Close your eyes for a minute and visualize the Ocean. Take a deep breath. Are you there yet?
We know the Ocean has mystical healing powers due to the sea salt in the water and air. Salt has anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antifungal & antibacterial properties. You always feel refreshed, reset & rejuvenated after a beach vacation.
The holistic concept of Halotherapy is bringing the elements of that healing Ocean indoors in a dry environment. Halotherapy is the breathing of salty air. It is an alternative treatment that is deep-rooted in ancient healing practices and has been used since medieval times.
Halotherapy or dry salt therapy uses 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride from Pink Himalayan Salt that is crushed then heated by a device called a Halogenerator. The Halogenerator micronizes the sodium chloride. These microparticles of salt are dispersed into the Salt Vault during a typical 45 minute session.
As you relax, the microparticles are inhaled. The particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli to aid the respiratory system. The non-inhaled salt particles are absorbed by the skin, bringing the body to an ideal state for wellness due to an abundance of negative ions in the bloodstream.
Halotherapy is natural and safe and there are no dangerous side effects.
Halotherapy is specific to Himalayan Salt. At Salt Vault, we are loyal to Himalayan Pink Salt.
Himalayan salt is known as “white gold” by locals in the region, as it consists of 84 natural minerals and elements. Some of these minerals and elements in Himalayan Pink Salt are iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, chloride, and calcium, which are essential for human health. This salt gets a faint pink hue due to the presence of a small amount of iron oxide. It also has traces of copper, zinc, iodine, and selenium.
Benefit: Respiratory System Detox
Dry salt therapy is very beneficial for overall wellness. It helps by removing the toxicity from the respiratory system. We are exposed daily to pollutants, airborne diseases, bacteria, allergens and other irritants harmful to our bodies. Halotherapy is an alternative and natural way to cleanse and detox the lungs. It promotes whole body healing by increasing lung capacity and oxygen intake. People visiting Salt Vault on a regular basis may find relief from a variety of respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, COPD, cystic fibrosis, and more.
Benefit: Improved Immunity
Sodium chloride (NaCl) is naturally anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. Salt has properties which can help reduce inflammation. The salt absorbs foreign substances as it enters your respiratory tract and aids in the elimination of toxins. Your body naturally gets rid of the salt, eliminating the foreign materials as well. It’s a natural detox of your respiratory tract which in turn helps boost the immune system.
Benefit: Anti-Aging & Improved Skin
In a halo session, salt particles land on the the skin and absorb any bacterial and foreign substances. The increased activity of skin cells as they react to the salt enhances the electrophysiological activity that determines the skin’s protective properties. The salt pH balances the skin promoting both reparative and regenerative processes in our derma, as well as increases skin rigidity, stimulates cell rejuvenation, and improves hair health. The anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties of dry salt mentioned also help with absorbing impurities and improving acne, psoriasis, and eczema. By attending regular sessions to the salt room clients have noticed their conditions from acne to eczema have been minimized.
The anti-inflammatory properties of salt particles help air passages open and widened, and spasm of inflamed irritated tissue and smooth muscles are modulated resulting in restful breathing. When you breathe better, you sleep better. When you sleep better, it improves balanced hormone levels and you feel better all around. Salt contains negatively charged ions that leave you feeling invigorated, positive, and stress-free. These negative ions are also known to regulate and balance serotonin levels. With salt therapy normalizing serotonin levels, it levels out mood and improves sleep. The negative ions in the atmosphere of a salt cave have been proven to improve blood flow, reduce inflammation, improve breathing, and strengthen the heart. After a salt cave session, people report improved mood, enhanced mental performance, lower levels of stress, anxiety, depression and deeper levels of sleep at night.
