The Benefits of Salt Therapy

Salt Therapy Improves Respiratory Health

One of the most common benefits of using the Salt Room at the Bellevue Spa is that it can help you breathe better. In fact, inhalation of salt aerosol has been clinically proven to cleanse the respiratory system and speed up the elimination of toxins. This can help clear your sinuses, ease a bad cough, and relieve symptoms of allergies, asthma, bronchitis, and other respiratory conditions.

Additionally, if you are suffering from a cold or flu, salt therapy will bring you relief by opening the nasal airways, killing bacteria and facilitating the drainage of the sinuses. Similarly, if you are suffering from chest congestion, you will start breathing easier as the halotherapy accelerates mucous clearance from your lungs.

Salt Therapy Enhances Skin Health

Another benefit of using a salt room is that it can improve your skin health and overall appearance. Salt hydrates and moisturises your skin, as well as exfoliates and removes dead skin cells. Salt also assists in balancing the pH level of your skin and regulates oil production, which helps to prevent acne and breakouts. In fact, research shows that the nutrients found in salt are essential to your skin, immune system, circulation and body to replenish moisture and offset the harmful toxins we naturally ingest.

As a result, salt therapy is often used to treat various skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and rosacea, by reducing inflammation, itching, and redness.

Salt Therapy Promotes Positive Mental Health

A third benefit of using the Salt Room at the Bellevue Spa is that it can support your mental health and well-being. For example:

  • Decreases Stress – Salt therapy can help you relax and reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.
  • Increases Serotonin – Salt stimulates the production of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates your mood, sleep, and appetite.
  • Improves Cognitive Function – Salt therapy improves cognitive function and memory by increasing blood flow and oxygen to the brain.
  • Enhances Sleep Quality – Salt therapy can also enhance your sleep quality and duration by calming your nervous system and relaxing your muscles.

Salt therapy is a unique and luxurious experience

A final benefit of using a salt room is that it provides a unique and luxurious experience like no other. The sanctuary that is the Salt Room at the Montenotte Hotel, is a hidden gem that awaits you with a warm, cozy and therapeutic atmosphere.

The walls are crafted from over 1400 Himalayan salt bricks and exude a warm, rosy glow that bathes the room in a soft, nurturing light, creating a microclimate reminiscent of natural salt caves.

This unique setting transforms the salt therapy experience into a luxurious retreat, leaving guests feeling not only relaxed but also refreshed and rejuvenated from the moment they enter to the moment they leave.
