HEALING SALT THERAPY
HOW IT WORKS
Halotherapy optimizes therapeutic benefits by using a clinically proven dry salt therapy. Our standards require 100% pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride (salt) to be heated evaporating all moisture and maximizing the salt’s bactericide, mucokinetic, hydrophilic and anti-inflammatory properties. Heat removes all moisture so when the salt is crushed and grinded into micro-particles and inhaled the therapeutic benefits are most effective and able to reach the entire respiratory tract. Next, the therapeutic parameters (such as salt particle concentration, size, and speed of aerosol) are tailored to a client’s individual wellness goals using state-of-the-art Halogenerator. These therapeutic parameters are preset, and then controlled and maintained by the Halogenerator. A low concentration of aerosol salt is dispersed into the therapy room.
There are no special clothes or needles. There’s nothing to ingest and no invasive procedures. With dry salt aerosol therapy you simply relax on a chair and the micro-particles are inhaled during sessions that last 10 minutes. The particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli.
WHY IT WORKS FOR RESPITORY TRACT AND LUNGS?
With Dry Salt Therapy, the full benefits of bactericide, mucokinetic, hydrophilic and anti-inflammatory properties are realized. Dry salt is super absorbent attracting pollutants and allergens throughout the respiratory tract. The dry salt stimulates the body’s internal processes for cleansing the respiratory system removing build-up of foreign particles that cause various respiratory ailments and ultimately strengthening respiratory function. With dry salt aerosol the particle size, concentration and speed of dispersement can be calculated to achieve tailored beneficial therapy.
WHY IT WORKS FOR THE SKIN?
The micro-particles of salt influence the skin’s protective layer (integument system) and hairs providing healing and aesthetic (cosmetic) benefits by increasing the activity of skin cell ion channels. The process of electrophysiological activity is increased enhancing the protective properties of the skin resulting in Ph normalization, reparative and regenerative processes. The micro-particles of salt trigger skin microcirculation and cellular membrane activity enhancing overall health of the skin. Sodium chloride particles bearing a negative electrical charge come into contact with the skin surface and cause electrical stimulation to the skin cells. This stimulation activates electrophysiological activity, which increases the production of collagen fibers, which is a key process to skin rejuvenation. Additionally, negative ions, which are absorbed into the body during the therapy, help strengthen the immune system by increasing the production capacity of lymph cells. Since some skin diseases such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis are a direct result of immune system failures, this aspect of strengthening the immune system will help improve the body’s reaction to the ailment.
Dry Salt Therapy or Halotherapy originated as Speleotherapy over a 100 years in Eastern Europe for the therapeutic wellness of respiratory diseases. Speleotherapy has evolved into modern-day dry salt aerosol therapy to provide natural symptom relief for a variety of respiratory and skin diseases. The technique is commonly used today throughout the world with documented and consistently positive results. Dry Salt Aerosol has been recognized in Europe for over 50 years for the treatment of breathing and skin problems. In the United States, dry salt aerosol is a natural alternative therapy and not a medical treatment.
Salt aerosol inhalation and the use of saline solutions are not new medical practices. Doctors have been using saline in mainstream medicine for irrigating wounds, tissues, body cavities and bladders; flushing of catheters and medical equipment; intravenous saline infusion for dehydration and post operative recovery; nasal washes to relieve symptoms of sinuses and common cold and hypertonic saline to help as a mucus expectorate. Many people use saline therapy in their home as saline nebulizer or mister for nasal congestion, Epson salt bath for muscle aches/pains, or have used a Nettie pot to clear nasal passages/sinuses or gargled with salt water for a sore throat. In wet aerosol inhalations, the aerosol takes the form of a mist or fine droplets. Although this therapy has benefits, the overall effectiveness is limited because the wet droplets only reach the upper respiratory tract not reaching the sinuses, lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli, the deepest part of the lungs. This reduces the salt’s therapeutic efficacy because it does not get inhaled deep into the respiratory tract where the salt’s effect would be most needed.
