If you think that being sprinkled on chips is the best possible use for salt, today’s Big Deal with Salann Halotherapy will be an eye-opener.
Based in the West End, Salann Halotherapy is the first centre to offer halotherapy, or salt therapy, in the West of Scotland.
Halotherapy is a complimentary treatment for a wide range of respiratory and dermatological conditions.
Today’s Big Deal is for one person to spend an hour-long session in one of the two comfortable, full-sized treatment rooms at Salann Halotherapy on Woodlands Road.
Only recently introduced to the UK, halotherapy has been practised by Eastern Europeans for hundreds of years.
The atmosphere in the treatment room is enriched with salt, replicating the micro-climate found in a salt mine or natural salt cave.
The salt particles are small enough to penetrate deep into the lungs where they reduce inflammation and inhibit bacterial growth. The salt acts in the same way on the skin through direct contact.
Salt therapy is an effective treatment for a wide range of respiratory conditions. From minor ailments like coughs and colds, through to more persistent conditions such as asthma, bronchitis and hayfever/rhinitis, salt therapy can be used to treat the symptoms and reduce the long-term impact of these illnesses.
Salt therapy is particularly effective at treating COPD and is recognised by the NHS as a complimentary treatment for the condition.
Salt therapy also provides healing and cosmetic benefits to both skin and hair. The micro-fine salt particles deposited on the skin act to reduce inflammation and bacterial growth.
The salt works as a gentle exfoliant, removing dead skin cells and stimulating skin regeneration.
The antihistamine properties of the salt reduce allergic reactions within the skin and minimise or even eliminate any allergic outbreak.
Salt therapy boosts the skin’s protective properties and regulates the good bacteria on our skin. Salt normalises skin Ph levels and stimulates the regenerative processes in the skin, increases skin elasticity and improves hair health.
It can be used in the treatment of condition such as dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema and acne.
