The Salt Chamber
Salt has also been utilized in various therapeutic, healing and medicinal ways including saline solutions, nebulizers, skin scrubs, salt baths, Nettie pots, etc...mostly known as "wet" salt therapy. In our modern society, thanks to technological innovations, another aspect of salt therapy has emerged where the main health benefit comes from the salt's quality to absorb moisture. It is called Dry Salt Therapy and is also known as Halotherapy.
How Dry Salt Therapy Works
THE 3 FUNDAMENTALS OF DRY SALT THERAPY
During a Salt Therapy Session
Dry Salt Therapy acts to cleanse the respiratory system and the skin, which helps to relieve congestion, and skin conditions. Sessions are noninvasive.
Once you enter the SALT Booth, you can sit and relax. You can choose to listing to relaxing music, read a book or magazine, meditate, or simply rest. You will fine pure relaxation and tranquility away from your everyday stress, leaving you rejuvenated and fully energized. (Cell phones, electronics, and jewelry are usually not permitted since salt can be corrosive.)
The salt, 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride, is heated and then ground and crushed into very tiny microparticles. These dry aerosol microparticles of salt are then dispersed into the SALT Booth where they are inhaled and penetrated deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. The non inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin and are absorbed.
When your session is over, you may notice a faint trace of salt on your lips and the slight taste of salt on your tongue. Any salt that collects on your clothing can be easily brushed off. A runny nose or increase in coughing means your body is clearing out mucus and toxins.
