Never before has our society been faced with a growing epidemic of respiratory ailments. More people are suffering from respiratory issues from pollen, pollution, to airborne diseases.
Halotherapy studies have shown it to be an alternative modality for respiratory and skin conditions.
Halotherapy uses dry pharmaceutical grade salt ground into very tiny microparticles. These dry aerosol microparticles of salt are then dispersed into the salt room during a typical session. As the person relaxes in the salt room, the microparticles are inhaled, penetrating into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. While also falling onto the exposed skin.
Have you ever wondered why spending time near the salt water oceans helps you breathe better, makes your skin glow, and makes you feel rejuvenated?
Cleansing the Respiratory System– Breathing in dry salt particles helps clear your respiratory tract. The salt particles attract moisture, which helps unblock the airways and helps you breathe easier!
Improving Lung Function- Inhaling dry salt particles also helps to reduce inflammation in the airways, which means higher oxygen intake, increased energy and an improved immune system! 20 to 30 minutes in the salt room can help alleviate seasonal allergy symptoms, asthma, and other respiratory issues – the session literally helps you breathe better.
Skin: Salt increases the activity of skill cell ion channels and activates electrophysiological activity that determines the skin’s protective qualities. This means the the dry salt particles distributed by our halo generator helps your skin regenerate and heal itself faster.
Mind: It’s no secret that there is a lot going on for many of us right now. Now, more than ever, we need to take time for ourselves to check in, love ourselves, and just shut everything else out. What better way to do that, while simultaneously supporting your respiratory and immune system, than spending 30 minutes in a beautiful room, surrounded by pink Himalayan salt? This time is for you – you can pray, meditate, or even fall asleep.
