"I had allergies and I sat in the Salt Chamber and I was not only able to breathe easier, but it was so relaxing and refreshing. I know that I will be back!"
What is it?
Dry Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy is a form of respiratory therapy that utilizes a machine called a Halogenerator to grind and crush 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride (salt) into micronized particles that are then dispersed into a salt room, salt cave, or salt chamber. This is done via a dry salt aerosol, and works to aid respiratory concerns and skin conditions. If there is no Halogenerator, there is no Halotherapy!
There are 3 fundamentals to dry salt therapy:
1. Super Absorbent - Dry salt acts like a sponge attracting foreign substances along it's path through the respiratory tract. The dry salt behaves like a toothbrush that cleans the respiratory system, removing the build-up of foreign elements that cause various respiratory ailments and conditions.
2. Anti-Inflamatory- Inhaled dry salt particles may help to reduced inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen airway passages. A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy, and an improved immune system.
3. Anti-Bacterial- The dry salt particles act as an anti-bacterial agent, dissolving bacteria and pollutants lodged in the respiratory tract. These are then either coughed up or naturally expelled by the body.
How can Halotherapy benefit you?
