Cold & Flu Treatment with Salt Therapy
How Salt Therapy can help Colds & Flu
Salt Therapy is a natural gentle, non invasive, drug free therapy that offers support to the relief of cold & flu 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 excess congestion. The salt allows you to breathe easier and helps the body to expel congestion and mucus.
The earlier you come in, the better. When you first feel a cold coming on it can at times clear the cold fast without little symptoms. However, if the cold has already developed, we can support the body to expel the excess congestion and speed up the duration. For those with lingering coughs or stuffy noses still after a cold has gone, Salt Therapy can clear the residue and clear any lasting effects you may still be feeling.
Intensity is the key to your Salt Therapy success with a cold or flu.
The best results from Salt Therapy for colds & flu are achieved with an intensive treatment. We highly recommend Salt Therapy 3 times within a week as this will help expel the congestion and mucus from your chest and nasal area. The following week we recommend twice, because usually the infection would have cleared and the chest will be clearer. A final treatment in the third week will make sure you have cleared any lingering congestion and will help reduce any lingering cough. 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.
Salt Therapy is a non medical, complementary treatment which has no side effects when used with your medication. Salt Therapy is not a cure; it is a complementary treatment that can relieve symptoms of colds & flu.

What is a cold or flu?
The common cold is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract. Symptoms include coughing, sore throat, runny nose, sneezing and muscle fatigue which usually resolve in seven to ten days, with some symptoms lasting up to three weeks.
No cure for the common cold exists, but the symptoms can be treated. It is the most frequent infectious disease in humans with the average adult getting two to three colds a year and the average child getting between six and twelve.
Influenza, commonly known as “the flu” is also a viral infection of the respiratory tract. The most common symptoms are chills, fever, runny nose, sore throat, muscle pains, headache (often severe), coughing, weakness/fatigue and general discomfort.
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.
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…
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.
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.
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.
