What Can Salt Therapy Do For Me?
Top Questions Asked About Halotherapy
1. What is Halotherapy?:
Halotherapy -otherwise known as salt therapy- is a naturalistic treatment for respiratory issues. Medical grade salt particles are aerosolized into the chamber which is then inhaled through the mouth or nasal passages. Some particles may even be absorbed into the skin. Halotherapy has been used to treat a number of respiratory and skin conditions, by simply breathing.
2. How Does It Work?:
Breathing in the salty ocean air or the salt vapors found in our salt chamber, molecules find their way into your lungs, where they then break down and release the negative ions that may have been building up. The negative ions stimulate the passages of your airways, clearing out the mucus build-up while simultaneously boosting your immune system’s response to the pathogens. It is believed that when negative ions reach your bloodstream, they produce a biochemical reaction that is found to increase serotonin levels. Also, the airborne salt particles react with the skin when
coming in contact, resolving a variety of skin conditions.
3. What Is To Be Expected During My First Session?:
During your session, you will be seated in our relaxing salt chamber, in a zero gravity chair for maximum relaxation. Our chambers give off a soft inviting glow from the pink Himalayan rocks that line our walls. The lights will dim lower for the utmost relaxing experience, and the temperature is
adjustable for each client’s needs, to ensure the chambers are not too hot, cold, or humid!
