The microclimate of our salt room is said to be three times cleaner than a sterile surgery room in a hospital. Salt is a natural anti-bacterial, and it kills all bacteria on contact. Besides, our filtered ventilation system is continually working to circulate the air in the salt room, drawing used air out and clean, filtered air in. Utterly new air and salt are pumped into the room before each session.
How is dry salt aerosol better than saline treatments (Neti pots, nebulizers, etc.)?
Dry salt is more effective than moist salt (saline). Dry salt is very high in negative ions. The inner surfaces of your airways are positively charged and therefore draw the dry salt into the airways where it is most beneficial. Also, saline is known to cause some bronchial hyperactivity. Dry salt aerosol used with the right temperature and humidity like in a halotherapy room avoids bronchial swelling and spasm. You also ingest less salt during a 50-minute Halotherapy session than the dose received while inhaling moist sodium chloride aerosol (saline). Lastly, people have been known to contract serious infections from non-sterile water used in wet saline therapies. This cannot occur with dry salt aerosol.
