Tried and Tested: Salt Cave Therapy

Wahanda content editor Judy Johnson recently made her first visit to The Salt Cave in Wandsworth, London and reported about her experience at Wahanda’s Wellness Wonders blog. She entered the Salt Cave with a blocked nose (“courtesy of the winter cold and flu season) but after only a short time felt both clear, calmer, and appears to have had a good experience.
In her article, Ms. Johnson raises some interesting facts:
  • 1 in 3 Londoners have an allergy
  • 1 in 13 suffer from asthma
  • Salt caves are incredibly common in Eastern Europe, where people with chronic conditions often spend two to three hours a day in “salt grottos”
  • In Russia, salt caves were approved for medical use almost 15 years ago.
  • After around 20 sessions, the benefits last up to 6 months
  • It is particularly effective for children with respiratory issues.
In her article, Ms. Johnson describes the The Salt Cave (which is located within a 100 year old converted church) as having a hygienic, clinical interior, a friendly waiting room and “a room resembling a snow covered chamber” (filled with salt!).

Do Salt Rooms Really Help Fight Allergies?

The Salt Room was recently featured in a news report on Los Angeles channel KABC in a report by Denise Dador. The report examines whether halotherapy and salt therapy can serve as an effective treatment for allergies, runny noses and snoring.
While the report confirms that many patients are finding relief for a allergies and other respiratory issues through the use of salt therapy, it does make the point that it should be used as a compliment — and not as a replacement — for other, more traditional forms of treatment.

Therapy With a Grain of Salt

he Winter Park/Maitland Observer has published an article by Brittni Johnson about The Salt Room. The article tells the story of Katelyn Tinsley, a 22-year-old Winter Park resident suffering from cystic fibrosis who has found relief through regular visits to The Salt Room. After just one session, her lungs felt clearer and she was off the oxygen tank completely.
Regarding her experience at The Salt Room, Tinsley says “If it didn’t work then I wouldn’t keep going because I have so many other doctor appointments and other maintenance I have to do to keep myself healthy. I wouldn’t add something to the list if it didn’t make a clear difference.”
The article describes the technology and how The Salt Room is being used to help clients suffering from a range of respiratory and dermatological issues.
