Salt therapy, also known as Halotherapy, is a type of natural therapy that involves inhaling dry salt particles in a controlled environment, such as a salt room. It is believed that halotherapy can have a number of health benefits, including:
Improved respiratory function
The use of salt therapy can reduce inflammation and mucus in the respiratory system, making it easier to breathe.
Improved skin health
Salt therapy can help to improve skin conditions. By reducing inflammation and exfoliating dead skin cells, it treats acne, eczema, and dermatitis.
Stress and anxiety reduction
Salt therapy can help to reduce stress and anxiety by promoting relaxation and reducing muscle tension.
Salt therapy can help to improve sleep quality by reducing stress and promoting relaxation.
Boosted immune system
Salt therapy can help to boost the immune system by increasing the production of antibodies and reducing inflammation.
Improved cardiovascular health
Salt therapy can help to improve cardiovascular health by reducing blood pressure and improving circulation.
Salt therapy can help to reduce inflammation throughout the body. Conditions such as arthritis and fibromyalgia can be relieved with this treatment.
How often should you get Salt therapy?
The frequency of halotherapy, also known as salt therapy, sessions will depend on the specific condition being treated and the individual’s needs and preferences. In general, it is recommended to start with a series of daily or every-other-day sessions and then gradually decrease the frequency as symptoms improve. Salt therapy sessions may only be needed once or twice a week for some people, while others may need to continue more frequently.
It’s important to note that the benefits of halotherapy are still being studied, and more research is needed to fully understand how it may be able to improve health. It’s always a good idea to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new therapy or treatment, and to follow their recommendations for the frequency and duration of halotherapy sessions. They will be able to provide guidance based on your specific health needs and goals.
What should I wear to a salt therapy session?
Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, involves sitting or reclining in a controlled environment. Wearing loose, comfortable clothing to a salt therapy session is generally recommended since it allows you to move freely. It may be cooler in the salt therapy room than you are used to, so bring a sweater or blanket if you tend to get cold.
Before the session, you should remove any jewelry or watches from your body. If you have long hair, you may want to tie it back to keep it out of your face during the session.
It is important that you wear clothing that allows you to be comfortable and relaxed during the session. Please contact our staff at Lapis & Oak Spa and Salt Lounge if you have any questions or concerns about what to wear.
What should I do after a Salt therapy session?
After a salt therapy session, it is generally recommended to drink plenty of water to help flush any excess salt out of the body.
Don’t do any strenuous activity or expose yourself to harsh environments after salt therapy, such as pollution or tobacco smoke.
This can help to preserve the benefits of the therapy and allow the body to fully relax and recover.
It’s always a good idea to consult the therapist where you received salt therapy if you have specific concerns or questions. Depending on your personal circumstances and needs, they will be able to provide guidance.
