Why Salt Therapy?

Antibacterial & anti-viral in nature

It inhibits, and in some cases, destroys bacteria in the respiratory tract. It removes pathogens (mould, bacteria, allergens) to clear and assist in the self-cleaning recovery of the respiratory area. Elimination of obstructing secretions leads to the organic and sustainable eradication of pathogens and irritants.


Produces anti-inflammatory properties that have been scientifically proven to be the root cause of many diseases. Anti-infection resistance of the body was noted by the detection of phagocytes in blood composition.

Boosts the Immune System

The antimicrobial properties of the salt we use are impressive and have been found to boost the immune system while normalizing measurements of reduced immunity.

Progressive Relaxation

To nix tension from head to toe, close the eyes and focus on tensing and relaxing each muscle group for two to three seconds each. Start with the feet and toes, then move up to the knees, thighs, rear, chest, arms, hands, neck, jaw and eyes — all while maintaining deep, slow breaths. Having trouble staying on track? Try breathing in through the nose, hold for a count of five while the muscles tense, then breathe out through the mouth on release. When it works best: One word of caution: Dizziness is never the goal. If holding your breath ever feels uncomfortable, tone it down to just a few seconds at most.

Mucolytic effects

It loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport, it also eliminates pathogen agents (airborne pollen)and lessens IgE levels (immune system oversensitivity)

Guided Visualization

Head straight for your “happy place,” no questions asked. Breathe deeply while focusing on pleasant, positive images to replace any negative thoughts. Guided visualization helps puts you in the place you want to be, rather than letting your mind go to the internal dialogue that is stressful. When it works best: Pretty much any time and place you can safely close your eyes and let go! Level of difficulty: Intermediate While stress, frustration, and other daily setbacks will always be there, the good news is, so will our breath. Consider using one of many breathing and or guided meditation apps available. Here are a few suggestions.

Salt Therapy

How it began?

Salt has been used for healing purposes all over the world since ancient times.  Specifically, Salt Therapy originated about 150 years ago in Eastern Europe with Dr Bochkovsky’s discovery of health benefits mine workers attained working the mines.  They rarely suffered from respiratory ailments, lung disease, or colds.  He attributed this to the inhalation of dry salt aerosol on a daily basis, also called Salt Therapy or Halotherapy. With no airborne pollutants or humidity, and a stable temperature, Salt Mines proved beneficial for healthy lungs & skin.  People with asthma, allergies, emphysema and other respiratory & skin problems began heading to salt mines ( for Salt Therapy )  in hopes of benefiting from breathing the healing dry aerosol found deep underground. Modern Technology, using a special halo generator, has brought the benefits of Salt Therapy/Halotherapy (Halos in Greek means salt), to people without having to travel to salt caves in Europe & Asia.

The source of the salt is 250 million years old huge deposits of the purest rock salt which have been formed from the rippling waters of a shallow bay of the ancient Permian Sea. Since natural salt caves and salt mines are not conveniently accessible for most people, the conditions of the salt caves were recreated by using Salt Therapy/Halotherapy. Dry sodium chloride aerosol containing particles of 0.3 to 1µm. in size is produced by our halo generator and released into the Salt Room in an aerosol form.

How it starts to work on your Respiratory & Skin Conditions in a session?

During a session, clients breathe in the dry, salt-enriched air into the lungs, the salt is so fine it reaches deep into the lungs and begins to kill bacteria, reduce the inflammation and loosen phlegm, which begins to clear quite quickly in most clients leading to increasing lung capacity. The salt has a similar effect on the skin as it has an anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effect on it and assists in reducing your IgE levels which lessens your skin’s sensitivity to allergies.
