Could Salt Therapy Be Your Solution to Snoring?

Snoring does not discriminate. Roughly 90 million adults of all ages and genders in the US snore, according to the National Sleep Foundation, and over one-third of these individuals do so regularly. It happens when your airways narrow, causing vibrations that form those grunty sounds. When snoring interferes with sleep, you can experience all sorts of issues related to sleep loss, from daytime grogginess and depressive moods to being prone to accidents and low work productivity.

At Ageless Aesthetics and Salt Lounge, we love providing salt therapy as a natural treatment for snoring and various conditions that may fuel your symptoms. To find out if you’re a good candidate, reach out to us by phone or through our website today. 

How salt therapy works

During salt therapy treatment, you inhale a dry salt aerosol. This special blend consists of pure sodium, or NaCI, microparticles. When you breathe in this vapor, the NaCI binds with bacteria and toxins in your respiratory system to open your airways, carry away pollutants, and minimize inflammation, which is at the heart of a broad range of harmful conditions and diseases. 

Salt therapy for snoring

We find that salt therapy can help manage allergies, asthma, cystic fibrosis, lung conditions, and more. If a condition such as chronic obstructive pulmonary or bronchitis is interfering with your breathing at night, opening up your airways may help you sleep restfully and snore less. If you tend to snore because your nasal passages aren’t wide enough because of a cold, sinusitis, or collapsing nostrils, salt therapy may help by creating more breathing room in your nose.

Additional benefits of salt therapy

Because salt therapy is non-invasive and natural, you won’t have to worry about bothersome potential side effects of medications or surgery or the downtime often needed after invasive procedures. The salt lounge at Ageless Aesthetics and Salt Lounge is a soothing, spa-like place with fresh air and walls and floors lined with salt, which makes for a virtually sterile atmosphere. Each session takes 45 minutes, during which you can relax comfortably. 

Scheduling salt therapy for snoring 

Each person is unique, so you may need only an occasional session or two of salt therapy or benefit most by coming in regularly for snoring reduction. If your snoring is associated with a chronic condition, like asthma, you may want to consider two weekly sessions for 6-8 weeks to start. Your provider can help you determine your ideal treatment regimen.
