What protocol is suggested forSpecific Conditions

Based on an individual's condition and symptoms, this can vary, since like many wellness and health regimens, individuals respond differently. Many individuals will notice a positive effect in just in one session, however, a series of sessions is recommended for optimal results. Some people go two to three times a week for a three to four-week ritual during allergy and cold seasons, some people go twice a week for six to eight weeks for more chronic conditions. Those who go for general wellness, stress relief, and relaxation simply go as often as they like. For best results, a series of treatments is recommended. The Salt Therapy Association additionally recommends using dry salt therapy as a continuous preventive measure to strengthen the immune system against colds, cough, allergies, and sinusitis.
