All About Salt Therapy
Why Salt Therapy?
Salt…it’s been around since the beginning of time.
In fact, it’s one of the essential ingredients of life. We use it every day – in cooking, to de-ice roads, and as a preservative. Salt has become a healer of sorts. It’s found in saline solutions, nebulizers, skin scrubs, bath salts, and Neti pots.
Our bodies need a good balance of salt to stay healthy.
Surprising Health Benefits of Salt Therapy
Thanks to technology, we’re now able to use salt as an innovative, natural alternative to improve a wide range of conditions:
- General wellness and resistance to illness
- Respiratory issues such as asthma, COPD, allergies, and cystic fibrosis
- Hay fever
- Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne
- Stress, anxiety, and fatigue
- Athletic performance
How Salt Therapy Started
Salt therapy originated in the 1800s in the salt mines and caves of Eastern Europe. Mine workers would chisel and grind the salt, creating micro-particles in the air. The air pressure, circulation, humidity, and temperature created ideal conditions below the earth’s surface. Salt miners were seeing improved health, relief from respiratory problems, and younger looking skin. Doctors attributed this to the dry salt dust they were breathing each day.
Why Salt is So Effective
Dry salt is highly absorbent. It’s good for you from the inside out. The anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties promote your skin’s “good” bacteria. The salt acts like a sponge to absorb impurities, regulates your skin’s pH level, reduces inflammation, and encourages natural exfoliation and regeneration.
When the fine dust is inhaled, the salt encourages mucus to thin and liquefy inside your body. This triggers the detoxification process to help your body get rid of pathogens, debris, and pollutants. Your air passages widen and the oxygen flow increases throughout your respiratory system. In other words, the salt turbo-charges your cilia to help superclean your airways. It’s a toothbrush for your lungs.
What to Expect at Your Visit
Not only does salt therapy have a long history of proven health benefits, but it’s also a terrific relaxation method. When you visit us at By the Sea Salt Therapy, you’ll feel like you’ve just stepped into a beachside boutique. Our hostess will show you to a quiet salt room where you’ll have your choice of comfortable beach seating. We’ll start up the halogenerator and you’ll be left to relax and enjoy the dry salty air.
Most of our guests wear comfortable yoga clothes or swimsuits during their session. We recommend that you leave your phone and other personal items in a complimentary locker. The therapy rooms are quiet rooms, so that means no talking or electronics during the session. You’ll truly disconnect while you listen to the soothing beach waves and breathe in the salty air.
Some guests come in small groups to enjoy the session together. In addition to health maintenance, salt therapy sessions are a relaxing getaway for bridal parties, a girls’ day out, or mother-daughter adventures.
