Salt Therapy, or Halotherapy, is the use of inhaled salt in minute quantities as a natural therapy of respiratory ailments.

It has long been known that salt displays strong anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. A supplemental benefit of Salt Therapy has been found to be significant improvement of many common skin complaints.

What does salt therapy involve?

A pre-booked visit involves a 45 minute session sitting in our purpose made ‘Little Himalaya’ in an exceptionally relaxing atmosphere- no phones, no ipads.

The walls are lined with 100% natural Himalayan Salts blocks imported from Pakistan. These give off negative ions, not dissimilar is a bracing day at the sea side.

The room is filled with fresh air at the start of each session. A state-of –the- art Halogenerator (the most popular brand used in the USA salt caves) then injects an aerosol stream of miniscule particles of approx 0.5 microns into the atmosphere.

The Benefits of Salt Therapy

Salt therapy is similar, but much more intense to spending time in the salty sea air, which offers many more benefits than just relaxation on the beach. Ancient healers and philosophers recommended salt inhalation for the respiratory system and health problems.

Dry salt therapy originates from speleotherapy (cave therapy) and the Wieliczka salt cave in Poland, where workers exhibited fewer respiratory illnesses. There are thousands of salt rooms in Europe and beyond. The benefits of salt therapy are wide-ranging.
