what is halotherapy?
Halotherapy, more commonly known as Salt Therapy, is an alternative treatment that involves breathing salty air. It can treat respiratory conditions, such as asthma, chronic bronchitis, and allergies. Others suggest it can also:
ease smoking-related symptoms, such as a cough, shortness of breath, and wheezing
treat depression and anxiety
cure some skin conditions, such as psoriasis, eczema, and acne
The origins of halotherapy date back to the medieval era.
In our cave, we grind salt into microscopic particles and releases them into the air. Once inhaled, these salt particles absorb irritants, including allergens and toxins, from the respiratory system. This process breaks up mucus and reduces inflammation, resulting in clear airways.
The salt particles have a similar effect on your skin by absorbing bacteria and other impurities responsible for many skin conditions.
Salt is also said to produce negative ions. This causes your body to release more serotonin, one of the chemicals behind feelings of happiness. Many people use himalayan salt lamps to get the benefits of negative ions at home.
