Salt Therapy in New Zealand
Salt Therapy offers an ideal service for people living in New Zealand.
- New Zealand has high humidity levels and high prevalence of respiratory tract infections, allergies and chronic respiratory conditions.
- Our rates of hospital admissions from asthma in New Zealand during 2013 were as follows: under 15 years: 431 out of 1,000 head of population, 15-29 years: 128 out of 1,000, 30-64 years: 104 out of 1,000 and 65+ years: 89 out of 1,000.
- There is a four times greater risk of admission of child under 15 year due to asthma.
- There is also a very high rate of hospitalisations in New Zealand from bronchiolitis in the under one year age group (75 per 1,000: data from Ministry of Health 2006-2010).
Such a high rate of respiratory illness is a burden on the families concerned and to the New Zealand health budget. Clients with respiratory ailments may find that they will benefit from our Salt Therapy service.
