Authentic Salt Therapy?
Authentic salt therapy breathing centers will have a certified halotherapist. A certified halotherapist will recommend a personal treatment for your specific condition.
There are three primary characteristics of pure sodium chloride, NaCl, known as salt:
Salt is super absorbent (especially when it is completely dry)
Salt is anti-bacterial
Salt is anti-inflammatory
Dry pharmaceutical grade salt is placed into a halogenerator that then precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles and then disperses the salt aerosol into the air. As the salt travels in the salt room, these salt particles of dry sodium chloride are inhaled into the respiratory system.
The dry salt naturally starts to absorb and kill bacteria, allergens, toxins in your upper and lower respiratory tract. The properties of dry salt also absorb impurities and provide anti-bacterial properties that benefit the skin such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema as well as regulates the skin's micro-circulation. The smaller particles can reach beneath the skin’s surface and absorb moisture towards the skin.
The larger salt particles land on the skin and absorb any bacteria and foreign substances. The dry salt accelerates cell rejuvenation and improves skin rigidity. The climate conditions in a dry salt room, therefore, must maintain a certain temperature and humidity levels and proper ventilation to ensure the efficacy of the salt therapy.
