Numbers 11 and 17 on the Periodic Table of Elements are pretty important to Amy Boriack. They have been for a long time now. Not separately, of course. Together. Representing a 1:1 ratio of sodium and chloride ions, sodium chloride is Amy’s bread and butter. Or, more approximately: her table salt.
Introduced to the concept of halotherapy by a friend, Amy and her daughter sought out the treatment a few years back to help kick a lingering cold. “Sure enough, a couple of sessions sent it down the road, and since then with regular use, we’ve managed to avoid many bugs altogether.” Amy was sold. Avoiding the more unnatural over-the-counter remedies and finding the therapy interesting was all it took. In business now for a few months, Amy opened the doors to Coastal Salt with high hopes of minimizing her client’s stress, opening up their airways, and clearing out bacteria and inflammation from their skin.
“Salt has incredible healing properties”, says Amy. “It brings moisture to your top dermal layer, stimulates microcirculation, impacts oxygen levels, and boosts cellular activity.” It sounds too good to be true, honestly. Breathing salt-infused air deeply into the lungs enhances cellular activity in the smallest tubules in your respiratory system, boosting oxygen levels and settling gently on your lips and skin. Impossible to see or smell, your time in the cabin is free of anxiety, “and you’re welcome to read, meditate, or simply relax.”
“The salt is heated and ground by a halogenerator,” says Amy. “The microparticulate is absorbed or respirated and opens the airways, loosens any latent mucus, removes any airborne pathogens, like pollen, and preps the body for more rapid healing. What was I the most surprised by? Breathing deeply with “The salt on my skin helped me clear up my acne.”
Pharmaceutical grade salt - not Himalayan (more for eating than breathing) - seems like an April fool’s joke. But Amy’s grand opening this past spring was no prank, and she’s loved seeing skeptics become believers. “Some of my clients suffer from terrible allergies or asthma, and have found such relief. It’s affordable and convenient, and it’s great for all ages so the whole family can use it together.”
Family is first for Amy, and when she started doing salt therapy with her daughter, it just wasn’t convenient to the location of their home. “As far as I could tell, there weren’t resources for this type of healing in South Orange County.” After more research, she decided it would be an incredible experience bringing halotherapy to the community. Backed by more than 50 years of scientific research, halotherapy originated in Europe. Well documented in clinical trials in St. Petersburg, Russia, and most recently the New England Journal of Medicine, halotherapy has been long hailed as the leading aid in the naturopathic treatment of cystic fibrosis.
In fact, long term salt treatments reduce respiratory edema and pulmonary exacerbations without negative side effects. Coastal Salt is bringing the science out of the salt caves. Hard to find these days: a means to a cure without combining a scary amount of squares on the periodic table. “Halotherapy is a drug-free, natural therapy used to promote better breathing, healthier skin, decreased stress, sounder sleep, improved physical fitness and endurance and overall wellness. All with two of the simplest elements known to mankind: NaCl.”
