There are three primary characteristics of pure sodium chloride (salt):
- Salt is super absorbent (especially when it is completely dry)
- Salt is anti-bacterial and anti-microbial
- Salt is anti-inflammatory
We are exposed to pollutants, airborne diseases, bacteria, allergens, and other irritating factors on a daily basis. Halotherapy—a.k.a. salt therapy—is a drug-free, holistic way to cleanse and detox the lungs as well as invigorate the entire body. Halotherapy is even better than spending time in the salty sea air, because dry salt air is more powerful and effective than moist air. Our salt cabin has about 10 to 15 times the concentration of salt found by the sea, so a 25-minute session is equal to a day by the ocean.
Similar to a meditation session, you breathe deeply while listening to calming music and let the salt rejuvenate you inside and out.
The benefits of halotherapy are wide-ranging.
As the dry salt is inhaled into your respiratory system, it acts like a sponge naturally absorbing allergens, toxins, and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Dry salt may help to reduce inflammation and open airway passages. This is how halotherapy can help respiratory conditions like allergies, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, COPD, and others. Scientific studies show that people with asthma and other ailments breath easier, with increased lung capacity and oxygen intake after halotherapy.
Skin conditions such as psoriasis, rashes, eczema, and acne can also be improved with halotherapy. The smaller salt particles reach beneath the skin’s surface, attracting moisture to the skin, while the large salt particles land on the skin and absorb bacteria and other foreign substances. Your skin feels softer and revitalized.
Additional benefits are reduced stress and headaches, an improved mood, increased energy, and better sleep patterns.
Regular halotherapy sessions are recommended to help keep the body healthy during flu or allergy seasons. Halotherapy is a refreshing ritual to add to your wellness routine. Experience natural detoxification and see for yourself!
