Halo is Greek for salt. This therapy is centuries old. European monks noticed that patients with respiratory ailments got better faster after spending time in natural salt caverns.
Salt therapy is similar to spending time in the salty sea air, which offers many more benefits than just relaxation on the beach. There are thousands of salt rooms in Europe and beyond.
Salt levels affect our cell activity, energy and blood sugar levels. The negatively charged ions in salt improve our health and mood. Inhaling particles may reduce inflammation and mucus in the lungs, improving respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinus congestion and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). Scientific studies show that people with asthma and other ailments breathe easier after halo-therapy. The calming and detoxifying effects of halo-therapy can support the immune, nervous and lymphatic systems.
