What Is Halotherapy?

In the 19th century, a doctor in Poland discovered something interesting about his patients who worked in the salt mines. Unlike men who worked in other kinds of mines, they had no respiratory issues. In fact, most were in excellent health. 

What made the difference, the doctor concluded, was the salt. 

Clinical studies have shown inhaling salty air can reduce inflammation, fight infection, clear blockages, and ease discomfort in the respiratory system. 

Where your health is concerned, the crystallized mineral we know as salt is something of a superhero, a powerful antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent that can help right many wrongs, including 

  • excessive mucus; 
  • sinus infection; 
  • digestive issues; 
  • depression; 
  • skin conditions; and 
  • immune system oversensitivity.  

Aerosolized salt also has proved an effective remedy for asthma, stress, depression, and eczema. And the best news? No longer do you have to go to a salt cave to get it.  

That’s because today there’s salt halotherapy, which can be as close as your own home if you have a halotherapy sauna or other confined space outfitted with a salt-therapy generator from Wellness Shop. 

Good for the lungs and skin 

We sell two salt-therapy generators for halotherapy at home: 

Both of these boxlike devices are easily installed. And, once installed, a salt-therapy generator—sometimes called a halo-generator—aerosolizes the salt you put in it and circulates it through the air for you to breathe.  

Powered by a rechargeable battery, the Microsalt SaltProX is effective in saunas and rooms as big as 500 cubic feet with humidity of 40 percent or less. And it’s portable; you can stand it up instead of hanging it on the wall. 

The Jacuzzi® HaloOne is equipped with saline-based technology that sprays throughout a sauna cabin a saline mist that reaches deep into the lungs.  

Besides entering the lungs, salt particles from a halo-generator also are absorbed by the skin, there to help with conditions such as eczema, which causes the skin to become red, itchy, and inflamed. 


Let the Wellness Shop help 

Halotherapy is a holistic treatment deep-rooted in ancient healing practices dating back to the 12th century, when people spent time in salt caves for their healing powers. Because it is both natural and effective, it has long been a popular spa treatment.  

And now, thanks to the halotherapy generator, it’s making its way into the average home. 

If you’re thinking of outfitting your sauna or a room in your house for halotherapy, call one of Wellness Shop’s seven locations, complete the questions form on our website, or chat online with one of our experts.  

We’ll help you find the right salt-therapy generator for you and the right place for it in your sauna or home.
