Halotherapy (in Garfield location only)

Halo therapy (HT) is a mode of treatments in a controlled air medium which stimulates a natural salt cave microclimate. Halo in Greek means ‘salt.’ Its origins date back to early 1800s in Poland where locals noticed that men working at Wielicka Salt Mine enjoyed better health and younger looking skin. Russians conducted a series of experiments documenting the benefits of dry salt therapy. Based one research conducted in 15 Russian hospitals (from 1991 to 1994), over 4,700 patients both adults and children have been evaluated with various types of pulmonary diseases. Halo therapy course consisted of 10 to 20 daily sessions. HT treatment resulted in improvement of clinical state in 85% of mild and moderate asthma cases, 75% of severe asthma cases and 97% of chronic bronchitis and bronchiectasis. Sessions entail relaxing and unwinding in our salt room for approximately one hour while breathing in fine salt aerosol.

Long term examination of patients for one or more years demonstrated the effect of Halotherapy on
reduction in the frequency of exacerbations and reduction in chronic symptoms. Following the fall of the
Soviet Union, the technology spread quickly across Western Europe.

Salt is naturally anti-microbial, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. When inhaled into the lungs it
opens airway passages by reducing inflammation, drawing out moisture, and killing off unwanted
substances and toxins that we are exposed to daily in our environment, food and air. People who suffer
from allergies, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis and COPD are just a few of the all respiratory illnesses
that experience relief through salt therapy. Salt thereapy is also great for the skin and hair- it kills off
bacteria and helps with cell regeneration. It reduces symptoms for patients with conditions like acne,
eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
