Plano, Texas, June 2011Salt Escape, the first facility of its kind in Texas offering salt therapy for respiratory and skin conditions, is celebrating its grand opening in July with a week-long open house.
According to Jim Rizzuto, owner of Salt Escape, “Salt room therapy is so new to the U.S., not just Texas alone, so we are excited to open our doors and educate the community on this amazing, drug-free alternative therapy”.
100% drug and side effect free, scientists and researchers developed salt therapy (halotherapy) as a means of concentrating the positive effects of salt observed in nature. It was in 1843 when the concept, on which salt therapy is based, was first published by a physician. More recently, research published in the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that salt inhalation was a highly effective treatment for cystic fibrosis after observations among sufferers led to clinical trials. The therapy is based on inhaling microscopic salt particles, 0.5 to 0.3 microns in size, which dry up and disinfect mucous membranes in the sinuses and lungs, easing expectoration and allowing the patient to breathe more easily. Further, salt therapy is a complementary therapy that can be added to any doctors prescribed treatment and potentially reduces the use of some medications. Other benefits include relief of symptoms from upper and lower respiratory conditions such as cold and flu, allergies, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, sinus infections, sinusitis, rhinitis, hay fever and emphysema. Salt therapy has proven beneficial for ear infections and conditions of the skin such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.
“I was inspired to open Salt Escape from watching my own daughter suffer from asthma with no alternatives other than stuffing herself with meds that have awful side effects,” said Jim. “I’ve been amazed by my research on salt therapy and the success stories from other salt rooms like with our friends at The Salt Room™ in Orlando, Florida”.Salt Escape opened its doors in Texas June 27th 2011.
