Salt Room & Salt Therapy

Salt room therapy, or halotherapy, which involves a series of sessions in a room that simulates a Salt cave: the walls, floor and ceiling are covered with numerous layers of Salt and a machine disperses fine particles of Salt into the air. The resulting environment has been proven in various clinical studies to alleviate respiratory and skin ailments ranging from asthma to allergies to eczema. A study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that long-term treatment in a Salt room had a positive impact on lung function and reduced pulmonary exacerbations.

A treatment called halotherapy is sweeping the world with hope it may provide help for those suffering from asthma and bronchitis.

The rooms are made entirely from Salt tiles , bricks & blocks blocks and the floors are seeded with crushed Salt.

A pump also sprays the room with fine Salt particles which are inhaled.

Advocates boast the Salt can help more than a dozen ailments.

However, doctors are urging patients not to seek alternative therapies ahead of proven approaches.

The microclimate in our Salt room uses Salt from blocks cut from mines in the Paksitan. The Salt suspended in the air is released naturally through convective diffusion from the walls. By strictly controlling the temperature and humidity it is possible to create a hypo-bacterial and allergen-free air environment. The microscopic Salt molecules (negatively charged ions) travel through the sinus and respiratory systems absorbing moisture, cleansing, clearing mucus and killing bacteria along the way. They also form ionic bonds with contaminants, which are transferred to mucus and phlegm and subsequently discharged from the body.

The Salt particles are so small they are not noticeable and are easily inhaled with natural breathing. Simply by sitting in the Salt room, our clients inhale low concentrations of Salt deep into the lungs. The result is not only optimization of respiration, and therefore cellular function, but also reduction of tissue inflammation and immune system enhancement.

Salt Therapy is 100 per cent natural, drug-free and non-invasive. Although Salt respiratory therapy is new to Canada, USA, in many countries in Europe the therapy is considered conventional and is covered by health insurance programs. There is about a 90 per cent success rate with children under the age of seven. For adults, the success rate is about 70 per cent.

Suitable for adults and children from the age of 4 months and older, speleotherapy can be used as a sole treatment, or to complement other treatments.

In most countries outside of North America it is typically recommended that parents try natural methods of treating their children's asthma and respiratory conditions before using pharmaceutical products. There is concern that hormone (corticosteroids or ICS) inhalation medication can cause serious and dangerous side effects in childhood.

Consult your physician, and ask if Salt respiratory therapy might complement or replace current treatment of your respiratory condition, or that of your child.
