Addressing the Coronavirus
Our #1 concern is YOUR health and wellbeing. That is why we want to address salt therapy and the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and our cleaning procedures here at Breathe Salt & Sauna. This statement has been sent out by the President of the Salt Therapy Association, Leo Tonkin:“ I recently spoke with Dr. Daniel Layish, MD, a board certified pulmonologist and a fellow founding director of the Salt Therapy Association who said, “It is too early to tell what impact halotherapy may have with this strain of the coronavirus; however, this Coronavirus does affect the respiratory and lung system, and dry salt therapy has been shown to provide symptomatic benefits, such as in a clinical study we conducted that focused on patients with cystic fibrosis. While there is no need to be overly concerned at this time, being proactive and taking care of your respiratory system is becoming more important than ever before.” A strong advocate for this complementary therapy, Dr. Layish often recommends his patients to the local Salt Room in Orlando, Florida. As a matter of fact, in many countries it is an approved therapeutic treatment covered by health providers. We always recommend you consult a physician or licensed health professional before a salt therapy session.
Dry salt therapy is antimicrobial, which kills many microorganisms or stops their growth. The salt used in our halogenerators is 99.99% pure medical-grade sodium chloride; therefore, there are no concerns regarding any foreign substances or contaminants when inhaling the dry salt aerosol. Salt is antimicrobial, which means it is an agent that kills microorganisms or stops their growth.
Our salt rooms and booths have exhaust systems to purge the salt room in between sessions for a fresh air exchange before the start of the next session. We also have BetterAir systems in our salt rooms and use BetterAir spray in our salt booths. BetterAir’s patented technology is designed to continuously release Enviro-Biotics™, a vapor compound comprised of an organically cultured strain of probiotics called Bacillus ferment. Billions of micron-sized Enviro-Biotics™ are emitted into the air to form a protective shield of microflora to purify the air, surfaces, and inside objects.The Enviro-Biotics™ work on a microscopic level and penetrate places impossible to reach consuming pollen, dead skin cells and dust mite fecal matter, considered as leading causes of allergies and stale odor. The result is cleaner air and surfaces, a healthy microbiome, and balanced indoor space.
Salt kills the microorganisms. We take it a step further by wiping down everything in our salt rooms with On Guard essential oil, which includes each chair, the armrests, Kleenex® boxes, cup holders, all the toys in the family room, all counters, and surfaces that a person touches. In our saunas, we spray dōTERRA On Guard on all surfaces, along with the BetterAir spray. We also wipe down our saunas and wash all of our floors with vinegar water nightly.
