We all live stressful lives. Also, no matter where you live, we are exposing ourselves to air pollution and the toxins which exist around us. Different seasons bring ailments from the common cold to Hay Fever. Most of us can’t claim to be eating and exercising right every day. So, what’s the answer? It could be Salt Therapy. A relaxing session in a salt room has so many benefits. From encouraging better sleep to boosting the immune system, helping you to breathe easily and easing common skin conditions, salt therapy could be what you have been looking for.

Salt therapy simply means breathing in salty air. This is done in a salt-steam room where steam is infused with salt. It dates back in ancient history yet salt therapy has become increasingly popular recently as people look to naturally cure certain conditions.

Salt room benefits are scientifically proven and it is a 100% natural treatment.


It uses the goodness of salt to rejuvenate you both inside and out. Here’s how.


Breathe easy


One of the many salt room benefits is that it helps to alleviate the symptoms of respiratory conditions such as asthma. This condition affects 5.4 million people in the UK today. Most of us feel the benefits of spending the day at the seaside, which largely comes from breathing in the salty air. A salt room recreates the same effect, just on a grander scale. Salt is known for its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties as well as being a natural antihistamine. This is why it is scientifically proven to help conditions resulting from congestion by eliminating toxins from the body. So, salt room benefits include better breathing and clearer airways.


Skin conditions


Salt room benefits include being a great natural exfoliant, helping to shed dead skin cells and leaving skin looking brighter. It also controls healthy oil production to naturally hydrate the skin and help to prevent breakouts. These oils also have anti-aging properties by keeping the skin moisturised. Time spent in a salt room benefits certain skin conditions such as eczema or acne as those antibacterial qualities come into their own again. In addition, dry salt is absorbent so salt room benefits the skin as small particles sink into the skin’s epidermis. This helps to absorb spot-causing oil and bacteria as well as treat skin conditions which result from inflammation, such as psoriasis. Time spent in a salt room could leave you with an otherwise unachievable natural glow.


Rest and relaxation


Even if you are lucky enough to have a healthy body, there are still salt room benefits which could help you. A session in a salt room will be very calm, relaxing and rejuvenating to help your body unwind from whatever is happening in your day-to-day life. Think back to that trip to the seaside. You may well have enjoyed a great night’s sleep afterwards. This is because salt is a natural hypnotic. So, salt room benefits you by sending you into a deep and natural sleep. Quality sleep reduces stress, boosts energy levels and gives your body the opportunity to repair itself. In the long term, it also reduces the risk of medical conditions such as obesity, diabetes and heart disease.
