Active dry salt therapy is simple to understand.
There are three primary characteristics of pure sodium chloride, NaCl, known as salt:

  • Salt is super absorbent (especially when it is completely dry)
  • Salt is antibacterial
  • Salt is anti-inflammatory

This type of dry salt is placed into a halogenerator that then precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles and then disperses the salt aerosol into the air in a closed environment such as a room or chamber.

As the salt travels in the salt room, these salt particles of dry sodium chloride are inhaled into the respiratory system. The dry salt naturally starts absorbing any allergens, toxins and foreign substances into your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Dry salt may help to reduce inflammation and open airway passages. The micro-sized crystal structure of pure NaCl particles breaks loose and clears out all of the ‘bad stuff’. This is the basis for how dry salt therapy can impact people suffering from respiratory conditions like allergies, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, COPD and others.

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.
