Performance

Performance enhancing air. It’s a thing.

Salt Therapy is for those in pursuit of optimal health and well-being, not only for those suffering ill health.

Consider if you will, your body as an engine…When the oil is fresh and clean, the car runs more smoothly. The same can be said of your body: the difference being - when your blood is rich in oxygen your brain, your digestion, your muscles, YOU operate more effectively, efficiently...BETTER!

Salt Therapy is 100% natural and drug-free, it promotes better sleep, clearer thinking and reduces the effects of stress on the body, it strengthens the immune system and encourages enhanced sporting performance.

There are several respiratory conditions that can affect athletes. These include: Air flow obstruction, which leads to a reduction In performance; Exposure to airborne allergens and other unwanted inhaled particles; & respiratory illnesses and conditions such as asthma, sinusitis and allergies. Salt Therapy is a completely natural, drug-free solution to these issues.

“Salt Therapy can dramatically enhance sports performance by improving lung function & increasing lung capacity and stamina.”

One of the most important ways of attaining your sport or fitness goals is by developing a good breathing pattern. A poor breathing pattern whilst training has many risks, including:

  • Increased lactic acid production, which can increase muscle soreness
  • Increased likelihood of injury
  • Dehydration and muscle cramps
  • Increased recovery time and reduced stamina
  • Limiting oxygen and CO2 exchange in the lungs
  • An elevated heart rate
  • Using up energy faster

Salt Therapy helps to regulate the breathing pattern by clearing mucus and unwanted inhaled particles from the respiratory tract, which reduces airway obstruction. It also reduces bronchial sensitisation by reducing IgE levels in the blood and is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial which helps to maintain a healthy respiratory tract. Athletes often find that once they have improved their breathing pattern, they can achieve better performance with less breath. Not only does salt therapy help increase lung capacity, it also aids in speeding-up recovery between training sessions and contributes to better sleep.

The salt used in our treatment rooms is negatively charged. The healing properties of negative ions have been researched and documented since the early 1900’s and have many benefits to the body:

Recovery from physical exhaustion or fatigue - by increasing oxygen levels in the blood and facilitating more efficient oxygen utilisation, and by normalising serotonin production in the brain, negative ions help accelerate recovery from chronic fatigue and speed-up physical recovery after a workout, training session, or after injury.

Strengthening the immune system - high levels of negative ions improve the function of the cilia in your respiratory tract that protect your lungs from irritation and inflammation, thus leading to less instances of respiratory illnesses like colds and flu, hay-fever and asthma.

Enhancing overall health - negative ions can activate and rejuvenate all the body’s systems and cells, promoting a stronger immune system and a sense of well-being.

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 ones in Poland, Romania and Ukraine, which boast halogenerator units with underground sport-fields, basketball court/ and football pitches.
