Have you ever wondered what salt room therapy could do for your health? The benefits of this treatment are widespread, encouraging people of all ages and physical conditions to book an afternoon at a salt spa. A large number of these people will deal with respiratory and skin conditions – two problems that can be relieved with regular trips to a ‘salt cave’. Known as halotherapy, salt treatments have been recommended by philosophers and ancient healers for thousands of years. After all, there is so much salt in the world that it dominates a big percentage of the production industry, particularly in China and the United States. Let’s find out more about why these treatments are so worthwhile.
Salt Loosens Mucus
Did you know that salty air offers anti-inflammatory benefits? The air is known to kill bacteria and therefore, by spending your money on salt room therapy sessions, you can expect your immune system to strengthen by great means. This will reduce the risks of you developing infections, which can sometimes begin when mucus forms on the lungs. Mucolytic effects can leave you feeling under the weather. However, visiting a salt spa a few times a week will make the mucociliary transport speed up, reducing inflammation and clearing mucus.
Fill the Lungs with Salt-Enriched Air
Yes, you could go to the beach to inhale salt-enriched air, but salt room therapy is actually more effective, unless you want to spend hours at the beach, that is. Various lung-related conditions can be healed when this air is inhaled, such as nasty coughs, bronchitis and emphysema. This form of therapy is even proven to help reduce the symptoms of cystic fibrosis, with symptoms subsiding for up to a year after regular treatments at a trusted spa or skincare clinic. Patient health has been monitored to prove this, so you can rely on this treatment to increase your resistance to respiratory tract infections, among many other problems.
Relieve Symptoms of Eczcema and Psoriasis
A lot of over-the-counter treatments can be relied on to relieve the itchy, sore feelings that are linked with eczema and psoriasis. Although these could make a difference to your skin condition, salt room therapy will be a better alternative. Plan to attend at least 15 sessions and the long-term results will be amazing. Even if the skin has split and become red, the salty environment will work its natural magic healing powers to both moisturize and help the skin to recover.
