Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, beautifully benefits adults, children, athletes, and even animals. It’s a natural, safe treatment with no harmful side effects. Halotherapy is beneficial for overall wellness by removing the toxicity from the respiratory system, improving the appearance and function of the skin, and last but not least, boosting the immune system.
For general respiratory hygiene, salt therapy rooms enhance lung capacity, boost the immune system, reduce stress, and aid better sleep for optimal health.
Healthy lungs and a clean respiratory system are essential for vitality, energy, and longevity.
An average adult takes about 12-15 breaths per minute, while young children take about 20-30 breaths per minute. The main function of the lungs is to deliver oxygen to our red blood cells and remove the CO2 from the body. In addition, our respiratory tract acts as a very important defense mechanism by filtering the air from pollutants & foreign substances, it regulates the pH level of blood by managing the levels of CO2, and it also helps control blood pressure by converting the chemical in the blood called angiotensin I into angiotensin II.
People are exposed to pollutants, airborne diseases, bacteria, allergens, and other irritating factors on a daily basis. Halotherapy is the only method known to cleanse and detox the lungs while invigorating the entire body by increasing lung capacity & oxygen intake. Regular halotherapy practice is an excellent way to aide breathing and improve your quality of life.
Scientific research has found that inhaled dry salt particles have bactericide, mucokinetic, hydrophilic, and anti-inflammatory properties, which may help to reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen the airway passages. Dry salt particles are also known to accelerate the transportation of mucus and the elimination of residual tar and foreign allergens. A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy, and an improved immune system.
Dry salt is super absorbent and acts like a sponge attracting foreign substances along its path through the respiratory tract. The dry salt behaves like a toothbrush that moves through the respiratory system removing build-up of foreign elements that cause various respiratory ailments and conditions. Clean lungs are healthy lungs, so start halotherapy today and visit THIRD COAST SALT!

Our skin is a very complex and intelligent organ that has many important functions. It is the largest organ, and, like the respiratory system, it has a major role in protecting and defending the body against bacteria, viruses, and other microbes. It also excretes wastes, regulates temperature, and prevents dehydration by controlling the level of perspiration. Skin houses sensory receptors that detect pain, sensation, and pressure.
The aesthetic appearance of the skin has an important impact on how we are viewed by others and can have a profound psycho-emotional impact on how we feel about ourselves. As we age, our skin is the first organ to show the impact of time and lifestyle choices. Salt therapy is an excellent solution to improve the overall quality and appearance of the skin. Halotherapy can be the most important tool in aiding the healthy aging process of the skin. The truth is that healthy and glowing skin is beautiful at any age.
Scientific research has confirmed that the micro-particles of salt have a beneficial influence on the integument system (skin protective layer) and its surface hairs, providing healing and cosmetic effects. They increase activity of skin cell ion channels and activate electrophysiological activity that determines the skin’s protective properties. The salt provides pH normalization and induces reparative and regenerative processes in derma, increasing skin rigidity, stimulating growth and improving hair health. The salt impacts the skin microcirculation, assisting cellular membrane activity used in dermatology and cosmetology while enhancing their effectiveness.
Regular and consistent salt therapy may help people with the following various skin conditions: psoriasis, itching, eczema, swelling and Inflammation, dermatitis, dry and flaky skin, acne, rashes, rosacea, and skin aging. For skin conditions, high concentration and aggressive administration of dry salt and consistent sessions are the key elements for successful results.
Halotherapy is recognized as safe and effective wellness practice for preventive and restorative health care. It is not a medical treatment and is not a cure. Halotherapy is not recommended for people with contagious diseases, fever, open wounds, cancer, severe hypertension, mental disorders, and active tuberculosis. Pregnant women should consult with their doctor before using halotherapy. Anyone with serious health concerns needs to seek proper medical advice and care.
Salt therapy is simple to understand. There are three primary characteristics of pure sodium chloride, NaCl, commonly known as salt. Salt is super absorbent. Salt is anti-bacterial. Salt is anti-inflammatory.
This type of dry salt is placed into a halogenerator which precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles and then disperses the salt aerosol into the air in a closed environment such as a room or chamber. As the salt travels in the salt room, these particles of dry sodium chloride are inhaled into the respiratory system. The dry salt naturally starts absorbing allergens, toxins, and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Dry salt may help to reduce inflammation and open airway passages. The micro-sized crystal structure of pure NaCl particles breaks loose and clears out all of the ‘bad stuff’. This is how dry salt therapy can impact people suffering from respiratory conditions like allergies, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, COPD, and others.
The properties of dry salt also absorb impurities and provide anti-bacterial properties that benefit the skin with acne, psoriasis, and eczema. It regulates the skin’s micro-circulation. The smaller particles can reach beneath the skin’s surface and attract moisture towards the skin. The larger salt particles land on the skin and absorb any bacterial or foreign substances. The dry salt accelerates cell rejuvenation and improves skin rigidity.
The climate conditions in a salt room must be maintained at a certain temperature and humidity with proper ventilation to ensure the efficacy of the salt therapy and truly provide a “clean-air” environment for your benefit.
