The Benefits of the Beach, Indoors
Who doesn’t love laying on a towel at a quiet beach, reading a book to the sound of waves crashing against the shore? Or taking a dip in the cool refreshing water and breathing in that salty air; there’s simply nothing better! One of the biggest benefits of the beach is the salty air. Breathing in that crisp, ocean breeze can help decrease stress instantly. Now imagine that effect multiplied forty times over! We measure the concentration of salt particles in the air in our mobile salt room. Over the course of one minute there are over 800,000 particles of salt the size of 1 micron. This is small enough to reach the lower respiratory system. At the beach there are between 10,000 and 20,000 particles. Our mobile salt room has 40 times more salt in the air than the beach. On top of that, it is dry salt, not wet like at the beach. This allows the salt to reach deep down into the lungs.
Salt has also been utilized in various therapeutic, healing and medicinal ways including saline solutions, nebulizers, skin scrubs, salt baths, Nettie pots, etc...mostly known as "wet" salt therapy. In our modern society, thanks to technological innovations, another aspect of salt therapy has emerged where the main health benefit comes from the salt's quality to absorb moisture. It is called Dry Salt Therapy and is also known as Halotherapy. At SALT WAVE we use a special dry pharmaceutical salt that is placed into a halogenerator that precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles.
The salt generator we use at SALT WAVE is one of the most technologically advanced halogenerators in the industry. During your session, the salt aerosol is dispersed into the air. You simply lay on our beautiful white captains chairs and listen to soft music playing while breathing in the salt particles. As the salt travels into the mobile salt room, these salt particles are inhaled into your respiratory system. The dry salt naturally starts absorbing allergens, toxins and foreign substances from your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. The properties of dry salt also absorb impurities and provide antibacterial properties that benefit the skin. The smaller particles can reach beneath the skin’s surface and absorb moisture towards the skin. Everything about your salt session is subtle and calming, in fact many people fall asleep during their session.
