Salt Therapy (aka halotherapy) is the perfect treatment to help cold and flu sufferers relieve their symptoms and feel better in a safe, peaceful environment that feels more like a spa than a high-tech treatment facility. Prevention is key, which is why Salt therapy is so popular. Salt is naturally anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-microbial.
Salt therapy has been proven to help alleviate symptoms.
Clinical studies published in the New England Journal of Medicine (2006) observe: “Inhalation of hypertonic saline produces a sustained acceleration of mucus clearance and improved lung function. This treatment may protect the lung from insults that reduces mucus clearance and reduces lung disease”. The Journal of Aerosol Medicine (1995) reports tremendous improvements in patients suffering from various types of respiratory diseases (bronchial asthma, chronic obstructive and non-obstructive bronchitis, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis) who underwent treatment with halotherapy in a placebo-controlled clinical trial. The best remedy for cold and flu treatment and prevention is a blend of science and nature.
How treatment at The Salt Room works
Salt therapy simulates the natural microclimate found in salt caves and mines but has the added benefit of a highly controlled sodium chloride flow. Going in for this treatment is just like visiting the spa. You’ll relax in our salt room with soothing back-lit salt bricks and Himalayan salt floor. Dry sodium chloride aerosol containing particles of 1-5 um in size is produced and pushed into the room by a halogenerator. The halogenerator boasts of a microprocessor that monitors and maintains the temperature, relative humidity and mass concentration of aerosol in the room. For cold and flu treatment, the environment is saturated with dry sodium chloride aerosol at a mass concentration varying from 1-16 mg/m3 with a particle size of 1-5 um. Because of this high concentration the salt produces a sterile environment within the room.
Cold and flu symptoms we can help you with
The common cold usually lasts for 5-10 days. The patient suffering from common cold displays symptoms of runny nose, sneezing nasal and sinus blockage, headache and sore throat. Many people confuse flu with common cold. An attack of flu is much more severe than cold. Flu infects the airway tract in the nose and throat that can sometimes spread down into the lungs. It is caused by Type A and B virus. The flu season begins in late fall and continues during winter. A patient with the flu virus experiences symptoms like body aches, high fever, dry cough, red eyes, weakness, flushed skin and dry cough.
