The ancient Greeks discovered that spending time in salt mines and salt caves produced a positive effect on the respiratory system. They found that inhaled saline provided bactericide and anti inflammatory properties for a myriad of other ailments. In fact, the medical and scientific communities have confirmed that Halotherapy has the ability to calm asthma, hypertension, digestive, cardiovascular and nervous system issues, not to mention the interesting effect it has on skin conditions such as acne and psoriasis.

In order to reproduce this type of environment, researchers and scientists have developed a unique method of replicating a microclimate where the air is saturated with dry salt particles. The hospital grade medical equipment controls the temperature, humidity, size and the concentrations of dry salt particles in the air. Inside the salt cave, clients can expect to experience 45 minutes lounging in a beach chair while being treated to mineral soaked air, light therapy and calming music to increase the relaxation benefits. Many participants have reported that since they began visiting a salt treatment room they have not been sick with any viral diseases. Halotherapy is definitely something to consider.
