Halotherapy Benefits Explained

Sauna with Halotherapy
Enjoy Halotherapy with your sauna session at Drift Flotation Center

Halotherapy is a health and wellness service now available at Drift Floatation Center in Kane, PA. Being the first to offer this Holistic service in the area, we thought we would take the time to explain what it's all about.

Halotherapy most often takes place in a salt room or salt cave, but at Drift Floatation Center, we combine Halotherapy and a sauna session, ensuring you maximize your experience. So instead of simply sitting in a beautiful salt room while you breathe, you sit in a full spectrum infrared sauna equipt with medical grade chromotherapy lighting. You enjoy two services at one time.

At Drift Floatation Center, the session takes place in your own private suite. There is a shower for your use after the sauna session if you so choose. A Halotherapy session lasts 45-50 minutes, but we do offer 25 minute sessions added to your float appointment. You should plan on wearing a bathing suit or light clothing with as much skin as possible exposed to increase the Halotherapy benefits.

What is Halotherapy?

Halotherapy is 100% natural, pharmaceutical grade salt which is either ground up and dispersed through the air of the room, or is delivered in a saline solution dispersed through the sauna cabin. These microsized particles are then inhaled and travel deep into the airways and lungs. The salt widens the airways & loosens the mucus, which begins to clear quickly. As inflammation is reduced, breaths become deeper. Then non-inhaled particles land on your skin helping to balance pH and repair and restore your skin, increasing stimulation of cell growth and micro circulation.

At Drift, our Halogenerator is the newest technology on the market. The salt particles are even smaller than traditional units measuring between 1-10 microns which means the salt will reach more area of your lungs than any other halotherapy on the market, helping you breathe easier.

Halotherapy and Respiratory Hygiene

The antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal properties of the salt will clear airways of allergens, pollutants, and pathogens. Once inhaled, it travels through your airways and into the deepest parts of your lungs reducing inflammation and loosening mucus. Halotherpay cleanses the respiratory system and removes build-up of foreign elements that lead/cause respiratory ailments and conditions.

Halotherapy and Skin Health

The dry salt that lands on your skin also provides antibacterial properties, and absorbs impurities. Smaller particles absorb moisture on the surface as larger particles absorb foreign substances including bacteria. This process accelerates cell repair and rejuvenation. Halotherapy also balances skin pH and reduces skin inflammation.
