History of Halotherapy
Halotherapy uses salt vapour to treat respiratory ailments, skin irritations and combat mental lethargy. The term “Halotherapy” comes from “halo”, the Greek word for salt. Salt has been used for thousands of years to treat myriads of common ailments, notably asthma and psoriasis.
Back in the mid-1800s, it was discovered that people who worked in the salt mines of Poland had a remarkably low rate of respiratory illnesses. Soon a clinic was placed within one of these salt mines to allow natural healing for respiratory ailments and it is still in operation today. In order to simulate the therapeutic eﬀects within salt mines, artificial caves were constructed on the surface in mainly Eastern European countries, where people would visit routinely to breathe the air which was saturated with beneficial salt particles and negatively charged ions.
With the advancement of technology, Halogenerators are used in salt rooms to generate the conditions in salt mines and also accelerate the beneficial eﬀects. A Halogenerator is the most important piece of equipment that transforms a chamber into a salt therapy room. It fills the air with a fine, dry salt mist of particles ranging in sizes from 1 to 5 microns, which have been clinically proven to deliver optimal results. Our Breathya salt havens are constructed using the same technology as the Halotherapy chambers that have been established across Europe, United States of America and other parts of the world.
