Enquiry

With a salt room in the Health and Well-Being Center of the Zdravilišče hotel.

Salt therapy is based on inhalation and exposure of the body to dry salt aerosol and is performed in the so-called salt room. It is carried out with the help of a medical device - a halogenerator, which systematically blows micron particles of dry salt aerosol of pure rock salt into the room, thus creating the microclimate of natural salt caves.

HOW DO SALT AEROSOLS WORK?

The main feature of dry salt aerosol is that it cleans and disinfects the respiratory system and skin. The dry salt aerosol in the salt room creates a sterile, hypobacterial, negative ion-charged atmosphere. The more negative ions there are, the more efficient cell renewal is. Negative ions are carriers of vital energy - they improve blood circulation, strengthen mental concentration, relieve headaches and breathing problems, are indispensable for maintaining the psychophysical strength and vitality of the organism, and alleviate weather-related pain.

HOW DOES IT HELP?

The positive effects of salt therapy are shown in the improvement of lung function, the immune system is strengthened and the the mucous membrane thickens, as the salt aerosol has an anti-inflammatory effect, thins the mucus, relaxes the muscles of the airways, facilitates coughing and improves the patency of the airways. Salt aerosol contains particles ranging in size from 10 to 1 μm (micron).

Particle sizes between 5 and 10 microns are beneficial for the upper respiratory tract, and particles between 1 and 5 microns for the lower respiratory tract.

By inhaling the fine microparticles of the salt aerosol, these will be transferred to the smallest parts of the bronchi in the lungs, as well as to other parts of the respiratory tract, the sinuses and the nasal cavity. Salt particles act as an antibacterial agent, ionize the air and fill it with minerals and trace elements, valuable for our health. These thin the mucus and help to remove it from the airways, sinuses and ears, restore the mucous membrane and ensure the establishment of a healthy immune system. In addition, the functioning of the lymphatic system is also stimulated, which helps the body to cleanse itself of poisons and toxins.

Like the respiratory tract, the skin also plays an important role in protecting the body, as it defends it against bacteria, viruses and other microbes, excretes waste, regulates temperature and prevents dehydration by controlling the level of sweating. For skin diseases, the salt aerosol works from the inside out, removing toxins from the body and stimulating skin renewal. With the help of salt therapies, the cells in the body get the much-needed microelements they need for their growth.

Salt therapy strengthens the skin's protective barrier, stimulates microcirculation and has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-edematous effects, prevents the formation of acne and acts as a gentle exfoliator. Because of the aforementioned, salt therapy is not only effective in relieving skin problems such as dermatitis, psoriasis, etc., but can also be an excellent solution for improving the overall quality and appearance of the skin.

Salt therapies are used to alleviate the symptoms of diseases of the lower and upper respiratory tract and the skin, such as dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema, as they are supposed to stimulate the purification of the mucous membranes and the epidermis of the skin.
