Having recently invested in a new salt sauna, the knowledgeable team at Seaham Hall have described the benefits as being akin to breathing in the sea air at the beach, but with the added potency of dry salt.
They say: “salt levels affect our cell activity, energy and blood sugar levels, a natural disinfectant and antibacterial” and as a result salt saunas are said to be able to help reduce headaches and aid better sleep patterns. Inhaling the particles may also reduce inflammation and mucus in the lungs, improving respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, and bronchitis as well as sinus congestion, allowing relief to breathe easier.
Skin conditions can also be soothed by the salt sauna, such as eczema and acne, which can be improved by using pure mineral salts which “have natural moisturising properties and support the skin’s water balance and barrier function by attracting moisture” – all of which is necessary for cell function and detoxification.
On another level, the use of the sauna combined with other wet facilities before a spa treatment has been a longstanding recommendation of therapists in order to warm the muscles and prepare the skin for all the beautiful products to come, improving absorption and ultimately helping you to relax so that you get the most out of your treatment.
