WHAT IS HALOTHERAPY / SALT CAVE AND HOW IT HELPS?

​The Salt Cave is a one-of-a-kind place designed to promote and support relaxation and general wellness. The walls and floor are constructed by hand using more than 6 tons of crystal salt and the air in the cave is treated by a specialized halo generator, which infuses the air with dry aerosol containing tiny particles of pharmaceutical grade salt.

 

Clinical studies have shown that when people inhale this type of salt air, it can help to stimulate the natural ability of their respiratory system to reduce inflammation, fight infection, clear blockages and reduce discomfort.

 

​The therapy is suitable for everyone, even for babies and pregnant women.

 

DRY METHODS

The dry method of Halotherapy is usually done in a man-made “salt cave” that’s free of humidity.

 

The temperature is cool, set to 68°F (20°C) or lower. Sessions usually last for about an hour.

 

A device called a halo generator grinds salt into microscopic particles and releases them into the air of the room. Once inhaled, these salt particles are claimed to absorb irritants, including allergens and toxins, from the respiratory system. Advocates say this process breaks up mucus and reduces inflammation, resulting in clear airways.

 

The salt particles are said to have a similar effect on your skin by absorbing bacteria and other impurities responsible for many skin conditions.

 

Salt is also said to produce negative ions. This theoretically causes your body to release more serotonin, one of the chemicals behind feelings of happiness.
