In a world with never ending stressors, it’s becoming more important to carve out little moments of relaxation that we can sprinkle throughout our days. It’s not realistic to think that we can keep hanging in there and only exhale when we take a holiday. It’s much more beneficial to consciously “let go”, if only for a few minutes every day and, it’s with this in mind, that FitnGlam in Mirdif is proud to offer a relaxing salt therapy space.

One for the ages

Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, has long been recognised for its healing properties. The origin dates back to Eastern Europe in the 18th century when doctors noticed that those working in salt mines appeared to have fewer respiratory issues as well as healthier-looking skin. Today, modern spas and holistic therapy centres have tapped into the salt exposure’s natural health benefits by replicating the conditions of the caves – albeit in a much more luxurious environment.

Let’s take a look at a few of the benefits.

Respiratory relief

The best studied benefit of salt therapy is its positive effect on respiratory health. As you breathe in the salty air, it can reduce inflammation in the respiratory tract, open airways, and make it easier to breath. Salty air can also encourage your body’s natural detoxification process, helping to clear mucus and congestion from the lungs and sinuses. In short, you’re not imagining things if you feel like you breathe easier when you live by the sea.

Stress reduction

Thanks to our ambient lighting and inviting recliners, a visit FitnGlam in Mirdif allows you to indulge in salt therapy within a serene environment. While it’s tempting to look at your phone while enjoying our salt therapy area, we encourage you to switch off for a minute – quite literally – and enjoy a mini digital detox. Be fully present, take deep, mindful breaths and enjoy basking in the gentle glow of our gorgeous Himalayan salt panels.

Skin rejuvenation

Last but not least,  salt therapy may have benefits for your skin. As minuscule salt particles make contact with the skin’s surface, they assist in stabilising your skin’s pH and promote healthy cell regeneration. Many of those who suffer from inflammatory skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis have said they’ve noticed an improvement due to salt therapy’s anti-inflammatory potential.

The bottom line

Spending time in our salt therapy room isn’t just a pampering indulgence; it’s a holistic experience that offers physical and mental health benefits. So, the next time you need a reset, consider spending a few minutes in our salt therapy space. It’s a true mini me-time moment but with multiple payoffs.
