About Salt Therapy

The salt room environment has been proven in various European clinical studies to alleviate respiratory and skin ailments ranging from colds, asthma, seasonal allergies, sinus infections, hay fever, eczema and more.


A study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that long-term natural treatment in a salt room had a positive impact on lung function and reduced pulmonary exacerbation.


Scientists and researchers developed salt therapy as a means of concentrating the positive effects of salt observed in nature.



How it works


There are three primary characteristics of pure sodium chloride, NaCl, known as salt. Salt is anti-bacterial, salt is super absorbent and salt is anti-inflammatory.

Dry salt is placed into a halogenerator that precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles. During your session, the salt aerosol is dispersed into the air while you simply breathe and relax.


As the salt travels in the salt room, these salt particles are inhaled into the respiratory system. Dry salt naturally stars absorbing allergens, toxins and foreign substances into the lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Because everything in our respiratory system is moist, any pathogen that comes in contact with the salt becomes neutralized and absorbed, salt is also water soluble so your body can now dispose of the pathogens through your waste system.


The properties of dry salt also absorb impurities and provide antibacterial properties that benefit the skin. The smaller particles can reach beneath the skin’s surface and absorb moisture towards the skin.

European scientific research has found that inhaled dry salt particles have bactericide, mucokinetic, hydrophilic, and anti-inflammatory properties, which may help to reduce inflammation in the entire respiratory tract and widen the airway passages.

Breathe Better

Just sit, relax and inhale. With every breath, micro-particles of salt enter the airways, remove toxicity from the respiratory system and help clear away excess mucus. Healthy lungs equals better breathing

Reduce Stress

Improved health, higher oxygen intake and increased energy naturally result in reduced stress levels and overall health

Boost Your Immune System

Salt therapy boosts the immune system by killing bacteria in the respiratory system

Improve Your Skin

Dry salt impacts the skin microcirculation and assists cellular membrane activity improving skin regeneration and function, and may help with conditions such as eczema.

Reduce Inflammation

Inhaled dry salt particles have bactericide, hydrophilic and anti-inflammatory properties that can improve your overall wellness through reduced inflammation throughout the body.

Aid in Better Sleep

A clean respiratory system naturally results in higher oxygen intake, increased energy and better quality of sleep

Cleanse Your Airways

Salt therapy cleanses the lungs and invigorates the entire body with increased lung capacity and oxygen intake


Like bathing in the ocean, salt pulls water and toxins from the body as salt allows the body to detoxify by opening the pores. It softly exfoliates, relaxes the hands and feet, and stimulates the entire central nervous system for repair. It will leave your whole-body tingling and decompressed.

CNN reporter Monita Rajpal recently did an informative report on how salt therapy treatments are being used at The Salt Cave London to help patients dealing with respiratory and sinus related issues. She gives a thorough overview of salt therapy, it’s history, and shows pictures of some of the other salt therapy spas around the world.

Benefits of Salt Therapy

The calming and detoxifying effects of salt therapy support the immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. Additional benefits are reduced stress and anxiety, reduced occurrence of headaches, increased energy level, and better sleep patterns. Salt ions purify the air, increase lung capacity and reduce physical ailments for adults, children and athletes. Treatments are also recommended to help keep the body healthy during flu or allergy seasons.

Skin conditions can also be improved with salt therapy (psoriasis, skin rash, eczema, acne). Pure mineral salts have natural moisturizing properties and support the skin’s water balance and barrier function by attracting moisture to the skin. Minerals are necessary for cell function and detoxification, so mineral salts have strong rejuvenating properties.

The salt rooms room at Saltastic are a visually beautiful place to experience salt therapy, energy healing, reflexology or massages.  Naturally crushed salt on the floor and various salt lamps throughout the space offer a large surface for the generation of salt aerosols and negative ions release, consequently engaging the maximum therapeutic and energy potential. Exposure to negative air ions reduces stress and enhances overall performance. Negative ions increase blood and oxygen supplies to the brain, they also provide a boost of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which literally creates the feeling of happiness.

The Himalayan salt walls produce a soft light in hues of ambient orange, yellow and red that helps with stress, attention deficit disorder, and general relaxation, among others. The serene, soothing light is thought to balance physical, spiritual and emotional energies.

Clinical Studies & Research

Salt has been used for its healing and therapeutic qualities for thousands of years from a variety of geographic regions and cultures. In modern times, Halotherapy, has been observed and researched with recorded studies that go as far back as the early 1800s from physicians and scientists throughout Europe and the Far East. In the past few decades, more recent and current clinical studies have been published showing the efficacy of dry salt therapy and its application to various conditions.

Most of the current research and clinical studies are based in the countries where dry salt therapy has been a health and wellness modality for the past few decades such as Russia, Hungary, Poland, Finland, Israel, Italy and other geographic locations. These studies have been conducted by licensed medical professionals, clinical researchers, and have been published in various medical journals and publications such as the US National Library of Medicine and the National Institutes of Health. Some of the current research and published articles focus on how dry salt therapy impacts bronchitis, chronic obstructive lung diseases (COPD), asthmatics, dermatology, and other conditions. The Salt Therapy Association is also leading the way with supporting additional medical and clinical studies in the United States and abroad to further the research, development and efficacy of dry salt therapy/Halotherapy.

Dry salt therapy (Halotherapy) is not recommended for people with contagious diseases, fever, open wounds, cancer, severe hypertension, mental disorders and active tuberculosis. Pregnant women should consult with their doctor before using dry salt therapy. Anyone with serious health concerns need to seek proper medical advice and care.
