What is Salt/Halotherapy?
Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy (Greek: Halos – salt; therapy – treatment) or Speleotherapy (Greek: Speleon – cave; therapy – treatment)
originated in salt caves and mines of Poland and Russia. Doctors noticed that the miners rarely got sick or had skin disorders. Salt therapy has
been used for centuries and recently more and more studies have been done to better understand how it works.
Halotherapy is an all natural approach to healing with a 75-95% efficacy rate. Pharmaceutical grade dry salt is micro-particles and dispersed into an
enclosed environment through a state-of-the-art halogenerator. The salt draws out the moisture mucus and impurities, kills anything that is in the
airway and helps with inflammation both in the airway and on the skin.
Good for your respiratory system: Asthma, Allergies, COPD, CF, Cold/Flu, Sinusitis, Bronchial Infections.
Good for your skin: Acne, Dermatitis, Eczema, Psoriasis, Rosacea, Dry Itchy Skin, Aging Skin.
Good for Athletes: Increased strength, lung function and oxygen saturation.
Good for stress reduction..
How does Salt/Halotherapy work?
Pharmaceutical grade salt is ground up into particles smaller than 1 micron and blown into the salt cave by a halogenerator. Himalayan salt is used
in the walls and floor of the cave, but Himalayan salt is NOT used in the halogenerator. It is not good to breathe into your airways nor is it good for
the halogenerator because of the aluminum and additives found in the salt. However, Himalayan salt is wonderful to ingest. It helps to balance PH, it
tastes good (flavors our food) and has a great many benefits.
