SOUTHWEST SALT ROOM DISCLAIMER
The terms and conditions written below are subject to change as seen fit by Southwest Salt Room. Please stay updated with our website and email updates for all current information.
I understand that:
This gentle approach to wellness provides numerous benefits, but for some people, dry salt aerosol can cause irritation to the respiratory tract or skin or increased coughing and increased expectoration. To minimize reactions, all salt room visitors should drink plenty of water before and after a session.
A slight tickling sensation in the throat, which can be remedied by hot water gargles or throat lozenges after the salt-room session.
A cough at the beginning of the session for visitors who arrive with a mild, dry cough. The cough should subside by the end of the session.
A salty taste in the mouth, which will go away with a plain-water oral rinse after the session.
Mild irritation to the eyes. Individuals with eye sensitivity should either keep their eyes closed or wear an eye mask or other protective eye gear during sessions.
Drainage of the sinuses and/or productive expectoration of the respiratory tract. This is considered beneficial and normal; this is the body’s way of naturally clearing the airways, reducing inflammation and expelling stagnant mucus and irritants, such as allergens and air pollution.
Visitors with severely altered pulmonary function should visit salt rooms only with approval from their health care providers, due to the possible effects of heavy drainage and expectoration such individuals may experience following halotherapy. After sessions, those with severe obstructive pulmonary function might experience labored breathing as a result of increased coughing and prodigious expectoration. These effects are caused by increased mucus secretion and, especially, stagnant mucus moving up from the smaller bronchi that lead to the airways. Physicians may advise these customers to take mucolytics (which thin mucus secretions) and to drink plenty of water.
Increased mucus discharge might occur in smokers and people exposed to environmental or occupational pollutants. Such discharge might appear gray or black, especially during the fourth to seventh sessions. By the end of the course, the discharge should be clear and greatly reduced in volume.
People with altered bronchial reactivity (asthma, bronchitis, COPD) may experience increased coughing after the first session; coughing should subside by the second or third session.
By signing below, I give Southwest Salt Room authorization to send me emails (if an address was provided) about the halotherapy industry and our business.
