It may surprise you to learn that salt therapy offers many health benefits. It’s a known natural, non- invasive treatment that helps open airways, relieves congestion and stimulates the body to expel mucus in the airways. Salt works like a decongestant, loosening congestion as well as providing natural anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine properties which help open and relax the airways. It’s also known to offer natural antiseptic, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
The therapy involves sitting and relaxing in our slightly warmed salt room and breathing in microscopic salt particles present in the air. As salt is inhaled it passes through the respiratory system and coats the airways in the nasal passage and lungs. The natural anti-inflammatory and anti-histamine properties of salt encourage smooth airway muscles to relax, which relieves wheezing and tightness. Salt Therapy can also help boost the immune system of the respiratory tract and hence increase lung capacity.
The 7 secrets.
Secret 1: Colds.
Its the time of the year that staff sickness is high, schools, hospitals etc are affected by having lots of colds and flu around. Salt Therapy is a natural and gentle non-invasive drug free therapy that offers relief of
cold and flu symptoms. It achieves this by exposing the respiratory system to microscopic
dry aerosol particles of salt inhaled directly into the lungs. Salt has natural anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory, anti- bacterial and anti-fungal properties all of which help relieve inflammation and congestion in the airways.
As dry salt is inhaled it passes through the airways breaking up or loosening congestion
improving breathing and helping the body to expel congestion and mucus.
When treating cold and flu, commence treatment early as possible for best results.
However if the cold has already developed our Salt Therapy treatments support the
body to expel excess congestion and reduce the duration of the illness. For those with
lingering coughs or stuffy noses Salt Therapy can clear residual effects.
Secret 2: Sinusitis
Salt Therapy is a natural gentle non-invasive drug free therapy that offers support for the
relief of sinus symptoms. The respiratory system is exposed to microscopic dry aerosol
particles of salt inhaled into the nasal passage and sinuses.
Salt has natural anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory, anti- bacterial and anti-fungal
properties all of which help relieve inflammation and congestion of the sinuses. As the
dry salt is inhaled it passes through the nasal passage breaking up or loosening
congestion. This breakdown and expulsion of excess mucus will dry up a sniffle or post
nasal drip sometimes present with sinus problems.
Salt Therapy also works well as a preventative treatment. We are constantly inhaling
pollutants and allergens all of which can irritate our sinuses. Breathing in salt as part of
ongoing health maintenance can help the body to heal faster and remove irritants
Secret 3: Skin Irritations.
Particles of dry salt that settle on the skin during a Salt Therapy session yield numerous
therapeutic and cosmetic benefits. Salt is also a known anti-inflammatory, reducing
redness and swelling, which makes it beneficial in treating certain skin conditions such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.
Secret 4: Stress Reduction
Salt Therapy offers one other important benefit – stress reduction. Skin conditions are
often exacerbated by stress. Our salt room provides a unique and peaceful atmosphere for clients to de-stress by promoting deep relaxation. Clients report feeling well rested following a therapy session. Salt Therapy is not a cure. It supports healthy lung function by helping to open and relieve inflammation and congestion throughout our airways. Discover the benefits of Salt Therapy for yourself at Cinergee.
Secret 5: Asthma.
Salt Therapy is a natural and non-invasive therapy that may relieve congestion, inflammation and allergies of the airways. Asthmatics sit in our room at Cinergee and inhale dry salt deep into their lungs. This helps reduce inflammation and fluid and loosens congestion for easy expulsion. The minute salt particles can also help to open up the airways and increase oxygen intake. Salt is also known to help cleanse the airways of smoke, dust, pollutants and other allergens to allow for easier and improved breathing.
Secret 6: Sleep and Snoring.
Salt Therapy is a natural non-invasive drug free therapy that offers support to snorers. As
dry salt is inhaled it passes along the back of the throat relaxing muscles that cause
narrowing and vibration of the airways which results in snoring. Over a period of time salt
will help to strengthen the respiratory system and help the airways to remain relaxed and
open. All for a better night’s sleep!
Secret 7: Sports Recovery
Winning is the result of having an edge. Salt Therapy can assist. The aim of Salt Therapy is
to improve and normalise breathing patterns. Stamina and endurance are maximised
with athletes finding that once they’ve corrected breathing patterns they have air in
reserve and hence perform at an optimal level.
