Asthma Treatment with Salt Therapy

How Salt Therapy can help Asthma

Salt Therapy is a natural, gentle, non invasive, drug free therapy that offers to support the relief of asthma symptoms. By sitting in our specially designed salt room your respiratory system will be exposed to microscopic dry aerosol particles of salt that are inhaled into the lungs. Salt has natural anti-histamine, anti-inflammatory, anti- bacterial and anti-fungal properties which help relieve inflammation and congestion in the airways. As the dry salt is breathed in, it passes through the airways breaking up or loosening congestion and relieving the inflammation in the airways that causes the irritation and narrowing of the airways.  The salt allows you to breathe easier and helps the body to expel congestion and mucus.

Salt Therapy works well as a preventative treatment as we are constantly breathing in pollutants and allergens which can irritate lungs with asthma. When our lungs are weakened, it can have a significant effect on our health. The smallest cold can result in weeks of sickness. Breathing in salt as part of your ongoing maintenance can help the body to heal faster and remove irritants fast. Salt Therapy is not a cure, it is a support for your lungs to help open and relieve inflammation and congestion throughout your airways.

Recommended Treatment

Frequency is the key to your Salt Therapy success with asthma.

The best results from Salt Therapy for asthma are achieved with an intensive treatment to start; this may be 2-3 times or more per week depending on your severity. As your body responds to the treatment and your symptoms reduce, we start dropping down the intensity of the visits, with the goal to find what is the best ongoing maintenance program for your body. This will vary from person to person. Our salt therapist works with you one on one to devise a program that will suit you best and check in with you regularly to ensure we are providing the best supportive care.

The best value is our unlimited monthly pass when attending twice or more times per week. As your treatment intensity reduces, we recommend our session packages.

What is Asthma?

Salt Therapy is an effective treatment for Asthma

Asthma is a disease that affects the airways of the lungs. Asthma attacks are caused by an over sensitivity of the lungs and airways, which overreact to certain “triggers” and become inflamed and clogged.

An asthma attack occurs when the airways become inflamed, usually in response to a trigger, such as dust, mold, pets, exercise, smoking or cold weather. Triggers may inflame the airways to the lungs, allowing disease-fighting cells to accumulate and causing swelling in the lungs. The airways may become blocked or obstructed when the muscles surrounding the lungs tighten or go into spasm. Spasms keep air from circulating freely in the lungs. Mucus may also cause an asthma attack. Mucus may clog and narrow the airways in the lungs, making breathing even more difficult.
