Salt Therapy for Allergies

Allergies are so uncomfortable… constant runny nose, sneezing, itchy teary eyes, and that sporadic cough that catches you off-guard.  

Allergies have reached new heights – like never before – seasonal allergies are beginning to affect people that have never before been disturbed by allergies. People who already have bad allergies are looking at their health being considerably compromised. The Steamboat Pilot has reported that this year is going to be the worst year for pollen/allergies in Colorado history – reporting that over 20,000 people in Colorado alone will suffer from severe seasonal allergies this spring.

Sitting in the salt room (for some people) is not a luxury – it’s a necessity. A non-pharmaceutical approach to treating allergens.  Salt therapy (aka halotherapy) is a natural treatment which reduces the symptoms, severity, and frequency of allergies. When the body breaths in the exact right size of salt particle, the salt is able to absorb these allergens like a sponge and your body them removes them from your respiratory tract.

Here WHY halotherapy helps with allergies:

  1. Flushes out allergens and pollutants

The main way that people are being exposed to allergens (like pollen) is by breathing it in… those allergens can then get “stuck” in your respiratory track and the body has an allergic reaction while trying to expel it. This dry salt serves as a sponge-like mechanism to absorb said allergens.

  1. Reduce inflammation in the airways

Salt is naturally anti-inflammatory. That’s why many people use turn to Epsom salts to soak sore muscles. Unlike a wet bath soak, our salt rooms are a dry salt. This allows the dry salt particles to travel deep into your sinuses and respiratory system. These particles, when inhaled, help reduce the inflammation on a cellular level.

  1. Antibacterial

Salt is also naturally antibacterial… There are many bacteria’s in the air that may trigger or complicate an allergy. The microscopic dry salt particles reduce bacterial growth. In addition, salt particles also kill off and absorb bacteria, clearing them out from the airways.

  1. Increase oxygen intake

The salt particles work like a cleaning agent to break up the mucus in your respiratory tract – from your upper sinuses deep into your lungs. By removing this mucous, your body will be able to allow more oxygen to flow to the remainder of your body.

** Other tricks that we have found help to treat allergens include eyebright vitamins + local honey.

Bridal Services

Many women dream of their wedding day their entire lives. Naturally, perfect skin is a MUST for the big day!

After your other half pops the question, the feelings of joy and excitement can quickly change to stress about planning the party of your dreams.  Our estheticians goal is to help alleviate some of the stress by taking care of your beauty and skin care needs.

Most often weddings are planned between six months to one year out… coincidentally, the perfect amount of time to transform the skin. Consider working with an esthetician to develop a skin care regimen and treatment plan to make any desired corrections or improvements in the skin before your wedding day.

Skin, Inc. a national skin care publication recommends that brides (and grooms) receive professional guidance on these three services leading up to their wedding day

1.  Skin Care Radiance – Skin care is one of the most important and nurturing things we can do for ourselves. Preventing signs of aging, reducing acne, balancing skin tone, and preserving even skin tones are just a few of the concerns people have.

*At Waterside Day Spa & Salon, we recommend doing a series of skin care peels (3-6, depending on your goals and timeline) up to 60 days before your big event. About three to four weeks before your event, we suggest an oxygenating facial to gently continue exfoliation, while also plumping, hydrating, and reducing any redness.

*Feel free to give us a call at 970-875-0271 to learn more about the Bridal Prep Packages that we offer and to put together a customized skin care regimen.

2.  Lash + Brow WOW – Something as simple as a great brow shaping can transform the face. Beyond a beautiful brow wax, we also offer brow and lash tinting with a vegetable based dye that lasts 3 – 4 weeks. Also at Waterside, we offer Lash Lifts, which are a keratin based “perm” for the lashes that curls and lasts 6 – 8 weeks

3.  Wax Away Worries – Think about the days before your wedding and leading up to the honeymoon… the last thing you want to worry about is trying to remember whether or not you shaved your legs or risk dancing at your big celebration and forgot to shave your armpits! This also might be a good time for ladies to get a little more adventurous with bikini or Brazilian waxes and for gentlemen to try waxing new areas like ears, nose, or back.

We love seeing what good self care can do for our clients happiness and self esteem… making our guests feel incredible is why all of the service providers at Waterside Day Spa enjoy what we do so much!
