ABOUT DRY SALT THERAPY
Most people are familiar with ‘wet’ salt therapy. Whether you’ve put salt in a bath or have had a saline solution treatment or have used a Nettie pot to clear your nasal passages or gargled with salt water, wet salt has its benefits. Dry salt is different and the drier the salt the better. That is why Salt Haven's protocols include heating the salt prior to putting it into the salt chamber. Heat ensures that all moisture is evaporated so when it is crushed and grinded into micro particles and inhaled, the salt particles can do their best job. Salt levels affect our cell activity, energy and blood sugar levels. A natural disinfectant, salt is antimicrobial, and antibacterial. Salt comes in empty processed forms or healthier pure sea salt (Himalayan and Dead Sea salt) that contain 84 elements and trace elements found in the human body. Dry salt air is more powerful than moist air.
HOW IT WORKS
Dry pharmaceutical grade salt is heated and then it is grinded and crushed into very tiny micro-particles. These dry aerosol micro-particles of salt are then dispersed into the salt room during a typical session. As the person relaxes in the salt room the micro-particles are inhaled. The particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli. While inside the salt room, the non-inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin.
