HaloBooth (Salt Room)
Halotherapy, also called salt therapy (“Halois” is the greek word for salt), consists in breathing dry pharmaceutical grade salt to clean and improve the respiratory system. While sitting in a comfortable booth, this salt is grinded into microscopic particles and released into the air by a device called a halogenerator. Salt is then inhaled and also absorbed by the skin.
Salt has antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties and can absorb irritants, including allergens and toxins, from the respiratory system. It can also break up mucus and reduce inflammation. All these benefits can result in cleaner and healthier airways. The skin is equally improved by the same properties, with salt absorbing bacteria and other impurities responsible for many skin conditions.
Respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion and cough can be improved with a regular use of salt rooms. Cleaned and opened up airways improve breathing, which in turn allows a better night sleep.
The immune, nervous and lymphatic systems are equally benefited by the anti-inflammatory and detoxifying effects of halotherapy. Additional benefits are reduced stress and headaches, increased energy and improvement of skin condition such as psoriasis, rashes, eczema, acne.
Thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties, salt can increase lung capacity and oxygen intake. More oxygen intake helps you exercise longer and recover faster. This improves endurance and performance. As breathing has such an important role in oxygen intake, halotherapy is extremely beneficial in the recovery process, helping in resolving shortness of breath and maintaining high levels of oxygen. All this combined with the anti-inflammatory process can boost recovery after workout and help keep your performances at high levels.
Combining salt room with your exercise or Oxygen therapy can increase the magnitude of effectiveness.
