Salt Therapy for Breathing Conditions

Salt therapy is a complementary natural alternative to effectively manage your symptoms from allergies, asthma, bronchitis, COPD, sinusitis, smoker’s cough and upper respiratory infections.  

Asthma

Asthma is described as a hypersensitivity reaction where the immune system triggers an inflammatory reaction that damages the airways to protect your body from allergens. Salt has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that help clean your body from these allergens like mold, dust, pollens, and smoke – reducing your chances of an asthma attack.

COPD

Salt rooms help people alleviate their COPD at any stage of the illness. With less coughing and thinning of the mucus, you’ll find that less respiratory infections are possible, and you’ll breathe better. Inhalation of salt particles may potentially help reduce inflammation in the airways, which is a common characteristic of COPD. By reducing inflammation, salt therapy may help alleviate symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath.​

Smokers Cough/Emphysema

When you have smoker’s cough/emphysema, you may experience shortness of breath and confusion due to the lack of oxygen. Halotherapy helps open the damaged air passages and clears them of harmful toxins, allowing you to breathe a little easier.

Sinusitis

Sinusitis is caused by the applied pressure on the wall of the sinus cavity due to an infection or a build-up of mucus. The salty air in our suites can help cleanse your nasal cavity, helping to manage your body’s mucus production and nasal inflammation.

Allergies

Salt therapy soothes your airways and absorbs the irritants and allergens lining them. Therefore, the salt helps to lower your body’s immune response to allergens and inflammation, lowering your overall symptoms. With regular exposure to salt therapy, some people tend to notice less reliance on over-the-counter antihistamine medications over time.

Upper Respiratory Infection

Ever suffered from an upper respiratory infection? Boost your immune system and relieve sinus pressure with salt therapy. Your nasal passages will begin to open naturally, without the use of nasal sprays and decongestants. Not only are you alleviating your symptoms, but the salt is also working to help fight the infection and lessens the tendency of it coming back.

Respiratory Benefits

Improved respiratory function: Supporters of salt therapy suggest that spending time in salt rooms may help improve overall respiratory function. The inhalation of salt particles is believed to have a cleansing effect on the respiratory system, helping to clear mucus and reduce inflammation in the airways.

Relief from respiratory conditions: Salt rooms are often marketed as a complementary therapy for various respiratory conditions, including asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, and allergies. Some individuals report experiencing temporary relief from symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, congestion, and shortness of breath after salt room sessions. However, the scientific evidence supporting these claims is limited, and individual experiences can vary.

Reduced airway inflammation: Salt has natural anti-inflammatory properties, and it is believed that inhaling salt particles in a salt room may help reduce inflammation in the airways. This effect could potentially benefit individuals with respiratory conditions characterized by inflammation, such as asthma.

Enhanced mucociliary clearance: The salt particles in the air of salt rooms are thought to stimulate the mucociliary clearance system. This system is responsible for removing mucus and trapped particles from the respiratory tract. By promoting the movement of mucus, salt therapy proponents claim that it may help individuals expel mucus more effectively.
