What is Dry Salt Therapy?

Dry Salt Therapy is a method of inhalation occurring in an enclosed environment saturated with a salt aerosol and inhaled by patients in strictly specified concentration. Dry Salt Therapy services are relatively new but already verified business branch. It may be associated with biological regeneration and health-supporting services in the field of recreational-spa tourism. Dry Salt Therapy services are medical services which contribute to the general improvement of the psychophysical condition of people. In accordance to this fact promotion of the healthy lifestyle is becoming a question of utmost importance nowadays. Many years’ experience of pulmonologists indicates that salt cures and alleviates many human ailments, giving psychological and physical comfort every single day.

Modern dry salt therapy has its origins from the salt mines and caves in Europe and Russia. As the workers were mining the salt (through chiseling, grinding and hammering at the salt), micro-sized salt particles were being disbursed into the air. Additionally, there were ideal conditions below the Earth’s surface where air pressure and circulation and humidity and temperature affected the quality of the environment. In this environment, miners were receiving many natural health benefits by breathing in the salt particles. Considering that mining jobs were usually recognized as dangerous to life and health, salt miners seemed to thrive on good health. They rarely had any respiratory issues and also looked younger due to great skin appearance.

The properties of dry salt also absorb impurities and provide anti-bacterial properties that benefit the skin such as acne, psoriasis and eczema as well as regulates the skin’s micro-circulation. The smaller particles can reach beneath the skin’s surface and absorb moisture towards the skin. The larger salt particles land on the skin and absorb any bacteria and foreign substances. The dry salt accelerates cell rejuvenation and improves skin rigidity.

The climate conditions in a dry salt room must maintain a certain temperature and humidity levels and proper ventilation to ensure the efficacy of the salt therapy and provide a ‘clean-air’ environment for the consumer.

Mined Salts Contain These Elements:

Iron

Prevents anemia, eliminates drowsiness and increases resistance to infections

Calcium

Prevents conditions in the bone and joint system

Magnesium

Protects against metabolic disorders, hypercholesterolemia and oxalosis (gallstones and kidney stones), reduces excitability

Copper

Eliminates metabolic disorders and is conducive for better assimilation of iron

Manganese

Reduces toxic properties of many harmful compounds in daily life

Zinc

Prevents prostate diseases and growth disorders

Selenium

Sweeps free radicals and protects against cancerous illnesses by neutralizing the harmful effects of mercury, lead and cadmium present in polluted air, and delays the body aging processes

Lithium

Prevents sclerosis and heart diseases and even, to some extent, diabetes

Iodine

Prevents thyroid diseases.

How and Why it works?

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.
