What is Halotherapy?

Have you heard of halotherapy? This isn’t a new treatment in any way, in fact, it’s been around for centuries from different parts of the world, mainly in Poland, and Eastern Europe. Now you can experience halotherapy from the Salt Suite right in the Florida area. Halotherapy or salt therapy, as it’s sometimes commonly called, is breathing in micro particles of salt.   The goal is treating the symptoms of several common ailments that millions of people experience every day. Let’s look a little deeper at what halotherapy can do for your body.

Where Halotherapy Comes From

The concept of Halotherapy first began in the salt mines of eastern Europe. It was discovered that those workers in the mines had fewer problems with their breathing and respiratory systems. The ones in the salt caves who breathed in the salt particles on a regular basis were in impeccable health.

People realized that breathing in the salty air was beneficial, so spas and clinics were developed around those natural salt caves or mines. It wasn’t until the early 90s though that salt therapy was created in a clinic-like environment. The way that it works now at the Salt Suite is a machine called the “halogenerator” distributes the salt particles throughout the salt rooms, so clients just sit back and breathe in the benefits.

Is Halotherapy Right for You?

If you suffer from any type of breathing or respiratory disorder, like asthma, chronic bronchitis, or allergies that affect your lungs, it may be time to try treating the symptoms with halotherapy at the Salt Suite. The salt air can also treat the symptoms of various skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis. Even children who have some of these conditions can take part in this all natural therapy too.

A session is around 45 minutes and all you have to do is relax and breathe in the salty air. We also have special rooms for children with toys and books geared towards their entertainment. Most people commit to a weekly regimen of sessions for best results. We offer packages that cater to a visit a week (4 x per month) or unlimited monthly visits if you feel that works best for you or your family.

“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 microparticles are blown into the air by halo generators. In our separate children’s room kids play in a big sandbox except with salt on the walls and floor and play while breathing in the dry salt air.”
