For the athletes out there….Did you know?
Enhance sports performance for athletes
Halotherapy, or salt therapy, can dramatically enhance sports performance by improving lung function and increasing lung capacity and stamina. The primary goal of every athlete is to achieve their maximum potential. One of the most important factors in attaining this is improving your breathing pattern.
There are several known respiratory conditions and pulmonary limitations that affect athletes. These include air flow obstruction, which leads to a reduction in performance; increased bronchial responsiveness; exposure to airborne allergens and other unwanted inhaled particles; and respiratory illnesses and conditions such as asthma, allergies and airway inflammation. Salt therapy is a completely natural, drug-free solution to these issues.
Dry saline aerosol inhalation treatment successfully addresses the needs of athletes by:
Clearing mucus from the airways thus removing airflow obstruction
Providing anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effects
Reducing bronchial hyper responsiveness
Helping to clear unwanted inhaled particles from lungs
Runner James Visor from London, England tried a course of Halotherapy: “I must admit I was rather sceptical about how sitting in a room full of salt would be,” he says. “Twelve sessions later and I am amazed at how much it has aided me in my running. I now find that I can push myself harder and for longer. I have felt a huge improvement in my running and I am seeing this in my times and recently ran a 10km personal best.”
Salt Therapy is the latest trend in professional sports training. National teams in Eastern Europe regularly integrate salt therapy into their training regime. Teams spend a week at a time training in huge underground salt caves, such as the one in Bochnia, Poland which boasts a speleotherapy
