Halotherapy is a treatment involving the breathing of salty air. Not only is it an opportunity to rediscover yourself and practice self-love, but it can also help treat several respiratory conditions, ease anxiety, and even help treat certain skin conditions. Halotherapy dates all the way back to medieval times, but it’s only recently that researchers have begun studying its benefits.
Halotherapy is Safe for Everyone
It doesn’t matter what age you are, halotherapy is a safe treatment, especially for respiratory issues like asthma. It’s something that is safe for women during pregnancy. You don’t ingest the salt, so it won’t affect your blood pressure at all. But it might help with pregnancy-related congestion.
If you want to indulge in halotherapy to treat a condition or symptom, regular sessions are advised. Since salt is natural, this is the type of therapy you can have often. Sessions in our Himalayan Salt Suite last around 30 minutes, leaving you feeling relaxed and refreshed.
But what exactly is halotherapy good for?
1. Treating Skin Conditions
If you suffer from acne, psoriasis, eczema or frequent rashes, Himalayan salt provides natural moisturizing properties while supporting your skin’s water balance and barrier as it attracts moisture to your skin. The minerals are essential for detoxification and cell functionality. So, halotherapy offers strong rejuvenating properties to treat a myriad of skin conditions.
2. Detoxifying and Calming
Halotherapy is both detoxifying and calming. It works to support your lymphatic and nervous systems, reducing headaches and stress, providing better quality sleep, and giving you an energy boost. The salt ions purify the air, helping improve lung capacity and detoxifying the body of harmful toxins.
3. A Mood Boost
Those negatively charged ions found in salt also boost your mood and your health. As you inhale particles, so mucus and inflammation in the lungs are reduced, improving conditions like sinus congestion, allergies, and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. As a result, you can breathe easier, leaving you feeling invigorated and happier.
4. Improved Immune System
Salt is commonly used to preserve food, and for good reason. Research shows that salt reduces bacterial contamination in food from bacteria that cause illnesses such as salmonella, listeria, e-coli, and staphylococcus aureus.
Studies further show that including halotherapy in your health and wellness repertoire when trying to prevent or fight the symptoms we’ve mentioned above can produce positive results. Not only will you leave a therapy session feeling relaxed, less stressed, and mentally clear, but you’ll also have provided your immune system with a healthy boost.
