Salt Inhalation Room at Source Spa & Wellness

We are really excited to start revealing some of the features and facilities that our luxury North Devon coastal spa will be offering….

We have carefully and mindfully researched holistic spa treatments and facilities, considering everyday ailments and providing results driven treatments.

Salt therapy (aka Halotherapy) is a spa treatment that releases salt vapor into the air to inhale and has been known to treat:

• Respiratory ailments such as asthma, bronchitis and the common cold as well as offering relief from seasonal allergies

• Inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis

• Sleep

Some people who suffer from allergies, respiratory and skin diseases say that 30-40 minutes of halotherapy gives great results and offers a drug-free chance to feel better. It’s not only for those with ailments, non-sufferers may find that salt inhalation helps with sleep, relaxation and rejuvenation.

The history:

Throughout modern and ancient history, the benefits of salt have been documented; The Greeks and Romans bathed in warm salt-water for relaxation, rejuvenation and also to heal a variety of skin conditions. But it was in 1843 that a Polish physician, Dr F. Bochkowsky, discovered that salt miners rarely suffered from respiratory diseases and linked the inhalation of salty air to health benefits.

How does salt therapy work?

Nola7 Salt Inhalation Rooms are based on the inhalation of particles resembling the conditions in salt caves. The specific microclimate of 20-25°C releases pure salt vapor into the air whilst you relax in the serene surroundings. The natural healing qualities of salt are that it’s anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. These qualities are what make salt an effective method of relieving a number of respiratory issues. The salt’s anti-inflammatory properties can relieve inflammatory skin conditions and act as a gentle defoliant to aid the ridding of dead skin to reveal healed skin.

Top tips:

• Since salt is a drying agent, we suggest drinking water afterwards.
• Rinse your swimming costume thoroughly afterwards, as salt water can make your swimsuit fade.
• We recommend waiting to shower, as rubbing the salt residue on your skin can help soften it and act as an exfoliant.

So if you’ve tried every decongestant to relieve a stuffy nose from seasonal allergies or a common cold and every cream and ointment on the market for irritating inflammatory autoimmune skin conditions, perhaps 30-40 minutes in a room full of salt might just be exactly what you need to finally kick the congestion or relieve your skin.

We look forward to sharing more details on the facilities, treatments, spa days, spa breaks, spa memberships and menus with you soon…
