Dry salt therapy (halotherapy) is a natural, drug-free, non-invasive treatment that utilizes a halogenerator to grind, crush, and disperse micron-sized particles into the salt room to help aid respiratory concerns and skin conditions. Dry salt therapy acts to cleanse the respiratory system and the skin, which helps to relieve congestion, inflammation, and skin conditions. Sessions are non-invasive; guests remain fully clothed. During the 30 minute session guests are invited to sit back, relax and take a break from the busyness of the day while receiving this deeply healing respiratory therapy.
The salt, 99.99% pure grade sodium chloride, is heated and then ground and crushed into very tiny microparticles. These dry aerosol microparticles of salt are then dispersed into the salt room where they are inhaled and penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. The non inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin and are absorbed. When your session is over, you may notice a faint trace of salt on your lips, and the slight taste of salt on your tongue. Any salt that collects on your clothing can be easily brushed off. A runny nose or increase in coughing is a common indicator your body is working to expel mucus and unwanted debris from your airways.
