In today’s society, we are facing a high prevalence of respiratory problems and allergies that negatively affect the quality of life for all of us. This trend is particularly evident in industrialized countries and cities where viruses and bacteria are common and the air and environment are heavily polluted. Therefore, halotherapy, also known as dry salt therapy, is becoming an essential part of health care.

From salt mines to salt caves and rooms

The history of salt therapy dates back to the 18th century when it was discovered that miners working in deep salt mines did not suffer from seasonal illnesses, respiratory problems, or dermatitis. This was later confirmed during World War II when salt mines were used as shelters for the population and many people suffering from asthma and respiratory problems experienced improved health due to repeated stays in these mines.

This therapeutic method, which mimics the microclimate of a salt cave, involves inhaling air enriched with tiny, pharmaceutical-grade salt particles. It is most commonly performed in the relaxing environment of salt caves or salt rooms and is suitable for people of all ages.

Halotherapy is a holistic, natural, and non-invasive approach that helps improve health and overall well-being. It is an excellent complement to conventional medicine in the fight against many health problems and also serves as an effective form of prevention for healthy individuals.

Effective holistic approach with the natural power of salt

Dry salt therapy can effectively cleanse the entire respiratory system of pathogenic organisms, allergens, smog, and fine dust that is characteristic of heavily industrialized countries. It helps reduce inflammation in the respiratory tract, relaxes the airways, and removes mucus from the respiratory passages. As a result, it alleviates symptoms of respiratory diseases such as asthma, allergies, rhinitis, sinusitis, bronchitis, throat, and nasopharyngeal inflammation, COPD, cystic fibrosis, and others.

It also effectively stimulates skin regeneration and cleansing, aiding in skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis, acne, and post-cosmetic surgery recovery. It also boosts immunity, reduces stress and anxiety, and has a positive impact on sleep, concentration, and physical fitness.

This therapy can also be used by people with high blood pressure, circulatory disorders, or depression, as well as athletes for recovery after sports performance. However, it is not recommended for individuals with hyperthyroidism, cancerous diseases, claustrophobia, or tuberculosis.
