How Does Salt Therapy Improve Performance?

Improved Respiratory and Cardiovascular function: Salt therapy increases the airways. Bacteria in our airways causes breathing issues, and salt therapy cleans the bacteria from the airways. Those who take salt therapy have an increase in respiratory volume, improved oxygen levels, improved cardiovascular performance as well as decreased heart rate and breathing rate1. These multifaceted benefits make salt therapy a wonderful tool for those who want more athletic energy, better breath control, and peak performance. The better oxygen flow, the better the muscle recovery.

Does Salt Therapy Support the Immune System?

Cry, and you will taste a saltiness on your cheek from saline in tear ducts. Our bodies are naturally a little bit salty.  But, in a salt therapy session, a client’s salt intake is 100 times less than the daily recommended value. Most of the salt is inhaled, and as it thins mucus, it exits the body.
