Sinusitis is an inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses. Healthy sinuses are filled with air, but when the sinuses get blocked with trapped mucous, an uncomfortable sensation of pressure occurs and an environment for the growth of infection-causing bacteria emerges. Conditions that can cause sinus blockage include a common cold, allergic rhinitis, nasal polyps, or a deviated septum. In children, causes are often due to pollution or allergies. An estimated 150 million Indians suffer from sinusitis.
There are different types of sinusitis :

  • Acute – usually starts with cold-like symptoms such as a runny, stuffy nose and facial pain. The infection develops quickly (within a few days) and usually lasts from 2 to 4 weeks

  • Chronic - symptoms last 12 weeks or longer


  • Pain, tenderness or ‘pressure’ in the face (near the infected sinuses)
  • Throbbing pain when movement of head occurs
  • Blocked or runny nose
  • Toothache
  • Headache
  • High temperature
  • Cough
  • Bad breath
  • Loss of taste and smell


Salt Therapy, Sinusitis

  • Salt is antibacterial and helps to kill the bacteria-causing infection
  • Salt is anti-inflammatory and helps draw out the fluid from the sinuses
  • Salt is mucolytic, which means it helps to shift retained mucous
  • Salt is a natural antihistamine and lowers the IgE levels (which is the cause for oversensitivity of the immune system).

Salt Therapy is a clinically proven natural, safe & beneficial method of treatment for every age group. By visiting our salt rooms and breathing in the saline aerosol generated by our machine, it can significantly help to :

  • Make your breathing easier
  • Improve lung function
  • Reduce the need for inhalers, steroids and antibiotics
  • Alleviate coughing and shortness of breath
  • Clear mucous and sticky phlegm from the sinuses
  • Increase the resistance to respiratory tract diseases
  • Strengthen your immune system
  • Prolong remission times
  • Improve general health and quality of life


  • Depending on your age and severity of your condition, 15 to 30 sessions are recommended for long term results. People suffering from chronic sinusitis would need between 20 and 30 sessions for long term relief, while acute sinusitis might be relieved in less number of sessions.
  • The sessions should be frequent; about two or three per week is suggested.
  • Most clients do 1 to 2 Salt Therapy courses a year. In between, they might come back for some top-up sessions.

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%.


> Ravindra P.

Immediately after my first session at Salt Escape, my breathing had improved slightly and gradually it improved further over 5 sessions.  I started to feel better and better. Also the frequency of usage of inhalers is reduced drastically.

> Lyvia F.

I tried various methods/doctors to get myself treated, antibiotics every month for 5 straight years (no exaggeration), alternative medication without any results, experienced very limited results through steam inhalation and nasal irrigation (neti pot). However during my very first session at Salt Escape I could feel the mucous draining. By the 7th sitting, the nasal congestion, pressure on the ear and sinus had completely disappeared. Of all the various treatments I have tried, inhaling aerosol salts has been the most effective, penetrating deep within the sinus and providing much needed relief.  I can confidently say that this therapy has alleviated 99% of my nasal/sinus congestion.

> Savio D.

I started feeling better after the first 4 to 5 sessions. After 10 sessions, my perennial cold and spitting of phlegm has completely stopped and I feel that my lungs are better, and my breathing has improved, with no congestion whatsoever. I would definitely recommend this therapy to others. Best part is that this is a completely natural therapy with no side effects.
