Himalayan Salt Rooms

Ever hear of a himalayan salt room? Yes, an entire room made of the same salt you use to cook with. Can you lick it? NO! Well, you could, but that isn’t the point of the room.
Salt therapy has its origins from the salt mines and caves of Eastern Europe. Modern dry salt therapy has its origins from the salt mines and caves in Europe and Russia.
So the real question is; why would I sit in a salt room; and what can I gain from it?

Here are the top five benefits of a himalayan salt room

  • Enhances overall breathing

    Cilia are the finite hairs that line the windpipe and act like microscopic breathing filters. According to studies, positive ions decrease cilia activity while, conversely, negative ions have a more increasing and positive effect. Himalayan salt is therefore believed to improve breathing by releasing negative ions that filter foreign particles and keep the lungs cleaner in general.

  • Cleanses and purifies the air

    Himalayan salt helps clean the air through an operation called hygroscopy, which attracts and absorbs contaminated water molecules from the immediate environment and locks them into the salt crystal. The process has the amazing ability to remove cigarette smoke, dust and other contaminants from the air. This benefit is particularly popular, as salty air acts as an overall health booster and can help clear the air passages.

  • Calms Allergies & Reduces Asthma

    Himalayan salt is believed to filter dust, mold, mildew and pet dander from indoor air. Just as a nasal saline spray uses salt to clear airways, they help to relieve allergy symptoms of all kinds. Those who struggle with asthma also claim to benefit from Himalayan salt. It is such an effective breathing aid that certain manufacturers have produced Himalayan salt inhalers targeted toward sufferers of asthma, bronchitis and other respiratory issues.

  • Raises Energy Levels

    Positive ions deplete the body of energy, and it is believed that Himalayan salt lamps can actually do the opposite. The negative ions increase energy levels, which yields a refreshing effect similar to the feeling of rejuvenation achieved from spending time in nature.

  • Alleviate Cough & Other Symptoms of the Common cold

    It is possible that the negative ions released by Himalayan salt lamps may protect against airborne germs. In addition to removing these contaminants from the air, the salt also allows the body to filter air more effectively in an attempt to block any foreign particles from making it into the lungs. This can prevent the advancement of coughing, sneezing, sore throats, and other minor symptoms of the common cold.

Benefits of Himalayan Salt Therapy

Imagine yourself getting a massage on the beach. A gentle breeze, the lapping waves, and the cry of an exotic bird somewhere above you. The salty air lingers as you relax into the moment. Your breathing becomes easier. But wait a minute…you’re not actually at the beach, so how can this be?
Let’s talk about the latest restorative treatment to enter the spa world: Salt therapy rooms. Not just the “latest must-have” add-on to a massage treatment because trends say so. But the latest, must-have add-on because there are some real benefits to salt therapy. Here’s why.
Origins of Himalayan Salt Therapy
The “proper” term for salt therapy is halo therapy and the practice dates back to the 12th century. Back then, European people visited salt caves to help with health issues, specifically those of a respiratory nature.
Fast forward to the modern world, and salt therapy takes on a whole new premise. Salt therapy rooms built specifically to accommodate massage treatment rooms in spas and wellness centers have evolved.
How Himalayan Salt Rooms Benefit You
At the core of Himalayan salt rooms are the salts themselves, often a “recreation” of how experiencing a salt cave would be. Both temperature and humidity are controlled but it is the salts themselves which do the heavy lifting.
Himalayan salts are extracted deep from ancient ocean beds in the Himalayan mountains that were crystallized millions of years ago. These salts are the elitist of all salts, in terms of cleanliness and as a mirror of many of the natural elements found in our bodies.
Himalayan salts emit negative ions (under the right conditions), neutralizing positive ions in the air and generating more negative ions. They literally purify the air, leading to a cleaner, healthier environment. Himalayan salts can:
• Rejuvenate your nervous system, contributing to overall wellness
• Promote easier breathing and improve lung conditions including bronchitis, asthma, coughs, and colds
• Lower blood pressure and stress levels
• Improve skin health including eczema, acne, rashes, dermatitis, and aging skin.
