What Is Halotherapy?

The term “Halotherapy” comes from “halo”, the Greek word for salt. Simply put, Halotherapy is the use of salt vapor to treat respiratory ailments, skin irritations, and combat mental lethargy.

For centuries, monks used naturally-occurring salt caverns to treat respiratory ailments. Today, manmade Salt rooms recreate salt caverns, with one huge improvement over nature: in a Halotherapy room, a salt vaporizer pumps dry aerosol salt vapor into the air, so you can breathe it deep into your lungs.

Salt is known to be:

  • anti-bacterial

  • mucolytic (loosens mucus & phlegm)

  • anti-inflammatory


Studies show that people with chronic upper respiratory conditions, airborne allergies, sinusitis, and cystic fibrosis derive significant benefits from Halotherapy.

More than 40 years of research, conducted around the world, shows that treatment with Halotherapy has beneficial effects for patients with:

  • Asthma

  • Chronic Bronchitis

  • Sinusitis

  • COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

  • Cystic Fibrosis

  • Allergic Rhinopathy or Hay Fever

  • Ear Infections

  • Various acute or chronic respiratory diseases

  • Smoker’s cough

  • Viral infections

  • Coughs and colds

  • Chronic ear-nose-throat illnesses


Salt is also extremely beneficial to your skin in treating:

  • Acne

  • Psoriasis

  • Neurodermatitis

  • Eczema


In addition, salt naturally produces negative ions, which produce the “clarity effect” that people love from Halotherapy treatments. Negative ions have been shown to reduce:

  • Stress

  • Headaches

  • Lethargy

  • Depression


And negative ions can dramatically increase your:

  • Energy

  • Mental alertness

  • Overall sense of well-being


Halotherapy has been in use in Eastern Europe for more than 150 years.  It’s just catching on in North America.
