By breathing in pharmaceutical-grade salt microparticles from a halogenerator, the anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties of Himalayan salt opens airways, reducing airflow obstruction and mucus. As the salt air clears allergens and pollutants from the lungs, it prevents the growth of bacteria. Dry salt therapy has been credited with a positive effect on respiration and oxygen flow, skin conditions, tension, stress and general wellness. Breathing in aerosolized salt microparticles helps cleanse the respiratory tract and strengthen lung function by stimulating the body’s internal processes. Himalayan salt — the only salt used in these halotherapy experiences — contains 84 naturally occurring minerals and salts with research-proven health benefits for users.
