Asthma is a chronic, long-term condition that affects the lungs. The airways of the lungs can become inflamed and narrowed which causes those who suffer from the condition to have difficulty breathing or prone to asthma attacks.
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, asthma affects more than 25 million Americans.
Asthma affects people of all ages and can range from mild to severe, affecting those that suffer from it on a daily basis or only when triggered. Some triggers include exposure to cigarette smoke, chemical irritants or industrial dust, exposure to cigarette smoke, and poor air quality.
Although there is no cure for asthma, there are ways to manage it with treatment and avoiding triggers. Most medical care professionals set up a treatment plan with their patients depending on the age and severity of the symptoms.
Salt Therapy has been a popular way to provide natural relief to those who suffer from asthma. Since salt particles have anti-inflammatory properties, swollen and tight airway passages are widened, making it easier to breathe. Salt therapy is also an antibacterial that kills pathogens such as bacteria and allergens that may cause asthma attacks.
The suggested amount of sessions for those that suffer from asthma is 3-5 sessions a month for a minimum of 6-12 months depending on the severity of symptoms. Regular sessions are recommended in order to maintain the benefits of salt therapy.
Our salt rooms are equipped with comfortable chairs, a t.v. with access to Netflix, and premium channels for adults and teens with sand toys for children.
It is important to note that Salt Therapy is a natural supplemental way to help alleviate symptoms but does not cure any condition or disease.
