History of Salt Therapy

Centuries ago, the practice of visiting salt caves in Eastern Europe was quite common for the purpose of therapy. Salt caves like this were uncovered in the 1800s by salt miners in Poland. In essence, these caves represented the first known instances of what we now call halotherapy. Interestingly, the Polish miners working in these salt caverns did not suffer from respiratory ailments as other miners did. They were determined to be in robust health and did not fall ill from the colds and coughs like others in the community.

Ensuing research showed that it was the exposure to the salt that was creating a kind of fortification of the lungs and airways in the miners. The salt was working inside their bodies as a natural agent to prevent the miners from succumbing to respiratory symptoms and infections.

That led to a new movement, where people from all over the world came to open time in the mines and enjoy the benefits of Dry Salt Therapy.

How Halotherapy Works

Since those early days, Dry Salt therapy or Halotherapy has been extensively studied. The benefits of Salt Therapy for children come from the effects of inhaling 99.99% pure Grade Sodium Chloride (salt). The pure grade sodium chloride (salt) is placed in a halogenerator which releases the dry salt into the grinder. These particles are then dispersed by a blower/fan mechanism that pushes the salt particles into the salt room. Halotherapy is very beneficial to children suffering from allergies, nasal or bronchial inflammation, asthma and other respiratory disorders. Just 45-minutes in a salt room, such as the salt room for Children’s Halotherapy at Just Breathe in Winter Park, FL, can make a remarkable difference in respiratory health.

For children in Winter Park or surrounding areas who suffer from a range of conditions related to the respiratory or immune system, as well as certain skin conditions, Halotherapy provides a range of benefits.

Unlike other forms of treatment, Halotherapy is a passive experience. Rather than dosing children with medication or forcing them to undergo uncomfortable treatments, parents and caregivers can allow kids to relax in an enjoyable environment while they are simultaneously being treated.
