Halotherapy Research

The research to back up the effectiveness of halotherapy or “salt therapy” is very sound. Over the years since halotherapy has been modernized out of the salt caves and into clinics that can provide salt room chambers, the benefits people have experienced, especially in the case of respiratory diseases is promising. Let’s take a look at some of the more widely read studies to find out exactly what the halotherapy research is telling us about how beneficial salt therapy truly can be.

The Chervinskaya Studies

Dr. Alina Chervinskaya is the head of the Scientific and Clinical Center of Preventive and Rehabilitation Pulmonology of the Sokolove Clinical Hospital in St. Petersburg, Russia. Her work in determining whether or not a salt room could improve respiratory conditions in people is amazing. In a study that she and her team did in “Halotherapy of Respiratory Diseases” it was with the results that, in fact, with the right conditions present in the halotherapy room, a patient would experience significant relief. The salt just needed to be aerosol in the room at the right concentration, hypo bacterial, and an allergen-free environment that was pleasant to be in. Just like our rooms at the Salt Suite.

Studies On Dermatology Relating To Halotherapy Research

The doctor also did another study that related to the effects of halotherapy and skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and how it helped heal the skin after dermatology procedures. It’s called the “Prospects of Halotherapy in Dermatology and Cosmetology.”

 This study also specifically makes mention of how a halogenerator is a medical grade piece of equipment (in several countries in Europe)  that pumps the finely aerated salt particles in the salt rooms for treatment and has made a huge difference in the quality of modern day salt rooms.

Halotherapy Research For Children

The research on halotherapy treatment isn’t just for adults either. Children, including those with asthma or chronic allergies, have been the focal point of various studies. In “Halotherapy As Asthma Treatment In Children” the researchers found that in a quality of life questionnaire after a group of 5-13-year-olds had undergone 7 weeks of sessions, they did have symptom improvement.

So you can see across various illnesses and age groups that have been studied extensively, halotherapy research is definitely showing how simply salt can improve a variety of conditions.

“During a typical adult session customers put their feet up in a comfortable leather chair rest or read and breathe in a dry salt aerosol. The micro particles are blown in the air by halo generators. In our separate children’s room kids play in a big sand box except with salt on the walls and floor and play while breathing in the dry salt air.”
