How Salt Therapy can help improve sports performance
Athletes everywhere know that they must train hard and keep their bodies in top shape if they want to be the best at their sport. However, something that many athletes are not aware of is that salt therapy can help them achieve their full potential.
There are several respiratory conditions that affect athletes, such as airflow obstruction, exposure to airborne allergens and other inhaled particles, as well as other respiratory illnesses such as asthma and allergies. Salt therapy is a natural solution to these issues.
The way it works is that a machine called the halogenerator grinds salt into tiny particles and disperses it into the air. This makes it easier to reach deep into the deep parts of the respiratory tract, dissolving bacteria and other pollutants, and at the same time eliminating mucus plugs from the airway, relieving breathing difficulties. Salt therapy is also employed for its anti-inflammatory properties, resolving the airway inflammation which is the basis of some lung diseases. In athletes, it can help increase lung capacity and in speeding up recovery between training sessions, making it an ideal therapy that allows an athlete to achieve better performance with less breath.
Sitting in our salt room provides a relaxing environment to help improve sleep and athletic recovery. A consistent regimen is recommended for best results.
“During a typical adult session customers put their feet up in a comfortable leather chair rest or read and breathe in a dry salt aerosol. The micro particles are blown in the air by halo generators. In our separate children’s room kids play in a big sand box except with salt on the walls and floor and play while breathing in the dry salt air.”
