Few events are more welcome in western Massachusetts than the end of winter. No more single-digit temps, freezing winds or scraping windshields. But the change in seasons wreaks havoc on many people suffering from skin or respiratory conditions. A session of springtime salt therapy may help.

Allure reports that as the skin attempts to adjust to humid air and warmer temps, it can feel heavy or greasy as more oil gets caught under the skin’s surface. The National Rosacea Society refers to spring as “rosacea season,” and the American Lung Association advises that spring is when allergy and asthma triggers make their annual appearance.

What Is It Like? How Does It Work?

If you suffer from skin or respiratory conditions (or both), or are feeling worn down and stressed by work and life in general, halotherapy may offer relief. Salt therapy, as it is also called, mimics the health and wellness benefits of European salt cave microclimates. We use a device called a halogenerator to grind and disperse microparticles of antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial salt into the air of specially designed rooms and beds, that is accompanied by a state-of-the-art air filtration system.

What do you do in a salt therapy session? Nothing. That’s part of its effectiveness. All you have to do is relax and breathe. Rest, meditate, read a book or take a nap. It’s all up to you. Doing nothing never had such wonderful results.

A Season for Relief

The salt air helps clear the lungs of allergens and impurities to promote better breathing and sleeping. The microparticles absorb toxins from the skin and pull moisture to its surface. Our clients have reported feeling “cleansed and relaxed” with better respiratory function after springtime salt therapy.

This spring, as your body adjusts to changing temperatures and humidity, try a session of relaxing and fortifying halotherapy. Your body may thank you afterward.
