Salt Room Therapy also called Halo therapy (from the Greek word Halos, meaning Salt) is a drug free and completely natural therapy with no side effects.

Description of salt Room:

The salt room is entirely covered with imported predefined mixture of untreated salts and specific minerals, causing a strong negative ionization of the room air, which on its part eases respiration.

Mechanism of Salt Room:

Halo generator is a machine in the salt room, which we feed with 99.9% of imported pure sodium chloride derived from predefined mixture of untreated salt and specific minerals which are inhalable. Pharma grade particles of 2 to 4 microns are present in the treatment room in the form of aerosols at a specific micro climate for the micro particles to be clinically effective.

Salt emits negative ions. Injured and diseased cells are electron deficient, so submitting the body to an electron rich environment benefits and heals cells by absorption. When patient breathes or is exposed to the micro particles it has 3 major clinical actions: bacteriostatic, bactericidal and T-Lymphocyte action. When salt is inhaled, it travel through the sinuses and respiratory tract absorbing moisture, cleansing mucus and killing bacteria.
