Halotherapy

Halotherapy, also known as dry salt therapy, is an all-natural approach to respiratory health. It involves the inhalation of microscopic particles of salt to promote deep healing and relaxation in the lungs. This technique has been studied extensively and found to be effective in combating respiratory ailments such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion, and more. The practice of Halotherapy dates back centuries when people would venture into salt mines for relief from a variety of respiratory conditions. Today’s version combines this time-tested concept with modern technology for an enhanced experience. The salt room is filled with tiny particles of pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride, which are then dispersed using a halogenerator machine. As a person breathes in this salty air, tiny particles enter their lungs and attract moisture, reducing inflammation and breaking up mucus from allergies or sinusitis. These particles can also penetrate deep into the lungs to reduce swelling in the airways and promote better breathing overall. Halotherapy is a great option for those seeking natural relief from respiratory conditions without having to take traditional medications which often come along with unwanted side effects. It can help provide relief from shortness of breath, coughing fits, chest tightness, and other symptoms associated with chronic lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or asthma. In addition to improving breathing quality over time, it can also help reduce stress by providing an environment where users can relax while they breathe in the therapeutic air. Studies have also shown that regular sessions of Halotherapy provide lasting benefits even after the therapy ends, including improved sleep quality due to increased oxygen levels in the body and improved lung function due to reduced inflammation and mucus buildup in the airways. Furthermore, Halotherapy is safe for people of all ages and does not require any additional equipment or medications, making it ideal for those seeking holistic solutions for their respiratory health needs. If you have been searching for an alternative solution for respiratory issues, then consider giving Halotherapy a try! With regular visits, you may find increased energy levels due to improved oxygen intake throughout your body, as well as decreased stress levels due to the meditative atmosphere within the room itself! So why not give it a try?

  • What is Halotherapy?
    Halotherapy, also known as dry salt therapy, is a holistic approach that mimics the microclimate of a salt cave. Dry salt air is dispersed into an enclosed environment (room, booth,) by a halogenerator. Salt absorbs and removes the allergens, toxins, and foreign substances in your lungs and sinuses. Salt also reduces any inflammation and opens airway passages making easier to breath. Halotherapy, is a holistic, drug free, natural therapy to promote better breathing, healthier skin, sounder sleep, improved physical fitness and endurance and overall wellness.
  • Is there research to support Halotherapy?
    Yes, Halotherapy is backed by 50 years of science. Most research has been done in Europe where the therapy originated. Halotherapy has been well researched in Russia and Eastern Europe. Most of the research has been conducted by Dr. A. V. Chervinskaya, head of the Clinical Research Respiratory Center in St. Petersburg, Russia. She works in the field of pulmonology and rehabilitation medicine and has published more than two hundred articles on this topic. Recently, the New England Journal of Medicine published an article on the efficacy of saline salt therapy in cystic fibrosis. They found that long term saline salt therapy had a positive impact on lung function and reduced pulmonary exacerbations. In addition, they found no negative side effects associated with the therapy. Scientific publications of interest: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) Chronic Respiratory Disease Non-Cystic Fibrosis All Airway Disease Athlete Lung Function Post COVID
  • How does Halotherapy work?
    Pure pharmaceutical grade salt is heated and ground into tiny micro particles by a halogenerator and then dispersed into a room or booth. While relaxing customers simply breathe. The salt opens the airways, reduces inflammation in the lungs and sinuses and loosens the mucus. Negative ions counterbalance the many positive ions we pick up from electronic devices neutralizing the atmosphere stabilizes mood, decreases stress and prepares the body for ultimate healing.
  • When should Halotherapy be avoided?
    Halotherapy is known as a safe and natural wellness modality; however, clients who have any serious health conditions or women who are pregnant should always consult their doctor first. Halotherapy is not recommended for people who have the following conditions: Infections associated with a fever or contagious diseases Some forms of cancer (please consult your doctor) or undergoing chemotherapy Tuberculosis Cardiac disease Acute respiratory disease Severe hypertension intoxication
  • Are there any side effects of Halotherapy?
    Some folks may experience a tickle in their throat or sinuses and some sinus drainage may occur as the mucus breaks up. For those who experience a slight cough, this is a sign the salt therapy is effectively moving the impurities through the cilia. If a client has an excess of mucus in the upper airway, it may break up and drain following a session. Some clients with hypersensitive skin may experience mild skin irritation.
  • Should I stop using traditional medications during Halotherapy sessions?
    No. Halotherapy is complementary therapy with the goal of decreasing and controlling respiratory and skin conditions....it has an additive effect and should be used as adjunct therapy to what your doctor has prescribed. As always, consult with a doctor if you have any concerns or if you have a condition where you are under a physician’s care.
  • Is salt therapy safe for children?
    Halotherapy is a completely drug-free therapy for children of all ages. European clinical research suggests that dry salt aerosol therapy has a higher degree of efficacy in children. Depending on the age and therapy goals, session times and concentration levels may be adjusted. Please consult your pediatrician.
  • What kind of salt is used for Halotherapy?
    Pure pharmaceutical grade salt (99.99% pure sodium chloride). It contains no added minerals or other potential contaminants or fillers. It comes from a natural source, but it is naturally processed to remove all of its impure elements. It’s the same salt that hospitals in Eastern Europe use in their salt rooms as well as the same salt used in Halotherapy research. We do not recommend Himalayan or sea salt as it is not stripped of all the impurities. There could be dirt, clay or some type of debris that could be harmful to the lungs. Himalayan salt can be healthy for the digestive system but not for the respiratory system.
  • How many sessions/times a week is necessary?
    Frequency of therapy depends on the type and severity of the client’s condition as well as their wellness goals. For respiratory, such as asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, bronchitis, sinusitis, or allergies it is best to “front load” by coming in 2-3 times the first 7-10 days to saturate the airway, then back down to once or twice a week to find what maintenance looks like for you. Folks with a more severely compromised respiratory tract/condition will want to start Halotherapy at a lower concentration over a longer session time. Most skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and dry itchy skin may require a higher concentration and more frequent visits. Chronic conditions require sustained use over time for best results.
  • What is the recommended duration per session?
    45 minutes in a salt room and 15-20 minutes for a booth.
  • What results can clients expect?
    Many clients who have asthma, allergies and other bronchial issues have seen some amazing results in a short period of time. Breathing may become deeper, sinus passages are less inflamed and start to drain and skin conditions may improve dramatically with frequent and sustained use, which leads to a better quality of life. We don’t make any medical claims about salt therapy but after receiving therapy clients’ respiratory issues and lung function have vastly improved. In addition, those who have severe skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema or acne have also had much improvement in the health of their skin.
  • What do you wear during a session?
    Wear comfortable clothing (most people just wear street clothes). The salt air will not harm your clothing, nor leave a noticeable residue. If you are doing halotherapy for skin conditions, we recommend that you wear shorts and t-shirt, to expose as much of the affected area as possible.
  • How sterile is the microclimate in the Salt Room?
    The microclimate is 3 times cleaner in the salt room than in a sterile surgery room in a hospital, therefore, it is almost impossible to catch any infection or bacteria during the session. A stable hypoallergenic, hypo bacterial environment is maintained in the therapeutic room.
