The Healing Power of Himalayan Salt Therapy

The anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and antifungal properties of salt have been widely known for centuries, particularly for the delicate mucus tissue that lines the respiratory system. From ancient techniques like neti-pots to modern thalassotherapy pools, the healing powers of salt are undisputed. 

The negative ions released by this ultrapure salt work on our bodies at the biochemical level, particularly through stress reduction and relaxation, with more energy, better mental health, and mood enhancement. By counterbalancing inflows of positive ions from all the electronic devices around us in our everyday lives, Himalayan salt therapy improves emotional and mental health across the board.

Breathing salt-enriched air deep down into the lungs during halotherapy sessions offers system-wide benefits: 

  • Smoother, clearer skin, with less redness, dryness, and itching, with indications that salt treatments may lessen the severity and frequency of psoriasis and eczema flare-ups, and possibly with faster post-surgery healing; 

  • Easier breathing, as Himalayan salt reduces inflammation and helps fight off infections, clear respiratory blockages by drawing fluid from swollen lung linings and sinus tissues, caused by allergies, asthma, and even smoker’s cough; 

  •  More energy and enhanced well-being, as negative ions boost serotonin, the happiness hormone that is widely believed to have positive impacts on memory, mood, and sleep, as well as appetite and digestion. 

  • Himalayan Salt Therapy Pro Tip: Eat a light snack (fruit is perfect) and drink plenty of water before and after your halotherapy session, as staying well hydrated helps clear clogged airways and eliminate toxins.
