What is Salt Therapy ?

Whilst relaxing in our Salt Room, premium pharmaceutical grade salt is precisely ground and crushed into micro-sized particles in a Halogenerator which is then dispersed into the salt room. As the salt travels around the room, salt particles are inhaled deep into the lungs, bronchi, bronchioles and alveoli. The non-inhaled salt particles fall onto the skin, absorbing allergens, toxins and foreign substances.
