Eczema and Psoriasis treatment at The Salt Cave

Kiaan has suffered with eczema since he was a baby and the medication prescribed by our GP just didn't seem to work. After just three sessions in The Salt Cave we noticed the difference in Kiaan's eczema and after just seven sessions the condition had completely cleared up. Both Kiaan and myself are extremely grateful to the staff at The Salt Cave and would highly recommend this as an alternative treatment for anyone with eczema conditions.

The skin is a mirror to our internal body and in particular, our intestines. Skin irritations and eczema which appear around the neckline, on the face, especially around the mouth area, usually indicate disrupted intestinal flora. The body cannot eliminate toxins and excretes them through the skin.

Internally, Salt therapy helps to lower the IgE level, a measure of antibodies which is often high in people with allergies. Salt therapy helps to lower this level, meaning the immune system does not over-react to try to deal with the problem.

On the outside of the body, it reduces inflammation on the skin and improves circulation on the skin surface.

Salt therapy is a clinically proven natural, safe and beneficial method of treatment for every age group. It:

Salt kills bacteria

IReduces IgE levels, meaning the immune system becomes less oversensitive

In the UK, one in 12 adults has the dry skin condition eczema while eczema and contact dermatitis account for 84-90% of occupational skin disease. It is a highly individual condition which varies from person to person and comes in many different forms, but is not contagious. In mild cases, the skin is dry, scaly, red and itchy. In more severe cases there may be weeping, crusting and bleeding. Constant scratching causes the skin to split and bleed and leaves it open to infection.

Psoriasis is similar to eczema and affects around 2% of people in the UK. It can start at any age, but most often develops in adults under 35 years old. When a person has psoriasis, their skin replacement process speeds up, taking just a few days to replace skin cells that usually take 21-28 days. This abundance of skin cells builds up to form raised ‘plaques’ on the skin.


The course of treatment at the salt cave resulted in a great reduction in asthma and eczema related symptoms for me. Also, it is a very relaxing environment. The Salt Cave is well run and staff were friendly and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend this to other people.
