Bahamas’ First Salt Therapy Wellness Spa to Open Spring 2012!
Nassau, Bahamas, January 2012
The Salt Room® Bahamas, the first facility of its kind in Bahamas offering salt therapy for respiratory and skin conditions, will be opening in the Harbour Bay Shopping Plaza in Nassau.
“We are excited to introduce this phenomenal, drug-free alternative therapy to the Bahamas by opening a new wellness spa location for The Salt Room®” – Jonathan Cancino, co-owner of The Salt Room® Bahamas.
100% drug and side effect free, scientists and researchers developed salt therapy (halotherapy) as a means of concentrating the positive effects of salt observed in nature. In the 1840’s, a Polish physician documented that workers in salt mines had much lower rates of lung disease and attributed the cause of their good health to the salt cave air that was saturated with saline dust.
More recently, research published in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that salt inhalation was a highly effective treatment for cystic fibrosis after observations among sufferers led to clinical trials. The therapy is based on inhaling microscopic salt particles, 0.5 to 0.3 microns in size, which dry up and disinfect mucous membranes in the sinuses and lungs, easing expectoration and allowing the patient to breathe more easily. Further, salt therapy is a complementary therapy that can be added to any doctors prescribed treatment and potentially reduces the use of some medications. Other benefits include relief of symptoms from upper and lower respiratory conditions such as cold and flu, allergies, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, sinus infections and emphysema. Salt therapy has proven beneficial for ear infections and conditions of the skin such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.
The Salt Room®, simulating the effects of salt mines, brings a once inaccessible, natural, healing element from the earth to the doorsteps of our urban community.
