COPD treatment at The Salt Cave

I would recommend The Salt Cave highly to other COPD sufferers. I used to cough until I vomited, trying to clear phlegm for my windpipe and lungs. Now a gentle cough without even trying brings it up. The Salt Cave will literally change your life. - Helen, London, Nov 2018

During the salt therapy process, the overwhelming majority of patients notice a decrease in cough frequency and intensity, and that it’s easier to cough up mucus, which becomes less sticky and changes in its nature.

COPD sufferers find that not only does salt therapy bring immediate relief in the short-term, but also delays the frequency of reoccurrence.

Salt therapy is a clinically proven natural, safe and beneficial method of treatment for every age group. Visit one of our Salt Caves and breath in the saline aerosol generated by our machine:

Salt is antibacterial

Salt is mucolytic, which means it helps to shift retained mucus

Salt helps reduces inflammation, which can widen your airways

Salt therapy removes pathogen agents such as airborne pollen

By 2030, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is predicted to be the fourth leading cause of death in the UK. It is thought there are over 3 million people living with the disease in the UK, of which only about 900,000 have been diagnosed. This is because many people who develop the symptoms dismiss it as a smoker’s cough and don’t seek help.

COPD is a general term which includes chronic bronchitis and emphysema, both of which can cause narrowing of the airways and commonly occur together.


I would recommend THE SALT CAVE highly to other COPD sufferers I used to cough until I vomited trying to clear phlegm for my windpipe and lungs now a gentle cough without even trying brings it up. Whilst I’m not sure of the overall benefits to the illness itself it certainly took care of the most major of symptoms of COPD phlegm build up and all the difficulties it causes. 3-4 sessions of THE SALT CAVE will literally Change Your Life

I suffer from COPD and get recurrent chest infections which can be very disabilitating. Since regular sets of sessions (6 x every other day) each month or so I have found such infections have all but stopped and my breathing has eased. The staff at the Salt Caves are great too!

After my second visit it was clear that the inhaler use had been cut by about 70%. Only time will tell about the antibiotics. I was more than satisfied.

When I first walked in I felt like an old woman. After the 5-6th week I felt a big improvement. The pneumonia cleared up within 1.5 weeks normally it would take longer. Also i could do the steps at earlsfield in one go. My energy level and breathing clearly improved. Before i felt week like an old person gasping for air. Life for me was unbearable, uncomfortable. Now I’m happy and hopeful.
