What is Salt Therapy?

Salt Therapy is the process of breathing dry, micronized salt particles in the form of aerosolized salt . These micronized salt particles can travel to the smallest and deepest areas of the lungs and sinus passages. Salt Therapy helps to support the body's immune system in the thinning and excretion of mucus, and by reducing inflammation in the airways. Allergens and pollutants can more easily be eliminated from the body as the mucus thins and as constriction is reduced in the bronchi and bronchioles.

Salt Therapy is a drug free treatment for relieving the symptoms of allergies, asthma, COPD and other respiratory conditions. In areas where pollution and pollen levels are high, salt therapy can be a powerful ally in the battle to relieve the discomfort of respiratory and skin conditions.

Salt Therapy can also benefit skin health. The respiratory system is a pathway to remove toxins from the body. When this pathway is overwhelmed, the skin becomes a secondary, or overflow pathway for toxin removal.  Toxins can then manifest as inflammatory skin conditions including rashes or acne. Salt Therapy is another way we can support the look and health of our skin.

Salt Therapy is a safe, effective complementary tool that can be used in addition to a physician's recommendations for skin and respiratory care. It provides a natural way to cleanse and maintain skin and respiratory system from the inside out.

Salt Therapy is neither a medical treatment nor a replacement for medical care. It is a complementary and drug-free approach that offers adjunct support in relieving respiratory and skin conditions. If you have allergies, asthma, dermatological or other medical conditions, you should always consult your physician. Never stop taking medication without consulting your physician.
