Salt Therapy or Halotherapy

Salt Therapy or Halotherapy

 

Salt therapy or Halotherapy, uses a halogenerator to grind up pharmaceutical grade salt into a salt aerosol that is dispersed into the air. The environment is constantly monitored to maintain the optimum dry salt aerosol (DSA) concentration.

The halogenerator creates negatively charged ions which are released into the air and then inhaled. These negative ions attach to the positive ions (toxins) in the body, neutralizing the charge, thus promoting detoxification. (Similar to a Neti-Pot, but for your lungs)

Our salt room uses Himalayan salt, one of the purest and most highly regarded salts. It is mined and imported from the Himalayan Mountains and naturally contains 84 minerals and elements that are found in the human body. Salt by nature is anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial, making dry salt therapy effective for skin and blood microcirculatory conditions.

Halotherapy may help to significantly:

  • Reduce the need for inhaler and/or nebulizer treatments
  • Clear mucus and phlegm from the lungs
  • Improve and strengthen the immune system
  • Alleviate breathing issues- allergies, sneezing, coughing, snoring
  • Minimize skin irritations such as eczema, psoriasis, rashes
  • Aid in reducing the common signs of aging
  • Promote increased absorption of food in the gastrointestinal tract
  • Support healthy sleep patterns

Due to the nature of the therapy, no electronic devices will enter the salt room.

Halotherapy is not appropriate for all individuals.

Certain health conditions can be adversely affected by salt therapy, such as: cardiac insufficiency, acute stages of respiratory diseases, chronic obstructive lung disease with 3rd stage chronic lung insufficiency, intoxication, active bleeding, cancer, and uncontrolled hypertension.
