Salt Room sessions are 100% natural, drug-free, antibacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory.
It all started in 1843 in Wieliczka, Poland when Doctor Felix Boczkowski discovered that the miners appeared to be healthier than the general population. That belief prompted him to conduct studies on the benefits of salt caves. He concluded that the air saturated with dry salt particles in the salt mines led to improvement and prevention of pulmonary, skin problems, allergies, and stress. Nowadays, the therapeutic effect is achieved while in a control environment inhaling pure pharmaceutical grade salt usually in a handcrafted salt room. Although it is relatively new to the United States, in Eastern Europe salt rooms have been used for therapeutic purposes for centuries. The first Halo-generator was created in 1985 in Russia. Since then, Halotherapy is even used in animals, day spa, medical wellness centers as well as stand along Salt Room facility.
In a machine called a Halogenerator, dry pharmaceutical grade salt is heated, then place in the Halogenerator to be ground and crushed into Microparticles. The Microparticles of dry salt is then aerosolized and dispersed into the salt room during the salt session. The Microparticles which are less than 5 microns of dry salt are inhaled into the respiratory system promoting healing to the sinuses and mucus clearance in the lungs. While inside the salt room the salt particles fall onto the skin helping alleviate the skin.
