Dry Himalayan salt (halotherapy) is usually done in man-made salt rooms and (or spa “caves”) that are free of humidity. The temperature is cool, set to 68°F (20°C) or lower. Sessions last for about 30 to 45 minutes. A device called a halogenerator grinds salt into microscopic particles and releases them into the air of the room.
Most people are familiar with “wet salt”, putting it in a bath, adding as a saline solution to a neti pot to clear nasal passages, gargling with salt or going to the beach to enjoy the sea salt air, and those are great benefits for “wet salt”. However, dry salt is different, and the drier the salt the better. By heating the salt it ensures that all moisture is evaporated so when it is crushed and ground into microparticles that float in the spa’s room(or “cave”) and when inhaled, it acts in the very best way for healing benefits.
Healthy lungs and respiratory systems are vital for energy and longevity.
An average adult takes 12-15 breaths per minute and children 20-30 per minute. Since the main function of the lungs is to deliver oxygen to our red blood cells and get rid of the CO2 from the body, it is important we maintain a clean respiratory system. Everyone is exposed to pollutants, airborne diseases, bacteria and allergens on a daily basis. Haltotherapy cleanses and detoxes the lungs and invigorates the body with increased lung capacity and oxygen intake.
Regular halotherapy practice is a great way to aid breathing, lung conditions, and improve quality of life.
