Sinusitis Treatment with Salt Therapy
How Salt Therapy can help Sinusitis
Salt Therapy is a natural gentle, non invasive, drug free therapy that offers support to the relief of sinus 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 nasal and sinus area. Salt has natural anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce symptoms and relieve inflammation and congestion in the sinus area. As the dry salt is breathed in, it passes through the nasal airways breaking up or loosening congestion, helping the body to expel any excess mucus or dry up the sniffle and post nasal drip that can be present with some sinus issues.
Salt Therapy works well as a preventative treatment as we are constantly breathing in pollutants and allergens which can irritate the sinus. 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.
Acute Sinusitis – usually follows a cold or viral infection and is shorter in length
Intensity is the key to your Salt Therapy success with acute sinusitis.
The best results from Salt Therapy for acute sinusitis are achieved with an intensive treatment. The earlier you come in, the better, even when you first feel a cold coming on. However, if the infection has gone to your sinus and become sinusitis, we can still help and speed up recovery. We highly recommend Salt Therapy 3 times within a week. This will help expel the congestion and mucus sitting on your sinuses. The following week we recommend twice, because usually the infection would have cleared and the sinuses 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 runny nose. 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.
Ongoing Sinusitis – ongoing inflammation and congestion
Frequency is the key to your Salt Therapy success with ongoing sinusitis.
The best results from Salt Therapy for more ongoing sinus congestion are achieved with an intensive treatment to start to loosen up the congestion. This may be twice or more times per week depending on your severity. We then start reducing the visits in the salt room as your body responds to the treatment; this then will drop down to an ongoing maintenance program. 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 Sinusitis?
Sinusitis is the inflammation of the mucous membrane in the nose. The swelling of the openings in which fluid (mucus) drains into the nose becomes blocked. When mucus cannot drain properly, the pressure of the blocked fluid inside the sinuses can be painful.
Sinusitis feels much like a head cold, with a stuffy nose, facial pain or a constant dull pressure feeling. This pain is typically localised to the involved sinus and may worsen when the affected person bends over or when lying down. Pain often starts on one side of the head and progresses to both sides.
Acute Rhinosinusitis — a new infection that may last up to four weeks and can be subdivided symptomatically into severe and non-severe
Recurrent Acute Rhinosinusitis — four or more separate episodes of acute sinusitis that occur within one year
Subacute Rhinosinusitis — an infection that lasts between four and 12 weeks and represents a transition between acute and chronic infection
Chronic Rhinosinusitis — when the signs and symptoms last for more than 12 weeks
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…
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…
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.
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.
