Halotherapy: Salt Has Many Benefits
Everyone who breathes, young and old, can benefit from regular halotherapy, the inhalation of dry salt particles that is well recognized as a safe, natural and complementary form of health care throughout Western and Eastern Europe. The therapy is growing significantly in the U.S. and helps with respiratory issues and skin conditions, enhances athletic performance, boosts the immune system and improves an overall sense of well-being.
Kinetically activated microsized dry salt particles are inhaled deep into the respiratory system. Those tiny salt particles absorb excess moisture, remove allergens, toxins and foreign substances, break up and loosen stagnated mucus, restore the function of cilia and widen the airways. Large particles settle on the top of the skin and help fight against bacteria, reduce topical inflammation as well as tighten the skin and improve skins micro-circulation.
Benefits are proven to be accumulative. Many adults and children with asthma, allergies, COPD, cystic fibroses and other respiratory conditions have found that halotherapy sessions two to three times a week combined with yoga practice or any other fitness routine, provides deep relaxation and stress relief, a balanced nervous system and an improved sense of well-being. It keeps the lungs and the skin clean, boosts oxygen circulation, energizes the whole body and enhances mental alertness.
