(Salt Therapy)


What is Halotherapy?

Halotherapy, also known as dry Salt Therapy, is a fast-growing holistic approach that mimics the microclimate of a salt cave.

Clients breathe in the micro-sized salt particles, which are immediately transported to every part of the respiratory tract, even the smallest alveoli, and bronchioles. Then the medical grade dry salt molecules dissolve and attract small impurities, the reason why it is called the toothbrush of the lungs.

Salt therapy may eliminate the root of inflammatory respiratory illnesses in the lower and the upper tract like asthma, bronchitis as well as allergies, by destroying bacteria and restoring health and immunity.

How does it work?

No matter how much salt décor, how many Himalayan salt boulders and bricks a salt room has, it is still necessary to have a halogenerator to provide effective halotherapy. Our high quality Halogenerator plays the most important role in providing that effective therapy. It crushes the salt crystals to approximately 0.1-2 micron-sized particles that we are able to breathe in. Our halogenerator uses medical grade salt and crushes the salt to the desired size without producing too many large particles. Large particles are unnecessary waste that usually ends up on the floor below the halogenerator inside the room instead of reaching our lungs and skin.


Why is it important?

Deep Lung Penetration

Smaller particles can penetrate deeper into the lungs, reaching the alveoli. Larger particles tend to deposit in the upper respiratory tract. Deep penetration is essential for reducing inflammation and helping to clear mucus from the lungs, which is particularly beneficial for individuals with chronic respiratory conditions such as asthma or COPD.

Increased Surface Area

Smaller particles have a greater surface area compared to larger particles of the same mass. This means that there is more salt surface in contact with the airways, which can enhance the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects of the salt and help remove substantially more mucus.

Improved Mucociliary Clearance

Salt therapy helps to improve mucociliary clearance by attracting water to the airways, which helps to thin mucus. Smaller particles are more effective in achieving this as they can more easily be distributed across the respiratory tract.

Ear Infection

Ear Infection

  • Halotherapy can greatly relieve the swelling and pain that is common with an ear infection by penetrating the ear canal with salt particles.
  • Salt as an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agent reduces the swelling of the tubes in your ear, allowing the fluid to drain. Over 70% of children suffer from ear infection.

How many sessions are needed?

Halotherapy offers the best results when practiced regularly. The benefits are cumulative, so consistency and frequency are the key. People with chronic issues will benefit greatly if visiting salt rooms at least 3-4 times a week. Those who are looking to incorporate Salt Therapy into their regular wellness routine would benefit from a weekly session. Halotherapy has been used on a daily basis without any side effects.
