What Is Halotherapy?

Halotherapy, also known as salt therapy, is an ancient healing method that has recently become popular and more widely available. The purpose of halotherapy is to help people relax and find relief from a variety of respiratory and skin conditions, as well as stress and anxiety.

Halotherapy is believed to have originated in Eastern Europe in the 19th century, when people would go to the salt mines for relief from respiratory ailments. Today, halotherapy is not very widely available but is becoming increasingly popular for its health benefits and as an adjunct therapy.


Is Halotherapy Safe?

Halotherapy is considered A safe non-invasive, drug-free therapy that uses natural salt to promote wellness. The salt particles used in halotherapy are tiny and inhaled deep into the respiratory system, where they can help to reduce inflammation and clear out mucus and other debris. These particles are also believed to have anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, making them a safe and effective way to alleviate a variety of respiratory and skin conditions. 

Is Halotherapy Scientifically Proven?

Halotherapy has been the subject of numerous studies to investigate its effectiveness in treating respiratory and skin conditions. For example, a 2014 study published in the International Journal of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease found that halotherapy improved lung function and quality of life in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Another study published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology in 2017 showed that halotherapy reduced symptoms and medication use in children with asthma.

Some benefits of halotherapy include:

The salt particles are thought to absorb impurities, such as bacteria and allergens, and help to improve overall air quality. This can be beneficial for those who suffer from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory conditions.


Improved skin condition

Halotherapy can improve skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.


Increased productivity

Spiritual healing

How Does Halotherapy Work?

Halotherapy works by introducing salt into the air. The salt particles are mixed into a saline solution and misted into the air. The solution is  then inhaled and goes to work on the respiratory system. This natural alternative therapy is used to treat a variety of conditions, including respiratory and skin ailments
