Salt Therapy for Sport Performance Enhancement
When you want to win, you need that edge. As an athlete, you know that every advantage counts. Halot
The primary goal of every athlete is to achieve their absolute, maximum potential. One of the most important determinants of whether this is possible is an optimum breathing pattern and lung capacity.Poor breathing patterns:
Reduce stamina and performance
Increase the likelihood of injury in training and competition
Increase the production of lactic acid and subsequently leave the athlete with residual muscle soreness
Increase the occurrence of cramps
Greatly increase recovery time
Limit gaseous exchange in the lungs
Elevate the heart rate
Deplete energy levels
Contribute to poor sleep patterns
Dry, diffused, saline air inhalation or Halotherapy successfully addresses all of these factors.
The aim of Halotherapy / Salt Therapy, as part of an active sports programme, is to increase lung function and breathing capacity.
Athletes find that once they have optimised their breathing, they can achieve better performance, using less breath. This means they have more air in reserve to achieve outstanding performance.
Clinical Trials have shown that Halotherapy is effective:
To clear mucous from the airways thus removing airflow obstruction
To enhance the mucous clearance mechanism in both asthmatic and healthy subjects
To maintain clear airways
To provide anti-inflammatory and bactericidal effects in the whole respiratory tract
To reduce bronchial sensitisation and improve lung function
To help clear unwanted, inhaled particles from respiratory tract
As a drug-free treatment for asthma, bronchitis, Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and sinusitis
Thus, integrating Halotherapy into your training routine can induce better lung function, improve performance and, while preventing and treating many underlying respiratory weaknesses among athletes.
