With our world pandemic being front and center with respiratory hygiene, Dry Salt Therapy (aka halotherapy) is the 100% natural alternative for clearing the lungs from toxins, allergens and pollutants we inhale every single day! It helps provide relief with COPD, Cystic Fibrosis, allergies, sinuses plus skin conditions (ie: acne, eczema, rosacea, psoriasis and more). It’s basically a “toothbrush for the lungs” and a natural detox for overall body wellness as you relax in a salt room/salt booth and breathe in the natural properties of pure sodium chloride, pharmaceutical grade salt 99.999%. The anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and super absorbent benefits work to expel these toxins from the body through the natural body drainage system.
