I saw a news segment the other day about Halotherapy, or Salt Therapy, that featured the Salt Chalet in Encino near Los Angeles.
I have an Ion Crystal Salt Pyramid above my desk so I understand the principles behind ionization. Adding negative ions into the atmosphere can purify the air in a room and help neutralize stress and improve concentration.
Halotherapy reproduces the conditions and benefits of salt caves by dispersing a saline aerosol inside a salt room, which has walls coated with salt from the Dead Sea.
Sessions last 45 minutes and provide relief from a whole host of respiratory problems such as asthma, bronchitis, allergies and even smoker’s cough. But salt therapy is also ideal for treating skin conditions like acne, eczema and psoriasis.
Salt is completely safe and has natural therapeutic qualities, which makes this a popular alternative to traditional medicine for children. The particles in salt are anti-bacterial in nature and dissolve bacteria and pollutants providing respiratory relief.
The Salt Chalet has a room for kids with books, DVDs, and a play area where they can interact with the salt.
Childhood asthma is a widespread problem that causes kids to miss or struggle in school. I read so many times in online forums about parents having difficulties getting IEPs and 504s for their children with asthma. While salt therapy won’t eliminate asthma completely, it can do wonders for minimizing the respiratory ailments associated with asthma and allergies.
Salt Therapy is a great health alternative for all ages, and the benefits of a drug-free, non-invasive treatment with zero side effects can’t be overstated. This treatment type won’t completely eradicate all ailments but it can reduce difficulties to restore a more healthy and productive lifestyle. After the recommended 1 to 20 initial sessions have provided relief, several single follow-ups throughout the year could maintain the proper balance.
Halotherapy, or Salt Terapy, has been used in Europe for years and is just now gaining traction in the United States. Hopefully we will see it flourish everywhere in the near future so that everybody will have access to its therapeutic qualities and reap the benefits of salt therapy.
