Active dry salt therapy is simple to understand. There are three primary characteristics of pure sodium chloride, NaCl, known as salt:
The Sea Salt we use is a purest grade Sodium Chloride, also known as “Medical grade” salt. Pure Sodium Chloride comes from a natural source but is stripped of all its impurities and contains no binding or caking agents. It is the safest and cleanest salt to use for respiratory and skin conditions. We place this salt into a halogenerator that then precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles.
Then halogenerator disperses the salt aerosol into the air in a closed environment such as a room or chamber. These salt particles are inhaled into the respiratory system and start absorbing any allergens, toxins, and foreign substances into your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Their micro-sized crystal structure breaks loose and clears out all of the ‘bad stuff’.
Dry salt therapy can impact people suffering from respiratory conditions like allergies, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, COPD, and others. The dry salt may help to open airway passage, reduce inflammation, benefit your sports performance, and provide general body detox.
Since dry Salt Therapy is 100% natural and drug-free, there are no negative side effects. After the session, you may experience a slight cough or runny nose during the next couple hours – this is because the salt is in your system and doing its work -absorbing mucus, killing bacteria and viruses in the lungs and airways.
Salt particles purify the air, reduce physical ailments for adults, children, and athletes. When your lungs are clear- you feel better, you sleep better, which leads to having more energy and moving around more. Which leads to some of the “unintentional” loss. We recommend helping keep the body healthy during flu or allergy seasons (come in before the “flu season” to strengthen your immune system). Skin conditions can also be improved with salt therapy (psoriasis, rashes, eczema, and acne).
The environment is the same in all of them and will benefit the respiratory system equally, only the duration of the sessions is different. The Booth sessions are 10-15 minutes and Salt room sessions are 30-45 minutes.
At TheSaltBox the sessions are PRIVATE, lasts 15 minutes and is just as effective as a 30-minute salt room session. An appointment must be made beforehand. We provide soft ocean sound or relaxing music for you to listen to during the session. To fully experience the benefit of Halotherapy – we strongly recommend closing your eyes and taking slow deep breaths.
With salt therapy, you are inhaling a dry salt particles which only enters your respiratory system, not your digestion tract. The salt particles are so fine that even if you were to eat that amount it would not increase your blood pressure.
