As with any type of treatment or regimen, consistency is key. Attending regular salt therapy sessions will ensure that you receive the best results that the therapy can provide. We typically recommend attending two sessions per week for the first 2-4 weeks to detox the respiratory system and then once per week for upkeep.
The number of sessions you should attend can also depend on whether you have asthma and/or allergies, are trying to kick a cold, have an ear infection, or if you are coming for general wellness to prevent respiratory symptoms, etc. Each person's body is different and will respond to differently to salt therapy.
