THE SCIENCE BEHIND SALT THERAPY

 

BOOK YOUR APPOINTMENT

Salt therapy is also known as Halotherapy, which derives from the Greek word for salt. It dates back to the Greek and Roman times when it is believed that they bathed in salt water to cure a host of ailments. In addition, Catholic monks in medieval Europe are thought to have brought unwell people into salt caves. They crushed the salt with their feet to release it into the air to help with respiratory conditions.

In 1840, Polish doctor Dr Feliks Boczkowski really uncovered the benefits.

He was treating miners and noticed that whilst coal miners were suffering with breathing problems, salt miners had no such problems. He published his findings and it is his theory which forms the basis of salt therapy today.

Put simply, it is the inhalation of air infused with salt which is carried out in a humidity-free salt lounge. A halogenerator grinds salt into microscopic particles and releases them into the air of the salt lounge which are then inhaled. This helps to absorb germs, irritants, allergens and toxins leaving airways clearer and helping you to breathe easier.

Respiratory problems often occur due to mucus causing inflammation and narrowing of the airways, which makes it difficult to breathe. The treatment dehydrates the mucus so it can be dislodged and removed leaving the person the ability to breathe clearly and deeply.

Salt therapy helps damaged skin from the outside by dehydrating the skin to tighten a wound and smooth the skin. It also increases the oxygen in the circulatory system to help heal from inside too. Salt therapy also absorbs impurities, oil and bacteria from the skin leaving you with a healthy and glowing complexion.

The negative ions in salt are also thought to promote better sleep and reduce stress levels.

Salt therapy is recognised as a safe and effective practice for both preventative and restorative care for a range of ailments and conditions. However, salt therapy is not a medical treatment and should not be used to replace anything prescribed by your doctor. We suggest consulting your doctor before having salt therapy, especially if you have a serious medical concern or condition.

Contraindications: Halotherapy is recognized as safe and effective wellness practice for preventive and restorative health care. It is not a medical treatment and does not offer cure! Halotherapy is not recommended for people with contagious diseases, fever, open wounds, cancer, severe hypertension and active tuberculosis. Pregnant women should consult with their doctor before using Halotherapy. Anyone with serious health concerns need to seek proper medical advice and care.
