Salt has been around since the beginning of time and has been utilized in various therapeutic ways. Thanks to technological innovations, another aspect of salt therapy has emerged where the main health benefit comes from the salt’s quality to absorb moisture. It is called Dry Salt Therapy and is also known as Halotherapy.
Salt Therapy is a non-invasive, all natural treatment benefiting adults, children, and athletes. Salt therapy is very beneficial for overall wellness by removing the toxicity from the respiratory system, improving the function and appearance of the skin and boosting the immune system.
Dry salt is super absorbent, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. During a session at a salt room, pharmaceutical-grade salt is used in equipment called a Halogenerator to create the pure dry salt misted in the air where you are seated. When you breathe the pure dry salt, it naturally helps to thin mucus in the airways and loosen particles of dust, pollen, and toxins in the respiratory system. Dry salt therapy helps to alleviate conditions including: Stress, Anxiety, Allergies, Sinusitis, Cough, Psoriasis, Eczema & Acne.
Intown Salt Room, owned and operated by Grant Park resident Carrie Wright, is the only facility in Atlanta, Ga, to offer two different salt room experiences, dry salt therapy and meditation with sound therapy inside Atlanta’s 285 Perimeter. Each experience is 30 minutes, where you sit in a zero gravity chair, relax to calming music and breathe. Simply wear the clothes you arrive in and place your items in a secure locker during your stay.
For general respiratory health, adding salt therapy regularly to your overall wellness routine will naturally enhance lung capacity, boost the immune system, reduce stress and aid better sleep.
