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.

Symptoms of Sinusitis

  • 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:

  • Feeling tired

  • A cough

  • A sinus headache

  • Pressure in your ears

  • Bad breath (halitosis)

  • Loss of taste and smell

How The Salt Clinic Can Help

  • 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

Salt Therapy is a clinically proven, natural, safe and beneficial method of treatment for every age group from 6 months. By visiting The Salt Clinic and breathing in the saline aerosol generated by our medical device it can significantly help to:

  • Reduce the need for inhalers and antibiotics

  • Help you to breath more easily

  • Clear mucus and sticky phlegm from the sinuses

  • Strengthen your immune system

  • Prolong remission times

  • Improve your general health and quality of life

How Often Should You Attend

  • 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.


The Salt Clinic

"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."

"“I love this clinic as it really helps to clear up my reoccurring rhinitis and sinusitis attacks. I can breathe easier as a result of just sitting there for an hour session. Highly recommended."

The Salt Clinic

"I have had just 2 sessions at the salt clinic and honestly, I cannot believe how clear my head feels from sinus pressure. Looking forward to having the rest of my treatments."
