HOW DOES IT WORK?
Salt therapy is also known as halotherapy, which originates from the Greek work Halo, meaning “Salt”. This is a wonderful therapy which makes use of the salt for treating various health conditions and healing wounds. Salt being anti-inflammatory aids in reducing the inflammation of the respiratory system and also enhances our immune system. Being a natural alternative therapy, Salt therapy or Halotherapy is safe, non-invasive and is also very much relaxing.

With a special machine called a Halogenerator, we are able to reproduce that therapeutic environment and treat those who suffer from respiratory illnesses in addition to lung and skin conditions. See the Who Benefits page for the complete list. A dry salt aerosol, made up of salt particles that are microscopic in size, is circulated in the therapy room where you simply sit and relax. You will not notice the dry-salt enriched air that when easily inhaled with natural breathing is able to deliver low concentrations of salt deep into the lungs where it is most needed. No therapy treatment could be easier.

Other Facts About Halotherapy
Salt therapy is a 100% natural alternative to effectively manage your symptoms from respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, COPD, emphysema, smoker’s cough and cystic fibrosis.

So, what are ions? Ions are colorless, odorless, molecules that are believed to produce a biochemical reaction. Ions can be positively or negatively charged. Positive ions are found to be emitted by computers, televisions and other electronic devices. They create an atmosphere of enhanced anxiety. Negative ions appear in nature more readily than positive ions. Negative ions are found in moving water, such as waterfall, rivers and the ocean. Plants are also a good source of negative ions.
During your salt session, you will be surrounded by negative ions. Negative ions boost serotonin or “feel good” chemicals in your brain. Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to your brain too, which in turn, creates higher alertness, relieves stress and enhances mental energy. In addition to the salt surrounding you, the salt you are breathing in helps to open up your airways to improve breathing and allowing for a better night’s sleep.
