The Salt Room in Woodbury has been designed to help dermatitis sufferers relieve their symptoms and feel better in a safe, peaceful environment that feels more like a spa than a high-tech treatment facility. Dermatitis is a blanket term meaning “inflamation of the skin” and there are literally hundreds of different forms ranging from eczema to acne to contact dermatitis. Over 1 in 10 people are said to suffer from some form of dermatitis. Medication usually brings only temporary relief from dermatitis but can have harmful side effects. Salt therapy at the Salt Room is a drug free treatment for many forms of dermatitis offering you not only immediate relief but will also keep you free from skin irritation for an extended period of time.
Patients of The Salt Room do not experience the slightest discomfort — the experience is very similar to visiting a spa. Dermatitis patients are taken to the Salt Room and given the opportunity to relax. The walls and floor of this special environment are coated with rock salt. Dry sodium chloride aerosol are crushed in the halogenerator and pushed into the Salt Rooms. Salt particles ranging in size from 1 um to 5 microns are ideal for treating skin diseases. The Woodbury Salt Room's have been designed to provide a good cleansing effect on your skin. Salt therapy brings you the microclimate found in salt caves and mines in a controlled environment. A special computer built into the halogenerator is responsible for maintaining the temperature, relative humidity and mass concentration of aerosol in the chamber.
The salt particles will have favorable effects on your hair and on the blood microcirculation of the skin. If you are suffering from dermatitis, salt therapy will come to your aid by activating multiple physiological processes in your body. The salt particles will also kill bacteria and fungi and possess anti-inflammatory properties. As the course progresses, the itching sensation on your skin stops and minor cracks vanish. Salt therapy sessions at the Salt Room in Woodbury will also help you overcome your dependence on prescription drugs. Besides making your skin look good and feel better, salt therapy also reduces stress and strengthens your defense system so you won’t fall prey to disease easily.
Conditions of the human integumentary system constitute a broad spectrum of diseases, also known as dermatoses, as well as several nonpathologic states (like, in certain circumstances, melanonychia and racquet nails). While only a small number of skin diseases account for most visits to the physician, thousands of skin conditions have been described. Classification of these conditions often presents many nosological challenges, since underlying etiologies and pathogenetics are often not known. Therefore, most current textbooks present a classification based on location (for example, conditions of the mucous membrane), morphology (chronic blistering conditions), etiology (skin conditions resulting from physical factors), and so on.
Clinically, the diagnosis of any particular skin condition is made by gathering pertinent information regarding the presenting skin lesion(s), including the location (such as arms, head, legs), symptoms (pruritus, pain), duration (acute or chronic), arrangement (solitary, generalized, annular, linear), morphology (macules, papules, vesicles), and color (red, blue, brown, black, while, yellow). If you have any of these symptoms, contact The Salt Room in Woodbury to schedule an appointment so we can help you lead a better, drug-free life.
