HALOTHERAPY ALSO KNOWN AS DRY SALT THERAPY IS 100% NATURAL, DRUG-FREE AND NON-INVASIVE.

Salt Therapy is based on the principle of prolonged exposure to the microclimate found in the natural salt mines or salt caves. At Saltastic, this is possible because of our medically certified halogenerator that precisely grinds heated pharmaceutical grade salt (pure sodium chloride)into micro-sized particles that are then dispersed into the air in a closed environment, our salt rooms. Dry Salt Therapy promotes better respiratory function, healthier skin, detoxification, sounder sleep, enhanced physical performance/endurance and overall wellness.

Salt is a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, which assists in reducing inflammation of the respiratory system, clearing skin conditions and strengthen the immune system.

Attending salt therapy sessions regularly may help manage symptoms of chronic conditions, such as asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, snoring/sleep apnea, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, dermatitis, acne and eczema.  Dry salt therapy may also be used seasonally as a preventative measure against allergies, viruses, bronchitis, ear infections, sinus infections and common cold and flu.  If you do not have any medical concerns, you may still benefit from salt therapy.  It is very beneficial for relaxation, pain and stress management, anxiety, depression, postpartum depression, jet lag, migraines, smoker’s cough and general wellness.

How does it work?

1

Salt Therapy relies on a basic mineral, pure sodium chloride, commonly known as salt, to stimulate the body’s internal processes for cleansing the respiratory tract and strengthening lung function. Through exposure to negatively ionized micro-sized particles (particle size from 1 micron to a sub-micron level of 0.3 microns) in a carefully controlled environment, people simply inhale and exhale to improve their breathing.

After completion of your client intake form, you will be able to make your way to our locker room to secure your belongings and then enter our salt room. You will relax in comfortable zero gravity chairs with dim lighting and relaxation music. A blanket and pillow are also provided for your comfort. Each session lasts 45 minutes and starts precisely on the hour.  You will leave the salt room refreshed, rejuvenated and reenergized.   You may notice a slight taste of salt on your tongue.  Salt on your clothing is easily brushed off.

After your salt therapy session, your symptoms may be alleviated and easier to manage.  Open airways, increased lung capacity, and improved mental wellness are all possible.  Some people even report that they feel an improvement in their breathing after just one session in the salt room but as with any natural healing remedy, the effects are cumulative and the benefits you feel should increase and last longer with every session.

BENEFITS OF DRY SALT THERAPY

Dry salt is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and absorbent.  Salt therapy benefits people of all ages and is great for the respiratory and immune systems, skin conditions, and overall wellness.

IMMUNE SYSTEM

Reduces excessive mucus, strengthens immune system, fights pathogens to prevent spreading of viruses and build-up resistance.

RESPIRATORY TRACT

As you breathe the dry microscopic salt particles deep into your lungs, they line the walls of your airways, helping to kill bacteria and viruses, and aiding in the clearing of mucus.  This process reduces inflammation in the entire respiratory tract, allowing you to breathe easier.  The salt is working as a “bronchial toothbrush” for the airways.

SKIN CONDITIONS

Salt is not only cleansing, it is purifying as it helps to remove the oils and bacteria that cause skin irritation and skin conditions. The salt particles that are circulating throughout the air act as an exfoliant and promote reparative and regenerative process, as well as slows aging process.

GENERAL WELLNESS

Relaxes the body, reduces headaches, alleviates stress, increases energy, improves mood, promotes a better night’s sleep.

Respiratory

Salt therapy is a 100% natural alternative to effectively manage your symptoms from respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, COPD, emphysema, smoker’s cough and cystic fibrosis.  As you breathe the dry microscopic salt particles deep into your lungs, they line the walls of your airways, helping to kill bacteria and viruses, and aiding in the clearing of mucus.  This process reduces inflammation in the entire respiratory tract, allowing you to breathe easier.  The salt is working as a “bronchial toothbrush” for the airways.

Following a regimen of regular salt therapy visits will provide ongoing clearing of mucus and toxins and thus cleaner, healthier lungs. Your oxygen intake will also improve over time. Results may vary between clients but we are here to work with you and suggest what membership works best for you.

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be less dependent on your inhaler?  To be able to take deep breaths and feel less tired and wheezy? Are you looking to quit smoking?  You can achieve this, and we invite you to learn more by visiting our salt lounge.

Sinus

Salt Therapy is a 100% natural alternative that helps manage your symptoms from allergies, sinusitis and ear infections. Although you cannot “cure” allergies, you can treat them and lessen their symptoms with salt therapy. As you breathe in the dry microscopic salt particles, they penetrate the sinus cavity to reduce swelling and inflammation, helping to take the stuffiness away.

Your nasal passages will begin to open naturally, without the use of nasal sprays and decongestants. Mucus then clears out and sinus pressure is relieved.  Not only are you helping with your symptoms, the salt is working to help fight the infection and prevent it from coming back.

Salt Therapy is also known to help with ear infections.  The salt works its way into the ear canal, relieving pain and pressure.  The pressure and discomfort is why children prone to ear infections often fuss or cry. Blocked ears or sinuses are sometimes the cause of vertigo.

Following a regimen of regular salt therapy visits will provide ongoing safe and natural relief in addition to boosting our immune system and keeping our bodies healthy.  Results may vary between clients and we will guide you towards the best membership to help fight your condition.

Skin

Salt Therapy is a 100% natural alternative to help manage skin conditions such as Eczema, Psoriasis, Acne and Dermatitis. Unfortunately, most medications used for these skin conditions provide short term relief and can have harmful side effects. Salt therapy works to provide immediate relief in addition to keeping your skin clear for long periods of time.

Salt is not only cleansing, it is purifying as it helps to remove the oils and bacteria that cause skin irritation and skin conditions. The salt particles that are circulating throughout the air act as an exfoliant and promote healthy oil production in the skin.

The anti-inflammatory properties of salt help to reduce the redness and inflammation associated with skin conditions. As you breathe in the salt particles, it works to strengthen our overall health from the inside out which contributes to an overall positive effect on your health and skin.

Following a regimen of regular salt therapy visits will provide ongoing clearing of the skin.  Results may vary between clients and we will be happy to discuss your best options with you.

Fitness

Salt therapy can dramatically enhance sports performance by improving lung function and increasing lung capacity.  Doesn’t every athlete strive to get better every day?  One of the key factors in achieving that is to improve breathing patterns.  Many respiratory conditions that obstruct air flow such as allergies and asthma can have a negative impact on an athlete’s performance.  Improving lung function, increasing oxygen capacity and clearer airways is what enhances our body to run faster, increase stamina and increase energy levels.

Sitting in our salt room after a strenuous workout session helps ease potential muscle and tendon strain so your body recovers to its peak fitness levels in as little time as possible. The antiviral and antibacterial properties of salt therapy can help protect vulnerable immune systems, and act as both a preventative and recovery measure. Salt therapy can also improve sleep quality and has a relaxing effect on the nervous system, accelerating recovery.

Stress, Sleep + Anxiety

Salt Therapy can have a naturally relaxing effect on our body which helps reduce stress, anxiety, SAD (seasonal effective disorder) and improve sleep.

Our salt rooms at Saltastic isolate the individual in a stress-free environment that provides healing on a variety of levels while allowing the body to reassert its natural healthy balance. The negative charge and high surface energy of dry salt particles empowers them to penetrate internal airways more deeply, bonding with positive ions and calming and relaxing internal muscles as the nervous system rebalances. The same action is simultaneously performed externally as charged particles coat the skin, reducing chronic hypersensitivity caused by the environment stresses and encouraging cellular regeneration. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties reduce the body’s toxic load, giving relief to an overburdened immune system and the release debris and inhales particles is facilitated. Multiples sessions of treatment in this supportive environment reinforce the organism’s natural inclination toward a healthy balanced state, and enhance its ability to achieve it independently.

So, what is a negative charge? What are ions? Ions are colorless, odorless, molecules that are believed to produce a biochemical reaction. Ions can be positively or negatively charged. Positive ions are found to be emitted by computers, televisions and other electronic devices. They create an atmosphere of enhanced anxiety. Negative ions appear in nature more readily than positive ions. Negative ions are found in moving water, such as waterfall, rivers and the ocean. Plants are also a good source of negative ions.

During your salt session, you will be surrounded by negative ions. Negative ions boost serotonin or “feel good” chemicals in your brain. Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to your brain too, which in turn, creates higher alertness, relieves stress and enhances mental energy.

Studies have shown that stress suppresses your immune system, making it difficult to heal and feel better.

Overall Wellness

Salt Therapy is a 100% natural way to stay healthy. Are you always getting sick?  Do you find yourself run down needing more energy?  By visiting our salt rooms at least once a week you can help improve your overall wellness.  When stress levels are high or when we do not give time for ourselves our bodies shut down. Self-care is the fondation of a healthy body. As you breathe in the dry microscopic particles you are forming a protective layer inside your sinus and respiratory system to starve off illness and infection.

When our bodies come into contact with germs the protective layer of salt works to kill bacteria keeping that infection from growing worse.  Our customers say that by coming to one salt session per week keeps them healthy and lessens the symptoms when they do get sick.

It is always important to remember that when we relax we heal.  Our bodies need time to recover to perform at optimum levels.  Consistency is key with salt therapy.
