Question: Any good spa breaks for asthma sufferers? Saunas and steam rooms can be dangerous for me.

Asked by MovingMaven

Other than many types of massage and yoga, what other treatments should I look for at a residential spa? I've tried a salt cave to good results; is there anything else?

Try to find spa places with infrared saunas and AC. That way you don't get to thick a humidity that can cause you problems with respiration. Where do you want to go? What country?

That's an interesting idea! I'll re-check listings to see if they feature infrared. I'm considering Europe, North Africa, and Central Asia (short- to medium-haul flights) for Feb.-May 2013.

Have you tried Halotherapy? It uses salt to clear out the lungs? x

Breathing exercises can be very helpful. specific breathing exercises for asthma or general breathing exercises for stress relief.

Thanks for the tip. My asthma is well-controlled; I just don't want to spend money on a break at a spa where I can't use half of the facilities. Similarly, a boot camp isn't helpful. Any other types for me?
