Dermatitis, also known as eczema, is when the skin becomes inflamed or irritated. It is characterized by itchy, weeping and crusting patches. The cause of dermatitis is unclear with one possibility being a dysfunctional interplay between the immune system and the skin.
A substantial portion of the US Population has symptoms of eczema; 31.6 million people have eczema and over 10% of children suffer from the condition. Our Personal Booth is a perfect addition for guests who would benefit from having the salt settle on their skin. Guests may disrobe in the Private Room, allowing affected skin to be exposed.
Eczema is almost always itchy and sometimes the itching will start before the rash appears. Most commonly the rash presents on the face, back of the knees, wrists, hands of feet and other areas as well.
In infants, the rash can produce an oozing, crusting condition that happens mainly on the face and scalp and patches can appear anywhere.
Although there is no cure, most people can effectively manage their disease with medical treatment and avoid irritants. Salt Therapy can be added as a supportive treatment to see positive results.
Salt Therapy can bring much needed relieve and also prevent frequent recurrence of symptoms to deliver a lasting effect.
Salt kills bacteria and the dry micro particles of salt that are inhaled during a therapy session to destroy bacteria and reduce inflammation. The salt particles circulated through the air can settle on the skin, providing additional relief.
By visiting our Salt Rooms, Sauna or Private Booth and inhaling the saline aerosol, you can find safe and natural relief. Guests can reduce the need for medication and can also strengthen the immune system to prolong remission times and improve the ability to live well.
Depending on age and severity, 15-20 sessions are recommended for long term results with the initial sessions close together. 2-3 sessions a week are suggested for the first month to notice results and the remainder of the sessions may be spaced out further, based on desired results.
Children with eczema respond much quicker but most guests continue to visit weekly to maintain results.
