Taking wellness to another level, halotherapy—a.k.a. salt therapy—remains a top spa trend. (Halo is Greek for salt.) Salt therapy is similar to spending time in the salty sea air, which offers many more benefits than just relaxation on the beach. 

The benefits of salt therapy are wide-ranging.  A natural disinfectant, salt is antimicrobial, and antibacterial. 

The negatively charged ions in salt improv 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 breath easier after halotherapy.

The calming and detoxifying effects of halotherapy 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 with halotherapy (psoriasis, rashes, eczema, acne). 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. 

Dry salt air is more powerful than moist air. Kinetically activated dry salt particles are like an army of janitors helping to detox the respiratory system,” explains Ulle Pukk, founder of Salt Chamber Inc. Spa experts note that the concentration of particles in halotherapy is about 10 to 15 times the concentration found by the sea, so a 20-minute session is equal to a day by the sea.  

 Testimonials from clients support the health claims and many say they have less need for inhalers and decongestants.

Similar to a meditation session, you breath deeply while listening to calming music and focusing on the natural beauty of the salt crystals. The pure environment is precisely balanced with 40 to 50 percent humidity and 70 to 75 degrees F temperatures. 

Breathing salty air is a refreshing ritual to add to your wellness routine. Experience natural detoxification and see for yourself if you breathe easier.
