How it works

Salt is by nature:

  • Antibacterial
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Mucolytic: loosens excessive mucus
  • A remover of airborne pathogens like pollen
  • A reducer of IgE levels (immune system oversensitivity)

When inhaled into the respiratory system, salt widens airways and loosens the mucus, which begins to clear quickly.

The non-inhaled particles landing on the skin help to balance your pH and induce the reparative and regenerative processes in the skin, increasing rigidity and stimulating cell growth and microcirculation.

The negative ions emitted by salt help to counteract the overexposure to positive ions we get from electronic devices and screens. This improves your overall mental and emotional health, helping your body regain its natural balance and healing abilities.

What is Dry Salt Therapy?

Dry Salt Therapy, or Halotherapy, is a holistic, drug-free, natural therapy using micro-particles of salt to promote better breathing, healthier skin, sounder sleep, improved physical fitness and endurance, and overall wellness. It also helps to alleviate symptoms of many respiratory and skin conditions.

The concentration of salt particles is approximately 10 to 15 times the concentration found by the sea. A 30-minute session is believed to be equivalent to three days by the ocean.

For millennia salt and the sea have been associated with health and therapy. There are records of salt-based therapies dating back to Roman and Medieval times.

Halotherapy (also known as Dry Salt Therapy) derives from the Greek word Halo for salt. Ancient healers and philosophers recommended salt inhalation for the respiratory system and various health problems. Today, it is a top spa trend and an integral part of the therapeutic, restorative program in wellness centers around the world.

The negatively charged ions in salt purify the air and are absorbed by both the skin and air passageways, which can help clear pollens, viruses and other pollutants from the body. Inhaling salt particles may reduce inflammation and mucus in the lungs, improving respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis and sinus congestion.

The salt particles are so small they are not noticeable and are easily inhaled with natural breathing. Scientific studies show that people with asthma and other respiratory ailments breathe easier after Dry Salt Therapy.
