If I told you there was a room you can sit in, read a book, chill in low light and sort out your breathing and congestions problems would you go? Salt Space in Hove is just that place and a breath of fresh air indeed.
Loudly, terribly and it’s driving my poor husband nuts.
This past year I’m on a mission to stop the snoring, or at least tone it down to a bearable amount.
I’ve narrowed it down to a few factors. Drinking wine every evening. Possible sinus issues. Cows milk.
So the midweek drinking has stopped (multiple benefits there), cut WAY back on cows milk and cheese (only eating goats cheese).
This has all helped but hasn’t stopped it altogether. So when I met Julie Dunn, founder and owner of Salt Space in Hove it was the first thing I asked her: can it help with snoring? YES!
What is Salt Space?
Salt Space is a centre for salt therapy with two ‘salt’ rooms, one for adults one for children. After taking a seat in the room during your session, microparticles of salt are diffused in the room. The sterile environment, controlled temperature and humidity, create a hypo-bacterial and allergen-free environment which can help reduce inflammation in the whole respiratory tract.
What does it do?
As the salt is inhaled, it travels through the sinuses and respiratory system absorbing moisture, clearing mucous, cleansing and killing bacteria. It may also help to reduce levels of a natural antibody (Immunoglobulin E), which is produced when exposed to certain allergens and which binds with other cells, resulting in an allergic reaction commonly associated with Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever) or Allergic Asthma.
For skin conditions, the salt can help alleviate itching, heal cracks and reduce inflammation and it is thought it can help to improve blood microcirculation and normalise ph levels.
Salt therapy is 100% natural, safe and chemical-free making it suitable for adults and children alike.
What happens during a session?
After a thorough briefing from the team and popping on your fetching hair net and shoe covers, you sit in comfy chairs in a room covered in salt, the walls and the floor. Fully clothed, just you and some reading material if you wish. There’s no food or drink to keep the atmosphere dry and no mobile phones. It’s a real opportunity to switch off. The session lasts 45 minutes which actually flies by. I’m not very good at being alone with my own thoughts but it was very good for me.
I started to feel a glow in my sinuses about 20 minutes into the session, the salt was definitely working. My nose continued to run most of the day, the mucus having been shifted by the salt therapy. It can take up to 12 hours to feel the effects. By bedtime, I was breathing easy and clear. I’ve booked on for more sessions, as they recommend coming every 3 to 4 days to shift congestion.
How much does it cost?
Your first session is FREE! It’s the best way to feel the benefits. There’s an introductory offer of 3 sessions for £50 after that session. You must use them within 2 weeks of booking. After that an adult session costs £32 but if you buy in bulk, you get significant savings and can draw them off whenever you like.
Is it working?
YES! I didn’t know HOW blocked up I was until I went there. And it’s most certainly highlighted a sinus problem. My snoring hasn’t stopped completely. Over half term, I have found it difficult to get over there as much as advised (I live on the other side of town).
And it’s not just me. Everyone I speak to who have tried Salt Space, customers, people I meet at networking all swear by the benefits.
