Cold and Flu season is upon us again, and that means stuffy noses, aching bodies, and respiratory issues are back, too. Thankfully, those side-effects usually clear up when your cold does, but sometimes symptoms can still linger, even when you’re no longer contagious. But don’t despair, there are ways to help alleviate these symptoms naturally here at Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach.
But how can a spa help with your breathing? In our Himalayan Salt Suite it’s easy. All you have to do is breathe! That’s because our Himalayan Salt Suite uses Himalayan salt to encourage healing, and Himalayan salt has natural inflammatory properties. It’s called halotherapy, and it’s been used for centuries- all the way back to medieval times, by using Himalayan salt to treat the lungs. Himalayan salt is antimicrobial and antibacterial, helping to break down bacteria in your lungs that may be causing difficulty breathing. This includes making it easier to loosen mucus in the lungs.
Himalayan salt also has antihistamine properties, which means it can reduce inflammation, which in turn reduces congestion in the sinuses. It has even been used to help treat the symptoms of ear infections, which can occur due to sinus blockages, especially during cold and flu season.
Halotherapy isn’t just good for when you’re sick, either. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Halotherapy can also help with respiratory issues from asthma and allergies as well.
If you smoke, Halotherapy can help with discomfort and breathing problems brought on by cigarette or other smoke. Halotherapy can be a valuable tool to help you quit smoking, as well, so if you’re thinking of quitting smoking for your New Year’s resolution, consider a Halotherapy package to assist you.
The best thing about Halotherapy treatments at Cinzia Spa is their ability to not only help reduce cold symptoms, but it can also help keep you healthy so that cold never finds you in the first place! This is because it also reduces stress, which in turn keeps your immune system strong, helping your body to fight off illness before it has a chance to affect you.
At Cinzia Spa in Myrtle Beach, we recommend regular visits in intervals of your choosing to the Halotherapy Suite to enjoy all of the benefits of this all-natural treatment, however if you are struggling to regain healthy breathing, we recommend visiting the Halotherapy Suite at least three times per week until you are feeling better.
