ABOUT SALT THERAPY
Salt therapy has been around since the beginning of time and has been used throughout history in all sorts of ways—as a common cooking ingredient, on snowy and Icy roads, as a preservative, and even as currency in centuries past. Salt is one of the essential ingredients that constitute life. Salt has also been utilized in various therapeutic, healing and medicinal ways including saline solutions, nebulizers, skin scrubs, salt baths, Nettie pots, etc.…mostly known as “wet” salt therapy. In our modern society, thanks to technological innovations,
another aspect of salt therapy has emerged where the main health benefit comes from the salt’s quality to absorb moisture. It is called Dry Salt Therapy and is also known as Halotherapy. Today, Halotherapy is being provided throughout Europe,
Australia, United Kingdom, Canada, the United States and other areas as a natural alternative and complimentary way of improving general wellness, respiratory issues, skin conditions, detoxification, athletic performance and more.
HOW DOES SALT THERAPY WORK?
Dry pure grade sodium chloride 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 room during a typical session. As you relax in the salt room the micro-particles are inhaled as well as
land on the skin. The particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli as well as into the deeper layers of the skin. Furthermore, the anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of the dry sodium chloride aerosol help
in treating ear infections and certain skin conditions such as psoriasis, dermatitis, and eczema. Although salt therapy is new to the U.S., it is frequently used in many countries of Eastern Europe. Today, modern technology allows us to bring the benefits of a salt mine to you. Salt therapy is a non-invasive, drug-free, chemical-free, all-natural solution.
