What is salt therapy?
No, salt therapy doesn’t involve eating spoonfuls of the crystalline mineral; this is far more therapeutic than that.
Today’s salt therapy is a modern version of an Eastern European tradition where people chilled out in natural salt caves to improve their overall wellbeing.
The ancient practice – also known as halotherapy, derived from the Greek word for salt, ‘alas’ – is said to help improve constriction of our airways, easing symptoms like coughing, wheezing and asthma.
Himalayan salt, in particular, is also said to have anti-bacterial and anti-microbial effects, be a natural moisturizer and aid in detoxification, making it a great way to combat respiratory conditions, alleviate stress and treat skin conditions.
It seems overall, salt is a pretty powerful mineral.
How does it work?
