What Is Halotherapy and What Are The Benefits?
What is halotherapy?
Halotherapy, or salt therapy, is the process of using a specialized machine to distribute dry micronized pharmaceutical grade salt into the air at controlled levels. This machine, known as a Halogenerator, is designed to disperse a specific concentration of salt during the 45 minute session to relieve symptoms of a particular ailment. This technology is intended to mimic the effects of being in a real salt cave. Come in today to see if Halotherapy is right for you!
Salt rooms and salt therapy are a fairly new practice in the United States, although many countries have long accepted Halotherapy as an effective treatment for lung and skin issues. It appears to help through the natural healing properties of salt itself. We do accept this concept in the US even though we may not realize it. Physicians and patients alike have been using salt as treatment for ages. Have a sore throat? Gargle salt water!! Have sore muscles?? Soak in warm epsom salts!! Need to keep germs from growing on food you want to preserve? Keep it in salt!! Do you have an open injury?? Irrigate it with saline!! Have irritated inflamed itchy eyes??? Use saline drops!! Dehydrated and unwell?? You need a couple liters of IV saline solution!!! The list goes on!! It is not an unreasonable conclusion that breathing in clean tiny particles of salt can help to locally reduce swelling, irritation, and secretions. It was this common sense thinking that lead to halotherapy first being practiced. Over 150 years ago a doctor in Poland noted that villagers who worked in the salt mines appeared to not get sick. He then started sending his patients to the salt mines to heal, and they did. Simple. Natural. Effective.
