"For as long as I can remember, I have suffered from Psoriasis and nothing I did would make it any better. However, after about 20 sessions of Salt Therapy, my skin began to clear up! And now, it is completely gone. The confidence and comfort this has given me is astronomical. Thank you."

After many months of trying to help my breathing and reaching my wits end, a colleague at work told Mum about Salt. After seeing her results Mum wanted us to try it. Feeling pretty helpless, I did not want to go, but decided there was no harm in trying. A week after the first session I went for what would be the first of many Respiratory tests. The first test proved that my lungs were as suspected. They were depleted with overall breathing at only 54%. After hearing this, panic set in and I decided to continue with Salt to see how I would feel. After the third session I started to feel different. My chest did not ache as I breathed in, for the first time in almost a year. The fifth week I went for my second lung assessment. My specialist could not explain to me why he could now hear air in my lungs, where he couldn't before. I knew then that salt was helping. A month late I went for another test, results proving the affects of Salt, as my overall capacity had increased to 61%. I find myself breathing freely now and it is the most wonderful feeling.

We Undertook a trial session following an Asthma attack recurring in hospital admission. Grace was struggling with a build up of phlegm which exacerbated Asthma- requiring ventolin at least 4 times a day. After 3 sessions phlegm disappeared, by 11 sessions we have managed full week without need for ventolin. (Though we are still using preventer once a day)

Dr Salt therapy has certainly changed my life and improved my health. For the past ten years I have really struggled with respiratory, sinus and chronic coughing. Last year I was diagnosed with MBL, which explained why I was getting regular upper respiratory system and which meant antibiotics all the time. For the past three months I haven’t taken any antibiotics and now my cough has subsided, there are also other benefits, relaxation, time to unwind after a stressful day at work, me time. Karin has built an amazing business here and I highly recommend anyone to come along and try it for yourself, you won’t regret it!!!

Max was born with CF and as a result has a lot of mucous and phlegm in his lungs. After a few sessions in the salt room we noticed Max was able to cough his mucous up so much easier and had much more energy than before. It has made life with CF much more manageable. I cant recommend it enough it has helped Max very much!

It is a far more natural therapy than having to take Ventolin and/or medication. It also forces you to ake time-out for an hour and relax! I really appreciated being able to test out the salt lamp for a week too, on a "no obligation' trial basis.

My 2 year old son suffers from eczema, and has been from the age of 4 months. Anyone with eczema will know, it's horrible. During an eczema flair-up, there is little relief, and this is very distressing for a child and parent. In a moment of despair, a childcare worker suggested I try salt treatment for my son's condition. I'm open to anything non-invasive, so gave it a shot. After a little research, I found Dr Salt in Hampton. Dr Salt offer natural salt therapy rooms for adults and kids. I booked my son in for salt treatments over six sessions. Our salt therapy experience Dr Salt in Hampton are incredibly supportive and helpful. At the first appointment, I completed a form and we talked through my son's health concerns in a 10 minute consultation.We were given blue plastic shoe cover-ups to wear, which my son didn't like to start with, although when we saw the salt 'play room' he soon forgot about the his feet.The 'play room' I talk of, is a salt room designed for children. In that room, there are toys, play equipment, colouring books and pencils, as well as books for children's entertainment. My son treated the loose salt on the floor much like sand. He would use buckets and shovels, and poor salt into the tea set to 'make tea'. This is encouraged, because by playing with the salt, it helps release more particles into the air. I couldn't really 'see' the salt particles, other than when my son would brush toys with the cleaning dusters - this wasn't an issue when he did. The only time I did notice salt, would be when I licked my lips! An hour spent in the kid's salt room would pass quite quickly, and my son didn't get bored during any in any of the six sessions. On each occasion, my son and I would talk about a visit to the 'salt play room', so he understood where we were going. The shoe covers became part of the ritual, and no dramas after the first visit. Sometimes we would share the treatment room with another child and parent, other times we didn't. It didn't matter either way really, there is enough toys to share, and the children's salt room is big enough to accommodate a few families. Did salt therapy work for my my son? After six sessions, twice a week, I really think salt therapy improved my son's eczema. I was told to expect his skin to get worse before it gets better, and that's what happened. I also found that his poo after the first visit, was quite toxic!!, which apparently, is a sign of his body getting rid of all the bad stuff. Here is an image of my son's legs before and after six sessions of salt treatment with Dr Salt. It it suggested that patients continue salt treatment after the first six sessions, to maintain optimum health. At this point, I am going to see how my son goes, but as soon as I see a sign of an eczema flair-up again, I'll be straight back to Dr Salt. Likewise if either of my kids experience prolonged colds or respiratory complaints, I'll book in for an appointment with Dr Salt, too. I can only imagine the benefit an asthma sufferer would have, reports indicate a very positive outcome.

2 year old son suffers from Eczema
From the moment I received the trial, the Dr Salt consultants were friendly and very accepting to answer many of my questions. We received a 6 session trial which was conducted over a 3 week period. Bit of a personal background: My son (19 months) has had continued sinus infections and tonsillitis and we have tried almost everything to improve his health. I was immediately contacted by a Dr Salt consultant and offered the next day to begin the trial- this was amazing as I assumed that it would be a week or so wait. With this over the phone booking the consultant answered all my questions regarding this therapy. Some of these were: *What does it involve?, *Will this have any side effects?, *Do I stay with him?, *How long are the sessions? It involves your child and you sitting in a room filled with salt that was imported for this specific therapy. It has many toys and children/parents are encouraged to play and dig ensuring as much salt is floating in the air. It doesn't have specific side effects by things to watch out for are runny nose, strange or more frequent bowl movements- these effects are for both parent and child as your receiving the same treatment as your child. You stay with them in the room and if your lucky there is a possibility of sharing the room with other parents and children. I say lucky- because I have such an active child it was often a challenge to keep him in the room and other children help stimulate play and kept him occupied in ways I struggled to. The sessions run for 1 hour but your told that 45 mins is really all they need. Before and after each session the consultant checked on symptoms in a very casual and non-confronting way through conversation. This was great as they reassure you the way both you and your child are feeling is normal. They result was amazing- my son had a runny nose by by the 6th session it had cleared up and although he suffered an ear infection during the sessions (he attends childcare so this is a normal situation for us) it didn't appear to get as worse as normal. I also was suffering a cold and strongly believe that my symptoms began to clear without medication after only a couple of sessions. I am advised that you can pay per session or buy a membership and they are more than happy to cater for any needs that you have though a tailored program. During the sessions I spoke with many parents who were there for different reasons- allergies and asthma seemed to be the most common. It really was a busy little place! Overall this was a great experience that I recommend very highly and take a look at the website for more information about specific reasons for use- or call them they really are so friendly. It's another avenue for parents who are wanting a non invasive treatment for their children.

Dr Salt- Fantastic Cleansing Experience For The Whole Family
I had previously heard a bit about salt therapy and it was always something I wanted to try. So when I saw the chance to be able to trial out the services at Dr. Salt in Hampton I jumped at the chance. I was lucky to be picked. It was also beneficial as my 14 month old daughter has been suffering from a constant runny nose and also a chesty cough. Since she started childcare these had been constant issues with her. When I found out that salt therapy can help with these issues I was very happy to have a natural, non-medicine alternative as I am not one who likes to take or give my child to many pharmaceutical medicines. We had 6 sessions with Dr.Salt over 3 weeks and I noticed a difference with my daughter straight away. Her cough and runny nose had subsided within the first session. By the third session it was pretty gone. I was so happy as she had been suffering for a bit. Because of this her sleeping even improved! (Great for me too!!) After the fourth session and after a few days at daycare her cough seemed to return slightly. But after the last two sessions it is now gone. I even noticed some improvements with myself. My digestion improved and even my skin from the detoxification. I loved the kids room as it kept my daughter entertained for each hour we were there. She loved playing with (and sometimes trying to eat) the salt. The staff were fantastic and were great with my daughter. They had a sound knowledge of the therapy and could answer every question I had. The facility was very clean too. I would highly recommend Dr.Salt to all my friends, family and anyone else who I think would benefit from it. I would also use the service again if I think myself or my daughter would benefit from it.

Our salt therapy experience.
Recently my Chinese Medicine Practitioner recommended I have a few sessions in a salt room to help my eczema and strengthen my lungs. My 4yo daughter also has some issues with excessive coughing during the night so I was very excited to be invited to participate in a trial at Dr Salt. It was a great experience, the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and the kids room was very well equipped to occupy young children for the 1 hr session. My only negative, and it is only minor, is that there is no comfortable seating for adults in the kids room. We attended twice a week for 3 weeks and had good results in this short timeframe. The staff explained to me that the lungs would respond quicker to the treatment than the skin so I did not expect that my eczema would clear up but it did get better during the time we were there and for a couple of weeks after. In regards to my respiratory issues, initially I noticed that I was coughing more than usual, which I was advised was normal, but once this subsided I felt really good. The most important thing for me however was that my daughter's lungs would become stronger and she would stop coughing at night, which she has. I also hope that she will be in a better position to fight off winter bugs etc that she picks up at kinder. If she does start to come down with something, we will definitely be down to Dr Salt for more sessions. I would like to thank Dr Salt for inviting us to participate in this trial as we found it really beneficial.

Great experience. Great results.
We recently had 6 sessions for my 3-year old daughter, who suffers from recurrent croup and Asthma, at Dr Salt in Hampton. From the very beginning our experience was great. They called us to book in, explained the process and sent reminders for appointments to ensure that we didn't forget our appointment or miss out. When we arrived, the staff were welcoming and once again explained the process to us and what we should do to experience the full benefit of the treatment. There is one children's treatment room that is stocked with toys galore to keep the little ones entertained for the one hour treatment. The entire room is filled with salt (aside from the toys of course). The walls are made from salt brciks and the floor is covered with a thick layer of rock salt that is imported in to Australia for its therapeutic benefits. The staff encourage you to play with the salt, sifting it, digging, making pots of "tea" in the play tea sets etc. From the very first treatment we noticed an improvement in Zoe's croup. while she was still coughing, it was not as severe and she's not had an asthma incidence once since we began our treatments. She thoroughly enjoys going and looks forward to each of our appointments. She has also managed to rope in her big sister who suffers from ear infections, who enjoys it equally as much. We will definitely continue the treatment program.
