Everyone longs to sit in a chair with their toes in the sand while breathing in the salty air, however, not everyone has the time to spend the day at the beach. A visit to a salt cave is much quicker, you will achieve the same relaxing result, and the salty air is more effective for your general wellness since it’s dry salt therapy as opposed to wet salt therapy.
Many individuals have not heard of a salt cave before, but they are becoming more common as a place to go for dry salt therapy (halotherapy). A salt cave is a man-made cave made of salt that is able to provide a number of general wellness benefits to those taking part in a salt therapy session, with the help of a halogenerator. A halogenerator crushes grinds and disperses 99.99% pure grade sodium chloride into the air, which is then inhaled to help combat respiratory issues. The salt that is not inhaled lands on the skin and helps alleviate conditions such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
Salt caves help people to breathe better by weakening the symptoms of most respiratory conditions. Inflammation and mucus are also reduced, which clears airways. Those suffering from conditions such as asthma, COPD, sinusitis, bronchitis, and allergies could all benefit from a visit to a salt cave.
With regard to the skin, a visit to a salt cave actually nourishes and moisturizes! The salt is made up of over 84 minerals that can be absorbed by the skin, which makes it easy to see and feel the difference. The appearance of eczema, psoriasis, and acne can be reduced with regular salt therapy cave sessions.
Stress is a part of our everyday lives, but some feel it more than others. For those experiencing a high level of stress, a salt cave therapy session may be just what you need. Because of the relaxing environment, you are able to unwind and let the stresses of the day be cleared from your mind. You will leave the cave feeling refreshed with a whole new perception of your well-being. Along with stress, the effects of seasonal affective disorder and insomnia may be reduced.
Salt therapy caves benefit everyone. From those looking for stress relief to those looking to help lessen respiratory ailments and skin conditions, salt therapy offers many benefits. There have been no negative side effects reported, so there is no reason to not consider a salt therapy session to improve your health, mood, and general overall wellness!
