Salt Therapy History


Salt therapy has been widely used for centuries across Europe and Asia, where people travel long distances to spend only short time inside salt mines. This helps them to relieve symptoms of respiratory conditions such as allergies, asthma, COPD, and TB, as well as common colds and the flu.

In Poland around the 1950s, it was observed that miners rarely ever had to deal with any respiratory illnesses. Further research revealed this was due to the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities of the salt.

In today's technology-driven world, we are able to develop a salt cave and recreate the same microclimate that is found in a natural salt mine. This is done through a halogenerator. Salt caves are now developing and becoming very popular all across the world, including the United States.
