Many people are not aware of the differences between wet and dry salt therapy, and assume that both offer the same benefits. In reality, these two types of therapy have unique advantages and distinct methods of delivering salt into the body that can affect their effectiveness in treating various health conditions.

Wet salt therapy

Wet salt therapy involves mixing salt with water to create a saline solution that can help alleviate respiratory issues and improve respiratory health. Wet salt therapy can help thin mucus in the body, decrease sinus pressure, and provide relief for respiratory tract conditions.

There are various ways to practice wet salt therapy, including saline solutions, nebulizers, salt baths, and salt scrubs. It can also be done at home by using neti pots, gargling solutions, and exfoliations. These methods allow you to absorb trace minerals and improve skin conditions while providing temporary relief.

Dry salt therapy

During dry salt therapy, microscopic salt particles are dispersed into the air in a room using specialized equipment like a halogenerator. This type of therapy is done in a controlled, man-made environment free of humidity, such as a salt room or chamber.

In dry salt therapy, the size of salt particles ranges from 1-5 microns, allowing the salt to reach the deepest parts of the lungs and skin, effectively detoxifying the body. Users inhale these particles for 10-45 minutes to alleviate symptoms of various illnesses and relax the body and mind.

Choosing the right type of salt therapy

While wet salt therapy offers several benefits, it’s crucial to acknowledge its limitations. When administered through nasal inhalation, the saline solution can only reach the areas of the nose, mouth, and throat. Unfortunately, it cannot penetrate the deeper parts of the lungs, where a significant portion of the respiratory process occurs.

For these purposes, dry salt therapy proves to be more effective and advantageous. The microscopic salt particles in dry salt aerosol have the ability to penetrate deeper into the lungs and skin, providing a more comprehensive effect.
