therapy works for both children and adults. If you haven’t heard of salt therapy, don’t worry it’s nothing new. This type of treatment has been used naturally for centuries in many different cultures.
For example, in 1843 a Polish physician named Felix Boczkowski studied miners working in the Wieliczka salt mines. He noted that these workers had way less respiratory problems than most other miners in the field. There had to be something to the salt that was helping people breathe better! So today that’s predominantly what The Salt Suite® is able to do for people, help them breathe better. Here are a few other conditions that can be greatly improved by partaking in routine salt therapy treatments at our salt rooms. We have a few different locations to suit your needs.
Allergies Need Salt Therapy
Whether you have seasonal allergies, or year round issues with breathing, stuffy nasal passages, congestion in your chest, itchy eyes, or other symptoms that allergies bring, salt treatments are one of the best ways to naturally tackle the issues. It can help clear up your sinuses to help you breathe easier. This is also a natural treatment that children can experience as well in our special rooms just for them. There are toys and books they can play with they’ll enjoy, so that their time with the salt rooms just seems like fun.
Asthma Patients Can Benefit Too
When you have asthma it can be frustrating to try to control the symptoms of the disease at all times. You may have a rescue inhaler or other medications that aren’t quite taking care of your breathing problems. Committing to regular salt therapy can help you have fewer asthma attacks, where you just aren’t taking in enough air. The salty air helps to open up the breathing passageways, for less severe asthma problems.
Skin Conditions Are Another Great Reason
People with chronic skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and even acne issues can benefit from the salt rooms. This anti-bacterial air that’s pumped into the room with our “halogenerator” gently allows the purified air to glide over the surface of the skin, making it feel and look much better after a few treatments. It’s vital to go on a continual basis if you have some of these regular skin issues. You might also find that certain times of the year are worse for flair-ups with your skin, so regular salt therapy might prevent such acute bouts of the problem.
“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.”
