**The salt cave is a taxable service.**
Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy - from the Greek word "halos" which means "salt", is a holistic modality that mimics the micro-climate of a natural salt cave. The origins date back to the 1800's from the salt mines in Eastern Europe. The men that worked in the salt mines, chiseling and hammering salt into micro particles that they were inhaling day in and day out, were noticed to be thriving with good health, strong respiratory systems, and younger, healthier looking skin which was opposite to health issues in other types of miners. This phenomenon was noticed by Dr. Feliks Boczkowski who founded and opened the first salt mine health resort in Poland in 1839. For over a hundred years, natural salt mines and caves have been used for their natural healing benefits, in 1985 the first halo generator was produced and modern Halotherapy was "born".
How it works...
Active salt rooms/caves, like our very own Luna Salt Cave, use a halo generator. Pharmaceutical grade salt is added, ground into tiny particles and dispersed and circulated throughout the enclosed cave through a unique process generated by a halo generator. These salt particles are inhaled into the respiratory system and distributed across skin to help alleviate a number of inflammatory issues. With natural antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, the dry salt naturally begins absorbing allergens and toxins throughout the respiratory system helping with symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, COPD, cystic fibrosis, seasonal allergies and much more. By absorbing impurities on the skin, reducing inflammation and decreasing itching and irritated skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and acne. Salt lamps distributed throughout the cave are said to produce negatively charged ions that can improve health and mood by helping to reduce stress, increase energy, reduce headaches and promote better sleep patterns. Halotherapy offers best results when practiced regularly, benefits are cumulative, consistency and frequency are key when addressing chronic inflammatory issues.
