What is Salt Therapy?
Salt Therapy, also called Halotherapy, is a therapeutic and 100% natural, drug-free, non-invasive treatment. Salt therapy is a method of inhaling pure, dry, micronized salt air particles. These particles reach the deepest area of the lungs, absorbing bacteria and pollutants and providing an anti-inflammatory and cleansing effect. This process supports and strengthens the body’s immune system by eliminating toxins and allergens that are trapped within the mucus lining of the respiratory system.
How does it work?
The word halo-therapy comes from the Greek word halo, meaning salt. It is a modern holistic method that mimics the micro climates of the salt mines. It is created by a special device called a halo-generator.
Dry pharmaceutical grade salt is heated and ground and crushed into very tiny micro-particles in a machine called a halogenerator. These dry aerosol micro-particles of salt are then dispersed into our Salt Grotto during a typical session. As a person relaxes in the Salt Grotto, the micro-particles are inhaled. The particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. Bacteria and pollutants are dissolved as salt enters the lungs and respiratory system by eliminating mucus and opening constricted airways. Each Grotto's salt saturation is controlled and monitored.
Is Salt Therapy Safe?
Salt Therapy is completely safe. It is a 100% drug-free, non-invasive, comfortable treatment with no side effects or potential health hazards. The only people who should avoid being in a salt chamber are those with severe chronic respiratory issues and those with open wounds and sores. It is advisable that people going into a salt chamber remove all personal jewelry, glasses and other belongings since salt can be corrosive to exposed metal.

*As these are chronic diseases, patients ideally should treat them continuously.
Improvement is still possible with less frequent sessions. For optimal results, consistency and regularity are essential, especially until you reach a point where you can enter into a maintenance regime. Once you are on top of the symptoms, they become easier to manage, and less frequent sessions are required.
