Back to School: Giving the Kids an Immunity Boost with Salt Therapy

The month of August is just like any other month for most people. However, school-aged kids have come to dread the coming of this time of the year because it marks the beginning of a new school term. Parents generally enjoy the extra time they have to relax or work without the very much distracting sound of child laughter. That is until their child comes home from school sick.

When thousands of kids are packed together in a single building for six to eight hours five days a week, it can be difficult to avoid the spreading of germs, bacteria, and viruses, causing many kids to fall sick. Salt Therapy can help lower the chances of your children getting sick by boosting their immune system.

Salt therapy or halotherapy is often administered in a salt room with walls covered with thick layers of salt.  Generators are used to disperse salt in the air in the form of a dry aerosol. The aerosol, when inhaled, offers several health benefits including relief from various illnesses such as asthma, allergies, breathing problems, sinusitis, ear infections, COPD, and psoriasis.

At The Salt Suite®, 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.

Salt therapy helps boost your child’s immune system by eliminating bacteria and pollutants from his or her respiratory tract. Book a session for your child today to help boost their immune system for the upcoming school year!

“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 microparticles are blown in the air by halo generators. In our separate children’s room kids play in a big sandbox except with salt on the walls and floor and play while breathing in the dry salt air.”
