The process of using salt as a healing agent has been around for thousands of years, often associated with the ancient Greeks. Today we can still reap the benefits from sodium chloride, the two atoms that make up the salt molecule. Salt is an integral part of our life, regulating water intake, circulation, nervous and respiratory system, muscle contractions, and more within the body. In addition, salt also has external healing benefits, offering a noticeable improvement to skin afflictions such as eczema, rashes, psoriasis, dry skin due to its ability to replenish and trap moisture in the skin. It is also thought to be a great stress reliever and mood booster. Because of all of these wonderful benefits, we offer salt therapy sessions at Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa in our Salt Cave, designed specifically for healing and relaxation. If you would like to learn more about these treatments or schedule an appointment, you can call our Fleming Island, FL medical spa today.
