Have you ever been told to visit the seaside, as “the sea air will do you good”?
The reason is that sea air is full of salt, which has incredible healing properties, one of which is its natural anti-inflammatory effect.
The anti-inflammatory effect of salt comes from its ability to draw fluid.
Sea air is already moist and has less of an anti-inflammatory effect; this is where salt therapy comes into play.
Salt therapy is a medically tried and tested natural therapy that has proven to help reduce congestion and inflammation of the airways and skin.
When you inhale dry salt aerosol in a salt room, the minute particles line your airways and draw out the fluid from the inflamed area. This fluid, now mixed with salt, continues to work on cleaning the airways, thereby clearing the congestion.
The healing nature of salt therapy stems from the healing properties of negative ions, formed as a result of the breakdown of sodium.
Salt rooms are therefore full of these wonderfully beneficial negative ions as the salt is broken down.
Salt has a naturally relaxing effect on the body which helps stimulate sleep. Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, salt helps to open up the airways and nasal passages, allowing for an increased oxygen intake and helping the body to relax.
By promoting abundant oxygen levels in the blood, negative ions help normalize brain function, resulting in relaxation, increased calm and better sleep.
Salt therapy helps relieve congestion, inflammation and allergies of the airways. When dry salt is breathed deeply into the lungs, it lines the walls of the airways and draws out any inflammation or fluid and loosens congestion for easy expulsion.
The minute salt particles also help to open up the airways and increase oxygen intake. Salt can also help cleanse the airways of smoke, dust, pollutants and other allergens to allow for easier and improved breathing.
Salt therapy also offers relief for sinus conditions such as sinusitis. When inhaled through the nose, salt coats the inner lining of the sinuses and helps relieve inflammation, congestion, pressure and allergies.

The therapists we had were great.
The treatments were great and the boys catered to our needs and were very professional but also laid back and made both myself and my partner very comfortable.
