More than 75% of children may experience at least one infection of the ear or otitis media before reaching 3-years-old. Adults are also prone to ear infections, though this condition typically occurs in younger children.
During a cold, the middle ear space can become filled with mucus and may then become infected by germs. Children who have mucus behind their eardrum are more prone to ear infections, which can happen for no apparent reason.
Chronic ear infections may be more destructive than acute ear infections because the effects are prolonged and repeated. This may cause permanent damage to the ear, yet may show less severe symptoms and can go untreated for a long time.
Salt Therapy is a beneficial method of treatment for every age group. By visiting our Salt Rooms, Sauna or Private Booth and inhaling the saline aerosol, guests can find safe and natural relief. Guests can also strengthen their immune systems to prolong remission times and improve their ability to live well.
Salt kills bacteria and the dry micro particles of salt that are inhaled during a therapy session help to reduce inflammation. Salt Therapy also widens the airways through reducing inflammation which allows for better drainage to reduce the chance of infection. Salt therapy also strengthens the immune system making it less likely to experience future infections.
Depending on whether the infection is acute or chronic, 10-15 sessions are recommended for long term results with the initial sessions close together. 2-3 sessions a week is suggested for the first month and fewer sessions per week after 30-60 days depending on results.
* After a course of Salt Therapy, most children see symptoms disappear. Treatment efficacy is estimated at 75-98%.
