Salt & Soul 101

Halotherapy has a long and successful history. There is much to discover about the process behind the amazing results you will experience after time spent in our aerosolized pressure controlled salt cave. But here are some basics... Halotherapy is a natural, antibacterial treatment of the lungs and skin. It alleviates symptoms of asthma, allergies, sinusitis, snoring, bronchitis, COPD, eczema, fatigue and insomnia.

 

Salt therapy produces negative ions that promote brain chemistry changes which relieve stress, elevate mood and elicit relaxation. A well known decongestant, dry aerosol salt therapy can improve sports performance, enhance singing and improve post surgical healing. Halotherapy is beneficial for everyone. To affirm our wellness philosophy and support our mission of health and wellbeing, Salt and Soul also offers hydromassage and infrared sauna sessions.

Salt has many other functions than just regulating the water content of the body.

Here are some of the more vital functions of salt in the body:

  1. Salt is important for water balance regulation and for fluid distribution on either side of the cell walls.

  2. Salt is very important to the proper function of the adrenal glands.

  3. Salt is effective in stabilizing irregular heartbeats and, contrary to the misconception that it causes high blood pressure, it is actually essential for the regulation of blood pressure – in conjunction with water. Naturally, the proportions are critical.

  4. Salt is vital to the extraction of excess acidity from the cells in the body, particularly the brain cells. Acidity–alkalinity is balanced constantly by the kidneys.

  5. Salt is vital for balancing the sugar levels in the blood, a needed element in diabetics.

  6. Salt is vital for the generation of hydroelectric energy in cells in the body. It is used for local power generation at the sites of energy needed by the cells.
