What is Salt Therapy?
Halotherapy or Salt therapy is the therapeutic use of natural salt in a simulated microclimate, like a salt room, where pulverized salt is blown into the room for occupants to passively breathe in.
The Synergy Salt Room® experience is superior to most other salt rooms because we feature only the finest Himalayan Salts in our therapy center.
Pure Relaxation. During the 45-minute session, you can relax, enjoy music or read in our cozy, spa-like salt covered rooms while breathing in microscopic salt particles. Salt acts like an expectorant, accelerating mucus clearance and improving lung function while killing harmful bacteria and soothing the respiratory system.
Once the salt particles enter the sinus and lung cavities, it reacts with the mucus by decreasing the thickness and allowing it to be expelled. Drawing out the mucus helps rid the nasal and lung passageways of allergens, bacteria and mucus blockage. As a result, you breathe more easily and deeply, drawing more oxygen into your system.
The pulverized nutrient-rich salt, which you breathe in during salt therapy, benefits the irritated lining of the nasal sinuses and lungs, from the bronchi down to the alveoli. With its natural anti-inflammatory properties, salt reduces tissue irritation and swelling, opening the airways for improved breathing.
In many chronic upper and lower respiratory tract conditions airways become narrowed and irritated filling with mucus where bacteria flourishes. Not only does salt help expel bacteria thru mucus clearance, but salt is also a natural antibacterial and can kill bacteria in the respiratory tracts.
Health Benefits of Himalayan Salt
Himalayan Salt is Nutrient-Rich
Himalayan salt is praised for its nutritional content because of all the essential minerals it contains. This naturally-occurring option does not have any chemical or artificial additives and is considered by many a healthy substitute for other salts. Although minerals like iron, magnesium, calcium and potassium can be commonly found in a lot of food products, Himalayan salt can additionally offer access to some harder-to-come-by options like boron, zinc, selenium and copper.
Regulating Cardiovascular Functions
As the mineral form of sodium chloride, rock salt provides your body with the sodium it needs in order to regulate blood volume, blood pressure and even the transmission of nerve impulses. Sodium is an essential nutrient that our bodies physiologically require access to. Individuals who actually suffer from hyponatremia, a low sodium concentration in the blood, may ultimately suffer from a variety of ailments including cardio, liver and kidney health problems.
Providing a Healing and Detoxifying Treatment
When used as a vapor or added to bath water, Himalayan salt helps to draw toxins out of your body. As a bath salt, it gives your skin access to healing minerals. Since what you put on your skin can end up in your bloodstream, you want to be careful about the quality of salt you use. Himalayan salt is famous for its therapeutic qualities, its purity, and for face and body scrubs to help soften and exfoliate your skin.
