Fusion Therapy Offers New Salt Room for Children

Oct 01, 2013 03:32PM

A Salt Room at Fusion Therapy, 7069 S Tamiami Trail, Sarasota, has been recreated to help children feel well in a safe, fun environment that feels more like a spa than a high-tech treatment facility.
Most of us have suffered an ear infection in childhood or even as an adult. Over 75 percent of American children get ear infections at least once before they reach their third birthday. Research shows dry salt therapy also prevents a recurrence for a significant length of time.
Dry Salt Therapy works by reducing edema of the Eustachian tube. It widens the airway passages for better drainage and better aeration. Dry Salt therapy also strengthens the defense mechanisms to help fight disease.
Children have no idea they are being treated while they play with toys as if they were at the beach. Dry sodium chloride particles of 1-5mm are produced by a special nebulizer and released into the room, which is covered floor to ceiling with Dead Sea Salt.
Children with ear infection may display symptoms like ear pain, hearing loss, vomiting, and fever. Cold and flu also often lead into ear infection. Treatment through antibiotics is one remedy, but runs the risk of side effects. Dry Salt therapy is a completely drug-free and non-invasive treatment that can bring relief from the symptoms of ear infection and many other skin and respiratory issues in children as well as adults.
