What is Salt Detox? 

A Salt Therapy also known as “Halotherapy”. Halo is a Greek word for “salt”. Salt Therapy has been used by ancient healers for many years for the respiratory system and health problems.


What are the benefits of Salt Therapy?

Salt Therapy has taken wellness to a whole new level. Salt is a natural disinfectanct with antimicrobial, and antibacterial health properties.  Some of its many benefits are:

CYSTIC FIBROSIS               BRONCHITIS                        FIBROMYALGIA

SLEEP APNEA                     SLEEP AWAKES                ENERGY BOOST  

The benefits of salt therapy are wide-ranging. Salt levels affect our cell activity, energy and blood sugar levels. A natural disinfectant, salt is antimicrobial, and antibacterial. Salt comes in empty processed forms or healthier pure sea salt (Himalayan and Dead Sea salt) that contain 84 elements and trace elements found in the human body. Dry salt air is more powerful than moist air.
The negatively charged ions in salt improve our health and mood. Inhaling particles may reduce inflammation and mucus in the lungs, improving respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Scientific studies show that people with asthma and other ailments breathe easier after halotherapy
When your body comes into contact with allergens, your immune system can inflame your skin, sinus airways or digestive tract. Inflammation can be reduced by inhaling natural salt particles during a dry salt therapy session. Salt’s ability to absorb edema from swollen mucosa linings in the sinus and respiratory tracts opens airways to provide relief. Improved drainage can allow for reduction in contaminants that may trigger or prolong allergic episodes.

Exposure to natural salt properties can stimulate cell regrowth and regeneration through an increase in activity of the skins ion channels. Dry salt particles balance skin pH and reduce harmful bacteria and inflammation, often seen in dry red patches caused by dermatitis and eczema.

Obstructed airways can cause snoring and sleep apnea. Dry salt therapy can relieve obstructed air passageways due to the anti-inflammatory properties of salt particles. Air passageways can widen and irritation of inflamed tissue can take place, resulting in restful breathing while sleeping.

As you enter a salt session, healing takes place on a variety of levels. The intentionally created stress-free environment provides an isolated experience that allows the body to engage positive ions, which calm and relax the internal nervous system as you inhale salt particles. Charged particles coat your skin, reducing hypersensitivity caused by everyday environmental stresses, encouraging regeneration. A balance can be achieved aiding in your overall wellness

Lung function is improved as salt widens and clears your respiratory system. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory sodium chloride particles have the ability to reach the deepest recesses of the bronchial system, translating to clearer air passages and fewer spasmodic attacks. Reduced inflammation and wider airways can decrease constricted breathing. Wheezing, coughing and dependence on inhalers can improve from continued sessions.

How does it work?

Salt has the following properties:
Mucolytic effects: loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport
Removes pathogen agents (airborne pollen)
Reduces I.gE level (immune system oversensitivity)

The salt is grounded into tiny micro particles and then dispersed into the salt room. While relaxing in our THE DETOX SALT ROOM our customers inhale the dry, salt-enriched air deep down into the lungs, where the healing benefits do their greatest healing. The salt widens the airways and loosens the mucus, which begins to clear quickly, and inflammation is reduced, which makes more room in the airways for you to breathe. Symptoms subside, sometimes for up to 12 months. The non-inhaled particles landing on the skin help to balance pH and induce the reparative and regenerative processes in the skin, increasing rigidity and stimulating cell growth and microcirculation.

Specific to our THE DETOX SALT ROOM, we use Himalayan salt lamps and cover the floor in Dead Sea Salt to generate negative ions, which help to counterbalance the influx of positive ions from the many electronic devices we use every day. This improves your overall mental and emotional health, helping you to relax and de-stress.  

The calming and detoxifying effects in THE DETOX SALT ROOM can support the immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. Additional benefits are reduced stress and headaches, increased energy, and better sleep patterns. Salt ions purify the air and may increase lung capacity and reduce physical ailments for adults, children and athletes. Treatments are recommended to help keep the body healthy during flu or allergy seasons.

Skin conditions can also be improved such as (psoriasis, rashes, eczema, acne and etc). Table salt, sodium chloride, is dehydrating, but pure mineral salts have natural moisturizing properties and support the skin’s water balance and barrier function by attracting moisture to the skin. Minerals are necessary for cell function and detoxification, so mineral salts have strong rejuvenating properties.
