Salt Escape, a salt therapy wellness center in Plano, is celebrating the holidays with their second annual Free Kid Salt Session, offering a free, two-session halotherapy treatment for children aged 2 through 12. Halotherapy, or salt therapy, is a drug-free treatment for Breathing Problems respiratory and skin aliments that uses salt’s natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, providing relief from respiratory issues aggravated by seasonal conditions.
“The holidays were usually difficult for my daughter growing up, with horrific asthma that always struck around Christmas,” says Jim Rizzuto, owner of Salt Escape. “We spent many holidays in the hospital desperately trying to help her breathe. What we found out was she had issues around the holidays because of the real Christmas tree and the many mold spores that she was allergic to.”
Children with a breathing disorder such as allergy, asthma, flu, cystic fibrosis and bronchitis are invited to experience these salt therapy sessions to help them avoid being sick for the holidays. The therapy takes place in a kid’s room with plenty of fun space for playing with toys, coloring and watching movies. The room is completely covered with natural rock salt to create a sterilized negative ion environment. One 45-minute session is equal to the benefits of spending three days breathing in the ocean salt air.
There is absolutely no charge or obligation for the kids’ two-session treatment. “No child should suffer during the holiday season,” comments Rizzuto. “We want to help other parents who may have children that are sick during the holidays. We know how devastating it is to watch your sick child suffering while others are celebrating and having fun.” Salt therapy has also been shown to be beneficial for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and common acne.
The two-session treatments are available from December 14 to 30.
