Salt therapy (Halotherapy) is a scientifically-proven treatment for respiratory conditions. Halotherapy is a natural, effective and safe method of treatment for various disease as well as good remedy for respiratory hygiene and wellness. It improves conditions of the lungs and skin, strengthens the protective functions by means of dry salt aerosol with controlled levels of its concentrations.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SPELEOTHERAPY AND HALOTHERAPY
Speleotherapy is a therapeutic method that utilises the unique microclimate of underground salt caves and salt mines to alleviate the symptoms of several respiratory problems and skin conditions.
Halotherapy, otherwise known as Salt Therapy, uses modern technology ( HALOGENERATOR ) to reproduce the therapeutic conditions found in natural salt caves in a modern, spa-like room. Salt Therapy patients sit in comfortable chairs and listen to soothing music, while breathing in superfine particles of salt that cleanse the lungs of bacteria, irritants, and pollution; and reduce inflammation of the respiratory tract.
Halotherapy was invented in 1982 in Russia. Since then, thousands of patients have been successfully treated in Russia, Germany, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Canada, UK, Australia, USA, Ireland, UAE, and Indonesia.
Yet.. only Controlled Halotherapy is effective and safe!
Controlled Halotherapy developped by the Halomed Medical Head, prof. Alina V. Chervinskaya, enables to recreate optimal and safe aerosol parameters for a group of the salt room’ visitors due to the constant monitoring and options of selection and maintaining the optimal level of concentration of dry salt aerosol produced by halogenerators Halomed.
The word halotherapy comes from the Greek, halo, for salt. It is a modern holistic method that mimics the natural microclimate of salt mines.
This is achieved by the use of a special device – a Halogenerator, which grinds salt into a fine powder and then disperses dry salt aerosol into a room. It controls the concentration of aerosol and the size of salt particles.

Basing on the many years experience Halomed presents the modern standards of the true effective halogenerators:
Sophisticated Halomed halogenerators for salt rooms use integrated solutions for generating right healthy salt aerosol and control of its quality, concentration and airflows distribution in the salt rooms.
The last generation of Halomed salt aerosol generators relies on hi tech feedback function to provide the necessary level of controlled concentration of dry salt aerosol (DSA) of the highest quality (respirable fraction from 0.5-5 microns) inside salt rooms.
For more than 20 years dry salt aerosol, administered in specially-designed salt (halo) chambers, has been used to treat upper and lower respiratory conditions such as cold and flu, allergy, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, sinus infection, sinusitis, rhinitis, hay fever and emphysema.
In addition, the anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of dry sodium chloride aerosol has been shown to effectively treat ear infections and conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis
Halotherapy provides the additional benefit of treatment in controlled conditions. The temperature, humidity and sodium chloride flow are constantly monitored to give optimum effect. The client is able to relax in the Salt Room which offers a spa like atmosphere.
Dry sodium chloride aerosol containing particles of 1-5 microns in size are blown into this room by a halogenerator. In order to treat varying conditions, the rooms are saturated with dry sodium chloride aerosol at a mass concentration varying from 1-15 mg/m3 . Typically asthma treatment involves drugs which include steroids that may have harmful side effects. Salt therapy has no side effects or negative interaction with other medication.
