Salt therapy, also known as Halotherapy is a drug free, non invasive treatment that can alleviate the health problems associated with asthma, sinusitis, allergies, and a host of other respiratory illnesses. It is a holistic method that recreates the microclimate of a salt cave. Dry salt aerosol is dispersed by a machine called a halo generator in a room where the floor is covered with layers of centuries old salt.
A negative ion and antibacterial environment is created by the layering of salt. The halo generator is a key factor in the relief of symptoms for many health problems including respiratory and skin conditions.
The salt room provides a negative ion environment (like the seashore), which contributes to a feeling of well being and promotes stress reduction. The particles of salt are inhaled and travel into the deepest parts of the lungs and sinuses.

HOW DOES SALT THERAPY WORK?
Pure “dry” salt is heated and ground up in a machine called a halogenerator. The micro-sized crushed salt particles are then dispersed into the air in our Salt Room. These particles of fine salt penetrate deep within the respiratory system and work to remove mucous build up and eliminate bacteria and toxins. This unique process helps open and expand the constricted airways allowing individuals to breathe easier and more clearly. Dry Salt Therapy also provides amazing skin rejuvenating benefits when exposed during treatment.
HOW MANY TIMES CAN I GO?
Halotherapy offers the best results when practiced regularly. The benefits are accumulative where consistency and frequency is 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 is safe to use on a daily basis if desired. This is why we have great monthly packages!
IS SALT THERAPY SAFE FOR MY CHILDREN?
Yes! Salt Therapy is great for children because it is all natural with no harmful side effects. Usually children will reap benefits faster than adults. It has also been shown in studies that children with sensory issues benefit greatly from the Salt Room because of the negative ions produced by salt. Negative ions are calming to the brain.
WHAT ARE SOME RESULTS TO EXPECT?
Many patients who have asthma, allergies and other bronchial issues have seen some amazing results in a short period of time. Breathing became easier; more energy was experienced and just an overall better quality of life. There are no medical claims about Dry Salt Therapy but after receiving treatments patient’s respiratory issues and lung function have vastly improved. In addition, those who have severe skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema or acne have also had incredible improvements in the health of their skin. There is ample research for Halotherapy.
