The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) affects the respiratory system. Halotherapy helps to relieve the symptoms and discomfort from a multitude of respiratory conditions. Halotherapy is antimicrobial, which means that it kills some microorganisms or stops their growth.
Halotherapy is done in an environment where 99.99% pure pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride is ground by a device called a halogenerator. These micron-sized particles are then distributed throughout the room as a dry aerosol. The salt helps to breakdown mucus and reduce inflammation in the body.
In between sessions, The Salt Nest cleans the rooms and the HVAC system purges the air so that each session has fresh new air.
Due to the newness of COVID-19, there are no current studies that show that Halotherapy will cure or prevent the virus. However, Halotherapy is a safe therapeutic treatment for some respiratory symptoms and conditions.
Upon our reopening, The Salt Nest will continue to provide a safe and clean environment to enjoy dry salt therapy.
