Salt therapy is not just for adults. Children may benefit from it too.
With all the colds, flu, and various other ailments that are being passed around, salt therapy is the perfect holistic solution for recovering from an illness or staying healthy. It is great for people of all ages.
Halotherapy, or dry salt therapy, involves grinding pure pharmaceutical salt up to the size of red blood cells and dispersing it into the air. You should not see the salt since it is finely ground. Some people may taste it but some do not.
The particle size allows the salt to be breathed deep into the lungs where the true magic occurs. The salt is antimicrobial so whether you are sick because of a virus, bacteria, or even mold or fungus, the salt will counter any of that and support your immune system to get rid of the offending agent.
And the beauty of this therapy is all you have to do is to sit back, relax, and chill out. Many people choose to meditate, read, journal, or even sleep during their session.
Many of us have experienced the healing power of salt when we were sick and told to gargle with salt water or have rinsed our sinus cavities with saline infused water from a Neti pot. (Not a fun experience.) Sitting in a salt room is more effective than these treatments without the mess or the discomfort.
Just Breathe accepts children 3 months and up. Please, give us a call to schedule a Family Session if you have anyone if you are bringing anyone under the age of 16.
