Who can benefit?

Salt therapy is suitable for everyone and can help with different respiratory and skin conditions as well as alleviate stress and promote general wellbeing and quality of life. If you have been taking medication and noticing little or no improvement in your symptoms, Salt therapy may assist you in finding some relief.

Salt Therapy is beneficial for:


Respiratory Conditions

Salt Therapy can help with a wide range of Respiratory conditions including Asthma, Sinusitis, Hay Fever, Bronchitis, Rhinitis, Coughs, Colds and Flus, Emphysema, COPD, Ear Infections, Bronchiectasis, Bronchiolitis and Cystic Fibrosis.

Dry salt aerosol has been shown to have bactericidal properties, cleansing microbial flora of the respiratory tract and increasing resistance to respiratory tract infections. Salt aerosol is a recognised decongestant, reduces inflammation resulting in a widening of the airways enabling the restoration the body’s mucociliary clearance of the bronchi and bronchioles, leading to rapid elimination of residual tar and foreign allergens.

Salt Therapy is clinically proven:

  • To clear mucus from the airways thus removing airflow obstruction
  • To enhance mucociliary clearance mechanism in both asthmatic and healthy subjects
  • To balance airway-surface liquid
  • To provide anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effects
  • To reduce bronchial hyperresponsiveness
  • To improve lung function
  • To help clear unwanted inhaled particles from the lungs

Respiratory conditions will begin to improve after just a few sessions. This clinically proven, complimentary therapy will also decrease coughing, wheezing, tightness in the chest and dependence on asthma inhalers and drugs.

Salt Therapy clients often find that they can reduce their dependence on certain medications and that their episodes are not as frequent or severe. However, you should always follow your doctor’s advice and your prescribed medication regimen.


Skin Disorders

Do you suffer from a skin disorder? Have you tried countless different ways over the years to treat and manage your symptoms with limited success?

At Salt Therapy NQ our salt rooms are beneficial for sufferers of skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema, acne, dermatitis. The salt relieves their symptoms and enhances overall health in a comfortable and relaxing environment.

Depositing on open skin areas, dry salt aerosol increases activity of skin ion channels, stimulating cell growth and regeneration. Dry salt particles balance skin pH and autoflora, as well as reducing harmful bacteria and inflammation. After a series of treatments, sufferers experience decreased itching, decreased or resolved scaling of the skin, and the drying and healing of small fissures, scratches and exudative symptoms.

The sterile environment and negative ions relax and modulate the nervous system, freeing the body from the stresses of external stimuli and initiating healing and rebalancing. Multiple studies in Russia have shown salt therapy to be effective in the relief of dermatitis symptoms, and of potential long term benefit as part of a total body approach to healing.


Children

Why not try this 100% natural method of healing with Salt Therapy before starting your children on long-term medication, where the hormone content of many drugs can cause serious and dangerous side-effects?

Long Term Health Improvements

Children are more prone to breathing problems because their respiratory system is not fully developed before the age of nine. Large airborne particles can reach their lungs because their bodies have difficulty filtering them out. The narrowness of nasal passageways in children and their higher risk of picking up viruses contributes to these frequent episodes. The good news is that clinical trials have shown that children react very quickly, effectively and intensively to salt room treatments.

As a result of Salt Therapy, inflammation and mast cell response within the bronchi reduces so the quality and function of breathing improves. This leads to the balancing of other bodily systems, due to increased oxygen availability.  Thanks to the desensitisation of the immune response, sleep patterns will improve and acute attacks and the need for medication will substantially decrease. This means the child will have more energy to play or exercise and become stronger and more resilient to every day infections.

Seperate Salt Rooms for Children

Children’s and adults’ needs are very different during Salt Therapy. While adults prefer a quiet environment with soothing music to relax, read or sleep, children are happy to watch cartoons and play with toys. To satisfy both needs our clinic has two dedicated salt rooms; one for children, one for adults. The Children’s Salt Room has a TV, plenty of toys and a travel cot. Children are free to play and do not even realise that they are having a treatment. Children also bring along their own DVDs – first in best dressed!

Children under 13 years of age must be accompanied by a paying adult. First child is free. Children above 13 years of age are allowed unsupervised in the Adult’s room.

Please note that Salt Therapy is recommended from the age of 6 months.


Stress Relief

A healthy and well balanced body has a natural ability to deal with reasonable stress and to regenerate physically and mentally during sleep. Internal and environmental challenges can affect the body’s ability to bring itself back into balance, creating a situation where stress and fatigue are constant and cumulative. Dry salt aerosol therapy isolates the individual in a stress-free environment that provides healing on a variety of levels while allowing the body to restore its natural healthy balance.

The negative charge and high surface energy of salt aerosol particles allows them to penetrate internal airways more deeply, bonding with positive ions and calming and relaxing internal muscles as the nervous system rebalances. The same action is simultaneously performed externally as charged particles coat the skin, reducing chronic hypersensitivity caused by environmental stresses and encouraging cellular regeneration. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties reduce the body’s toxic load, giving relief to an overburdened immune system and the release of toxins and inhaled particles is facilitated.

British researchers at the Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences in Liverpool exposed male subjects to negative ions and measured physiological responses, including body temperature, heart rate and respiration, while at rest and during exercise. Negative ions were found to significantly improve all physiological states, particularly during rest.

Several sessions of treatment in this supportive, calming environment will reinforce the body’s natural inclination toward a healthy balanced state, and enhance its ability to achieve it independently.


Pregnant Women

Salt therapy is a great choice for women who do not want to rely heavily on over-the-counter or prescribed medication for sinusitis, asthma, allergies, and other respiratory illnesses. Our Salt Therapy sessions provide relief for their congestion and chronic respiratory problems.

SIn addition, the ionized salt particles will help boost their immune system.


Athletes

The primary goal of every athlete is to achieve their absolute, maximum potential.

One of the most important determinants of whether this is possible is an optimum breathing pattern and lung capacity. Attention to the recovery of the airways is crucial. Incorporating Salt Therapy into your training program can improve your performance whilst providing a boost to your overall health and wellbeing.

An often unwanted side effect of hours upon hours of endurance based training is a suppressed immune system. Have you ever trained for weeks in the lead up to an endurance event only to be struck down with a cold days before your event? At the peak of your physical performance it can be the most frustrating thing an athlete can encounter.

Salt therapy is a 100% natural method which can be used to enhance your immune system. Salt has natural anti-bacterial properties and Salt Therapy helps clear the airways of unwanted inhaled pathogens whilst improving overall lung function.

Salt Therapy has been shown to improve lung function in healthy people by:

  • Clearing mucus from the airways and restoring the function of the lung’s clearance mechanism, the Cilia
  • Providing anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effects on the entire respiratory tract
  • Clearing inhaled pollutants and particles from the airways
  • Reducing sensitivity to common allergy triggers
