What is Salt/Halotherapy?

Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy (Greek: Halos – salt; therapy – treatment) originated in salt Rooms and mines. Salt therapy has been used for centuries and recently more and more studies have been done to better understand how it works. 

How does Salt/Halotherapy work?

Aside from the already rich Himalayan Salt, which is the only salt to boast the 84 elements our body consists of, a salt generator also pumps a pharmaceutical grade salt comprised of 99.8% NaCl (Sodium Chloride) into microscopic dry aerosol particles that are inhaled. This salt has anti-inflammatory properties which open the airways and reduce or eliminate mucus from the lungs.

Salt/Halotherapy is based on salt's natural anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory properties and the negative ions it produces. The rich negative ion effect can be felt in nature in places like the ocean. Our climate of negative ions and abundant minerals and elements packs the benefits of three days at the ocean into a 45 minute session. In this day and age we are exposed to a barrage of electromagnetic fields that produce positive ions such as from TV's, cell phones, computers, power lines, appliances, etc. Himalayan salt’s natural production of negative ions benefits the whole body system and combats the effects of positive ions from our environment.
