Halotherapy, or dry salt therapy is a natural way to support respiratory and skin hygiene, as well as promote relaxation, revitalisation and general wellbeing.
The Salt House utilises a specialised and medically approved device known as a Halo Generator, to grind pure New Zealand pharmaceutical grade sea salt into microscopic particles that are dispersed throughout the salt room.
While you sit back and relax in the lounge chairs, this incredible technology is constantly checking the microclimate parameters to keep the salt room at the recommended salt saturation levels. The dry salt aerosol environment is agile and fast responsive to various factors such as individual respiratory volumes, current temperature, humidity, air pressure and velocity.
Halotherapy is a complementary therapy that is intended to be used alongside conventional treatment, and does not replace standard medical practices. Results may vary between clients and we recommend you discuss the use of Halotherapy with your Doctor.
Halotherapy promotes mucociliary clearance of the Respiratory System. It works as a gentle brush to clean airways and lungs of mucus, allergens, pollutants and other debris. This gentle respiratory hygiene can assist the body with Allergies and Hay Fever; Asthma and Bronchitis; Colds and Flu Symptoms; Ear Cleansing; Sinusitis; Snoring and Sleeping Problems.
When the minute salt aerosol particles enter the respiratory system, they gently stimulate the body’s natural action of cilia movement. This promotes expectoration of mucus from the lungs, sinuses and wax from the ear canal. Halotherapy utilises the inhalation of minute salt particles that can absorb oedema from swollen mucosa linings in the sinus and respiratory tract and open up airways.
Sodium chloride aerosol delivered via the controlled Halo Generator, can change the consistency of mucus, making it thinner, less sticky and easier for the body to expel. Combined with its potential to stimulate cilia movement, sodium chloride is an important contributor to airway clearance.
The effects of skin hygiene has been associated with reduced inflammation and a reduction in the recurrence of infection. Conditions such as Acne, Eczema and Psoriasis can be relieved with the support of Halotherapy.
The fine salt particles resemble fog and when this makes contact with your skin, it may assist to improve skin health and relieve the symptoms of certain skin conditions. The fine salt particles are absorbent, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial; creating exfoliation, breaking down scaly skin and assists with the sloughing process of dead skin.
If you’re treating a skin condition, we recommend to start gently and expose a small area of skin in the first session. This is to gauge how the salt particles feel on your skin during the session and to check for any reactions afterwards. From there we can tailor the salt session to suit your individual sensitivity
