Home to Warwickshire’s first and only “salt cave”, Little Himalaya has been created to assist people with respiratory health issues such as asthma, COPD, emphysema, chest and lung infections, and provides salt therapy sessions for adults and children.
Salt Therapy, or Halotherapy, is the use of inhaled salt in minute quantities as a natural therapy of respiratory ailments. It has long been known that salt displays strong anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. A supplemental benefit of Salt Therapy has been found to be significant improvement of many common skin complaints. A pre-booked visit involves a 45 minute session sitting in our purpose made ‘Little Himalaya’ in an exceptionally relaxing atmosphere – no phones, no iPads. The walls are lined with 100% natural Himalayan Salts blocks imported from Pakistan. These give off negative ions, not dissimilar to a bracing day at the sea side. The room is filled with fresh air at the start of each session. A state-of –the-art Halogenerator then injects an aerosol stream of miniscule particles of approx 0.5 microns into the atmosphere.
