How Salt Therapy can help Cold & Flu

Salt Therapy is a natural gentle, non invasive, drug free therapy that offers support to the relief of cold & flu symptoms. By sitting in our specially designed salt room, your respiratory system will be exposed to microscopic dry aerosol particles of salt that are inhaled into the lungs. Salt has natural anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties which help relieve inflammation and congestion in the airways. As the dry salt is breathed in, it passes through the airways breaking up or loosening excess congestion.

The salt allows you to breathe easier and helps the body to expel congestion and mucus. The earlier you come in, the better. When you first feel a cold coming on it can at times clear the cold fast without little symptoms. However, if the cold has already developed, we can support the body to expel the excess congestion and speed up the duration. For those with lingering coughs or stuffy noses still after a cold has gone, Salt Therapy can clear the residue and clear any lasting effects you may still be feeling.
