Combining the healing properties of nature with innovative technology, Salt Space in Hove reproduces the natural micro-climate of salt mines common in Eastern Europe. The salt-enriched air is naturally anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, loosens mucus and helps to clear the airways; it’s also great for boosting the immune system.
Salt therapy – historically known as ‘Halotherapy’, taken from the Greek word ‘halo’ meaning salt - is a simple and organic treatment which is growing fast in popularity in the UK and elsewhere. In the United States, the Salt Therapy Association reports that there are over 700 salt therapy centres, and during the last decade, they have been springing up throughout the UK, from Inverness to Hove.
Salt Space in Hove is Sussex’s only salt therapy centre and is now in its fourth year of operation.
Salt with everything
This drug free therapy is suitable for people of all ages and can improve the symptoms of a variety of health issues such as asthma, bronchitis and other lung conditions, as well as eczema, psoriasis and other skin problems. And it is stress reducing at a time when workplace stress is hitting record levels.
Salt Space is an oasis of calm, where you can relax and unwind – you may even find yourself having a little snooze - while breathing in the salty air. An adult session lasts 45 minutes and there is a separate children’s room with 30 minute sessions for them.
The growth in interest in salt therapy is partly explained by increasing attention being paid to workplace health. Offices are often unhealthy places and this contributes to the fact that the average employee misses 4.1 days because of sickness every year, with more people carrying on working when ill. Air conditioning can transmit respiratory diseases, bugs circulate among people working together and there is also the impact of stress on wellbeing.
Already Salt Space in Hove has helped hundreds of local people on the path to better health. Martine was recommended salt therapy by friends who knew about her respiratory problems. “At work I have to frequently carry items up and down stairs and I used to get very short of breath doing that, but now I manage it much more easily and without losing my breath,” she says.
It is increasingly clear that salt therapy can make a huge contribution to individual healthiness, happiness and productiveness.
