The History of Halotherapy

Halotherapy, (Halo - Greek for salt) or dry salt therapy, involves breathing in tiny micron sized salt particles to improve your breathing and alleviate symptoms of certain lung conditions and also may help with skin conditions and allergies.

Speleotherapy, a practice which involves visiting salt caves or chambers for therapeutic reasons, has been a common practice in Europe since the 12th century. Despite workings in mines all day, Polish miners in the 1800s, were usually very healthy, & weren't as likely to get colds or coughs. It was then concluded that the exposure to the salt dust helped to keep their lungs free from allergies, inflation, infection, and strengthened their immune system.​​

Some of the first Halotherapy salt chambers opened around 1960 in Eastern Europe. They were destination health sanatoriums and respiratory hospitals, paid for by the socialized medical system of those countries. Over time Halotherapy grew even more popular in the 1980s and 1990s, health and beauty resorts & spas throughout Europe began to build salt rooms with Halotherapy as one of their restorative treatments.
