Are you suffering from seasonal allergies? Halotherapy can help!
Seasonal allergies can cause intense discomfort. People suffering from allergies experience symptoms such as stuffy and/or runny noses, hacking cough, swollen, itchy, watery eyes, and congestion, not to mention facial pressure and headaches. Halotherapy is a safe, effective, natural way to get relief from these uncomfortable, and sometimes absolutely miserable symptoms. Unlike allergy medications, halotherapy has no unwanted side effects and not only relieves allergy, and other upper respiratory symptoms, but also reduces the frequency of these symptoms while providing a wealth of other health benefits, such as enhancing lung capacity, boosting the immune system, reducing stress, and aiding better sleep.
So what exactly is Halotherapy? Halotherapy, also referred to as dry salt therapy, is the process of heating pure grade sodium chloride and then grinding it into tiny particles of salt that are dispersed into the air by a machine called a halogenerator. Salt therapy clients sit in heated massage chairs and breathe in the salt particles which penetrate the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli helping to heal all types of respiratory conditions.
There are several ways in which halotherapy can aid allergy relief. Allergies can be triggered by bacteria. Salt therapy is antibacterial and prevents bacteria from growing and multiplying. Allergies cause inflammation in your sinuses and salt is anti-inflammatory. It reduces inflammation, clearing blockages and allowing for easier breathing. It will also alleviate the painful facial sinus pressure. Finally the salt flushes out pollen and other allergy triggers from your system.
If you are experiencing painful, frustrating allergy symptoms, just 3 salt therapy sessions per week can offer much needed relief. Come by the Salt Oasis and let us help you enjoy Spring without the discomfort of seasonal allergies!
