Asthma is a respiratory condition of the airways that makes breathing difficult. It is marked by attacks of spasm in the bronchi (airways) of the lungs. It is usually connected to an allergic reaction or other forms of hypersensitivity. There are over twenty five million people in India who suffer from asthma. Asthma often runs in families, and according to the World Health Organization, about half the cases are due to genetic susceptibility, and the other half result from environmental factors. Although the respiratory system is essentially in good working order, the airways (small tubes that carry air in and out of the lungs) become inflamed and are more sensitive than usual. When an asthmatic person comes into contact with something that irritates their lungs, the airways narrow, the muscles around them tighten, and there is an increase in the production of sticky mucous (phlegm). There being no real cure available for asthma, effective management is the key.


  • Wheezing
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Coughing, particularly at night
  • Chest tightness


Salt Therapy, Asthma

For those suffering from asthma, Salt Therapy can not only bring much-needed relief, but also prevent frequent recurrence of symptoms. Salt Therapy helps relieving symptoms because :

  • Salt kills bacteria (anti-bacterial)
  • It widens the airways by reducing inflammation (anti-inflammatory)
  • It is mucolytic, which means it helps to shift retained mucous and therefore reduce the chance of infection
  • It reduces IgE levels, which means the immune system will react less to asthma/allergy triggers


  • Depending on your age and number of years that you have had asthma, 10 to 30 sessions are suggested
  • The sessions should be frequent; about two or three a week is recommended for the duration of your course

In most cases, after a course of Salt Therapy, airways become more normal and symptoms alleviate or even disappear for an extended period of time. The treatment's efficacy is estimated at 75 to 98%. Most clients do 1 to 2 Salt Therapy courses a year. In between, they might come back for some top-up sessions.


If you are suffering from asthma, you should certainly consider Salt Therapy. Not only will it bring much-needed relief, but it can also prevent the severity and frequency of symptoms occurring.

I have been an asthmatic for the last fifty years . I have been on steroids and nebulisers for the last twenty years. For the last two years I have been particularly ill with repeated bouts of severe asthma attacks - with nebulisers thrice a day. It was a miserable life always - breathless even on little exertion. I started salt therapy at Salt Escape. After 10 days in therapy, I felt less breathless and stopped my nebuliser. After 20 days, I went shopping and enjoyed the whole day of shopping, which was like a dream. Amazing! Just sit in a room with salt particles and you are better . I have completed 29 days of the therapy and feel amazingly healthy and ready to go.

I suffer from asthma and allergies. Since my condition was severe and present for an extremely long time, I was told that I would have to do at least 30 sessions before I found considerable relief. I did my sessions regularly for a few months as required. On visiting my chest specialist last month, she saw a remarkable improvement in my overall condition, with the oxygen level at its best since 2009, and recommended I carry on this therapy rather than reverting to medication. Since I have been taking no other medication, other than my inhalers, in this period, I can definitely attribute the vast improvement in my health due to regular attendance at Salt Escape. Importantly, for the last three months, I have not taken any antibiotics or steroids for my breathing condition or bad throat – which I used to take on a regular basis before I started my salt therapy sessions at Salt Escape.

My husband suffers from asthma as well as allergies. He was always sniffling and sneezing. I had heard so many glowing reports about Salt Escape and of how salt therapy had benefitted so many people, so I convinced him to try a few sessions. After the very first session, he returned home happy and felt that his head felt far clearer. Thereafter he couldn’t wait to continue with the rest of his sessions. Needless to say he felt so much better after the  sittings were over. His breathing improved, his congestion definitely lessened...I am so pleased that this has opened in Mumbai – I think a huge amount of people will find a huge benefit to their health, and I highly recommend it.

For the last two years, I developed shortness of breath. I would get breathless walking from one room to another. Having a bath became a chore. The discomfort continued till one day my son’s friend mentioned that he had been visiting Salt Escape, which was helpful in relieving respiratory conditions. I took about 15 sessions back to back and can say that I became alive again. I have so far taken 28 sessions and plan to continue as a maintenance therapy at least once a week if not twice.
