Halotherapy-Salt Spa Room
Halotherapy is a dry salt therapy that is provided in man-made environments, utilizing special equipment called a halogenerator that disperses a precise dry salt aerosol into the active Salt Room.
Active salt rooms include a halogenerator and are primarily based on providing a controlled way of providing micro-particles of salt in the air to be inhaled and exposed to the skin. This can be achieved only by a special piece of equipment known as a halogenerator. Pure sodium chloride is placed into the halogenerator, which then crushes and grinds the salt into micro-sized particles and disperses the salt aerosol into the air. This type of dry salt therapy is known as Halotherapy.
How it works
Active dry salt therapy is simple to understand. There are three primary characteristics of pure sodium chloride, NaCl, known as salt:
Salt is super absorbent
Salt is anti-bacterial
Salt is anti-inflammatory
Halotherapy utilizes a medical grade pure dry salt is placed into a halogenerator that then precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles and then disperses the salt aerosol into the air in an enclosed environment of our Salt Spa Room.
As the salt travels in the salt room, these salt particles of dry sodium chloride are inhaled into the respiratory system. The dry salt naturally starts absorbing allergens, toxins and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Dry salt may help to reduce inflammation and open airway passages. The micro-sized crystal structure of pure NaCl particles breaks loose and clears out all the ‘bad stuff’. This is the basis for how dry salt therapy can impact people suffering from respiratory conditions. The properties of dry salt also absorb impurities and provide anti-bacterial properties that benefit the skin as well as regulate the skin's micro-circulation. The smaller particles can reach beneath the skin’s surface and absorb moisture towards the skin. The larger salt particles land on the skin and absorb any bacterial and foreign substances. The dry salt accelerates cell rejuvenation and improves skin rigidity. The climate conditions in a dry salt room therefore must maintain certain temperature and humidity levels and proper ventilation to ensure the efficacy of the salt therapy and provide a ‘clean-air’ environment for the consumer.
Overall Dry Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy, it benefits adults and children alike as well as athletes and animals. It is natural and safe and there are no harmful side effects. Halotherapy is very beneficial for overall wellness by removing the toxicity from the respiratory system, improving the function and appearance of the skin and boosting the immune system. For general respiratory hygiene, once or twice a week visiting your local salt therapy facility may enhance the lung capacity, boost the immune system, reduce stress and aid better sleep.

Halotherapy is recognized as a safe and effective wellness practice for preventive and restorative health care. Dry salt therapy is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
Some side effects of Halotherapy can be a slight cough or runny nose, but this is simply the salt working to remove mucus and toxins from the lungs and airways.
Halotherapy is not recommended for people with contagious diseases, fever, open wounds, cancer, severe hypertension, mental disorders and active tuberculosis.
