It is not uncommon currently to see someone who is suffering from a chronic health condition. Sometimes these conditions can be a little bit annoying and then other times they can be completely debilitating. But whatever the case may be, there are certain conditions and symptoms that seem to fall through the cracks when it comes to modern medicine.  Commonly, when people visit a doctor for their condition, they are given some form of medication to manage their condition but there isn’t a more permanent solution. 

And while it is important for someone to manage their condition, there can often be side effects to medications and so many people out there are looking for an alternative or something that they can use side by side with their prescription. One example of this is when someone finds themselves suffering from chronic respiratory issues such as asthma and they only seem to experience so much benefit when using an inhaler. And so, this article will explore the potential benefits of Halotherapy, especially as it relates to respiratory conditions. 

What exactly is Halotherapy?

Halotherapy (sometimes also known as salt therapy) is where a natural salt cave is replicated, and people are required to sit in this controlled air medium for a certain period of time such as forty-five minutes. The idea behind this is that the air saturated with saline dust can be helpful when it comes to respiratory issues, skin conditions, allergies, and mental health. Furthermore, the salt particles are able to aid with irritating and moving mucus which can be helpful for those who dealing with asthma, sinus congestion, and/or chronic bronchitis. 

This can be extremely beneficial for those who are finding that their condition is getting in the way of their daily life, of exercise, or is even impacting their sleep. Here at Cryospa, we are sure to encourage these benefits by using a medical-grade saline solution to disperse salt-infused water molecules into the air, which may aid with reducing the number of cough attacks that participants may be experiencing as well as general wheeziness. On top of all of this, this kind of treatment can also be very therapeutic as people are able to sit in a non-allergenic environment while taking a much needed break from the outside world. 

What are some of the other potential benefits of halotherapy?

When it comes to this kind of treatment, most of the research that has been conducted surrounds respiratory issues. And while it is great that there has been so much interest in this area over the years, it is also important to note that there may be some other potential benefits when implementing halotherapy on a regular basis. For example, it is also suggested that the negatively charged ions in the room are able to aid with reducing stress as well as with promoting a good night’s rest. 

There are also many people out there who implement this service when they experience skin conditions such as chronic psoriasis, acne, eczema, dermatitis, rosacea, or hives. It is suggested that the salt particles in the air are able to help reduce unwanted bacteria on the skin which may be causing the issues as well as promoting cell rejuvenation which may even aid with reducing the signs of ageing. As it can clearly be seen, there are many different benefits that can be enjoyed when it comes to this kind of service and if you are looking to book your first appointment, please reach out to one of our friendly team members here at Cryospa to learn more.
