Salt Room Treatment for Children

Children are more prone to breathing problems because their respiratory system is not fully developed before the age of 9. Large particles of pollution can reach their lungs because their bodies have difficulty filtering them out. The narrowness of nasal passageways in children and their higher risk of picking up viruses contributes to these frequent episodes.

As our environment has become increasingly polluted, there has been an uptick in respiratory problems for both adults and children. Asthma accounts for more hospitalisations in children than any other chronic illness. Asthma affects 20% of children in Ireland. Up to one in three under fives have had at least one attack of wheezing. This means that a number of parents have been told that their child has asthma and have seen for themselves what asthma can do.

The good news is that children respond quickly to salt room treatments, which are 100% drug free and non-invasive. Whether your child is suffering from allergies, an ear infection, frequent colds, or asthma, salt therapy helps reduce inflammation, open clogged passageways, loosen up mucous, and kill germs and bacteria. In addition, it will boost your child's immune system.

Our children’s room is specifically designed for infants and children up to 10 years of age. Children don't even realize that they are receiving a therapeutic treatment as they are passively inhaling micro-salt particles. They can enjoy the inviting surroundings complete with toys, books, and music. Kids love playing with the salt-covered floors like the sand on a beach.

Safety is our utmost concern, so adults must accompany children under age 8 in the salt room and we do not charge extra for this service.
