Sports Performance / Recovery treatment with Salt Therapy
Salt Therapy can dramatically enhance sports performance by improving lung function and increasing lung capacity and stamina.
At The Salt Spot, we understand that when you’re an athlete every advantage counts. The primary goal of every athlete is to achieve their maximum potential. One of the most important factors in attaining this is improving your breathing pattern.
The aim of Salt Therapy is to normalise the breathing pattern. When the body is working within its physiologically normal parameters it can work at an increased level of performance. Stamina and endurance are maximised. Athletes find that once they have corrected their breathing pattern, they can achieve better performance with less breath. This means athletes have more air in reserve and hence perform at an optimal level. When you want to win, you have to get that edge.
There are several known respiratory conditions that affect athletes. These include air flow obstruction, which leads to a reduction in performance; increased bronchial responsiveness; exposure to airborne allergens and other unwanted inhaled particles; and respiratory illnesses and conditions such as asthma, allergies and airway inflammation. Salt Therapy is a completely natural, drug-free solution to these issues.
Not only does it help increase lung capacity, it also aids in speeding up recovery between training sessions. The salt room is very relaxing and your body will deep rest whilst in there.
Salt Therapy is the latest trend in professional sports training. National teams in Eastern Europe regularly integrate Salt Therapy into their training regime. Teams spend a week at a time training in huge underground salt caves, such as the one in Poland, Romania and Ukraine which boasts a speleotherapy unit with an underground sport-field and basketball court/ football pitch.
Whilst Salt therapy is new in Australia already some of our prominent sporting teams are incorporating salt therapy into their training regime.
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.
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.
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…
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…
