Dry Salt Therapy or Halotherapy
(Halo is Greek for Salt)
Simply put, halotherapy is inhaling salty air.
Pure salt characteristics are:
1. Salt is super absorbent (especially when it is completely dry)
2. Salt is anti-bacterial
3. Salt is anti-inflammatory
How it works in the Respiratory System:
Pure dry salt is inhaled into the respiratory system. The dry salt naturally starts absorbing allergens, toxins and foreign substances into your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Dry salt may help to reduce inflammation and open airway passages. Pure dry salt particles break loose and clears out all of the ‘bad stuff’- allergens, pollutants, etc.
How it works with the skin:
Pure dry salt absorbs impurities and provides anti-bacterial properties that benefit the skin such as acne, psoriasis and eczema as well as regulates the skin’s micro-circulation. The smaller particles can reach beneath the skin’s surface and absorb moisture towards the skin. The larger salt particles land on the skin and absorb any bacterial and foreign substances. The dry salt accelerates cell rejuvenation and improves skin rigidity and a more youthful appearance.
