Halotherapy, also known as dry salt therapy, is a fast-growing, holistic approach that mimics the microclimate of a salt cave.

Clients breathe in the micro-sized salt particles, which are immediately transported to every part of the respiratory tract, even the smallest alveoli, and bronchioles. Then, the dry salt molecules dissolve and attract small impurities… the reason why it is called the “toothbrush of the lungs.”

Halotherapy may eliminate the root of inflammatory respiratory illnesses in the lower and the upper tract like asthma, bronchitis as well as allergies, by destroying bacteria and restoring health and immunity.

How does it work?

Micro-sized salt particles are dispersed into an enclosed environment (room, bed, booth, cabin) through a unique process generated by a halogenerator. These salt particles (less than 3 micron sized), while creating an antibacterial environment, draw out the excess moisture, the mucus and impurities that are in the airways and on the skin. Therefore, it is essential to use a high quality halogenerator that produces the right size particles in order to achieve the desired results.

The science behind salt therapy

Regarded as conventional healthcare, halotherapy is covered by health insurance in many European countries and Israel. For clinical studies and more information, visit our Research page or the Global Wellness Institute and the World Halotherapy Association.

How many sessions are necessary?

Halotherapy offers the best results when practiced regularly. The benefits are cumulative, so consistency and frequency are the key. People with chronic issues will benefit greatly if visiting salt rooms at least 3-4 times a week. Those who are looking to incorporate halotherapy into their regular wellness routine would benefit from a weekly session. Halotherapy has been used on a daily basis without any side effects.

Contradictions, side effects

There are typically no side effects other than potential thirst. However, if someone is on any medications or suffers from any serious medical issue, please seek medical advice before any therapy.
