Dry Salt Therapy For Seniors

How Salt Therapy is particularly good for Seniors

Improved Lung Function with Salt Therapy

Respiratory difficulties and disease along with skin conditions and ageing are common problems in seniors that often can affect both health and quality of life.

As we age a gradual decline in lung function often occurs. This is noticeable when there is a decrease in the maximum amount of air that an individual can breathe out after inhaling as much air as possible. As we age our bones can thin and change shape, affecting the shape and strength of our rib cage and our expansion potential. Our respiratory muscles can also weaken, making it difficult to keep the airway totally open.

Issues that can lead to breathing problems can be caused by something as common as:

  • Cold                      

  • Allergies                          

  • Sinus problems


Or more serious conditions such as:

  • COPD                   

  • Asthma                           

  • Bronchitis

Improved Skin Quality with Salt Therapy

Ageing can also create skin conditions through the loss of oil glands, which keep the skin soft, producing the common skin problem affecting the elderly – dry flaking skin. This can create irritating itch or can be severe with bleeding.

This includes skin condition such as:

  • Dermatitis  

  • Eczema       

  • Roseacea    

  • Psoriasis

How dry salt therapy works for seniors

Dry salt therapy utilises a machine called a halogenerator, which grinds pure salt into breathable micro-particles and dispenses a dry salt aerosol into the air of the salt room. Dry salt can go deep into the recesses of an individuals lungs, absorbs impurities from the body, and helps to break up mucous so the body can eliminate the toxins.


Clean lungs bring more oxygen into the body to provide energy, impact every organ in the body, and improve overall wellbeing.


The salt also is able to provide a normalization of skin PH and induces reparative and regenerative processes in the derma, increases skin rigidity, stimulates growth, and improves hair health.
