Salt Therapy Booth FAQ
What is Salt Therapy?
Also known as Halotherapy, Salt Therapy is a dry salt therapy that utilizes a halogenerator to grind and crush salt into micronized particles that are dispersed into the SALT Booth® via a dry salt aerosol that works to aid respiratory concerns and skin conditions.
How does it work?
A halogenerator heats and then grinds 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride into very tiny microparticles. These dry aerosol microparticles of salt are then dispersed into the SALT Booth® where they are inhaled and penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi bronchioles and alveoli. The non-inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin and are absorbed.
Dry salt acts like a sponge attracting foreign substances along its path through the respiratory tract. It cleans the respiratory system by removing the build-up of foreign elements that cause various respiratory ailments and conditions.
Isn’t salt bad for you?
While consuming a high salt diet is linked to increased blood pressure, a dry salt therapy uses extremely fine particles that enter the respiratory system directly, and in smaller quantities.
How is a Salt Booth different from a Salt Room?
Since cubic airspace is smaller in a SALT Booth® as opposed to a a Salt Room, there is a higher concentration level of salt, and only 10-minute sessions are needed to experience the full effect of Dry Salt Therapy.
What can Salt Therapy treat?
Inhaled dry salt particles may help to reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen the airway passages. A Clean respiratory system naturally results in high oxygen intake, increased energy, and an improved immune system. In addition, they act as an anti-bacterial agent, dissolving bacteria and pollutants lodged in the respiratory tract. These are then either coughed up or naturally expelled by the body.

However, it is not recommended for people with contagious diseases, fever, open wounds, cancer, severe hypertension, mental disorders, and active tuberculosis. As with most treatments, Pregnant Women should consult their physicians before beginning halotherapy.
What are the side effects?
When your session is over, you may notice a faint trace of salt on your lips and the slight taste of salt on your tongue. Any salt that collects on your clothing can be easily brushed off. A runny nose or increase in coughing means your body is clearing out mucus and toxins.
