How does Salt Therapy work?
The primary mechanism of action in Halotherapy is the dry aerosol of salt, that has a particle size of 1-5 microns, and a negative electrical charge. The dry salt aerosol is blown into the salt room. In addition, the HIMALAYAN walls and the floor of the salt room are covered with salt. The salt room provides a negative ion environment (like the seashore), which contributes to a feeling of well being and promotes STRESS reduction. The particles of salt are inhaled and travel into the deepest parts of the lungs and sinuses. The inhalation of the salt particles helps to reduce inflammation in the airways, opens constricted airways, and increases the clearance of mucous. Between each session and before sessions begin- the room is completely ventilated for 15 minutes to remove bacterias, germs and virus, from the air

similar to being by the ocean. Others may experience a mild throat tickle, which can be easily treated by sipping warm water after the session. Most people will experience increased mucous production. This will present itself in the form of a runny nose or a productive cough after the session. This is the body’s natural mechanism for elimination of toxins, pollens, and viruses. If you have ever smoked in the past, you may experience a period of cough and mucous production as your body naturally clears the lungs of residual toxins. Most asthmatics will also experience an initial period of increased mucous production and cough as the body decreases inflammation, opens airways, and expels the stagnant.
How many treatments you need?
Every experience is different, and it depends on the type and severity of your condition. Based on the research, we would recommend a course of 12-15 treatments, preferably within 4-8 weeks. You may feel some improvement after a single session, but a series of treatments is required to achieve long-term results. For mild conditions, 6-8 treatments may be enough. Some people use treatments as a preventative measure to avoid the common cold, and other respiratory viruses.
Is there any contraindication?
Treatment should be avoided during the acute phase of any illness, including the following: infections accompanied by fever, acute active tuberculosis, cardiac insufficiency, COPD in the third stage, bleeding, spitting of blood, alcohol or drug intoxication, unstable or uncontrolled hypertension, and acute stages of respiratory diseases. Salt therapy may produce slight skin irritation on some individuals that will disappear after a few sessions.
