How can Salt Therapy help me?
Respiratory Benefits of Salt
People are exposed to pollutants, airborne diseases, bacteria, allergens and other irritating factors on a daily basis.
In Dry Salt Therapy, the salt particles naturally start absorbing allergens, toxins and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory system. The micro-sized crystal structure of pure NaCl particles breaks loose and clears out all of the ‘bad stuff’. This is the basis for how dry salt therapy can impact people suffering from respiratory conditions like:
COPD and others.
Research has found that inhaled dry salt has properties which may help to reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen the airway passages. A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy and an improved immune system. Healthy lungs and a clean respiratory system are essential for vitality, energy and longevity. Regular Halotherapy practice is an excellent way to aide breathing and improve your quality of life.
Salt Therapy for Skin
As we age, our skin is the first organ to show the impact of time and life. The skin is the largest organ and, like the respiratory system, it has a major role to protect and defend the body against bacteria, viruses and other microbes. Salt Therapy sessions also allow the dry salt to absorb impurities and provide anti-bacterial properties that benefit the skin such as:
It also regulates the skin's micro-circulation. The smaller particles can reach beneath the skin’s surface and absorb moisture towards the skin. The larger salt particles land on the skin and absorb any bacterial and foreign substances. The dry salt accelerates cell provides pH normalization, cell rejuvenation and improves skin rigidity.
Salt For Sleep
If you or your significant other has a snoring issue or sleep apnea, it’s likely that neither of you get restful sleep. Snoring is the horse or harsh sound caused by the vibration of respiratory structures that are partially obstructed while you are sleeping. Snoring is often a warning sign or first alarm of the more serious condition sleep apnea, where breathing repeatedly stops and starts due to significant obstruction during sleep as the throat muscles relax.
Basically, snoring and sleep apnea symptoms can be reduced with Salt Therapy because the salt exposure relieves the obstructed air passages by reducing inflammation. The air passages are opened and widened and the spasm of inflamed irritated tissue is calmed, so restful breathing can be achieved. The reduction in noise will help you and your partner sleep more peacefully.
Salt Therapy and Stress
The cool and comfortable environment of a salt room immediately relaxes you. This isolated, stress-free chamber allows the parasympathetic nervous system (sometimes called the ‘rest and digest’ system) to engage, slowing the heart rate and lowering blood pressure. The antibacterial properties and anti inflammatory properties that salt brings helps to reduce the body’s toxic load, which gives relief and provides a level of physical and emotional balance.
