There are many facilities across the United States that have beautiful salt rooms set up and claim that they offer multiple health benefits. However, there is no salt therapy without the use of a halogenerator. The heart of any salt therapy session is the halogenerator.
A halogenerator is designed to crush, grind and disperse pharmaceutical grade salt into the air, which is then inhaled to help respiratory issues, or absorbed by the skin to treat conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
If you are looking into starting a salt therapy regimen and go to a facility that doesn’t use a halogenerator, they are not offering salt therapy. Himalayan salt, sea salt, or any other type of salt that is used on the floor or walls for decor purposes is not salt therapy.
Salt therapy is great for the respiratory system. The dry salt makes its way into the nasal passages, lungs, and sinuses and begins to attach itself to mucus to break it down. It also helps to rid the body of viruses and bacteria that are lurking. Salt therapy assists in reducing the symptoms of allergies, cold, flu, bronchitis, asthma, COPD, and cystic fibrosis, along with other respiratory ailments. Those who are looking to enhance recovery after an athletic performance also benefit from salt therapy sessions. It is an ideal way to ensure that your body is in optimum respiratory health.
When it comes to the skin, salt therapy has been proven to enhance the appearance, as well as mitigate the symptoms of eczema, acne, and psoriasis. Pollutants and bacteria are no match for the dry salt that lands on the skin!
Regardless of how you choose to take part in salt therapy, or where you decide to go for it, it is imperative that you go to a facility that utilizes a halogenerator. If there is no halogenerator, there is no halotherapy.
