The micro-particles of salt have a beneficial influence to the integument system (skin protective layer) and hairs providing healing and cosmetic effects. This increases activity of skin cell ion channels and activates electrophysiological activity that determines the skin’s protective properties. The salt provides Ph normalization and induces reparative and regenerative processes in derma, increases skin rigidity, stimulates growth and improves hair health. The dry salt impacts the skin microcirculation and assists cellular membrane activity used in dermatology and cosmetology and enhances their effectiveness.
The inhaled salt provided from salt therapy has bactericide, mucokinetic, hydrophilic and anti-inflammatory properties. This results in reduced inflammation in the entire respiratory tract, widening of the airway passages, accelerated transport of mucus, elimination of residual tar and foreign allergens, and an improved immune system. The dry salt acts like a sponge, cleaning and removing the build-up of foreign elements that cause various respiratory ailments and conditions.
Today, more and more people are suffering from respiratory issues. Whether the source is pollution, airborne diseases, or pollens and toxins, our society has never before been faced with such a growing epidemic of respiratory ailments.
Salt Therapy also improves various skin conditions. Salt Therapy has been researched and proven to be a safe alternative and compliment to other treatments to produce sustainable results.
Pure dry salt is heated and ground into a very tiny micro-particle. These dry aerosolized micro-particles of salt are then dispersed into the salt therapy rooms during a typical session. As the person relaxes in the salt therapy room, the micro-particles are inhaled. The particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. The non-inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin.
Ions are atoms or molecules that take on an electrical charge. In today’s modern and technological world we have too many positive ions and not enough negative ions. Air conditioning, forced-air heat, chemicals and even winds, rob the air of negative ions and put too many positive ions into the air. Heated salt crystals naturally create negative particles, so S.A.L.T. Chambers can have high concentrations of negative particles. Over 40 years of research shows that treatment of negative ions can dramatically increase energy, mental alertness, reduce stress and provide an enhanced overall sense of well-being.
