Salt therapy is more than a fancy trend in spas. Aside from being relaxing and rejuvenating, it’s also quickly gaining popularity because of the health benefits it offers spa-goers. Similarly, spending time by the beach and inhaling salt-filled air does one a lot of good.
As mentioned earlier, salt therapy is steadily getting recognized as a powerhouse of health benefits. An average session should last about 45 minutes to 1 hour and is equated to spending one to three days by the ocean. These are some of the few benefits that salt therapy is packed with:
- Heals Respiratory Diseases
Inhalation of the negative ions in salt quashes mucus and reduces the swelling in the lungs, correcting conditions like bronchitis, asthma, coughs, colds, and allergies. Also, the capacity of the lungs is significantly increased, and the occurrence of sicknesses is greatly reduced in both children and adults. Spending this amount of time in a salt cave is one way of reaping fully from these benefits.
- Improves Skin Conditions
Severe drying of the skin causes various diseases such as rashes, acne, psoriasis and eczema on the skin. This dryness can be fought with regular sessions of salt therapy. Mineral salts rejuvenate and moisturize the skin, and they also restore the natural balance of water of the skin.
Additionally, users of salt therapy reported that prolonged exposure to sea salt relieved them of headaches and stress, caused them to sleep better, and spiked their energy levels.
