Salt Therapy for Children
Why not try this 100% natural method of healing with Salt Therapy before starting your children on long-term medication, where the hormone content of many drugs can cause serious and dangerous side-effects?
Long Term Health Improvements
Children are more prone to breathing problems because their respiratory system is not fully developed before the age of nine. Large airborne particles can reach their lungs because their bodies have difficulty filtering them out. The narrowness of nasal passageways in children and their higher risk of picking up viruses contributes to these frequent episodes. The good news is that clinical trials have shown that children react very quickly, effectively and intensively to salt room treatments.
As a result of Salt Therapy, inflammation and mast cell response within the bronchi reduces so the quality and function of breathing improves. This leads to the balancing of other bodily systems, due to increased oxygen availability. Thanks to the desensitisation of the immune response, sleep patterns will improve and acute attacks and the need for medication will substantially decrease. This means the child will have more energy to play or exercise and become stronger and more resilient to every day infections.
Seperate Salt Room Times for Children
Children's and adults' needs are very different during Salt Therapy. While adults prefer a quiet environment with soothing music to relax, read or sleep, children are happy to play with toys. To satisfy both needs our clinic has two dedicated salt rom times: one for children, one for adults. The Children's Salt Room has plenty of toys and a portable cot. Children are free to play and do not even realise that they are having a treatment. Children also bring along their own toys!
Adults must accompany children under 13 years of age and we do not charge extra for this service.
Please note that Salt Therapy is recommended from the age of 6 months.
