If you are suffering from asthma, visit Mayo’s first salt therapy spa at Diamond’s Car Park, Ballina. Salt therapy is 100 per cent drug free and is a scientifically proven treatment for respiratory and skin conditions.
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.
Salt therapy can help treat asthma. The sterile pure air of the salt rooms, along with the ability of the aerosolised microparticles of salt to penetrate into the bronchi and kill bacteria and viruses, can be beneficial for asthma. It may reduce inflammation in the whole respiratory tract, and can be of benefit to the widening of the airway passages, restoring the normal transport of mucus and unclogging blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles leading to rapid elimination of residual tar and foreign allergens, all of these in a natural process.
There are two treatment rooms in the spa, one for parents and children and one for adults.
Private sessions, for those who have skin conditions and want to have 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.
