How Salt Can Help Children

We strive to help your children, and focus on the source of the problem rather than just suppressing the symptoms, which is what medication usually does.

To understand how the Qi Garden Salt Spa can help with colds, coughs and different breathing problems, let’s take a closer look into the fascinating properties of dry salt therapy:

  • It kills bacteria (the salt dries out all the germs and bacteria in your respiratory system)
  • It is Anti-Inflammatory (Based on clinical studies the dry, saline-diffused air reduces inflammation in the whole respiratory tract)
  • It has Mucolytic effects (loosens excessive mucus, speeds the elimination of toxins)
  • Removes pathogen agents (airborne pollen)
  • Strengthens the immune system and restores energy levels


Salt Therapy helps treat all major processes acting in the bronchi: swelling, inflammation, excessive mucus and bacterial infection. As a result of Salt Therapy inflammation and mast cell response within the bronchi reduces, so the quality and function of breathing improves.

This leads to the balancing of other bodily systems, due to increased oxygen availability. By calming the immune response, sleep patterns will improve and acute attacks and the need for medication will substantially decrease. This means your child will have more energy to play or exercise and become stronger and more resilient to everyday infections.

Salt Therapy can significantly help:

  • Reduce your child’s need for inhalers and antibiotics.
  • Make your child’s breathing easier after just a few sessions.
  • Improve your child’s lung function.
  • Reduce the number of hospital admissions and prolong remission time.
  • Alleviate sneezing, coughing and shortness of breath.
  • Depending on age 10-15 sessions are recommended for long term results.
  • The sessions should be frequent; about two or three a week is suggested.

With most visits, after a Salt Spa session, the airways become normal and symptoms disappear. The treatment’s efficacy is estimated at 75-98%.
