Written by a teenager with first-hand salt & sauna experience!
Leonardoda Vinci once said, “Every now and then, go away, have a little relaxation, for when you comeback to your work, your judgment will be surer.” During the teenage years, the mind and body is under stress from all the everyday things. These years, when someone is not a child, but not yet an adult, can be a challenging and stressful time. Fortunately, there is a place that can make the stress go away — Breathe Salt & Sauna.
Salt therapy (Halotherapy) provides isolation in a stress-free environment in a salt room. Pharmaceutical-grade salt is circulated into the room, providing antibacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits. The infrared saunas, combined with chromotherapy (color light therapy), can reduce stress and anxiety by balancing the body’s level of cortisol, the primary stress hormone. The heat also helps the body’s muscles relax, which naturally reduces stress. Anything that can help teens during this time is worth checking out, right?
Ways salt therapy and infrared saunas can improve the lives of teens:
- Reduce stress levels. There is no doubt that high school is difficult to handle with the pressure of college a few years or months away, tensions between classmates or studying for the ACT and SAT. For teens, they are under constant pressure to fit in and discover their life path.
- Equalize hormones. During the teenage years, we produce a large amount of hormones to catch up with the growing process, but until growing has stopped, the body has a surplus of hormones. The salt therapy and infrared sauna balance those hormones and relieve growing pains during those crucial years. The chromotherapy also balances hormones through wave frequencies and vibrations. Each color sends off a different amount of them, which gives a unique benefit to the person receiving the therapy.
- Improve high school athletic performance. Injuries come about all the time in athletics. Studies find that saunas — in the same way that ice baths soothe — help and restore the body back to its condition, prior to an injury or being sore. Detoxification is also a benefit of the infrared saunas to help athletes. The salt therapy helps regulate breathing patterns, which makes exercise easier to handle and less winding.
- Clearer complexions. Being a teenager is a difficult time. Acne, Eczema and Psoriasis are not fun. Salt therapy causes the skin to increase the activity of skin ion channels, which cause your skin to produce and regenerate new skin cells. The salt also causes the skin to shrink pores by reducing oil production, which will result in acne disappearing. The heat causes the pores to sweat, opening and releasing the oil and buildup, fighting cystic and topical acne.
