5 Reasons to try Halotherapy
1. Its Safe and All Natural
We all know that feeling of calm and relaxation that comes from a long weekend by the sea. A 45 minute halotherapy session has been compared to the same respiratory and skin benefits that you get from a weekend at the beach!
2. It can help your skin look great
Salt has been used in the cosmetic industry for thousands of years. Cleopatra herself, famed for her beauty, used dead sea salt products! Salt is naturally anti-inflammatory. It can draw out excess moisture on your skin caused by skin irritations like acne, rashes, psoriasis and eczema.
3. It can help you breathe better
Because of salt's anti-inflammatory properties, it helps to open up respiratory airways. This can help relieve symptoms of a variety of respiratory conditions like Allergies, Asthma, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis, Emphysema, Sleep Apnea and Sinusitis by soothing inflammation or helping to expel excessive mucus. Athletes often notice an improvement in their stamina and performance, and singers can notice an increase in their lung capacity.
4. It can will help with stress
Although halotherapy is wonderful to help relieve symptoms of different illnesses, it is also a way to disconnect for an hour in the busy world we live in. You can use this time to read, meditate, or even take a much needed nap. Halotherapy is also known to help with symptoms of anxiety and depression. A study in 2014 claims "People do not have free time for rest and activities in clean air; moreover, stress is inseparable from everyday life, and for that reasons salt caves become places that help to support a proper lifestyle."
5. It will help your immune system
Salt is naturally anti-bacterial. There are very few microbes that can survive in a salty environment. Breathing in tiny salt crystals helps eradicate bacteria in your sinuses and in your throat. Use halotherapy as a wonderful post cold therapy to flush out those hard to expel coughs or jump in for a session after a long flight or shopping day to kill bacteria you may have picked up. Halotherapy is also a great way to rid yourself of toxins and pollutants you encounter throughout your day.
