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.
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.

Salt Therapy is a non medical, complementary treatment which has no side effects when used with your normal medication. Including Salt Therapy as part of your management plan, you may notice a reduction in medication needed. However, please consult your doctor before changing your medication. Salt Therapy is not a cure; it is a complementary treatment that can relieve symptoms of asthma.

Treatment for Asthma
My son is 4 and was on ventolin 2- 3 times daily for asthma. After our 3rd visit, we stopped using the ventolin as his breathing improved dramatically (very noticeable at night when he is sleeping). Now he hardly needs ventolin, only when he has a cold which has been rare. We now visit the salt spot once a week for maintenance.
It’s been 4 months now and I am so happy that my son rarely uses ventolin. I would highly recommend The Salt Spot Neutral Bay.
I would like to say that since I have been going to Salt Therapy (about 7 months) my health issues have done a 180 degree turn-around. My asthma has improved to the extent that I have not needed to use Ventolin. My breathing has improved enormously. It is true, it is like having your lungs scrubbed clean. I feel lighter in myself as I can breathe properly after all these years. Thank you Penny for bringing this into my life and for being such a warm knowledgeable lady.
My Kids Love the Salt Room
My two-year old has a history of chronic ear and sinus infections. Last year his symptoms were terrible and resulted in numerous courses of antibiotics. This year we have been able to treat the symptoms more effectively through salt therapy at The Salt Spot. Both my boys love it and it’s now a regular part of our weekly routine. Penny has set up the ‘cave’ so it’s family friendly with an area for the kids to play.
I often come in alone as well for a dose of relaxat…
A Flue-free Winter
By nature I am a sceptic and am very careful what I do, I have found the Salt Spot, energising and uplifting and without hesitation if I was unwell with the flu or a virus I would do another 12 weeks course at the Salt Spot. I have for the first time I can remember had a flu free winter, and I attribute this to the Salt Spot. I would without hesitation recommend the Salt Spot to improve health and well being.
Cleared my Sinusitis
I was suffering with chronic sinusitis I went to the Salt Spot and within a couple of days could feel the improvement in my breathing and clearing of my head. I was having sleepless nights, breathing difficulties and generally a feeling of unwell I had been feeling like this for about 8 weeks. Within a couple of visits to the Salt Spot my head and sinuses had cleared and I now have a feeling of well being and calmness. Penny is a pleasant friendly person who makes me fee…
The Spot to Destress
When I visit I use the time to meditate I find it a perfect environment. I look forward to my visits, as I always feel like I have been on a holiday or to the beach. The Salt room is calm and peaceful. I was under a lot of stress in my life and my time at the salt spot has reduced my anxiety greatly.
