Breathe Easy - The Surprising Benefits of Dry Salt Therapy

Asthma and Allergy Sufferers, You might want to read this!

What Is Dry Salt Therapy

Dry Salt therapy is one of two types of Halo therapies that involves breathing in medical-grade salt particles to remove pathogens and break up mucus that forms in your respiratory system.

The science was discovered in early 1800 Poland when salt minors noticed that they never caught colds, had no allergies, and maintained no lung infections.

Benefits of Dry Salt Therapy

Benefits of dry salt halo therapy include but are not limited to:

  • Mucoactive, clearing up mucus from your airways

  • Antibacterial, helping prevent infections

  • Anti-inflammatory

  • Immunity-boosting

  • Anti-allergic

  • Clears up autoimmune conditions such as psoriasis

Given this, you can use dry salt halo therapy to treat:

  • Lung infection

  • Throat infection or pharyngitis

  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)

  • Smoking-related breathing problems

  • Respiratory allergies

  • Asthma

  • Bronchitis

  • Cold or cough

  • Pneumonia

  • Sinusitis

  • Rhinitis

  • Tonsillitis

  • Cystic fibrosis

  • Acne and rosacea

  • Skin allergies

  • Rash

  • Eczema

  • Psoriasis

  • Dermatitis

  • Fungal infection such as onychomycosis

  • Wrinkles and signs of aging skin

Side effects of Dry Salt Therapy

Often, when you experience dry salt therapy you may cough or get a runny nose. Though it may be uncomfortable, it's a good sign that the salt is in action helping break up the trapped pathogens and mucus lodged in your lungs, (we got you covered with a tissue).

How a Dry Salt Therapy Session Works

As pictured above, our dry salt room includes two chambers (so you can bring a friend). It involves a small fan with salt in it that circulates the salt into and around the chamber so you can inhale the salt in a concentrated area. The concentrated area allows for less treatment time, though if you're closter phobic, we love to shout out our friends at Salt Remedy for a larger treatment space (though it involves a longer treatment time).
