The History of Salt Therapy

Although new in Canada, Salt Therapy has been around since the 1800s in Europe. In the salt mines in Poland, miners who had frequent exposure to the salt noticed healing of their respiratory and skin ailments. Thus began Speleotherapy, or therapy in an underground salt cave. This involved spending 2-3 hours a day underground in a salt mine for 2-3 months. As you can imagine, not many people can travel to a salt mine and spend two to three months there.

Doctors and scientists came up with a solution. That's where Halotherapy comes in. Halotherapy comes from the Greek, Halo, for salt. It is a modern holistic method that mimics the natural microclimate of the salt mines. You can get the benefits of three hours in a salt mine in only 40 minutes in a specially designed halochamber, or salt room. Our halogenerator, designed by Dr. Alina Chervinskaya the leading expert in Halotherapy, is used to crush pharmaceutical grade salt into micronized particles that are dispersed through the air in the salt room. Clinical studies have shown that when people inhale this type of salt air, it can help to stimulate the natural ability of their respiratory system to reduce Inflammation, fight infection, clear blockages and reduce discomfort.
