Its popularity has grown significantly over the last few decades for several different reasons, with many people choosing to look for natural, drug free, remedies and solutions.

As well as being treated in our relaxing Salt rooms, Salt pipes are also readily available for you to purchase and use at home to further assist a range of problems. The pipes come in the form of a hand held inhaler type of device, which is filled with himalayan salt. The Salt is easily inhaled by the user, breathing in through the mouth and out through the nose. The pipes are completely natural and drug free. Because of this, they can be safely used with other inhalors and medication.
The Salt pipe can be used to assist in the treatment of conditions such as COPD, Asthma and Sinusitis. As you breath in the particles from the Inhaler they penetrate deep into your airways, cleansing your respiratory system. The natural antibacterial properties of Salt helps to reduce inflammation, removing sputum and harmful microorganisms and allowing you to breathe more easily. And helps to induce the natural self cleansing properties of the respiratory system.
As well as Respiratory conditions, it can also be effective in the treating the symptoms of hayfever and allergies. As the particles of salt are absorbed into the body, it flushes away impurities into the system due to the natural antibacterial properties of salt. The salt draws the excess fluid from the sinuses and cell lining, helping to ease congestion and irritation.
It can be a great aid to relieve the common cold as well as the issues that come with smoking. Which can sometimes prolong even with ex smokers.
