In most people, sinusitis develops after a cold or flu. When the lining of the sinuses becomes swollen, the swelling interferes with the normal flow of mucus. Trapped mucus then fills the sinuses which causes an uncomfortable sensation of pressure and provides an excellent environment for the growth of infection-causing bacteria.
Acute sinusitis means that the infection develops quickly (over a few days) and lasts a short time. Many cases of acute sinusitis last a week or so but it is not unusual for it to last 2 to 3 weeks.
A blocked or runny nose. If your nose produces green or yellow mucus then you probably have a bacterial infection.
Pain and tenderness in the face (near the infected sinuses). You may experience a throbbing pain or pressure that is worse when you move your head or a pain in your jaw when you eat.
A high temperature.
Other possible symptoms include:
A sinus headache
Pressure in your ears
Bad breath (halitosis)
Loss of taste and smell
Salt is a natural antibacterial
It reduces inflammation of the airways
Salt is mucolytic, which means it helps to shift retained mucus
It reduces IgE levels - the immune system becomes less oversensitive

We recommend 15-20 sessions for long term results.
With irreversible conditions, you may need to come for more sessions as you feel you need them.
Follow up sessions should be frequent, about 3 a week is suggested.
In most patients, after a course of Salt Therapy the airways become normal and symptoms disappear. The treatment's efficacy is estimated up to 98%. Most clients do one to two Salt Therapy courses a year. In between they might come back for some top-up sessions, if they start to feel unwell e.g. they are coming down with a cold.
"A 5-star review does not do justice for how the Salt Clinic has helped me. I had painful on-going sinusitis for 2 years. Antibiotics, which I hate taking, did nothing for me and I felt the pain and pressure would never end. After the first session I felt better. Now, after ten sessions, I don't know myself. No pain. No pressure."
