What Is Dry Salt Therapy
You may be familiar with ‘wet’ salt therapy. Whether you have used a nettie pot, added salt to your bath, used a saline solution to clear your nasal passageway or even gargled with salt water, you may have experienced the benefits. Dry salt therapy allows the micro-salt particles to penetrate further into your body, accessing your lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and exposed skin. Salt acts like an expectorant, accelerating mucus clearance and improving lung function while killing harmful bacteria and soothing the respiratory system.
Benefits of Dry Salt Therapy
Dry salt is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and absorbent. It can provide relief and benefits for your:
When your body comes into contact with allergens, your immune system can inflame your skin, sinus airways or digestive tract. Inflammation can be reduced by inhaling natural salt particles during a dry salt therapy session. Salt’s ability to absorb edema from swollen mucosa linings in the sinus and respiratory tracts opens airways to provide relief. Improved drainage can allow for reduction in contaminants that may trigger or prolong allergic episodes.
Asthma and Bronchitis
Lung function is improved as salt widens and clears your respiratory system. Antibacterial and anti-inflammatory sodium chloride particles have the ability to reach the deepest recesses of the bronchial system, translating to clearer air passages and fewer spasmodic attacks.Reduced inflammation and wider airways can decrease constricted breathing. Wheezing, coughing and dependence on inhalers can improve from continued sessions.
Cough, Colds, Flu
A viral infection of your nose, throat and upper respiratory tract is present with a common cold and flu. With salt therapy, your breathing becomes easier as the salt particles naturally absorb edema from swollen passages, thin mucus and make drainage easier. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties can reach the root of the problem as they are inhaled into the deepest parts of our cavities.
Inhaled salt particles thins unnaturally thick and sticky mucus often caused by cystic fibrosis. This can unclog passageways and clear accumulated buildup. Absorption of edema from mucus lining and reduction in inflammation of respiratory tract and sinuses can be additional benefits.
Psoriasis, Eczema and Acne
Exposure to natural salt properties can stimulate cell regrowth and regeneration through an increase in activity of the skins ion channels. Dry salt particles balance skin pH and reduce harmful bacteria and inflammation, often seen in dry red patches caused by dermatitis and eczema.
Sinus Infections and Sinusitis
Sinusitis can cause cavities surrounding your nasal passages to become swollen or inflamed. This interferes with drainage, causing mucus buildup and pockets of debris or bacteria to form. Salt therapy can provide relief of swollen passageways, improve drainage and promote a thinning of mucus secretions, allowing them to drain properly. This is achieved by inhaling dry salt particles.
Snoring and Sleeping Problems
Obstructed airways can cause snoring and sleep apnea. Dry salt therapy can relieve obstructed air passageways due to the anti inflammatory properties of salt particles. Air passageways can widen and irritation of inflamed tissue can take place, resulting in restful breathing while sleeping.
Stress, Anxiety and Fatigue
As you enter a salt session, healing takes place on a variety of levels. The intentionally created stress-free environment provides an isolated experience that allows the body to engage positive ions, which calm and relax the internal nervous system as you inhale salt particles. Charged particles coat your skin, reducing hypersensitivity caused by everyday environmental stresses, encouraging regeneration. A balance can be achieved aiding in your overall wellness.
How Dry Salt Therapy Works
Salt Is Dispersed
During your 45-minute salt session, you can relax, enjoy music or read in our cozy, spa-like salt covered rooms while breathing in microscopic salt particles. Our state-of-the-art halogenerator grinds pure sodium chloride into tiny micro-particles that are dispersed into the room at a set concentration.
Relax, Reset, Renew
Sit back and breath deep in your zero gravity chair as the dry salt acts like a toothbrush. It will clean through the respiratory system removing build up of foreign elements that cause various respiratory ailments. The non-inhaled particles will fall on to your skin.
Feel The Relief
When the session concludes, experience the benefits and find relief. Open passageways, increased lung capacity and oxygen intake are all possible. On a daily basis, you are exposed to pollutants, bacteria, allergens and airborne disease. Halotherapy is a great way to cleanse and detox your respiratory system.

What Clients Are Saying
I was excited to try Pure Salt Studios after reading about salt therapy in a Shape magazine article. I suffer from allergies and with all the extreme weather changes, I went in hoping this could help. I could not say enough good things about the treatment and staff. I feel renewed when I come out and have had less issues with weather change.
