It’s autumn again in Indiana. For many of us, this means seasonal allergies, dry itchy skin, sinus inflammation, or other respiratory problems. One of the methods we use to assist our patients who suffer from allergies, asthma, or the eczema that often accompanies these issues is through Halotherapy.
Halotherapy, also called salt therapy, is a holistic method of treatment that reproduces the natural micro climate of a salt cave by dispersing a high concentration of a saline aerosol in a room. As patients sit in the salt room for 20 minutes and breathe deeply, the fine salt aerosol is transported to the smallest bronchi, or airway passages, in the lungs as well as to other parts of the respiratory tract such as the sinuses and nasal cavity. Additionally, the salt aerosol is helpful in treating chronic skin issues.
Which ailments can be treated by salt therapy?
- chronic bronchitis
- hay fever
- ear infections
- breathlessness, chest tightness
- pneumonia after acute stage
- cystic fibrosis
- smoker’s cough (including secondary smoke)
- frequent acute disorders of respiratory tract
- multi-chemical sensitivity syndrome
- sinusitis/sinus inflammation
- respiratory infections
- respiratory allergies to industrial and household pollutants
Our Halotherapy cabin is now open. Research has demonstrated that regular and consistent salt therapy sessions are most beneficial to ease respiratory symptoms. Medical studies in Europe have proven that the benefits of Halotherapy are accumulative. Many adults and children with asthma, allergies, cystic fibrosis, COPD and other respiratory conditions have found that Halotherapy sessions 2-3 times a week can help mange respiratory problems and reduce the intake of medications. Affordable packages are available for 6 and 12 salt therapy sessions.
