Halotherapy: Frequently Asked Questions

How does it work?

Pure “dry” sodium chloride is heated and  ground up. The micro-sized crushed salt particles are then dispersed into the air in an enclosed environment. These particles of fine salt penetrate deep within the respiratory system and work to remove mucous build up and eliminate bacteria and toxins. This unique process helps open and expand the constricted airways allowing individuals to breathe easier and more clearly. Dry Salt Therapy also provides amazing skin rejuvenating benefits when the epidermis is exposed during treatment.

What are the benefits and conditions Halotherapy treats?
Dry Salt Therapy has many positive effects on our respiratory, skin and immune systems. It reduces bronchial inflammation, thins and removes mucous from the lungs, as well as improves lung capacity and functionality. It also reduces skin inflammation, improves cellular rejuvenation and decreases itching and irritated skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Dry Salt Therapy has also been very successful in reducing stress as well as enhancing our cardiovascular system.

In addition, those who suffer from the following conditions can greatly benefit from the halotherapy.

Are there any side effects?
Normally there are no side effects. Some people might experience a scratchy throat or a tickle in their sinuses. A simple drink of water will relieve the throat.  Others who might be slightly more sensitive could experience a minor skin irritation, which tends to go away after a session or two. For those who experience a slight cough, this is a sign that the salt therapy is effectively working. The body is loosening and releasing all the mucous buildup.

How many sessions/times a week is necessary?
Halotherapy offers the best results when practiced regularly. The benefits are accumulative where consistency and frequency is the key. People with chronic issues will benefit more if visiting salt rooms at least 3-4 times a week. Those who are looking to incorporate Salt Therapy into their regular wellness routine would benefit from a weekly session. Halotherapy is safe to use on a daily basis if desired.

What is the treatment duration per session?
10 to 20 minutes in our booth.

What results can patients expect?
Many patients who have asthma, allergies and other bronchial issues have seen some amazing results in a short period of time. Breathing became easier; more energy was experienced and just an overall better quality of life. We do not make any medical claims about Dry Salt Therapy but after receiving treatments patient’s respiratory issues and lung function have vastly improved. In addition, those who have severe skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema or acne have also had incredible improvements in the health of their skin.
