Salt Therapy (Halotherapy)

What is salt therapy?

Active salt therapy is a natural approach to addressing many respiratory ailments and skin conditions, such as, asthma, sinusitis, eczema, and psoriasis. A special piece of equipment known as a halogenerator grinds and crushes pure sodium chloride into micro-sized particles that are dispersed into the air. The room will then be filled with a fine mist of salt to begin your journey of complete wellness and relaxation.
