Halotherapy is also called dry salt therapy. It is a less common (and less understood) therapy method but has starting to attract people’s attention recently.
In this therapy, small particles of salt are dispersed into the air, which lets people breathe these particles in. The best examples of halotherapy nowadays are the salt lamp, salt bed, and salt room.
What are the benefits of halotherapy?
Believe it or not but salt, especially the Himalayan Salt, has natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It works as a super absorber that gets rid of microorganisms that trigger inflammation and allergic responses.
Boost Mood and Energy
Have you ever wondered why some spas put a Himalayan Salt in their massage rooms?
This is because Halotherapy or salt therapy is known to be effective in boosting a person’s mood just like when using an infrared sauna. It eases the level of stress, thus bringing your body to a state of complete peace and relaxation.
Because of today’s fast-paced lifestyle, indulging in halotherapy once in a while can help you regain your energy and be more productive at work.
Improve Skin Conditions
Studies on halotherapy in improving one’s skin condition are mostly based on individual experiences. This means that different people claimed to have different levels of skin improvement.
But almost all data agree that salt therapy has enhanced their skin’s water balance since it attracts moisture to the skin. This provides great relief to those who have psoriasis, eczema, rashes, and acne since dehydration can worsen these skin conditions.
This benefit is connected to boosting one’s mood and energy. If your mood is in good condition, then chances of experiencing anxiety are lessened.
Have you had that feeling when you are near nature, you feel invigorated, relaxed and at peace? This is because your inner frequency is in tune with nature’s frequency around you. And that is exactly what you will get after several sessions of halotherapy.
Provide Relief to Many Respiratory Conditions
One notable benefit of halotherapy is its ability to relieve respiratory issues such as asthma.
How is this possible?
Salt therapy involves breathing salty air, which is actually used in ancient times to cure asthma and allergies. It is said that breathing in these tiny salt particles helps open up the airways and prevents the build-up of mucus, thus allowing you to breathe properly.
Although salt rooms are becoming more popular these days because of its various benefits, health experts still advice that people with respiratory conditions won’t succumb to completely cutting off their medication.
To get best results, continue your medication as the doctor prescribes while pairing it up with halotherapy to relieve the symptoms brought by asthma, bronchitis, etc.
Halotherapy in Spas
Salt therapy is quite rare in other countries and some don’t even know this type of therapy method exists. But with halotherapy’s wide range of health and mental benefits, it won’t be long until it becomes mainstream in the spa industry.
Overall, we think halotherapy is a great relaxation therapy to try if you want to improve your health and well-being holistically. If a local home sauna or spa near you offer this service, we highly recommend you try it out.
