Salt Cave Therapy
Bringing Salt Cave Therapy to You in a Spa Like Atmosphere
Salt cave therapy was first utilized hundreds of years ago after salt miners discovered the natural healing elements of the salt they worked around. This started speleotherapy, which involved patients going underground into the salt cave for hours a day, several months at a time to experience the healing benefits of salt. Today, this same therapy is produced in a breathe salt room, which creates a microclimate that ensures the optimal salt level is experienced. The medi-spa room includes dim lighting, soft music and comfortable, zero gravity chairs, designed to promote total body relaxation and overall healing and rejuvenation.
Halotherapy or salt therapy was the next step to speleotherapy. Halotherapy works when pharmaceutical grade salt is crushed into micronized particles. These particles are then dispersed into a breath salt room. If you enter a salt therapy room, you will inhale the particles that are being sent into the air and in essence deriving the benefits of the salt mines, without having to endure the harsh environment. Salt therapy has been proven effective by countless clinical studies that have proven it as a natural way to stimulate the respiratory system, thus reducing inflammation and discomfort. It also clears blockages in the airways and lungs and fights infections within the respiratory system as well as various skin conditions.
This non-invasive, natural, safe treatment method, which mimics salt cave therapy, is a great way to treat various conditions without medications. Of course, in many cases, salt therapy works best in conjunction with other treatments, including medications. However, in some cases, you can utilize salt therapy in place of medications as a natural way to treat either your respiratory or skin condition. In addition, unlike medical treatments that are less than pleasant, salt therapy is a spa like experience, designed to rejuvenate and replenish the body.
