HOW HALO-THERAPY WORKS *1
Dry pharmaceutical grade salt is heated and then it is ground and crushed into very tiny micro-particles. These dry aerosol micro-particles of salt are then dispersed into the salt booth during a typical session. As the person relaxes in the salt booth, the micro-particles are inhaled. The particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. While inside the salt booth, the non-inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin.
THE BENEFITS OF SALT THERAPY (HALO-THERAPY) *2
Halo-therapy benefits adults and children alike, as well as athletes and animals. It is natural and safe and there are no side effects. A majority of people who visit salt rooms on a regular basis may find relief from a variety of respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, common cold, bronchitis, COPD, cystic fibrosis, and more. Dry salt therapy is great for people who also have particular skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, and recovering from cosmetic surgery.
However, one does not need to have any conditions since dry salt therapy is very beneficial for overall general wellness by removing the toxicity from the respiratory system. People are exposed on a daily basis to pollutants, airborne diseases, bacteria, allergens and other irritating and harmful factors. Halo-therapy is an excellent way to cleanse and detox the lungs as well as invigorate the whole body with increased lung capacity and oxygen intake.
For general respiratory hygiene, once or twice a week visiting your local salt therapy facility will enhance the lung capacity, boost the immune system, reduce stress, and aid better sleep.
More chronic and acute respiratory conditions require increased frequency and consistency of the sessions. Experiencing salt therapy three to seven times a week for a period of 14 to 21 days will help to manage the symptoms and provide relief over time.
Halo-therapy is recognized as a safe and effective wellness practice for preventive and restorative health care. It is not a medical treatment and does not offer a cure! Halo-therapy is not recommended for people with contagious diseases, fever, open wounds, cancer, severe hypertension, mental disorders, and active tuberculosis.
Pregnant women should consult with their doctor before using halo-therapy. Anyone with serious health concerns needs to seek proper medical advice and care. There are many clinical studies and research, along with testimonials from customers, as to the health benefits and efficacy of salt therapy.
Many countries around the world have varying ways they govern and regulate their citizen’s health-related matters. In some countries, Halo-therapy is covered by their Government’s Health Care system or insurance companies.
