Salt Therapy for Sport Performance Enhancement

When you want to win, you need that edge. As an athlete, you know that every advantage counts. Halotherapy /Salt Therapy for Sports Performance Enhancement can help you get that edge over the competition. The primary goal of every athlete is to achieve their absolute, maximum potential. One of the most important determinants of whether this is possible is an optimum breathing pattern and lung capacity.

Poor breathing patterns:

  • Reduce stamina and performance
  • Increase the likelihood of injury in training and competition
  • Increase the production of lactic acid and subsequently leave the athlete with residual muscle soreness
  • Increase dehydration
  • Increase the occurrence of cramps
  • Greatly increase recovery time
  • Limit gaseous  exchange in the lungs
  • Elevate the heart rate
  • Increase anxiety
  • Decrease concentration
  • Deplete energy levels
  • Contribute to poor sleep patterns

Dry, diffused, saline air inhalation or Halotherapy successfully addresses all of these factors.

The aim of Halotherapy / Salt Therapy, as part of an active sports programme, is to increase lung function and breathing capacity.

Athletes find that once they have optimised their breathing, they can achieve better performance, using less breath. This means they have more air in reserve to achieve outstanding performance.

Clinical Trials have shown that Halotherapy is effective:

  • To clear mucous from the airways thus removing airflow obstruction
  • To enhance the mucous clearance mechanism in both asthmatic and healthy subjects
  • To maintain clear airways
  • To provide anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effects in the whole respiratory tract
  • To reduce bronchial sensitisation and improve lung function
  • To help clear unwanted, inhaled particles from respiratory tract
  • As a drug-free treatment for asthma, bronchitis, Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and sinusitis

Thus, integrating Halotherapy into your training routine can induce better lung function, improve performance and, while preventing and treating many underlying respiratory weaknesses among athletes.
