Salt Therapy, also known as “Halotherapy”, originated more than 150 years ago in natural salt caves and mines. There was a distinct difference between coal and salt miners.
Salt therapy or “Halotherapy”, remarkable in its simplicity, is not a new phenomenon. Originating in Poland more than 150 years ago in natural salt caves and mines, the concept of breathing in microscopic salt particles to treat the symptoms of lung and respiratory conditions, has proven itself as a 100% natural, drug free non-invasive healing treatment. Exposing the skin to salt therapy in our salt bed or private salt cabin has also been proven effective for many skin related conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Salt Therapy can also be used to boost immunity due to its anti-microbial activity, reduce pain and inflammation due to it’s anti-inflammatory properties and be an effective way to boost magnesium levels promoting better digestion, a calmer mind and reduced muscle cramping.
New to North America, salt therapy is very popular throughout Europe and in some parts of the Middle East. Regarded as conventional healthcare, salt therapy is even covered by health insurance plans in many parts of Europe and Israel.
Salt therapy is safe for adults and children from 4 months and up. Clinical studies and research has shown a 90% success rate in treating children and approximately 70% for adults.
