Pulmonary Fibrosis Treatment with Salt Therapy
How Salt Therapy can help Pulmonary Fibrosis
Salt Therapy is a natural non invasive, drug free therapy that offers relief for pulmonary fibrosis sufferers. The inhalation of dry microscopic particles of salt that are breathed in whilst sitting and relaxing in our specially designed salt room assist the respiratory system to reduce inflammation, open the airways and clear excess congestion and mucus. The naturally found anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory properties of salt help to relieve inflammation in the airways and loosen mucus. The natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties help remove any pollutants or allergens that we are constantly breathing in from our environment, which can cause irritation in the lungs and a persistent cough.
Salt Therapy works well as a preventative treatment as we are constantly breathing in pollutants and allergens which can irritate the lungs with Cystic Fibrosis. 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 pulmonary fibrosis.
The best Salt Therapy results for Pulmonary Fibrosis are achieved by including it as part of your lung maintenance program. Depending on the severity of your CF and the other treatments that you are working with, once a week is often a good maintenance for most people. If you catch a cold or feel run down, add in a couple of extra treatments to help keep your lungs as clear as possible from infection. As your body responds to the treatment, you will find the salt will last longer in 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.

What is Pulmonary Fibrosis?
Pulmonary Fibrosis is scaring of the lungs; more specifically it is scarring in the air sacs (alveoli). As the scar tissue builds up in the air sacs, it becomes harder for the oxygen to be transferred into the blood.
Symptoms of pulmonary fibrosis include:
- Shortness of breath
- Chronic dry hacking cough
- Discomfort in chest
- Loss of appetite
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.
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.
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…
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.
