What is Salt Therapy?

Salt Therapy is also referred to as Halo-therapy is an effective and natural treatment in a controlled environment which replicates the natural salt cave micro-climate to treat skin and respiratory conditions.

The process involves a halo generator which grinds and ionises pharmaceutical grade salt to micro-particles and blows it into the air inside the treatment room.  Ceiling fans then create swirls in the air which keeps the salt particles constantly moving through the air, before being breathed in by the patients or settling on the skin and all surfaces within the room.

Each treatment room is fitted with comfortable chairs where a peaceful and serene ambience is created to help patients relax completely to enjoy their treatment. The children's treatment room is kitted out with toys, a play-pit, books, a football table and a wall-mounted television screen, to keep them entertained during a session.

How Salt Therapy Works
How Salt Therapy Works
Asthma, COPD, Hayfever, and other respiratory conditions:

Due to salt's anti-inflammatory and mucolytic (mucus loosening) properties, it has been shown to be effective at treating many respiratory conditions and can vastly reduce symptoms.

  • Salt helps expand the airways by reducing inflammation, thus making it easier for a patient to breath more easily

     

  • Salt's anti-inflammatory effects help sooth and reduce the symptoms of colds and flu, including blocked sinuses, sore throats, coughs and breathlessness

     

  • Due to the mucolytic effects, the lungs and airways are able to be cleared of stubborn phlegm and mucus

     

  • Salt helps to lower IgE levels (immune systems sensitivity), which helps build a natural resistance to allergies

     

  • Salt helps to kill bacteria and its anti-pathogenic effects assist with eradicating the viruses that are often responsible for colds and chest infections.

Eczema, Psoriasis and other skin conditions:

Salt's anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties help reduce the irritation caused by eczema/psoriasis, to lessen itching and irritation over time.

The anti-inflammatory effects of salt therapy help sooth the skin by reducing the inflammation and soreness over time.

By lowering IgE levels (immune system sensitivity), Salt Therapy is able to help build a natural defence against eczema/psoriasis and other similar skin conditions.
 

Reduce skin flare-up and dependency on steroid creams and antibiotics.
