Physical and mental fitness are crucial factors for individuals to live happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives. They play an integral role to one’s wellbeing, occupation, personal goals, family life, and overall lifestyle.
Physical fitness is the body’s ability to work efficiently in order to enable individuals to perform daily activities efficiently, with the least amount of exertion. It is a state of well-being and entails healthy body composition, muscular endurance, flexibility, general strength, and cardiorespiratory endurance or health. Mental fitness is equally as important as it keeps the brain, emotional health, and social health stable. In fact, physical and mental fitness are very much entwined, and maintaining both can increase one’s longevity and lifespan.
Most oftentimes, physical exercise is the only factor that is associated with being physically fit, but what most people may not realize is that a healthy cardiorespiratory system is what allows one to exercise consistently and effectively. Taking time to relax and destress is also an important factor in maintaining mental health and proper oxygen intake and breathing techniques allow for that to take place effectively.
Since halotherapy (sea salt therapy) works to cleanse and detoxify the lungs and respiratory system, it allows the lungs to deliver oxygen to the bloodstream without being hindered by harmful bacteria. Furthermore, salt particles contain anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory particles that accelerate the transportation of mucus, while eliminating any viruses and allergens that may cause sickness and disease.
Halotherapy sessions last 45 minutes and are conducted in a relaxing environment where clients sit down in comfortable chairs and breathe in microscopic salt particulates. As clients inhale the salt particles they are able to watch a show, read a book, or take a nap. This process promotes rest and relaxation that can be much needed due to the stressors of everyday life while improving the skin and respiratory system at the same time.
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.
