Psoriasis is a common skin condition that changes the life cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin.  The extra skin cells form thick, silvery scales, and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometime painful.  Dermatitis, also known as eczema, is a group of diseases that cause inflammation of the skin. These diseases are characterized by itchiness, red skin, and a rash.  Acne is a skin ailment that occurs when hair follicles are clogged with dead skin cells and oil from the skin.


Dry Salt Therapy (halotherapy) has been shown to have a positive effect on various forms of dermatitis, including acute symptoms of acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Dry salt particles can penetrate open areas on the skin resulting in an increased activity of skin ion particles, stimulating cell growth and regeneration. These particles also balance skin pH as well as reducing harmful bacterial and inflammation. After a series of treatments, study subjects showed decreased itching, decreased or eliminated scaling of the skin, drying of small fissures, scratches, and reduction in overall symptoms.

Respiratory and skin diseases are often coexist, and dermatitis is associated with other immune system issues.  The effects of inhaled slat particles on the respiratory system decrease bacteria and improve bronchial drainage, thus decreasing overall toxicity and reducing the likelihood of future outbreaks.  The sterile environment and negative ions in the salt room relax the parasympathetic nervous system, freeing the body from the stresses of external stimuli to promote healing. Multiple studies in Russia have shown salt therapy to be effective in the relief of dermatitis symptoms, and a long term benefit for total body health.
