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 hospitalizations in children than any other chronic illness. 10% of children in New Jersey have asthma, according to the NJ Department of Health and Senior Services. This is significantly higher than other areas in the United States.
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.
Children don't even realize that they are receiving a therapeutic treatment as they are passively inhaling micro-salt particles.
Safety is our utmost concern, so adults must accompany children under age 12 in the salt room and we do not charge extra for this service.
