When you heat salt, it becomes super dry and kinetically more active. This heated and dry pure sodium chloride is then crushed into micro-sized particles and dispersed into the air in an environment where people are inhaling the fresh salt air. When micro-particles of dry salt is inhaled into the respiratory system, it does its job by absorbing and removing all the allergens, toxins and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Salt also reduces any inflammation and opens airway passages.

Understanding Dry Salt Therapy

Why Salt Therapy?

Today more and more people are suffering from respiratory issues.  From pollution and smog to airborne diseases, pollens and toxins never before has our society been faced with a growing epidemic of respiratory ailments.  Salt Therapy also enhances and impacts various skin conditions. Salt Therapy has been researched over the past few decades and even centuries in history has proven to be a safe alternative and compliments other treatments to produce sustainable results.

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 S.A.LT. Chamber, Inc’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 ground into microparticles and inhaled, the salt particles can do their best job.

How does it work?

Dry pharmaceutical grade salt is heated and then it is ground and crushed into very tiny micro-particles.  These dry aerosol micro-particles of salt are then dispersed into the S.A.L.T. Chamber during a typical session.  As the person relaxes in the S.A.L.T. Chamber the micro-particles are inhaled.  The particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli.  While inside the S.A.L.T. Chamber, the non-inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin.

Why it works? (Lungs)

The inhaled salt has bactericide, mucokinetic, hydrophilic and anti-inflammatory properties, which 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. Dry salt is super absorbent and acts like a sponge attracting foreign substance along its path through the respiratory tract.  The dry salt acts like a toothbrush and cleans through the respiratory system removing the build-up of foreign elements that cause various respiratory ailments and conditions.

Dry salt therapy benefits people with various respiratory conditions including:

  • - Allergies & Hay Fever
  • - Asthma
  • - Bronchitis
  • - Bronchial infections
  • - Cold & Flu
  • - COPD
  • - Cystic Fibrosis
  • - Emphysema
  • - Pneumonia
  • - Rhinitis
  • - Sinus infections
  • - Sinusitis
  • - Smokers Cough
  • - Snoring
  • - Stress & Fatigue
  • - Wheezing

Why it Works? (Skin)

The micro-particles of salt have a beneficial influence on the integument system (skin protective layer) and hairs providing healing and cosmetic effects.  This increased activity of skin cell ion channels and activates electrophysiological activity that determines the skins 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.

Dry salt therapy benefits people with various skin conditions:

  • - Psoriasis
  • - Eczema
  • - Dermatitis
  • - Acne
  • - Rosacea
  • - Ear infections
  • - Itching
  • - Swelling & inflammation
  • - Dry & Flaky Skin
  • - Rashes
  • - Skin aging

Why it Works? (Overall Wellness)

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.

Given how dry salt therapy works, it also:

  • - Can expand the airways for increased oxygen flow and capacity to enhance athletic performance and endurance
  • - Enable better recovery time from physical activity and stress
  • - Accelerate recovery from common colds and the flu
  • - Revitalize jet lag
  • - Slow the aging process
  • - Detoxification
  • - Rehabilitation
  • - Reduce headaches
  • - Reduce depression
Salt Bed and Salt Room Differences

What is the difference between a salt room and salt bed?

The benefits are the same in each environment, with the duration being different.  Salt room sessions last 45 minutes while salt bed sessions last 30 minutes.  Those wishing to experience salt therapy for the skin benefits would benefit more in a salt bed due to the level of privacy, which allows one to disrobe.

The salt room will only affect the skin areas that are exposed and not covered by clothing, but both environments will benefit the respiratory system equally.  With the S.A.L.T. Bed, the unit is set at a much higher output rate.

A Salt bed looks similar to a tanning bed except the walls are made mostly of Plexiglas.  Salt Beds offer a private setting where you can choose to disrobe to expose & treat your skin as well.  Salt Bed’s offer the addition of chromo-therapy as well as a heated double bottom for Himalayan salt crystals that provide additional negative ions and particles to enhance the salt therapy experience and benefits.  When the session begins we strongly recommend closing your eyes and taking slow deep breaths through your nose and mouth individually.

Many people use Salt Therapy treatments as a preventative measure to avoid the common cold, and other respiratory &  ENT viruses/infections. It is highly recommended to do sessions during cold and flu seasons, as well as during the times those affected by seasonal allergies tend to have a reaction.

If your goal is to improve your sports performance and endurance; the more you come, the better you’ll feel.

If your goal is to achieve relaxation, to de-stress and/or increase your overall mood and wellness you may visit as frequently as desired.

For mild conditions such as colds, flu symptoms, ear infections, or other temporary ENT or lung discomforts; additional and more frequent sessions may prove to be very effective.

For chronic respiratory and dermatological conditions such as Cystic Fibrosis, Asthma, Allergies, Psoriasis, etc you may find more than once a week on an ongoing basis to help alleviate or reduce symptoms works best for you.
