Helping your loved ones to breathe easier, naturallyTue 22nd December 2020
For those that have never heard of it, salt therapy has actually been around for thousands of years.
Have you ever gargled with salt for a sore throat? Used bath salts to help ease aching muscles? Or perhaps you have used it in the form of a saline solution, as a nasal decongestant?
If you answered yes to any of these, then you have already practised salt therapy!
Halo (salt) therapy is the practice of pumping microparticles of salt into a climate-controlled room, which are then breathed deep into the respiratory tract and lungs.
The anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties of salt help to dissolve any bacteria and pollutants that are present.
Salt is also naturally anti-inflammatory and can also help to ease any inflammation of the airways which may have been triggered by asthma or another respiratory condition.
The following is taken from just 2 medical studies that have been undertaken:
From the Biomacromolecules journal, published April 2012 - ‘In their study, funded by the National Institutes of Health, the researchers found that salt has a strong effect on how effectively mucins block viral entry’.
From the ‘Clinical Research Respiratory Centre in Saint Petersburg’, where patients undertook 2 sessions a week over a
3 month period, it was reported that common cold cases were almost 4 times less and ‘symptom’ days were 5.6 times less compared with the control group.
So, if someone you know is suffering from a respiratory condition such as asthma or COPD, or is prone to coughs and colds, a salt therapy gift voucher would make the perfect gift.
With your first session half price, there are gift vouchers available, starting at just £14. Salt lamps and salt pipes are also on offer for those looking to practise salt therapy at home.
Open Monday, Thursday and Saturday throughout December; get in touch now to find out how you could give the gift of health this Christmas on 01482 679453.
