Salt Therapy (Halotherapy) for Seniors:

Are you a senior who suffers from respiratory difficulties and disease along with skin conditions? 

Are these conditions affecting both your health and quality of life?

As we age, a gradual decline in lung function often occurs, which can lead to breathing problems, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Bones become thinner as people age, and this can cause the ribcage to change shape and become rigid, making it difficult to expand or contract as quickly as when the person was younger. The muscles around the diaphragm also become weaker, making it harder to pull air in and out of the lungs.

Medical issues can lead to the following breathing conditions: colds, allergies, sinus problems.

More severe cases include: COPD, asthma, bronchitis, smoker’s cough.

Common skin problems affecting the elderly are:  dry, flaking skin.

More severe conditions are:  acne, rosacea, rashes, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema.

 

How Salt Therapy Works for Seniors at Breathe Salt & Sauna:

At Breathe Salt & Sauna we have specialized equipment called a halo-generator, which grinds pharmaceutical salt into breathable particles and dispenses a dry salt aerosol into the air in our salt rooms and salt booth.  As you enjoy your session, we recommend you take 5-10 deep breaths.

As the salt gets deep into your lungs, it breaks up the mucus so the body can eliminate toxins.  During and after your session, you may have a runny nose and cough. These are normal, as the salt therapy session cleans the lungs and improves your overall wellbeing.  The salt that does not get into your lungs falls onto your skin, improving skin rigidity, skin stimulation and it also promotes hair health.
