Mayo’s first salt therapy spa at Diamond’s Car Park, Ballina, provides a 100 per cent drug free and a scientifically proven treatment for respiratory and skin conditions. Salt therapy is also effective in alleviating colds and flus.
During the treatment, a micro climate similar to that in a natural salt cave is simulated. Each session, in the relaxing and calming environment, lasts for 45 minutes. Patients sit in an artificial salt cave and breathe in the dry agent, which is immediately transported to the smallest bronchia and to other parts of the respiratory tract. Once in place it dissolves and attracts the small impurities which are either coughed up by the patient or which leave the organism during the metabolic processes via the bloodstream.
There are two treatment rooms in the spa, the first is for parents and children and the second for adults.
Private sessions, for those who have skin conditions and want to have as much as their skin exposed to the salt, can also be accommodated.
Salt room therapy is most effective when it is administered at least twice a week or more frequently. To make an appointment, visit Western Salt Therapy Spa, Diamond’s Car Park, Ballina. Phone 096 73587.
