Salt therapy, also called Halotherapy, has overall health benefits and can help you breathe better. Salt cave, salt grotto, salt room, salt chamber, salt cavern…, all provide health benefits of salt therapy!
Halotherapy contributes to the general improvement of the physical health and well-being of the respiratory systems. The goal of salt therapy is to aid in the promotion of a healthy lifestyle.
Halotherapy is 100% natural, safe and drug-free, providing effective long-term relief. It can be used as a complementary treatment to prescribed medications or as a sole treatment.* When Halotherapy is used as a complementary treatment, it can increase the effectiveness of prescribed medications, and decrease the amount prescribed.
HISTORY OF SALT THERAPY
Salt therapy has been used for therapeutic purposes for centuries. The first mentions of spa resorts in Poland (Wieliczka Salt Mine) are found in records dating from the twelfth century. Salt therapy has been rediscovered as a non-invasive treatment without side effects.
SPECIAL SALTS USED FOR TREATMENTS
Salt Therapy Grotto in Naples was built with tens of tons of salt from twelve places around the world. The base is Himalayan salt and salt from Poland. Other salts come from Jordan (Dead Sea), Morocco, France, Peru, India, Cyprus, Portugal, Hawaii, Japan and England. Our salts are also used in ion lamps during the salt therapy session.
HOW IT WORKS
A halogenerator is used to crush pharmaceutical grade salt into micronized particles that are dispersed through the air in the salt room. Salt molecules are comprised of a positive sodium ion and a negative chloride ion. While you breathe in the salty air of the therapy room, salt molecules enter the moist airways of the lungs and break down, releasing the negative ions.
The negative ions stimulate airway linings, improving mucous clearance and improving immune response to pathogens. People with chronic respiratory conditions lack sodium chloride in their airway linings and salt therapy helps resolve this deficiency. It alleviates symptoms, helps prevent them from reoccurring, and reduce dependence on medications like nasal sprays and inhalers.
The airborne salt that works on airways also clears up a variety of skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema. Furthermore, the release of negative ions can have a beneficial effect on your mood.
Studies suggest that the release of negative ions (what you experience when you step outside into fresh air) during salt therapy reduces stress, headlines, lethargy and depression, and improves energy and mental acuity while stabilizing mood and sleep patterns. Salt therapy provides the best results when you take it regularly. A single treatment lasts about 45-50 minutes. You simply sit in the halochamber and inhale microscopic particles of salt.
Clinical studies show that it is an effective natural treatment for allergies, asthma, sinusitis and other respiratory condition.
LIGHT THERAPY ALSO AVAILABLE
In addition to the salt therapy treatment used in the two salt caves for adults and children, Salt Therapy Grotto offers a state-of-the-art, full spectrum, infrared sauna room providing heliotherapy, or light therapy, which is associated with the treatment of skin disorders, chiefly psoriasis, acne vulgaris, eczema and neonatal jaundice. Infrared Saunas also provide benefits of detoxification, relaxation, pain relief, weight loss, improved circulation, and skin purification.
CHILDREN SALT CAVE – HEALTHY AND FUN
Children are commonly affected by respiratory and skin conditions. It is well documented that children respond rapidly and more intensively than adults to most forms of therapy and this is also the case with Salt Therapy. The benefit of Salt Therapy is that it is 100% drug free and natural, which is ideal for anyone, especially children.
The children’s salt cave is completely covered with Himalayan and Polish salt. The salt session provides fun and playful activities for children, all while breathing in the finest pharmaceutical grade salt available today. Respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, allergies, colds and flus are on the rise for children like never before. Skin conditions such as eczema, acne and psoriasis have also been on the rise for children in the last 50 years. Salt therapy is a wonderful alternative natural heath option for children that are wrestling with these issues.
