An Introduction To Dry Salt Therapy

Salt therapy was first discovered in the middle of the 18th century by Polish health official Felix Botchkowski. Salt therapy was first identified in the form of Speleotherapy also known as Cave Therapy. Speleotherapy is the Greek term meaning cave. Speleotherapy treats respiratory disorders as well as some skin disorders, by using salt-rich caves in the underground. 

The natural salt microns and ions have proven to be efficient in relaxing an overly stressed respiratory tract. Salt is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps reduce swelling as well as edema within the airways and makes it easier as well as less uncomfortable to breathe.

The salt-saturated air that you breathe in removes bacteria and fungus from the mucosal linings of the respiratory tract. The salted air that is breathed reduces the amount of mucous that is in the lungs and makes it more readily expectorated. It is also confirmed to remove any remaining tar from smokers' lungs. 

Salt ions create an electrical charge that is negative in the air, which can improve mood, ease anxiety and stress, reduce fatigue, and can have other therapeutic effects. In an appointment it is possible for the patient to lie down inside the cave throughout the treatment. Each session can last between twenty to forty-five minutes, and it is repeated every day for up to 15 days. 

Treatments are suggested up to three times in a year. The treatment is usually not private. Patients are able to share a treatment space with up to thirty others. Salt therapy is also known as Halotherapy. It is derived in it's Greek term 'halos' which means salt.
