Recommended Halotherapy Protocol

Halotherapy is a symptoms management for respiratory, sinus, and skin conditions which may help in reducing the occurrence of sneezing, coughing, wheezing, sleeplessness and itchy / flaky skin.  Halotherapy may lessen the dependency of an inhaler, allergy pill, prescription medication and ointment usage when protocol is followed.

Halotherapy treatment is most effective when it is used at least three times per week for 8-12 weeks for adults and 5-7 weeks for children. There is no limit on Halotherapy sessions and they can be taken as many times as desired. You may feel some improvement after a single session, but a series of treatments is highly recommended to achieve the best results. As with all natural therapies, consistency is required to achieve best results and due to varying degrees of congestion and inflammation, it varies from client to client. Just think about this… You can’t go to the gym once and walk out with the perfect abs and body!!!

Based on research for chronic respiratory and dermatological conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, allergies and psoriasis, it is strongly recommended to complete 12 to 25 sessions, preferably within 4-8 weeks. Individual conditions vary based on type and severity, therefore each experience is different.

For mild conditions such as colds, flu symptoms, ear infections or other temporary respiratory discomforts its recommended to have 3-8 sessions within 1-2 weeks, once fever has subsided.

Some people use treatments as a preventative measure to avoid common cold, and other respiratory viruses.
