What is Dry Salt Therapy?

Halotherapy is a dry salt therapy that utilizes a halogenerator to grind and crush salt into micronized particles that are dispersed into the Salt Room via a dry salt aerosol that works to aid respiratory concerns and skin conditions.

How Long is a Typical Session?

How Should I Dress?

How Many Sessions Do I Need and How Often?

Based on your condition and symptoms, this can vary. For best results, the Salt Therapy Association recommends a series of treatments. Som individuals prefer to use Dry Salt Therapy as a continuous preventative measure.

How Dry Salt Therapy Works - The 3 Fundamentals

            Super Absorbent

Dry Salt acts like a sponge attracting foreign substances along its path through the respiratory tract. The dry salt removes the build-up of foreign elements that cause various respiratory ailments and conditions.


Inhaled dry salt particles may help to reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen the airway passages. A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy and an improved immune system. 


The dry salt particles act as an anti-bacterial agent, dissolving bacteria and pollutants lodged in the respiratory tract. These are then either coughed up or naturally expelled by the body.

Are there Any Side Effects?

There are no potentially side effects. The treatment is completely natural. A slight cough or a runny nose is possible but this is simply the salt working to remove mucus and toxins from the lungs and airways.


Who Benefits from Dry Salt Therapy?

Halotherapy benefits adults and children alike as well as athletes and animals. it is natural and safe and there are no side effects.

Dry Salt Therapy acts to cleanse the respiratory system and the skin, which helps to relieve congestion, inflammation and skin conditions. Sessions are non-invasive. Once you enter the Salt Room, you can sit and relax, you can choose to listen to relaxing music, read a book, meditate or simply rest. You will find pure relaxation and tranquility away from your everyday stress, leaving you rejuvenated and fully energized. (Cell phones, electronics, and jewelry are usually not permitted since salt can be corrosive).

The salt is heated and then ground and crushed into very tiny microparticles and dispersed into the Salt Room where they are inhaled and penetrate deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli. the non-inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin and are absorbed.

When your session is over, you may notice a fait trace of salt on your lips and a slight taste of salt on your tongue. Any salt that collects on your clothing can be brushed off. A runny nose or increase in coughing means your body is clearing out mucus and toxins.
