Frequently Asked Questions
Dry salt therapy is a holistic, 100% natural drug free therapy using micro particles of salt to promote better breathing, healthier skin, sounder sleep, improved physical fitness and endurance and overall wellness.
Our Salt is of the highest quality medical grade salt (sodium chloride) (NaCl).
It is Antibacterial, Anti-inflammatory, Has Mucolytic effects: loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport, removes pathogen agents (airborne pollen), Reduces IgE level (immune system over-sensitivity).
What happens is the salt is grounded into tiny micro particles by our certified, high tech halo generator and then dispersed into the salt room. Customers inhale the dry, salt-enriched air deep down into the lungs, where the healing benefits really start to heal. 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 micro-circulation.
Negative ions counterbalance the many positive ions we pick up from electronic devices like cell phones, tablets, etc. Neutralizing the atmosphere in this way stabilizes mood, decreases stress and prepares the body for ultimate healing, The aim is for you to really relax and enjoy your experience.
A salt cave session last 60 minutes for adults and a child is 45 minutes. Each session requires no more than lying back in a comfortable seat and breathing deeply. Micro particles of salt are dispersed into the room by the halo generator while you relax, read, listen to music, sleep or meditate.
Comfortable clothing is recommended for the salt room. You may change into clothing that exposes areas of skin you would like the salt to reach (shorts, sleeveless shirts, skirts, etc).
Since dry salt therapy is 100% natural and drug free, there are no negative side effects. After sessions, you may experience a slight cough, minor tightness in the chest or runny nose, but this is simply the salt doing its work to remove mucus and toxins from the lungs and airways.
