Halotherapy, also known as salt therapy, was discovered in the early 19th century in the Salt Mines of Bohemia. Its effect began to be studied after the middle of the 19th century. Speleotherapy, a precursor to halotherapy, required patients to visit salt mines and caves where they can breath the salty air. However, they are not found everywhere, and the journey to them can be long and expensive. This is how the modern design of the salt rooms developed- a completely natural, safe and controlled environment free of microorganisms. The floor and walls of the salt room are covered with salt and so it remains sterile, aseptic and acts as a moisture buffer. A halogen generator grinds rock salt into small particles ( 1 to 5 µm), which are then converted into ions. Inject them into the room and monitor for a certain saturation, which is maintained in the air according to needs and age.
Negative ions expel toxins from the body and stimulate the microscopic fibers in the airways, which take care of purifying the air we ingest before it reaches the lungs. Ionization releases calcium, iron and magnesium into the air, which is also absorbed by inhalation.
Research has found that after just a few sessions improvements such as reduced mucus, cough, improved breathing can be noticed by 85% of patients with moderate asthma symptoms and 76% of those with acute asthma after the study were starting to breath normally.
Dry sodium chloride also has a beneficial effect on skin problems such as psoriasis, eczema, rashes, etc. Studies show improvement in 65-75% of patients with dermatitis, who no longer complain of itching and small wounds start to heal faster.
Halotherapy is suitable for people of all ages. Conducting a full course of 10-20 procedures will improve your respiratory system, will have a beneficial effect on your skin and nervous system, will improve your immunity and you will be more resistant to infectious diseases.
Children are often sensitive to pollution and allergens, especially in big cities with heavy traffic. Their reflexes in regulating secretions such as exhalation and coughing are not fully developed. Mucus retention is a prerequisite for the development of bacterial infections. Salt therapy in a controlled environment is an exceptional solution for dealing with persistent, long-lasting and annoying problems at this young age.
In the salt room one can find coziness, cleanliness and relaxing atmosphere that are suitable for people of all ages. With a series of a dozen procedures you can receive relief of chronic symptoms or preventive therapy against seasonal diseases.
