WHAT IS MICRONIZED SALT?
We use a pharmacological salt, 99.97% pure sodium chloride, which is introduced into the Halogenerator being reduced by more than 82% in particles between 1 and 5 microns suitable to be inhaled and penetrate deep airways.
WHY IS IT CALLED CONTROLLED HALOTHERAPY?
Because it is carried out under a microclimate with a controlled humidity, temperature and concentration of particles in the air.
WHAT RESPIRATORY PROCESSES CAN HALOTHERAPY BENEFIT?
On our website you can find a list of these processes, in general in those that require an anti-inflammatory effect that will help reduce bronchial irritation and inflammation of mucous membranes, as well as in the processes needed to help clean the airways provided the hygroscopic capacity of the salt that helps to fluidize the mucus, and its accelerating effect of the ciliary movements that will help to a better drag of unwanted particles.
WHAT CAN WE EXPECT ON THE SKIN?
Its anti-inflammatory effect and the improvement of microcirculation and pH. It helps in healing scar processes.
IS HALOTHERAPY BENEFITIAL FOR THE NERVOUS SYSTEM?
Halotherapy is developed in the so-called salt caves or salt rooms within an environment with a controlled microclimate with soothing lighting and sound. All this produces, together with the sensation of respiratory ease, a beneficial psycho-emotional effect.
WHY CAN ATHELETES BENEFIT FROM HALOTHERAPY?
First of all, keep in mind that Halotherapy is not pharmacological, it has no doping risk. When making an effort, the athlete inhales with greater force a greater amount of air, the problem is that he also inhales a greater amount of contaminating elements and unwanted allergens. Halotherapy will help you achieve an improvement in your lung volume where more oxygen will enter the muscles and improve resistance.
WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMEONE WITH A CONTAGIOUS DISEASE (VIRUS PROCESS AS CATARRO OR FLU) ENTERS THE ROOM?
The salt prevents it from spreading in the air. In addition, we carry out air conditioning control, which includes constant ventilation. Furthermore, in our center, there is a complete change of air in the room once the session is over.
However, patients with acute infections associated with fever or any form and stage of tuberculosis and pertussis will not receive Halotherapy sessions.
WHY ARE CHILDREN IN ANOTHER ROOM?
Children and adults could share the salt cave (in many places they do), but we dedicate a different salt room for them because the psychic needs are different: children love to play with salt, they are louder and can move a lot during the sessions. Adults prefer a quieter and more relaxing environment; many sleep thanks to the relaxation achieved.
But we must remember that the adult who accompanies the child also benefits from the effect of salt in the respiratory tract and skin.
DOES A SINGLE SSSION MAKE A NOTABLE DIFFERENCE?
People who say they appreciate benefits after a single session are frequent, but this cannot be considered satisfactory. To optimize results, some protocolized sessions are needed depending on the cause we wish to treat.
Later on, isolated maintenance sessions can be effective.
ARE HALOTHERAPY AND MEDICAL TREATMENTS COMPATIBLE?
Halotherapy is a complementary practice, not a cure. It is compatible with pharmacological treatments; it does not include or replace them and we always recommend following all the indications and prescriptions indicated by your doctor or pediatrician.
Halotherapy has no side effects.
WHAT KIND OF SALT DO WE USE?
We use a Farmasal suitable for inhalation in humans and suitable for medications or processes such as hemodialysis. It is very important to use the correct salt.
The so-called Himalayan Salt should not be inhaled since it contains clays among other things and potassium in varying amounts. Nor should the so-called sea salts, such as those of the Dead Sea, or table salt (even worse those containing iodine) be inhaled.
When you go to our center we can show you the composition and certification.
