What is Halotherapy?
Halotherapy, taken from the Greek halos meaning "salt", is a natural treatment that has been dated back to the twelfth century. It is the process of breathing in dry salt particles and is a 100% natural way to treat numerous conditions. Salt therapy is beneficial to your overall well being and it strengthens the body's immune system by eliminating toxins trapped within the respiratory system.
Halogenerators are used to replicate the atmosphere of salt mines. It grinds the salt to micro-sized particles and then disperses them into the air, allowing the salt to travel deep into the lungs.
From pollens and toxins, to pollution, smog and airborne diseases, our society has never been faced with such a growing epidemic of respiratory ailments. Halotherapy, also know as salt therapy, is beneficial in helping the side effects that come with such conditions. It has ben researched for centuries and has been proven as a safe alternative and compliments other treatments.
Most people are familiar with 'wet' salt therapy. Whether you have gargled with salt water, put salt in a bath, had a saline solution treatment or used a Nettie pot, wet salt has its benefits; but dry salt is different and the drier the salt the better. That is why our generators heat the salt prior to dispersing it into the rooms. Heat ensures that all moisture is evaporated so when it is inhaled, the salt particles can do their best job. The particles penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli which breaks down the toxin and clears the respiratory system. While inside the salt room, the salt particles that are not inhaled fall onto the skin, which is greatly beneficial for skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and acne.
