EQUINE SALT THERAPY – SALT THERAPY FOR HORSES

JRs Equine Spa and Retreat Picture 1 112019 Equine

SALT Chamber is the pioneer in providing halotherapy access to horses (equine salt therapy). We have partnered with the top trainers and facilities (Churchill Downs, Santa Anita, Wellington) from around the world (United States, Australia, Dubai) to create a portable halotherapy system using our Multi SALT FX® halogenerator, while others have created salt rooms by adding the halogenerator to their permanent stables or mobile trailers using our SALT FX® Pro halogenerator.

SALT Chamber halogenerators provide salt therapy for horses, which, according to the Salt Therapy Association, help to improve the overall health and efficiency of their respiratory system. This ultimately leads to improved cardiovascular performance.

Furthermore, research shows that as the animal inhales the aerosol, the dry salt goes to work inside the respiratory system by acting as an anti-bacterial agent, clearing secretions, and dissolving bacteria and pollutants lodged in the respiratory tract. Ultimately, this lessens inflammation in the lungs, thins out mucus build-up, improves lung function, and opens breathing passages.

WHY SALT THERAPY FOR HORSES

Humans are not the only ones that benefit from Dry Salt Therapy (Halotherapy). Other land-based breathing animals such as horses have a respiratory and lung system similar to that of people.

And, like people, horses are exposed to the same air we breathe which often contain pollutants, pollen, allergens, airborne diseases, and more. They often experience the same issues including inflammation, extra mucus, and restrictive breathing.

Horses have a large lung capacity and often have issues with normal mucociliary clearance, and, in fact, there are specific guidelines for measuring this excess mucus, especially with thoroughbred and racehorses. A clean respiratory system from salt therapy will allow for improved lung function, increased oxygen-carrying capacity, and clearer airways. These vital performance enhancers may increase the horse’s stamina, raise its energy level, and help it run faster. Horses also face extreme skin conditions from being exposed to wind, dirt, mud, and other factors.

HOW SALT THERAPY WORKS for horses

Once inside a salt room or mobile trailer, or by using a portable unit, a horse will breathe in the dry salt aerosol created by the halogenerator. As the horse inhales the aerosol, the dry salt goes to work inside the respiratory system by acting as an anti-bacterial agent, clearing secretions, and dissolving bacteria and pollutants lodged in the respiratory tract. Ultimately, this lessens inflammation in the lungs, thins out mucus build-up, improves lung function, and opens breathing passages.

The microparticles of dry salt that are dispersed into the air and not inhaled into the respiratory system eventually fall onto the skin. Because dry salt is ultra-absorbent, the microparticles permeate into the epidermis of your pet’s skin, absorb oils, and reduce the frequency of irritating skin conditions. The natural antibacterial properties of salt can prevent the development of bacteria and help normalize the skin’s pH level.
