So maybe you’ve listened to your favorite celebrities rave about these “salt cave treatments” or perhaps your bestie suggested you two go to one for a spa day. But just what is a salt cave treatment anyway? What’s so great about them? Well, keep reading and you’ll find out exactly why you need one!
Salt Cave Treatments: What are they?
Some have likened these treatments to a concentrated visit to the beach with all the benefits in only a fraction of the time. These caves are essentially manmade replicas of natural salt mines for clients to relax in as they inhale tiny, naturally healthy salt particles that are known to provide numerous respiratory, skin, and health benefits.
Why would anyone want to create replicas of salt mines?
While you might only be learning about these salt treatments just now, the treatment itself has been around for over a hundred years since a Polish doctor by the name of Dr. Felix Boczkowski first recognized the positive effects salt had on his patients who happened to work in the salt mines.
Salt rooms like ours at Organic Elements Spa make it more comfortable and more convenient than ever for you to receive all of these benefits through halotherapy, a treatment that involves breathing salty air where the negatively charged ions in the salt particles improve your health and mood.
Seem too good to be true? Not so! Let’s take a look at what benefits there are to be had by these specialized treatments.
What can salt do for you?
Salt can be absorbed through the skin where its anti-inflammatory properties can be beneficial for those who suffer from eczema, psoriasis, and acne. Its antibacterial qualities help kill harmful bacteria and microorganisms while restoring balance to your skin.
The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits also extend to better breathing. Halotherapy helps soothe those with breathing issues like asthma and allergies and has been known to help fight bacterial infections like sinusitis and bronchitis.
Many clients also boast of the fact that they don’t feel under the weather even during flu season. Salt’s anti-inflammatory properties help reduce swelling, effectively opening up the sinus passageways and lungs to make it easier to breathe.
We live busy lives so we can’t always eat as nutritiously as we’d like so it’s easy for our bodies to become deficient in nutrients and minerals. This can lead to health problems, vitamin deficiencies, and in general, a lower quality of life.
Salt is essential to life and the salt in our rooms can contain up to 84 different trace minerals and vitamins to help revitalize you, some of which include potassium, magnesium, chromium, copper, and selenium.
Salt is a natural element in nature and vital to our wellbeing. So if you are feeling a bit under the weather or even if you want to prevent yourself from feeling so, a trip to our salt rooms is guaranteed to rejuvenate you so grab a friend and book a session with us today!
