Centuries ago, European monks noticed something interesting: when they treated respiratory ailments in natural salt caverns, their patients’ health got increasingly better, faster. In the 1840s, Dr. Felix Boczkowski, the state authority for occupational health in Poland, saw the same thing was true with salt miners. As the workers were mining the salt, micro-sized salt particles were being disbursed into the air. He had noticed that while coal miners were plagued with all kinds of respiratory problems, salt miners were emerging with pristine lungs and no health complaints. In-depth studies on the salt miners began to show, in ideal conditions below the Earth’s surface where air pressure and circulation, humidity and temperature affected the quality of the environment, that by simply breathing in the salt dust particles they rarely had any respiratory issues, and also looked younger due to great skin appearance!
Jumping ahead to modern day. The first public halotherapy salt chambers opened in the 1960s in Eastern Europe. These initial salt rooms were designated health sanatoriums and respiratory hospitals. As halotherapy grew more popular in the 1980s and 1990s, health and beauty resorts throughout Europe and Scandinavia began to install salt rooms and offer halotherapy as one of their restorative treatments. Today, salt rooms and caves are being established around the world as a way to treat and possibly cure numerous respiratory conditions with a natural, drug free option.

Salt Therapy acts like an exfoliant by shedding dead cells to help promote healthy oil production. It promotes the normal levels of the skin’s PH-balance, fortifying the skin’s protective barrier. It gently yet effectively boosts exfoliation by removing dead skin cells and debris from the skin’s surface.
