Relaxing in a Himalayan salt sauna is an unique and tranquil experience. As the Himalayan salt is inhaled, it travels through the sinuses and respiratory tract absorbing moisture, cleansing, clearing mucus and killing bacteria. Salt therapy can also help prevent respiratory viruses, including the common cold and flu. In addition to helping with respiratory illnesses, salt therapy can help many common skin diseases. Salt therapy also promotes stress reduction through the production of negative ions to boost the immune system and reduce chronic stress and fatigue.
