The use of salt cave therapy dates back to ancient Egypt and is currently used all over Europe, Canada, and some U.S. cities. Salt has anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties that provide healing benefits to the whole body – specifically the immune and respiratory systems. Salt therapy can help you breathe easier and live better – from the inside out!
In 1843, a Polish physician first wrote about the benefit of salt mines. He noted that salt miners had significantly lower rates of lung disease compared to the general population. He attributed the cause of the salt miners’ good health to the salt cave air, which was saturated with saline dust.
Halotherapy is beneficial to those that suffer from asthma, allergies, bronchitis, as well as skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, and acne.
Clinical studies have shown that patients have reduced their use of medications, hospital visits, and frequency of asthma and allergy attacks through the use of salt therapy.
Halotherapy is also recommended for healthy people, since it boosts the immune system and combats the pollutants, dust, and bacteria we breathe everyday. While breathing in the ocean’s salt air is great for the body, Halotherapy takes these benefits to a whole new level. Breathing in the vaporized dry salt ventilated through our therapy rooms allows negative ion charged particles to move more freely through both the upper and lower respiratory tracts.
The therapeutic inhalation of salt is made possible with the use of our state of the art halo-generator, which produces micro-sized salt particles.
As you inhale the salt, it moves deeply into your lungs, decreasing inflammation in the airways and helping your body to fight infection. The Halotherapy room also creates a negative ion environment that decreases stress, promotes relaxation, and increases an overall sense of well-being.
Our salt cave sessions include the additional benefit of our zero-gravity chairs.
Imported from France, our state-of-the-art Lafuma chairs will cradle your back and elevate your legs above your heart, increasing circulation to your vital organs and taking the strain off your musculoskeletal system. So sit back, breathe in the salt vapors, and regenerate – from head to toe!
Halotherapy has no side effects, and is safe for both adults and children.
It’s a great way to stay healthy during the long, damp Portland winters.
