The Salt Caves - A Breath of Salt Air


People with chest and skin complaints will be pleased to know that they no longer have to journey to the coast for a breath of salt air now that a salt therapy clinic has opened in Milton Keynes.  The Salt Cave at Old Stratford offers the healing properties of salt for those who suffer from respiratory and skin problems.  From the Romans onwards salt therapy has been thought to alleviate a wide variety of conditions.  In the middle of the nineteenth century a Polish doctor realised that workers from salt mines lived longer and healthier lives than their coal mining colleagues.  Salt therapy generated in a controlled environment began in 1989.

Salt therapy has been claimed to reduce and decrease inflammation and bacterial growth, loosen and shift mucus, detox the body and boost the immune system.  It is especially beneficial for those with bronchial or nasal problems.  “Inhalation of salt aerosol is clinically proven to cleanse the respiratory system and to speed up the elimination of toxins,” says Linh, co owner of the The Salt Cave at Old Stratford.  “A Russian research study published in 1995 showed an improvement in the clinical state of 85% of patients with mild and moderate asthma, 75% of severe asthma cases and 98% of those with chronic bronchitis.” Each session lasts an hour, allowing patients to inhale negatively ionised dry aerosol micro particles of salt deeply into the lungs.  “In order to receive the greatest benefit you need several sessions,” says Linh, “But we will advise each individual client, depending on their condition, the recommended number and frequency of their visits to the Salt Cave.”
