WHAT IS SALT THERAPY? 

Salt Therapy, also called Halotherapy, is a therapeutic and 100% natural, drug-free and non-invasive treatment. Salt therapy is a method of inhaling pure, dry, micronized salt air particles. These particles reach the deepest area of the lungs absorbing bacteria and pollutants and providing an anti-inflammatory and cleansing effect. This process supports and strengthens the body’s immune system by eliminating toxins and allergens that are trapped in the mucus lining of the respiratory system, and also improving the appearance of the skin.

HOW DOES SALT THERAPY WORK?

Dry pharmaceutical grade salt is heated and then it is ground and crushed into very tiny micro-particles in a machine called a Halogenerator. These dry aerosol micro-particles  of salt are then dispersed into the Salt Chamber during a typical session. As the person relaxes in the Chamber the micro-particles are inhaled and come in contact with our skin. The inhaled particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli. Bacteria and pollutants are dissolved as salt enters the lungs and respiratory system by eliminating mucous and opening constricted airways.

SALT THERAPY FOR OUR SKIN?

Yes! Our skin is a very complex and intelligent organ that has many important functions. It 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. It also excretes wastes, regulates temperature and prevents dehydration by controlling the level of perspiration. 

Scientific research has confirmed that the micro-particles of salt have a beneficial influence on our skin and hairs providing healing and cosmetic effects. This increases the activity of skin cell ion channels and activates electrophysiological activity that determines the skin’s protective properties. The salt provides pH normalization and induces reparative and regenerative processes in derma, increases skin rigidity, stimulates growth and improves hair health. The dry salt impacts the skin microcirculation and assists cellular membrane activity used in dermatology and cosmetology and enhances their effectiveness.

HOW SAFE IS SALT THERAPY?

Salt Therapy is completely safe.  It is a 100% drug-free, non-invasive and comfortable treatment with no side effects or potential health hazards. The only people who should avoid being in a salt chamber are those with severe chronic respiratory issues and those with open wounds and sores. It is advisable that people going into a Salt Chamber remove all personal jewelry, glasses and other belongings since salt can be corrosive to exposed metal.
