This form of treatment started in Poland in 1843 when the health of local salt miners was checked. It turned out that the salt miners never suffered from respiratory illnesses. Modern science confirms that salt therapy is an effective method to strengthen the lungs and the respiratory system and this of course contributes to our general wellbeing. The treatment has a relaxing and calming effect.
The therapeutic effect of salt is absorbed deep into the lungs from the air and it strengthens the immune system and increases the body’s resistance to cold and flu. The core agent in salt room therapy is the clean, dry, and very fine salt that is dusted in the air with a salt generator.
