Based on your condition and symptoms, this can vary. For best results, we recommend a series of treatments. Some individuals prefer to use dry salt therapy as a continuous preventative measure.
There are no harmful side effects of dry salt therapy. The treatment is completely natural. A slight cough or a runny nose is possible, and some people might experience a mild tickle in the throat or an increase in coughing due to excess mucus buildup, but this is simply an indication the salt therapy is working to remove mucus and toxins from the lungs and airways.

Not all salts are created equal. Only 99.9% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride (salt) is to be used with halogenerators, which are the machines that crush and grind the salt into microscopic particles and disperse into the salt room or cave. All the clinical studies and research for halotherapy involve only using 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride. This salt comes from the eart and seas but goes through a process eliminating and removing all debris and contaminants. It is not processed with any additives or caking agents such as table salt. Other types of salts are often used as a decor element such as Himalayan salt, but only 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride is used in the halogenerator.
