Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is Halotherapy?
Halotherapy, also called Salt Therapy ["halos" in Greek means salt], is a drug-free and completely
natural therapy with no side effects. It takes place in a dry, sterile, and hermetic environment that
recreates the natural microclimate identical to ancient salt caves and salt mines. Halotherapy has
been proven beneficial for different respiratory and skin disorders. Read more..
2. How does Halotherapy work?
Throughout the therapy salt aerosol is constantly scattered into the air for the patients to breathe in.
The salt aerosol consists of tiny and dry salt particles, in sizes between 1-5 mkm, which are ground
in a special salt generator. The aerosolized microparticles of salt can penetrate deep into the lungs
and bronchi and deposit upon the surface, destroying bacteria and fungi. The anti-bacterial,
anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory properties of dry sodium chloride aerosol has been show to be
beneficial for upper and lower respiratory problems, infections, and conditions of the skin such as
eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. Read more..

and a triple HEPA filtration installed in the air conditioning system.
