Salt Room Halotherapy

Salt therapy, also called Halotherapy, is a holistic method that reproduces the natural micro climate of a salt cave by dispersing saline aerosol in a high concentration in a room whose surfaces are covered with layers of salt. The dry salt aerosol in the room plays an important role in the relief of health problems.The term “Halotherapy” comes from “halon”, the Greek word for salt. Simply put, Halotherapy is the use of salt vapor to treat respiratory ailments, skin irritations, and combat mental lethargy.

Salt is known to be:

  • anti-bacterial
  • mucolytic (loosens mucus & phlegm)
  • anti-inflammatory

Our Salt Room is covered by wall to wall blocks of specially imported Himalayan salt. It contains over 80 minerals and trace elements necessary for the proper functioning of the body. They occur as fine particles that are easily absorbed by the body. Breathing salt vapor takes the healing properties of salt deep into the respiratory system – which explains why salt miners have always been so healthy!

More recently, further studies and observations have concluded that Halotherapy may be of benefit for a wide range of upper respiratory and skin conditions including:

  • Allergies
  • Colds and flus
  • Hayfever
  • Sinusitis
  • Bronchitis
  • Emphysema
  • Cystic fibrosis
  • Psoriasis
  • Ezcema

In addition, salt naturally produces negative ions, which produce the “clarity effect” that people love from Halotherapy treatments. Negative ions have been shown to reduce:

  • Stress
  • Headaches
  • Lethargy
  • Depression

And dramatically increase:

  • Energy
  • Mental alertness
  • Overall sense of well-being

While halotherapy has anti-histamine, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory effects, it is not advised as a stand-alone therapy. Please consult your physician if you plan to discontinue medications.

What is a session like?

A halotherapy room is designed for relaxation and enjoyment and your only real requirement is to breathe naturally. You can take the opportunity for quiet meditation, work on your laptop or read a book.  Children as young as a month old can also enjoy halotherapy. An adult halotherapy session usually lasts for 45 minutes, while a children’s session lasts 25 minutes. Salt room therapy requires no special clothing; the salt will not damage your clothes or leave any noticeable residue.

For added benefits of replenishing necessary vitamins and minerals, you may want to try our Vitamin IV Therapy – a perfect complement for relaxation in the Salt Room.

How many sessions do I need?

For people with colds, flu symptoms, ear infections or other temporary respiratory discomforts, 1 to 8 sessions can be very effective. For chronic respiratory and dermatological conditions such as asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, allergies, psoriasis, etc., it is strongly recommended to complete 12 to 20 sessions of 45 minutes each, in as short a time period as is feasible. Salt room treatment is most effective when it is administered at least twice a week or more frequently. It is advisable to repeat the therapy 1 to 3 times per year to maintain the positive results. For recreational, relaxation and stress relieving purposes, take as many as you like.

What can I expect after treatments?

Thousands of patients have been successfully treated by speleotherapy (treatment in natural salt caves) in Canada, Russia, Hungary, Romania, Poland, Austria and Germany since the early 1900s. Clinical studies have also been conducted and the results demonstrate that after a series of treatments completed within a prescribed amount of time (twice a week), patients’ breathing became less labored, symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath were improved, and medical drug usage was decreased significantly.
