Hay Fever

What is Hay Fever?

Hay fever is an allergic disorder characterized by an exaggerated immune response to pollen grains and other
substances. Also known as allergic rhinitis, there are two types: seasonal, which occurs only during the time of year
in which certain plants pollinate, and perennial, which occurs all year round.

(A related problem, nonallergic rhinitis, shares symptoms with hay fever but is not typically caused by proteins like hay
fever and allergies are.)Typically, if you suffer from hay fever in the spring, you’re probably allergic to tree pollens.
Grass and pollens may be causing your allergic reaction during the summer

How Salt Therapy can help Hay Fever & Allergies

Salt Therapy is a natural gentle, non invasive, drug free therapy that offers support to the relief of hay fever & allergy 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 through the nasal passages and down into the airways of the lungs. Salt has natural anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce symptoms and relieve inflammation and congestion in the airways. As the dry salt is breathed in, it passes through the airways, breaking up or loosening congestion, helping the body to expel any excess mucus and offering relief naturally from itchy eyes and nose, stuffy head and general symptoms that you can have with hay fever.
