What is Salt Therapy?

What is Salt Therapy?

When you heat salt, it becomes super dry, and kinetically more active. This heated and dry pure sodium chloride is crushed into micro-sized particles and dispersed into the air. When micro-particles of dry salt is inhaled into the respiratory system, it absorbs and removes all the allergens, toxins and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract.

Salt can also reduce any inflammation and open airway passages. The properties of salt also absorb impurities and provide antibacterial properties that benefit the skin such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. The dry salt accelerates cell rejuvenation and improves skin rigidity

Benefits

Mood

In dry salt therapy, the negative ions are believed to neutralize the atmosphere and the body. When inhaled, it can improve your mood, decrease stress and heal the body. The negative ions can offset positive ions emitted by electronic devices such as cell phones, computers and televisions.

Respiratory System

Scientific studies have found that pure salt is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and has the ability to remove airborne pathogens. When you breathe in microscopic salt particles, the salt penetrates deep into the respiratory system to absorb toxins, allergens and foreign substances.

Skin

Salt particles penetrate the surface of the skin. Scientific research confirms that salt repairs the skin, balances the pH and stimulates cell growth. Salt therapy can also aid in the prevention of aging skin. People who deal with skin issues will benefit from antibacterial properties as it begins to clear up their conditions.

Athletes

The primary goal of every athlete is to achieve absolute, maximum potential. One of the most important determinants of whether this is possible is an optimum breathing pattern and lung capacity. Better breathing patterns can help increase stamina, reduce dehydration, reduce build-up of lactic acid and increase concentration.

Sleep

Sleep apnea and snoring can be caused by obstructed air passages. As the dry salt is breathed in, it passes through the back of the throat where the relaxed muscles cause the narrowing of the airways and vibration that results in snoring. Over time, the salt can help to strengthen this area and open the airway. This will result in better sleep.

Although dry salt therapy is safe and effective for most individuals, it is not recommended for people with contagious diseases, fever, open wounds, cancer, severe hypertension, mental disorders, or active tuberculosis. Pregnant women and persons with serious health concerns should consult their physician before engaging in dry salt therapy.​
