What is Salt room therapy?
Salt therapy, also known as Halotherapy, is a drug-free, non-invasive treatment that alleviates the health problems associated with asthma, allergies, sinusitis, bronchitis, and a host of other respiratory illnesses. Along with healing benefits for chronic skin conditions; such as, eczema, psoriasis, acne, etc. It is a modern-day therapeutic method based on the principle of the natural salt mine micro-climate (Speleotherapy), where frequent exposure to the salt produced healing results for miners and others experiencing respiratory illnesses. As you relax in a comfortable, climate-controlled room surrounded by mineral salt, salt micro-particles are emitted into the room and passively enter your lungs to initiate the healing process.
Can I pick up germs in the salt room?
There are NO germs to be picked up in either salt rooms. One of the best things about Himalayan Salt is that it is 100% anti-fungal and anti-bacteria. Himalayan salt has a natural property that absorbs bacteria. In addition, the floors are covered with pure Himalayan salt, which creates sterile conditions in each room. In addition to all the properties the salt has to offer, after each session, the room is fully ventilated; sending the old air outside and bringing fresh air in.
Is salt therapy safe for kids?
Absolutely! Salt therapy is a completely drug-free treatment for children and adults. Children as young as 3 months have benefitted greatly and respond quickly and effectively to Halotherapy. Children are more prone to respiratory problems because they pick up more viruses and their lungs are not fully developed until about the age of 9. In addition, the environment is filled with pollutants which children have a harder time keeping at bay.
