Will Salt Therapy Increase my Blood Pressure?

This is an excellent question to have if you are thinking about participating in some Halotherapy. As a form of “salt therapy” for someone who suffers from common respiratory issues, you might also have high blood pressure problems. Most of those who have blood pressure issues inherit the condition genetically. High blood pressure conditions are sometimes caused from ingesting too much salt on a regular basis or having a high stress career. Your physician might recommend medication, relaxation techniques, and a low salt diet to bring it down into a normal range.

Breathing Versus Eating Salt: A Big Difference

Some might wonder if breathing in salt during a Halotherapy session might cause their blood pressure to rise in an unnatural way. It’s a good questions and one that has a very simple answer. No, The Salt Suite® salt rooms will not cause your blood pressure to rise. Even with the salt particles in our rooms having a concentration 10-15 times higher than normal sea air, you don’t have to worry about it affecting your blood pressure.

In fact the amount of salt you are breathing in is drastically different than eating salt in general. Inhaling it is only about the amount of salt you would get from eating one potato chip. Just one little chip, that’s all. It’s not something you have to be concerned about with your blood pressure.

The Benefits Are Enormous

Plus the benefits you are going to get from breaking in the sterile salt air are numerous. Not only will you be feeling and breathing better with clearer air passageways, but your sinuses will be cleaned out, and it can even help chronic skin conditions and asthma.

Relaxing in one of our therapy rooms is the perfect way to de-stress after a long hard day of work. The dry salt air will do its work, while you take it easy. Read a book, listen to some soft music, or just meditate on the fact that you are doing something wonderful for your overall health and wellness.
