What is salt therapy?

Salt therapy has been a natural healing treatment for over 100 years and is a particularly

excellent choice of natural, gentle, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties, drug-free treatment for people who suffer from allergies and respiratory issues.

This form of treatment promotes improved breathing, better sleeping abilities, healthier skin, less inflammation and toxicity and a stronger immune system.

Where does the salt come from?

Salt therapy uses micro-particles of pharmaceutical-grade salt that have been placed inside a machine called a halogenerator. The halogenerator grinds the pharmaceutical-grade salt into minuscule particles, which are then dispersed throughout the treatment room.

How does salt therapy work?

The salt clears congestion, aids blocked airways, increases the amount of oxygen intake and can rid the body of the harmful effects of dust and city pollution. Additionally, it’s great for issues stemming from smoking and other common allergens. The tiny particles of salt are also able to permeate the skin, which aids in restoring a person’s body to a less toxic state, as well as providing an effective reduction in inflammation throughout.

Who can benefit from salt therapy?

People from any age with any form of respiratory or skin ailments as well as those in good health can benefit from salt therapy even if you want to just have a relaxing treatment with positive effects on your well-being or strengthen your immune system salt therapy can help.

Why is salt therapy effective?

Salt is super absorbent and has 4 natural key elements. Salt is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, an antihistamine, and an anti-inflammatory. The anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and antihistamine properties help your sinuses and airways and the anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties help with inflamed skin and eczema.

What can I expect after my salt therapy treatments?

Initially with cold or flu symptoms you may find that you have an increase in coughing and blowing your nose, this is your bodies way of expelling the accumulated mucus and phlegm. As you expel the mucus and phlegm your symptoms of coughing, inflammation and shortness of breath should improve. With skin conditions you can expect to see a reduction in your redness and itching.

How long is a session?

At Your Body Hub salt therapy sessions run for 45 minutes for adults and between 15 and 30 minutes for children depending on their age and symptoms.

Is salt therapy safe for children?

Is salt therapy safe during pregnancy?

You can do salt therapy if you are pregnant however we still encourage you to consult your doctor even though salt therapy is a natural treatment.

 

How many sessions do I need?

This depends on your condition and the severity of your symptoms. For cold and flu symptoms we recommend a more rapid response by attending a minimum 2-3 times a week until symptoms subside and for chronic respiratory symptoms and dermatological conditions, we recommended 2-3 sessions a week for at least a month initially and then considering maintenance options.

What do I bring to my session?

It is encouraged that you bring a bottle of water with you. Inhaling the salt can sometimes induce coughing so it’s a good idea to have a bottle of water close by. We have toys available for children and a range of magazines for adults.

Can I bring my phone?

We recommend that electronic devices are not taken into the salt rooms due to the very fine particles of salt in the air.

At Your Body Hub we do not have salt on the walls or floor, it is for aesthetic purposes only. We have a machine called a halo generator in the wall that disperses salt particles into the air.

What do I wear to my session?

You can wear whatever you feel comfortable wearing within the salt room. If you have a private session and are using salt therapy for eczema you may just wish to wear a singlet and shorts or bathers.
