About Halotherapy - Therapeutic Salt Room
Salt therapy, also referred to as Halotherapy, is a drug-free and completely natural treatment with no side effects and significant benefits to a number of physical disorders. It takes place in a dry and sterile environment that recreates a natural microclimate identical to ancient salt caves and salt mines. As a non-invasive and safe respiratory treatment, dry salt aerosol that has a small particle size and a negative electrical charge, is passively inhaled in a specially constructed salt room. The dry salt aerosol is gently blown into the salt room. The walls and the floor of the salt room are covered with crystal salt. The particles of salt are inhaled and travel into the deepest parts of the lungs and sinuses. The inhalation of the salt particles helps to open constricted airways, reduce inflammation, and increase the clearance of mucous. Providing a negative ion environment (like the seashore), the salt room contributes to a feeling of well-being, and promotes stress reduction.
Health Conditions Benefiting from Salt Therapy
Halotherapy is beneficial in the treatment of asthma, allergies, frequent colds, flu, sore throat, respiratory and skin disorders, infections, thyroid issues, arthritis, eczema, psoriasis, acne, and many more conditions including stress, ADHD and sleep apnea. It also helps in cleaning pollens, viruses, pollutants, and toxins out of the lungs, sinuses, and nasal passageways thus preventing illness, decreasing allergies, irritation, and inflammation in the respiratory tract.
Due to the antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties of salt, Halotherapy can be used as a preventive therapy. It can be used as a complementary treatment to prescribed medications with the approval of your doctor or as a sole preventative treatment.
We live in a very polluted and pollen filled environment and toxins are everywhere. As a result, an increasing number of us suffer from asthma, sinusitis, and allergies. We clean our skin, hair, and brush our teeth but there are very few means available to clean out our lungs and respiratory tract. Respiratory tract hygiene can be achieved using Salt Therapy.
At Shores Wellness Solutions we provide luxurious accommodations, comfortable seating, a peaceful environment and a relaxed atmosphere. We offer 45-minute long sessions. The therapy involves sitting in the salt room in an adjustable and comfortable lounge chair. The room temperature and humidity is maintained at a comfortable level. Most people like to close their eyes, and some will fall asleep or meditate. There is no talking (including cell phones and/or texting) allowed during our adult sessions. A change in lighting will alert you at the end of the session that the treatment is over. For exclusive privacy, there is an option for booking a VIP private session at an extra charge.

Cell phones & electronics must be silenced.
No food, chewing gum, or drinks (including water) allowed during the session.
Please make sure you use the restroom before the treatment, so you do not disturb other customers leaving the room during the session.
It is very important to drink some water before and after treatment. Complimentary water and hot tea with lemon and honey which helps to move the mucus out of your throat quicker will be provided.
Please do not touch walls or any decorations. There are cameras installed inside the salt room for your safety.

Salt Therapy Treatment
How many treatments will I need?
Every experience is different, and it depends on the type and severity of your condition. Based on the research, we would recommend a course of 10-12 treatments, preferably within 4-8 weeks. You may feel some improvement after a single session, but a series of treatments is required to achieve long-term results. For mild conditions, 6-8 treatments may be enough. Each session should be repeated every other day for several days, depending on your needs and the condition. It is recommended to repeat the series of treatment 2-3 times in a year. Some people use treatments as a preventative measure to avoid the common cold and other respiratory viruses, and for overall health & wellness.
What to expect after the treatment?
Salt Therapy may produce a slight skin irritation in some individuals that will disappear after a few sessions. Some people will experience a mild salt taste on their lips, similar to being by the ocean. Others may experience a mild throat tickle, which can be easily treated by sipping warm water after the session. Most people will experience increased mucous production. This will present itself in the form of a runny nose or a productive cough after the session. This is the body’s natural mechanism for elimination of toxins, pollens, and viruses. If you have ever smoked in the past, you may experience a period of cough and mucous production as your body naturally clears the lungs of residual toxins. Most asthmatics will also experience an initial period of increased mucous production and cough as the body decreases inflammation, opens airways, and expels the stagnant mucous.
When should the treatment be avoided?
Treatment should be avoided during the acute (active) phase of any illness, including the following: infections accompanied by fever, acute tuberculosis, acute inflammatory diseases, contagious conditions, cardiac insufficiency and severe heart disorders, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) in the third stage, bleeding, spitting of blood, alcohol or drug intoxication, unstable or uncontrolled hypertension, and acute stages of respiratory diseases.
*** To ensure your safety and the safety of our clients, we may refuse your treatment if there shall be an evidence of any active phase and/or contiguous disease!!!
Side Effects and Counter Indications
Halotherapy has few and rare side effects. Certain patients may experience a dry throat and increased coughing in the beginning. This is an absolutely natural part of the cleaning process of the respiratory system, during which the pollutants accumulated through a long time and now ripped up by salt, are expelled from even the deepest regions of the lungs. The side effects cease with the removal of pollution and pathogens. Skin irritation and increased dermal sensitivity may also occur. In such a case, decrease the frequency of therapy sessions.
