Salt therapy, or halotherapy, is a natural form of treatment that involves breathing in a dry salt aerosol. It is used to treat respiratory conditions like bronchitis, and allergies. It can also help to relieve a cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, depression, and anxiety. Skin conditions like eczema, acne, and psoriasis can also be cured with this type of treatment.
One dry method of salt therapy takes place in a salt cabin. The cabin looks a bit like a sauna, but it is free of humidity and feels a bit chilly. Clients typically stay in the cabin for thirty to forty-five minutes depending on their specific needs and the severity of the issue they are treating.
A halogenerator grinds up the salt particles into very fine pieces and then releases them into the cabin. The client inhales the particles and allergens and toxins are removed from the respiratory system. The lungs clear up, and oxygen levels rise. Mucus is broken up, swelling subsides, and the cleat airways make for a healthier, happier you!
Similarly, the salt particles also help the skin. They absorb bacterias and other impurities that cause skin conditions while moisturizing it. While it takes a few sessions to see complete results, one will feel better after just one! When you begin to see the difference, confidence and self-esteem hit level highs!
Because salt produces negative ions, relaxing in a salt cabin also enhances your sense of well-being. The body begins to release more serotonin, which is the chemical that creates the feeling of happiness. When this happens, it feels as if the stress just lifts away from your body, leaving you ready to bounce back and get right to the rest of your day.
The cabins are very versatile and can be used in a variety of locations due to their different sizes and their ability to move if needed. It is no problem if you want to rearrange the items in the room and place the cabin in another spot!
Salt therapy is a safe form of treatment, and no negative side effects have been reported by those that take part in the therapy sessions. It is complementary to any medications that have been prescribed by a medical professional, but if you are using it to help with effects of a medical condition it is best to speak to your doctor before beginning a salt therapy regimens. Don’t stop any medications before consulting your physician.
