What is Halotherapy?
Halotherapy is a centuries-old practice that was discovered when in the 1800s, Polish doctor, Feliks Boczkowski, realized that the salt miners were emerging from the salt mines with pristine lungs and excellent health conditions, while others at that time, suffered with severe respiratory issues and other ailments.
How does it work?
Throughout the centuries, many more discoveries of the benefits of Halotherapy have occurred. In more recent years, we’ve discovered how to turn Halotherapy into a revolutionary fusion of nature and modern technology, to recreate the environmental atmosphere of salt mines or salt caves. By dispersing microscopic salt particles into the air of the salt treatment rooms, the salt is inhaled during the Halotherapy sessions to treat symptoms and ailments. Once it’s in the respiratory system, it absorbs allergens, toxins and foreign substances from your lungs and throughout the respiratory tract. It also reduces inflammation and opens the airways, making it easier to breathe.
