Cold and cough treatment for children at The Salt Cave

My daughter suffered from persistent cough for more than 2 months. She started to use the puffer with no effects. After a week of treatment the cough become soft and rare. The child could sleep at night quietly. After a few more sessions in The Salt Cave the cough disappeared. - Wilma, London, Sept 2018

Our mission is to help your children, and focus on the source of the problem rather than just suppressing the symptoms.

The Salt Cave can help with colds, coughs and different breathing problems:

Salt kills bacteria

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

Coughs are incredibly common. It is one of the most common reasons for parents to visit their GP with their children. A cough is a reflex action to clear the airways of mucus and irritants, foreign particles and microbes. Coughs may be dry or chesty. Most children with a cough have an upper respiratory tract infection caused by a virus or in more severe cases a chest infection or pneumonia.

If a cough continues for a long time, especially if it’s worse at night or is brought on by your child running about, it could be a sign of asthma. Some children with asthma also have a wheeze or breathlessness.

Most coughs clear up within two weeks although babies and anyone whose immune system is compromised can be at risk of developing more serious complications, such as a bacterial chest infection.


I found the salt cave in desperation. I have been going there along with my prescribed medication but undoubtedly the cave has helped tremendously. I am coughing far less and although I still get a salty cave it just shows it is getting in deep. I’ve booked 15 sessions. Definitely after 5 I felt the big turn around, it was here that I managed to drop off into a deep heavy sleep twice after so many sleepless nights.

After 10 hospital admissions in one year, two severe/life-threatening we felt that the medical professionals could do nothing to help. After the fifth session, we noticed an improvement in her general breathing and after the 10th session, it was like we had our daughter back. We couldn’t believe it! She has now had 5-6 bad coughs/colds and has not even had a slight wheeze. There has been no need to use any of the inhalers prescribed by the doctors.
