In such situations, salt room therapy offers a simple remedy by alleviating the symptoms to great deal and bringing back the patient’s respiratory health back to normalcy and that too in matter of a few sittings in the salt room. When the patient visits the salt room, he inhales the salt particles along with his breath which consistently work to cleanse out the affected respiratory tract. The effect of salt therapy starts right from the day it is started. A salt room therapy presents a pleasant experience to the patient. The salt room is maintained to be very calm and relaxing for the stressed and troubled patients. It has a controlled atmosphere, cool lighting and comfortable seating arrangements for the patients to rest while breathing in the salt fumes. At the same time, it is ensured that the salt room is cleaned and ventilated at regular intervals so as to meet the standards of hygiene and purity of a medical facility.
