What is Halotherapy?
Halotherapy is a treatment that makes use of salt, and is usually broken down into dry and wet approaches. The dry method in our modern era is typically conducted in a man-made, controlled salt “cave” or room completely free of humidity, where one inhales (and is immersed in) dry micro-particles of salt created by a halogenerator. This originated in Eastern Europe in the 12th century, and involved spending time in naturally occurring salt caves (speleotherapy).
Wet methods include bathing in mineral salt water, ingesting salt water, using it for nasal irrigation, and flotation tanks filled with salt water.
Researchers have only recently attempted to study potential benefits, and most studies are small and observational. But proponents point to those that show benefit for respiratory conditions such as asthma, chronic bronchitis and allergies–and for skin conditions from psoriasis to acne.
Who can benefit from Halotherapy (Salt Therapy)?
A majority of people (adults, children, athletes and animals) who visit salt rooms on a regular basis may find relief from a variety of respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, common cold, bronchitis, COPD, cystic fibrosis, and more. Dry salt therapy is great for people who also have particular skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, and recovering from cosmetic surgery.
However, one does not need to have any conditions since dry salt therapy is very beneficial for overall general wellness by removing the toxicity from the respiratory system. People are exposed on a daily basis to pollutants, airborne diseases, bacteria, allergens and other irritating and harmful factors. That is why this is an excellent way to cleanse and detox the lungs as well as invigorate the whole body with increased lung capacity and oxygen intake.
For general respiratory hygiene, once or twice a week visiting your local salt therapy facility will enhance the lung capacity, boost the immune system, reduce stress, and aid better sleep.
More chronic and acute respiratory conditions require increased frequency and consistency of the sessions. Experiencing three to seven times a week for a period of 14 to 21 days will help to manage the symptoms and provide relief over time.
