Salt rooms are therapeutic caverns furnished with salt décor and walls. This room is where dry salt therapy takes place. Dry salt therapy detoxifies your respiratory system, which helps to relieve congestion and inflammation, as well as combat skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
How Safe are Salt Rooms?
Salt rooms are completely natural and safe for adults, children, and even animals such as horses and dogs. It is often combined with other medical treatments and prescriptions but also works as a sole treatment for many conditions.
The salt selection process for dry salt therapy is also very rigorous. All of the salt used in salt rooms is 99.99% pure grade sodium chloride. Plus, the temperature and technology are both controlled to precision.
Is Dry Salt Therapy Safe For Children?
Salt rooms are completely safe for you and your family. It is a natural, drug-free, non-invasive treatment with no harmful side effects. We do recommend you consult your doctor before trying dry salt therapy.
It’s also suitable for children of any age, even as young as one month old. Children actually respond better and more quickly than adults to dry salt therapy.
What Happens During A Dry Salt Therapy Session?
During a salt therapy session, you simply relax in an ambient salt room, where the temperature and humidity are controlled to provide the best experience for you. You can meditate or read, it’s up to you. All you have to do is breathe and relax. The halogenerator will do the rest.
Pure-grade sodium chloride is heated and then ground and crushed into very tiny microparticles. It is sent back out into the salt room, where it’s inhaled into the lungs, bronchi, and is absorbed by the skin. When an individual completes their session, they often feel refreshed and energized.
Are There Any Side Effects Of Dry Salt Therapy?
As stated, there are no nasty side effects that come with dry salt therapy. When your session is over, you may notice a slight taste of salt on your lips and tongue. But don’t worry, this is totally natural and isn’t harmful at all.
And, a slight cough or a runny nose is possible, as well as some coughing. However, this is simply a sign that salt therapy is working to remove the mucus and toxins from your body.
Isn’t Salt Bad For You?
While there are concerns about sodium levels and salt intake, there is nothing to fear with dry salt therapy. In fact, there are a lot of benefits to this treatment. When inhaled, the amount of micro salt particles entering your respiratory system is extremely low, so it doesn’t change your body’s saline levels.
Even then, the concentration of pharmaceutical-grade salt that you breathe in during salt therapy is very low (less than a teaspoon). Because of salt’s natural anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory properties, and its ability to clear passageways and break down mucous, it has only healing effects when taken into the body this way.
