What is Halotherapy?
The method is based on dosed stay in attractively designed salt room that is made from natural rock salt and is used for the treatment of chronic and allergic disorders. Halotherapy term is in use since the mid 1980’s. The name comes from the Greek word Halo, which means salt, so you can easily say that halotherapy is salt therapy. The beneficial effects of this sort of therapy have been known for centuries and are supported by abundant medical literature.
Halotherapy evolved from speleotherapy. While speleotherapy uses only natural conditions of salt caves or salt mines, halotherapy use modern technology to create a therapeutic micro adjustable, and the most favorable conditions for the patient.
