We are all very aware, thanks to the current coronavirus pandemic, of the importance of respiratory wellness and keeping our immune systems healthy.  But how do we do this and how do we keep our customers and clients safe?

Halotherapy, or salt therapy, is a 100% natural therapy that has grown steadily in popularity in recent years and continues to be one of the top 5 growing trends in wellness.  Its attraction is the speed and efficacy of results for customers.  It is proven to aid in relieving respiratory ailments such as asthma, bronchial problems, allergies and cold and flu symptoms and also has a positive effect on many skin conditions including Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, Dermatitis, Rosacea and dry/ageing skin.

The benefits of Halotherapy can be experienced in many different areas including:

  • Respiratory Conditions / Immunity improvement (with regular use):

Asthma, Allergies, COPD, Cystic Fibrosis, Cold & Flu Symptoms, Sinusitus, Bronchitis

Respiratory conditions are improved by the salt drawing out the impurities in the upper and lower airways.   It stimulates the body’s internal processes for cleansing and removing build-up of foreign particles.   Halotherapy is also anti-inflammatory, opening bronchial tubes in the lungs and reducing inflammation in the sinuses.  

Salt therapy also strengthens the respiratory functions and breaks up and clears moisture and mucus.

  • Skin Health / Beauty:

Psoriasis, Eczema, Acne, Dermatitis, Rosacea, Dry Itchy Skin, Ageing Skin

Halotherapy naturally triggers the skin microcirculation and membrane activity and enhances protective and reparative properties. It is anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory, therefore kills any germs on the skin and helps with any inflammation of the skin.

  • Sporting Performance:

Increased Strength, Lung Function, Oxygen Saturation

Sporting performance can be enhanced through Halotherapy. Airways are expanded for increased lung function, oxygen saturation and exchange is increased and abdominal wall muscles are strengthened which helps increase lung capacity and oxygenation.  Halotherapy can also help with muscle endurance and recovery.

  • Mental Health:

Stress Reduction

Improved breathing technique induces calm and relaxation.

The appeal of this treatment is that, as previously mentioned, it is anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and boosts the immune system, which is vitally important in the current climate. The mental health aspect is incredibly important, especially after so many months in lockdown.  Sitting in peace in a salt room is a great opportunity to focus on your breathing which helps reduce the stress and anxiety of this unprecedented new way of life.

More importantly, it is a completely ‘hands free’ therapy so this can easily be added to your treatment menu without further staffing requirements.  As long as the halotherapy room/area is easy to clean between clients, it offers a significant return on investment with low operating costs, requiring little extra labour, while adding value to customer wellness experience.  Halotherapy can also be incorporated as an automated Spa service so facilities can earn extra revenue without adding extra staffing costs.

It is also very simple to retro fit a salt machine/generator.  The salt generator takes up minimum space and can also be installed into an infrared sauna cabin, or an existing room, for additional wellness benefits.  Not all existing rooms will be suitable, however a short discussion and possibly a few tweaks can resolve and obstacles.

So as more people around the world are now realising how important respiratory health and hygiene is to their wellbeing, Halotherapy offers a simple, yet highly effective, way to feel the benefits of cleaner and stronger lung health, as part of a whole body approach to wellness.
