DRY SALT THERAPY

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A SALT ROOM SESSION?
Dry Salt Therapy acts to cleanse the respiratory system and the skin, which helps to relieve congestion, inflammation, and skin conditions. Sessions are non-invasive.
Once you enter the SALT Room, you can sit and relax. The lights will dim, and you can choose to listen to relaxing music, read a book or magazine, meditate, or simply rest. The temperature and humidity in the rooms are controlled to provide an optimal experience. You will find pure relaxation and tranquility away from your everyday stress, leaving you rejuvenated and fully energized. (Cell phones, electronics, and jewelry are usually not permitted since salt can be corrosive.)
The salt, 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride, is heated and then ground and crushed into very tiny microparticles. These dry aerosol microparticles of salt are then dispersed into the SALT Room where they are inhaled and penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. The non-inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin and are absorbed.
When your session is over, you may notice a faint trace of salt on your lips, and the slight taste of salt on your tongue. Any salt that collects on your clothing can be easily brushed off. A runny nose or increase in coughing means your body clearing out mucus and toxins.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dry salt acts like a sponge attracting foreign substances along its path through the respiratory tract. The dry salt can be imagined behaving like a toothbrush that cleans the respiratory system removing the build-up of foreign elements that cause various respiratory ailments and conditions.
Inhaled dry salt particles may help to reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen the airway passages. A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy, and an improved immune system.
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.
Halotherapy is a dry salt therapy that utilizes a halogenerator to grind and crush salt into micronized particles that are dispersed into the air with a dry salt aerosol that works to aid respiratory concerns and skin conditions.
Depending on the size of the salt room or salt cave, and the number of people, sessions can last anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes.
WHAT IS DRY SALT THERAPY?
HOW LONG IS A TYPICAL
SALT ROOM SESSION?
HOW SHOULD I DRESS IN
A SALT ROOM?
Loose, comfortable, light-colored clothing that you can relax in works best. If you are using Dry Salt Therapy for a skin condition, you’ll want to have that area exposed.
Based on your condition and symptoms, this can vary. For best results, the Salt Therapy Association recommends a series of treatments. Some individuals prefer to use Dry Salt Therapy as a continuous preventative measure.
HOW MANY SESSIONS DO I NEED? HOW OFTEN?
There are no potentially harmful side effects of Dry Salt Therapy. The treatment is completely natural. A slight cough or a runny nose is possible, but this is simply the salt working to remove mucus and toxins from the lungs and airways.
