Salt therapy is also helpful to those seeking optimal respiratory function for activities such as:

     Athletic performance (swimming, running, biking, tennis, dancing, etc.)

     Vocal performance (singing, public speaking, etc.)

​A salt cave is a man-made recreation of the environment of a natural underground salt mine which is naturally pollution free by using technology that precisely infuses pure salt and negative ions into the air. Salt caves are a 100% natural and drug-free treatment for the respiratory system and have been successfully used in Europe for the past several decades for treatment in asthma, allergies and sinusitis as well as many other common respiratory illnesses such as bronchitis and even skin issues such as psoriasis and eczema.  Halotherapy, or Salt Therapy, via a man-made salt cave, assists in respiratory therapy via inhalation of dry-salt-aerosol which in the most basic sense helps to soften mucus throughout the respiratory tract.  Salt is also anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-microbial, and anti-inflammatory.  ​Halotherapy is a clinically proven natural, safe and beneficial method of treatment for all ages. 

The primary acting factor in Halotherapy is dry salt aerosol.  A generator, which by means of mechanical action, crushes Pharma grade salt grains into small particles which create a dry salt aerosol.  The larger particles are caught in the nose and the throat and the smaller particles penetrate deep into the lungs (the alveoli) and even directly into the blood stream.  The air is purified of dust and allergens and kept at a temperature between 62-65 degrees F with the humidity at 50-70%.  These elements are crucial for easy inhalation of the dry salt aerosol.  The entire salt cave concept is that of a salt cave / salt mine micro-climate replica.  The air must be pure so our salt cave has its own separate air filtration and cooling system separate from the rest of the building.  We also have a UV light and filter as you enter the cave to help kill any bacteria and viruses the salt doesn't already take care of.  All elements are controlled in order to maintain the perfect environment so Halotherapy may be performed in its ideal state.

Salt aerosol cleanses the human airways like a toothbrush cleans teeth.  The dry saline aerosol reduces edema of the mucosal lining, restores the normal transport of mucus, and unclogs blockages in the bronchi and bronchioles.  Salt is naturally antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, mucolytic effective, pathogen and allergen free and there are no known interactions with medicine.  It contains negative ions which are absorbed through the skin and inhaled into our lungs creating a mind and body balance.

Breathing in this special salt that is dispersed in a specific way has been proven to help with sinus issues as well as a plethora of other ailments.  For those without ailments, this experience is a major stress reliever.  It is also said to help with energy levels, sleep issues, and overall well-being.  A dry throat is sometimes experienced and this is a normal effect.

The Himalayan salt used to build our cave came from Klodawa, Poland and contains 84 trace minerals (potassium, magnesium, chromium, copper, selenium, etc.) and is the purest form of salt on Earth.  Other activities such as Yoga, Pilates and Meditation can be held in our salt cave to enhance the experience.  Mineral deficiency is on the rise with over 50% of the population found to be suffering from lack of adequate minerals.  Poor diet, water softeners, and even certain medications can cause a leaching of minerals from your body.  A body deficient in minerals can lead to a variety of chronic illnesses as well as dental issues, irritated skin, muscle pain, and hormone instability.

​The number of treatments needed depends on the illness and the seriousness of the illness.  Everyone is different and reacts to the treatment differently.  Some notice effects after merely a few minutes and others after a few sessions.  Keep in mind Halotherapy is not a get healthy quick, instant relief steroid inhaler.  It is a drug-free all natural holistic treatment of the respiratory system that takes time.  The average number of sessions recommended by doctors in Europe is between 12-14.

There is research that dates back over 100 years and over the past century doctors and scientists have been supporting natural salt as a healthy alternative to the treatment of the respiratory system in the form of Halotherapy.  Going back to 1843, a Polish doctor by the name of Dr. Felix Boczkowski recognized the effects of salt on the workers in the Wieliczka salt mine in Poland.  He was the first to publish a written book which included texts about Salt Therapy.  After him was a German doctor by the name of Dr. Karl Hermann Spannagel who noticed improvements in the health of his patients as they hid in the Kluterthohle karst salt cave during WWII.  He was the next major physician who backed the irrefutable evidence of his patients.  Finally, in more recent years, Prof. Alina V. Chervinskaya, M.D., Ph.D. has spent the last 20 years devoting her life to supporting, developing and implementing the care that is now known as Halotherapy.
