Halotherapy comes from the Greek word, "halos" which means "salt". Halotherapy, also known as dry salt therapy, is an all natural treatment that mimics the microclimate of a salt cave.
Halotherapy originated as Speleotherapy over 100 years ago in Eastern Europe for the therapeutic benefit of respiratory disease. In 1843 a Polish physician named Feliks Boczkowski promoted the idea of salt treatment after noticing that workers at salt mines, unlike other miners, did not have respiratory or lung problems.
Halotherapy has since been recognized in Europe for the treatment of breathing and skin conditions. It is used throughout the world today with documented and consistently positive results.
One does not need to visit an ancient salt cave to experience the restorative effects of Halotherapy. It has become a standard therapy in many spas across the globe as a highly effective treatment.
Halotherapy is a safe, all natural, and drug-free alternative. It is anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-microbial. It is not considered a replacement for pharmaceuticals but rather augment therapy to enhance the natural healing process.
