The curative powers of “salt air” have been evident for thousands of years and are supported numerous modern research from around the world. We now have a clear understanding of why dry salt therapy has a natural positive impact on many facets of our health, including respiration and oxygen flow, skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis, tension & stress, and general wellness. A number of published studies in medical research journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine have addressed the benefits of dry salt therapy for cystic fibrosis, asthma, and COPD patients. The decongestant effect of salt therapy is also helpful for individuals with allergies, bronchitis and significant nasal, sinus and lung congestion.
HOW DOES SALT THERAPY WORK?
Small dry salt particles that have been dispersed in the air, often from a halogenerator, are inhaled into the respiratory system. The particles’ penetration into the lungs helps to break up mucus, toxins, foreign substances, and bacteria while opening airways to improved breathing. The dry salt air also has therapeutic value for a variety of skin conditions and is widely credited by many as means of reducing tension and stress. In the case of passive salt rooms and salt beds, salt recliners, and some salt booths, salt particles are naturally delivered by the introduction of a warming element, that releases the naturally occurring negative ions in salt.
