ForeSights: Salt Therapy – An old-fashioned, non-invasive treatment enjoying a renaissance as a new health and wellness solution

Summary

Salt therapy is a non-invasive treatment that uses aerated salt or a salt bath to deliver health and wellness benefits. It comes in two forms: dry salt therapy (halotherapy) and wet salt therapy (flotation therapy). Both forms of salt therapy are claimed to promote relaxation and rejuvenation.

Salt therapy is an old-fashioned, drug-free treatment leveraging the claimed natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of salt that capitalizes on growing interest in complementary and alternative medicine.

Scope

– Dry salt therapy (halotherapy) takes mineral-rich salt and grinds it into a fine powder that is dispensed into the air to create an environment that mimics that of a salt cave.
– Inhaling salt is believed to provide respiratory benefits by thinning mucous which makes breathing easier. Aerated salt may also benefit the skin.
– Floatation therapy (wet salt therapy) involves floating in a small tank, tub, or pod filled with water and Epsom salt.
– Floatation therapy (also called float therapy) can provide a feeling of relaxation, pain relief, and stress relief – even inducing a meditative state in some cases.
– Dry salt therapy is believed to provide relief from respiratory ailments including asthma, sinusitis, bronchitis, and COPD. It may also help relieve chronic skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.
– The economics of salt therapy are compelling, largely because labor and material costs are low. Salt therapy takes place in sessions that typically run around 45 minutes.
