What is Salt Therapy?
Salt Therapy is a natural, drug free, holistic therapy using micro particles of salt to promote better, healthier skin. Salt therapy also helps to alleviate symptoms of many respiratory and skin conditions.
How does Salt Therapy Work?
Salt has the following properties:
- Mucolytic effects: loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport
- Removes pathogen agents
- Reduces immune system oversensitivity
In salt therapy rooms, the salt is grounded into tiny micro particles by a halo generator and then dispersed into the salt room or bed.
People inhale the dry, salt-enriched air deep down into the lungs. The salt widens the airways and loosens the mucus, which begins to clear quickly, and inflammation is reduced, which makes you breathe easier. Symptoms are often reduced, sometimes for up to 12 months. While the air particles that land on your skin, help to balance pH and induce a reparative and regenerative process in the skin.
Are there any side effects of Salt Therapy?
Since dry salt therapy is 100% natural and drug free, there are no negative side effects.
How many times should you do Salt Therapy?
Depending on age and stage of your condition, around 20 sessions are recommended for long term results. Sessions should be frequent, about 2-3 a week is a suggested amount
In most patients, after a course of Dry Salt, airways become normal and symptoms disappear. The treatment’s efficacy is estimated at 75-98% (That is based on client’s satisfaction no, long-term studies have been made yet). Most people do 1-2 Salt Therapy courses a year, but people might come for more if they are feeling weak and want to regenerate.
What does Salt Therapy help with?
While salt therapy helps with numerous conditions, you should not stop taking your medication during salt therapy, it should be used as a complementary treatment only.

While some people do not notice improvement, it does work wonders for others. I think you should be a bit of a sceptic when it comes to new health fads ( example – Clean Eating. It started as a fad, but it quickly turned into something more ) , but you should defiantly try it, and see if it works for you.
