Salt therapy commonly known as Halotherapy has been around for centuries in Eastern Europe.

For decades and even centuries, people have visited salt caves in Europe to alleviate their respiratory and skin discomforts.

Halotherapy (“halos” in Greek means salt), Halotherapy is the mode of treatments in a controlled air medium that simulates a natural salt cave microclimate.

A suggestion that it is the air saturated with saline dust that causes the main curative effect on patients with respiratory diseases was first formulated by a Polish physician F.Bochkowsky in 1843. Salt mines are known to be used for therapeutic purposes in many countries, such as Austria, Rumania, Poland, Azerbaijan, Ukraine and others. Halotherapy has been acknowledged as a highly effective medication-free treatment method, Halotherapy is the method of natural therapy, the main healing factor – aero dispersed environment saturated with dry sodium chloride aerosol, Halotherapy is a mode of treatment in a controlled air medium that simulates the natural salt cave microclimate. Halotherapy is performed in a special room with salt-coated walls and floor – the salt room.

Dry sodium chloride aerosol containing particles of 1-5 um in size is produced in this room by a special machine, the halogenerator, the device which pushes air containing this aerosol into the salt room. The halogenerator has a microprocessor that monitors and maintains the temperature, relative humidity and mass concentration of aerosol in the salt room. Halotherapy provides a specified concentration of dry salt aerosol under controlled conditions of temperature and relative humidity, while regulating the size and speed of the dry sodium aerosol particles.
