Salt is vital to your cellular function. It is a natural antihistamine and contains powerful antiseptic properties. Halotherapy (also called salt therapy) has been widely used since the 12th century to treat a long list of physical and mental ailments.
The Halogenerator in our Halotherapy Room grinds pharmaceutical grade salt into microscopic particles and releases them into the air. Once inhaled, these salt particles have a potent cleansing effect on the lungs.
The salt particles convert positive ions into negative ions, which is vital in strengthening the body’s immune system and has a positive effect on the respiratory system and skin ailments.
Halotherapy has been reported to:
• Help kill bacteria in the lungs.
• Widen the airways by reducing inflammation.
• Reduce IgE levels, which means the immune system won’t overreact to asthma/allergy triggers.
• Have a mucolytic effect, which means it helps to break up retained mucus and therefore reduce the chance of infection.
The audio, lighting and heating in the Halotherapy room can be adjusted to ensure you are as comfortable as possible.
