Salt Therapy Helps the Following:
Salt Therapy is a drug-free, natural, therapeutic treatment of respiratory and skin conditions.
Though it should not be considered as a replacement for established medical treatment regimens, as a supplemental therapy it is effective in reducing the need for the use of medications and enhancing their effectiveness, as well as providing the preventive measures and rehabilitation our bodies need.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS HAVE DISCOVERED
"I was desperate to help my wife who had emphysema and my research turned up Salt Therapy, so I talked her into going with me. Months later, I say I don’t think it has done anything for me but my friends say other things. They say they can tell that I can mow the lawn with stopping now, they see a big difference in me." -- Mick K
"It's all about MY quality of life," says one of our clients who isn't letting COPD stop him from enjoying his life. Tom started Salt Therapy after being "on death's door in the hospital" some 2 years ago. He came 3 times a week for months, then dropped back to twice a week and now is coming just once a week.
"My oxygen levels have increased in my blood and my doctor is impressed with the changes in my health," he says. "I know this has helped me get stronger, kept me alive." -- Tom C
"I am living proof that it (Salt Therapy) does work. I can breathe easier, so I keep coming. You just don't know until you try." -- Bob L
"I really enjoyed my first session and my partner was so happy that I didn't snore that night!" Adrienne O
"My 2 little munchkins have been asthmatics all their lives, my son has been in and out of hospital every winter since age 2. Often needing ambulance trips and lots of intense treatment including liquid adrenaline. Last year we decided to give salt therapy a try... we commenced our visits in March and attended regularly through to September and it's the first time in 6 years that we did not make a single trip to hospital for the entire year.
Not only did we avoid hospital but both kids managed to reduce their preventer medication by half their dose.
We couldn't be more amazed and still can't believe it. There were also a lot of nasty flu's going around at school and normally my kids get sick at the drop of a hat, however the most they got was a sniffly nose and a bit of a cough. We will never go through another winter without Salt Therapy. I also purchased 9 salt lamps which I have in every room of the house which I absolutely love. I can't recommend The Salt Therapy Centre highly enough." -- Angela G
"My lung capacity has improved 10% since I started coming to Salt Therapy." -- Neil W
"Last year I was sick for the entire winter with chest infection and a hacking cough. This year, I've stayed healthy by having weekly Salt Therapy sessions." -- Catie C
