Active vs passive salt rooms: Choosing the right type for your health needs 1200 800 INHALEUM

Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, is a form of alternative medicine that utilizes salt in various forms to alleviate symptoms of respiratory and skin conditions, as well as promote relaxation and improve overall wellness. There are two main types of salt therapy: active and passive. While both types have their own unique benefits, the better option depends on individual preferences and specific health concerns.

The limited medical benefits of passive salt therapy

Passive salt therapy, also known as speleotherapy, involves creating a man-made salt cave-like environment that is filled with different types of salts, such as himalayan, Dead sea, rock salt, caribbean, and mediterranean salt.

The passive salt rooms are designed to regulate the flow of air, temperature, and humidity so that a pollutant- and allergen-free environment can be created. The salt concentration is generally lower than in active salt rooms, as this type of therapy does not involve the use of a halogenerator.

Although passive salt rooms can create a calming and relaxing atmosphere that can help to improve psycho-emotional well-being, they do not provide the same level of medical benefits as active salt therapy. They are primarily used for relaxation and meditation rather than for halotherapy.

The halogenerator advantage: Why active salt therapy is superior

Active salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, on the other hand, takes place in a room equipped with a halogenerator that disperses aerosols of pure sodium chloride into the air. These microscopic salt particles are then inhaled or absorbed through the skin, providing targeted treatment for various respiratory and skin conditions, while also supporting immunity and overall well-being.

The use of a halogenerator ensures that the salt particles are of uniform size and concentration, providing consistent and effective treatment. Patients can enjoy the benefits of halotherapy in a climate-controlled environment, free from external pollutants.

Active salt therapy is considered more effective and it has been shown to have numerous health benefits, including reducing inflammation, improving respiratory function, and promoting relaxation. It is also effective in treating skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema, as the salt particles help to exfoliate and hydrate the skin.

Active or passive salt therapy: Which one should you choose?

Both types of salt therapy have their own unique benefits and can be used to promote overall health and wellness. While passive salt therapy can provide a sense of calmness and tranquility, active salt therapy is better suited for medical conditions. Ultimately, the choice between the two depends on your needs and preferences.
