5 reasons why walking on salt crystals is beneficial 1200 800 INHALEUM

Did you know that walking on fine salt crystals in a salt cave or salt cabin can be compared to walking on varied terrain in nature? Imagine walking barefoot on grass, in the mud, on pebbles or on sand. It is precisely these uneven surfaces that activate the nerve endings in the soles of the feet.

Therefore, if you have problems with flat feet, try “walking” in our salt cabin during salt therapy. This seemingly simple activity hides a whole range of benefits for your feet and musculoskeletal system.

1

REFLEXIVE STIMULATION OF THE FEET

Compared to walking in shoes on asphalt, concrete or on the floor at home, walking on salt crystals during salt therapy session stimulates the nerve endings in the soles of the feet, sending more intense stimuli to the brain. This allows the brain to better correct our movement stereotypes.

2

STRENGTHENING THE ARCH AND JOINTS OF THE LOWER LIMBS

Movement on the uneven terrain of the salt strengthens the muscles of the longitudinal and transverse arches of the foot, thus improving not only the health of the feet, but also the ankles, knees, hips and ultimately the back. It is therefore an excellent prevention against the development of flat feet.

3

ENGAGEMENT OF THE DEEP STABILIZATION SYSTEM

The layer of salt creates an unstable surface that forces the deeper stabilization system and the calf and gluteal muscles to be more actively involved. It also cushions the impacts of the feet, minimizing the strain on the musculoskeletal system.

4

PREVENTION OF VARICOSE VEINS

Walking in the salt also strengthens the calf muscles and the entire venous-muscular pump, which helps to return blood back to the heart. This helps to prevent the development of varicose veins.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF SALT THERAPY

The benefits of the salt itself are complemented by the beneficial effects of active dry salt therapy. It alleviates respiratory and skin problems, suppresses inflammation, supports the psyche, increases lung capacity, accelerates regeneration and protects the body from diseases.
