What is HaloTherapy?

HaloTherapy is a holistic, all natural, non-invasive method that mimics the natural climate of salt caves. Halogenerator machines grind pharmaceutical grade salt down to a fine aerosol and disperse it in the air at high concentrations. Without Halogenerators, you don't have HaloTherapy.Think of it as respiratory hygiene. The salt acts as a toothbrush that scrubs away toxins and pollutants, it helps to reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract all while normalizing your pH levels to get your body back to healing on its own. A natural approach to healing always requires some time for the body to become accustomed to it. The benefits are accumulative, meaning, halotherapy is at its strongest with continued treatments. One session in our salt rooms is more beneficial than a day at the ocean.

Salts properties are naturally anti-bacterial. While breathing in the salt air in our rooms the tiny particles travel along your entire respiratory tract, into the deepest parts of the lungs and sinuses. The salt dissolves the bacteria/pollutants allowing you to either cough up mucous or expel mucous by blowing your nose.

HaloTherapy has been proven to have a positive effect on various forms of skin issues, including acne, psoriasis, and eczema. Depositing salt on the skin, dry salt particles increase activity of skin ion channels. This stimulates cell growth and regeneration. Dry salt particles balance skin pH and auto flora, as well as reducing harmful bacteria and inflammation. After a series of treatments, study subjects showed decreased itching, decreased or resolved scaling of the skin, and the drying and healing of small fissures, and scratches.

 

Health Benefits Of Steam Therapy Using The Steamy Wonder Spa™ Portable Sauna

Since ancient times, steam therapy has been used by traditional healing systems around the world to improve and maintain good health and beauty. Turkish baths, Indian sweat lodges, Finnish saunas, Japanese steam rooms-these are just a few examples of cultures that harness the power of steam. Even Hippocrates recognized that by creating an 'artificial fever' (which is what happens during a Steamy Wonder Spa™ treatment) he could cure many illnesses. 

Today, most Western health practitioners are unfamiliar with the benefits of steam therapy as research in the West is very limited. Contrast that to Japan where steam bathing is recognized as an effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions-mild depression, chronic fatigue syndrome, nicotine addiction, hypertension, chronic pain, respiratory conditions, and cardiovascular disease.

Symptoms Of Toxicity

The following symptoms are often related to toxicity: allergies, acne, anxiety, burning skin, brain fog, chronic fatigue, chemical sensitivities, depression, eczema, frequent colds or flu, insomnia, loss of dexterity, low body temperature, memory loss, mood swings, muscle and joint pains and poor concentration. 

Regular Steamy Wonder Spa™ treatments can be offered as a standalone modality or combined with other healing therapies such as massage, to provide a practical and enjoyable way to help clients remove these toxins from their bodies. Benefits of detoxification include weight loss, pain relief, increased alertness and energy, lustrous skin and eyes and enhanced immunity. 

How Steam Helps You Detoxify

Heat experienced during a Steamy Wonder Spa™ treatment speeds up the chemical processes in the body, making it one of the most simple and comfortable ways to rid the body of accumulated toxins. As the pores open up and the million of sweat glands start to excrete, the body rids itself of metabolic and other waste products. Sweat contains almost the same elements of urine, as for this reason the skin is sometimes called the third kidney. 

Regular sweating can help detoxify your body as it rids itself of an accumulation of carcinogenic metals (lead, mercury, zinc, nickel and cadium) as well as alcohol, nicotine, sodium, sulferic acid and cholestrol.

Stress Reduction And Steamy Wonder Spa™ Treatments

The most immediate benefit of a Steamy Wonder Spa™ Portable Sauna treatment is relaxation. In just a few minutes the gentle warmth of the Steamy Wonder Spa™ softens hard knots of stress by loosening up all the muscles and allows the clients to deeply relax in the privacy and silence of the Steamy Wonder Spa™. With the addition of our custom, dried herbal blends placed directly into the steam generator your client will experience deeper benefits of relaxation and rejuvenation.The deep heat of the Steamy Wonder Spa™™ helps to relieve pain by causing the blood vessels to dilate. This causes increased blood circulation and allows more oxygen to get to soft tissue injuries and sore muscles. This helps to reduce pain and speeds up the healing process. Increased blood circulation carries metabolic waste products and delivers oxygen rich blood to oxygen-depleted muscles so they recover faster. Muscles relax most readily when tissues are warm.

Muscle Pain Relief

Steam therapy using the Steamy Wonder Spa™ has been found to significantly reduce muscular pain and spasms. Pain is found to be alleviated in just one session and the benefit can last for several days after the treatment. Regular steam treatments 2 to 3 times per week have shown to have profound relief for those having muscle pain due to injury, menstruation pain, headaches, fibromyalgia and low back pain.

Sauna bathing has been used as a thermal therapy to treat pain and other symptoms of rheumatic disease. In studies based on interviews of over 200 patients, 40 to 70 percent of the participants reported that sauna bathing alleviated pain and improved joint mobility. (Source: The American Journal of Medicine, February 1, 2001, Volume 110.)

In addition, a New Jersey Medical School Researcher found that heat therapy was more effective than analgesics for low back pain. Several different types of pain including the lower and upper back and menstrual pain can be treated with low-level heat therapies.

Steam Therapy And Respiratory Conditions

Steam inhalation is an effective treatment in respiratory conditions and is highly recommended for treatment of sinusitis, bronchitis, allergies and asthma.

How Does It Work?

Steam relieves inflammation and congestion of upper respiratory mucous membranes

Relieves throat irritation by moistening the air

Relieves spasmodic breathing (asthma, croup)

Loosens secretions and stimulates discharge of mucous from the throat and lungs (natural expectorant)

Relaxes muscles and relieves coughing

Keeps the mucous membranes from excessive drying

 

Steam Therapy For Circulation And Inflammation

Steam therapy assists in alleviating inflammation and edema. The increased peripheral circulation provides the transport needed to help eliminate the edema which helps to end inflammation, decrease pain and help speed the healing process.

How Steam Works

Heating of one area of the body produces reflex modulated vasodilation in distant-body areas even in the absence of a change in core body temperatures. If, for example, you heat a forearm, then both lower extremities dilate or if the front of the trunk is heated then the hands dilate. Heating of muscles produces an increased blood flow similar to that seen during exercise. 

Temperature elevation produces an increase in blood flow and dilation directly in capillaries, arterioles and veins thus widening the blood vessels.

The new Sore Joint & Muscle Pain Relief Treatment is the best way to enhance the benefits of the Steamy Wonder Portable Steam Sauna for all kinds of chronic pain.

Boosting The Immune System With Steam Therapy

Traditionally, the benefits of steaming include increased energy, decreased incidence of infections, and fewer colds and flu's. Many regular steam or sauna bathers have experienced that a good long sweat bath at the early onset of a cold or flu can help ward off the disease before it manifests as actual symptoms.

How Does Steam Work?

The heat from a Steamy Wonder Spa™ treatment raises your core body temperature, inducing an artificial fever. During a fever, the production of white blood cells is increased, as is the rate of their release into the blood stream. White blood cells are the primary agents of the immune system. As the generation of antibodies speeds up, so does the production of interferon, an anti-viral protein. In this manner, your body's immune system is strengthened as it works to combat the fever.
