What is halotherapy?
Halotherapy is a non-invasive, drug-free and chemical-free treatment that is safe for people of all ages.
How does the process work?
First, dry pure grade sodium chloride is heated, ground and crushed into micro-particles through a machine called a halogenerator. This produces a fine, dry salt aerosol that is dispersed into the salt cave.
There is continuous monitoring of the concentration determined by temperature, humidity and air velocity. As a person relaxes in the salt cave, the dry salt aerosol is inhaled as well as absorbed by the skin.
Dry salt is super absorbent, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial. Because the microscopic salt particles get deep into the respiratory system, the dry salt absorbs all the excess mucus, allergens and foreign elements and clearing blockages in lungs, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli. It also kills microbes by sucking water from their cells, dehydrating them. kills the spreading of bacteria and viruses. The skin is also improved as the micro-particles of salt fall on the skins protective layer, providing PH normalization and induces a reparative and regenerative processes in skin.
How does halotherapy relieve stress?
When the pink Himalayan salt on the floor and walls of the cave is heated and ground, negative ions are produced and released into the air. Negative ions are invisible molecules that we inhale in certain environments such as mountains, waterfalls, and beaches. Once they reach our bloodstream, negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the ‘mood’ chemical serotonin–helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress and boost our daytime energy.
What else can halotherapy treat?
Halotherapy has provided benefits for those who need relief from:
Allergies, asthma, bronchitis, bronchial infections, chronic ENT illnesses, cold, flu, cystic fibrosis, dermatitis, ear infections, eczema, emphysema, psoriasis, pneumonia, rhinitis, sinus infections, smoker’s cough, snoring, stress, and fatigue, wheezing, insomnia, and more…
