The Healing Benefits of Halotherapy

The health benefits of halotherapy (also known as salt therapy) have been known for a very long time. For centuries, people have trusted the benefits of halotherapy to relieve respiratory illnesses, improve skin conditions and strengthen their immune systems.

What is Halotherapy?

As the salt is inhaled, it travels through the sinuses and respiratory tract absorbing moisture, cleansing, clearing mucus and killing bacteria. Studies have shown that people with chronic upper respiratory conditions, seasonal allergies, sinusitis, bronchitis, and skin disorders can derive significant benefits from halotherapy.
