WHAT IS HALOTHERAPY?
Halotherapy, also known as Salt Therapy, is form of therapy that dates back as far as the 1800's from the Wieliczka Salt Mines in Poland. Salt rooms and salt therapy is a fairly new practice here in the States, but in Europe they are well known as a medicine-free therapy called Speleotherapy (cave therapy). Halotherapy (halo=salt) is a form of alternative medicine/treatment that involves breathing dry, salty air. A visit to the salt cave can have positive benefits from the inside out affecting body, mind and spirit.
Halotherapy mimics the natural microclimate of a salt cave by grinding and dispersing fine particles of salt in a high concentration via a halogenerator; in a room whose surfaces are covered with layers of salt. By using the newest top-of-the-line halogenerators to crush pharmaceutical grade salt into small particles for inhalation, which cleanses and sanitizes the airways to help clear congestion, it allows you to breathe more easily. By improving the pH levels, salt therapy is also fantastic for skin conditions. The salt room plays an important role in the relief of many health symptoms. Halotherapy is 100% drug-free. It can be used safely in combination with current medications and treatments to provide relief. Athletes interested in increasing performance will also benefit from halotherapy. Enjoy the health benefits of halotherapy while listening to soothing music while relaxing in our adult or children’s salt suites. Leave the cares of the world behind.
Halotherapy has many health benefits including, reduction of bronchial inflammation, removal of airborne pollen particles in the airways, strengthening of the immune system, decreasing allergic reaction to pollens, decreasing jetlag from travel, cleansing and sanitation of the airways, prevention and treatment of common colds and flu, improvement of dermatological disorders, cystic fibrosis, stress, anxiety, depression, reduction of snoring and a better sleep. It reduces the need for inhalers and antibiotics, alleviates sneezing, coughing, and shortness of breath, clears mucus and phlegm from the lungs. Salt therapy increases the resistance to respiratory tract diseases and makes breathing easier after a few sessions. Salt improves the quality of your life!
Salt therapy is highly recommended for children. It is a 100% drug-free, non-invasive and comfortable treatment with no side effects or potential health hazards. The treatment is suitable for children of any age (we recommend at least 1 month of age). Children, in fact, respond to the therapy even more quickly than adults do. Our salty kids have their own play and relaxation salt room that is made just for them!
During therapy, it is near impossible to be affected by bacteria or other infections/diseases in the room. A salt room’s microclimate is 3 times cleaner than that of a hospital’s sterile surgery room. Salt is a natural anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory. Salt kills almost all bacteria on contact. Our facility has a powerful filtered ventilation system that is constantly working to circulate the air in the salt room, drawing used air out and clean, filtered air in.

How Does It Work?
Salt has the following properties:
Mucolytic effects: loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport
Removes pathogen agents (airborne pollen)
Reduces IgE level (immune system oversensitivity)
A natural disinfectant, salt is antimicrobial, antibacterial and contains 84 needed minerals.
While relaxing in one of our treatment rooms, customers inhale the dry, salt-enriched air deep down into the lungs, where the healing benefits do their greatest healing. The salt loosens the mucus, which begins to clear quickly, and inflammation is reduced, which makes more room in the airways for you to breathe.
Pura Vida's advanced technology lets you experience the therapeutic benefits of Poland's salt mines without leaving your seat. Salt Therapy can be used as an all-natural, drug-free complement to traditional western medicine.
Salt therapy, otherwise known as Halotherapy, is one of the oldest forms of natural healing. The therapeutic benefits of salt therapy come with no harmful side effects and have been proven effective for both adults and children.
Salt therapy has been used to treat upper and lower respiratory conditions such as cold and flu, allergy, asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, sinus infection, sinusitis, rhinitis, hay fever and emphysema. In addition, the anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of salt have been shown to effectively treat conditions of the skin such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis.
