There are over five million people with asthma in the UK. That is one in every 12 adults. Although the respiratory system is essentially in good working order, the bronchi (small tubes carrying air in and out of the lungs) become inflamed and more sensitive than usual.
When you come into contact with something that irritates your lungs, your airways narrow, the muscles around them tighten and there is an increase in the production of sticky mucus (phlegm).

HOW OUR SALT CAVE CAN HELP
For those suffering from asthma, Salt Therapy can not only bring much-needed relief, but also prevent the frequent recurrence of your symptoms. If left untreated, the chronic inflammation caused by asthma can lead to the lungs becoming irreversibly obstructed. Prescription drugs and inhalers may bring immediate relief, but Salt Therapy has a far more lasting effect as many, many visitors to The Salt Cave have testified.
Prescription drugs such as inhalers are a short-term fix, leaving the underlying problem unchanged once an attack has passed.
- Salt kills bacteria
- It widens the airway by reducing inflammation
- It is mucolytic, which means it helps to shift retained mucus and therefore reduce the chance of infection
- It redcuces IgE levels, which means the immune system won’t over-react to asthma/allergy triggers
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I COME
Depending on age and severity, 10-30 sessions are recommended for long term results.
The sessions should be frequent; about two or three a week is suggested.
In most patients, after a course of Salt Therapy, airways become normal and symptoms disappear. The treatment's efficacy is estimated at 75-98%. Most clients do 1-2 Salt Therapy courses a year. In between they might come back for some top-up sessions.
