HOW DOES IT WORK?
There are three primary characteristics of pure sodium chloride (pharmaceutical salt), NaCl, known as salt: Salt is super absorbent (especially when it is completely dry), salt is anti-bacterial and salt is anti-inflammatory.
The dry salt is placed into a halogenerator that precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles. During your session, the salt aerosol is dispersed into the air while you simply breathe and relax.
As the salt travels in the salt room, these salt micro-particles of dry sodium chloride are inhaled into the respiratory system. Because everything in our respiratory system is moist, any pathogen that comes in contact with the salt becomes neutralized and absorbed, salt is also water soluble so your body can now dispose of the pathogens through your waste system. This is why we encourage clients to drink some extra water after their session. Dry salt helps 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, sinus infections and more.
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 bacterial and foreign substances. The dry salt accelerates cell rejuvenation and improves skin rigidity.
