Psoriasis Treatment with Salt Therapy
How Salt Therapy can help Psoriasis
Salt Therapy is a non invasive, gentle topical treatment that can reduce the inflammation and redness of skin. By exposing your skin during a Salt Therapy treatment, the microscopic dry aerosol particles of salt will land on the skin and can result in improvements in the skin’s protective properties and superficial bacteria flora (the good bacteria on our skin). The natural anti-histamine, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties found in salt help balance the pH levels and induce regenerative processes in the skin.
Not only is exposing your skin to the salt helping but also the inhalation of salt as it is relieving congestion and inflammation in the respiratory system. This increases the level of oxygen in the circulation system, which helps the skin’s subcutaneous layer.
Frequency is the key to your Salt Therapy success with psoriasis.
The best results from Salt Therapy for Psoriasis
are achieved with an intensive treatment to start. This may be twice or more times 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.
For faster results we pair this with all natural creams that we have sourced and tested to have very fast and effective results. These are available to test when you come in. Check out more information on our natural skincare products.
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 Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition where skin cells are growing at faster rate than they can be shed, causing excess skin to build up and form scaly patches on the body. It appears to be a buildup of dry skin on your body. It starts with the skin cracking just like a paper cut on your fingertips. This skin would begin to die, flake, peal and itch. As you scratch the area, it begins to get red, blister, flake and peel to raw skin – in severe cases it can crack and bleed.
There are different types of psoriasis:
- Inverse psoriasis occurs in the armpit, under the breast and in the skin folds around the groin, buttocks and genitals.
- Guttate psoriasis often affects children and young adults.
- Plaque psoriasis is the most common form. About 80% of people with psoriasis have plaque psoriasis. It can appear anywhere on the skin surface. The knees, elbows, scalp, trunk and nails are the most common locations.
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.
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…
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.
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.
