    I would say yes...but you'll probably be told no I say give it a go yourself and see what you think. I know the Salt Therapy Centre near me is pretty busy and they have only ever advertised through word of mouth. They obviously have enough happy clients for all the referrals they have gotten. And they have a drastically reduced rate for children so paying to give it a go was never an issue for me, especially when we were given zero alternatives to treat our DD's medical condition when the first line of treatment was not an option for us.

    No. Nasal spray is essentially salt and water and is meant to moisturise irritated nasal tissue and to irrigate the nose, helping to remove or flush out irritants and allergens. Salt therapy is shelling out $40 or thereabouts and then sitting in a room with salt all over it. I don't see how it could possibly do the same thing.

    Are these salt lamps the salin plus lamps? We bought one but stopped using it after 3 nights as we kept waking up in the morning with sore throats! Anyone else?? I want to try it again now after hearing people say how good it is.. but was put off by that initial soreness..
