Salt therapy is designed to cleanse and relieve inflammation in both the skin and the lungs, relieving symptoms of everything from the common cold, to more serious conditions such as asthma, bronchitis and cystic fibrosis.
The therapy takes around 45 minutes, in which you are able to sit in a warm, cosy room mimicking that of a salt cave. Minute particles of salt are then inhaled via the halognerator machine, which grinds pharmaceutical grade salt and is then dispersed into the salt room.
The idea behind the salt inhalation is to allow the salt to flow down into the respiratory system and ease any inflammation in the lungs and on the skin to allow for better breathing.
Salts of the Earth was founded in2010 by David and Katherine Lindsay who are clearly passionate about their work and since opening their initial clinic have now expanded rapidly, “We saw an opportunity to help relieve the symptoms of Australians who suffer from respiratory and skin conditions, be it ongoing or seasonal,” says David Lindsay, entrepreneur and co-founder of Salts of the Earth.
None evasive and chemical free, what this complimentary therapy also offers is time out. Salts of the Earth encourages you to leave technology at the door and simply sit back in their massage chairs for the duration, have a sleep, or read whilst taken deep breaths to allow the treatment to work.
Recommended to those who may suffer from respiratory problems, the treatment can also help ease the anxiety of having such conditions, along with taking a bit of “me” away from the busy outside world.
Salts of the Earth now have seven stores across Victoria and one in Western Australia.
