Speleotherapy is very popular in the former Soviet Union and numerous Eastern European countries, where the treatments have been practiced in old salt mines since the early 19th century. Salt Therapy is completely natural.
Since the natural salt caves and salt mines are not conveniently located for most people, Halotherapy – recreating the conditions of the salt caves – was developed. Halotherapy belongs to the category of the physical therapies / non-drug and non-invasive treatments of diseases.

What is Halotherapy?
Halotherapy, also called salt therapy ("halos" in Greek means salt), is a drug-free and completely natural therapy with no side effects. It takes place in a controlled air environment that simulates the special microclimate of actual salt caves and salt mines.
Halotherapy stems from the even older “Speleotherapy” ("speleo" means cave) that historically utilized salt mines as the venue for the therapy. Salt mines and their therapeutic properties have been noted since Hippocrates. According to accounts, medieval monks took the sick to the salt caves and let them breathe in the salt particles, which were created while the monks were crushing the stalactites.

Therapeutic Actions of Halotherapy
How many treatments will I need?
This varies widely among individuals, and the condition being treated is a big factor. Some conditions with milder symptoms will improve or dissipate within just a few sessions. You may have some relief after one session; however, for the best results we recommend a series of treatments. Those with chronic conditions most likely need to come 3-4 times a week for the first 6-8 weeks. Those who come for stress relief and relaxation simply come as often as they like. For many conditions, after a series of sessions, symptoms subside and relief can last for several months before another session is needed. It can also be used as a preventative measure to strengthen the immune system against colds, cough, allergies, and sinusitis.
