What is Halotherapy?
Halotherapy, also known as dry Salt Therapy, is a holistic approach that mimics the microclimate of a salt cave. You will breathe in the micro-sized salt particles, which are immediately transported to every part of the respiratory tract, even the smallest alveoli, and bronchioles. Then the dry salt molecules dissolve and attract small impurities, the reason why it is called the toothbrush of the lungs.
Salt therapy may eliminate the root of inflammatory respiratory illnesses in the lower and the upper tract like asthma, bronchitis as well as allergies, by destroying bacteria and restoring health and immunity.
Benefits of Salt
Ear Infections - Halotherapy can greatly relieve the swelling and pain that is common with an ear infection by penetrating the ear canal with salt particles. Salt as an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agent reduces the swelling of the tubes in your ear, allowing the fluid to drain. Over 70% of children suffer from ear infection.
Red and near-infrared light are part of the electromagnetic spectrum, and more specifically, part of the spectrum of light emitted by the sun. These wavelengths of light are “bioactive” in humans.
Red light between 600-700nm offer benefits for skin texture and tone, smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, promoting collagen production and generally rejuvenating the appearance of skin and hair.
Near-infrared light (NIR) 700nm – 1100nm. penetrates deeper into the tissues to assist with wound healing, muscle recovery, nerve injury, and joint pain.

NASA originally began experimenting with red light therapy on plant growth in space and then to help heal wounds in astronauts. Like many developments, other potential uses began to be investigated.
In fact, red light therapy is already widely medically accepted in its use in photodynamic therapy. In this therapy, low-power red laser light is used to activate a photosensitizer drug. The interaction creates a chemical reaction that destroys cells and is used to treat some skin conditions. (Cleveland Clinic)
Red light therapy is thought to work by acting on the “power plant” in your body’s cells called mitochondria. With more energy, other cells can do their work more efficiently, such as repairing skin, boosting new cell growth, and enhancing skin rejuvenation. More specifically, certain cells absorb light wavelengths and are stimulated to work.
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field devices used for to improve sleep, speed up healing and reduce pain. These devices send targeted energy pulses into the body to stimulate the cells and encourage faster, but still natural healing.
PEMF can give you a whole body treatment to help in number of issues and problems including general muscle pain or stiffness, poor circulation, and body aches. There are even some reports that PEMF may help with diabetes management, can encourage damaged bone to heal, and stimulate the organs.
PEMF devices are often used to help heal athletic injuries, because they deliver a focused pulse straight to the damaged tissue. With this aim in mind, they can be used on any part of the body to encourage healing and cell renewal.
PEMF can improve your sleeping patterns and help your body recover from the demands of the day as well as from long term aches and pains. Help reach every part of your body, so you may experience other benefits such as improved memory and mental focus as well as anti-aging effects.
Halotherapy offers the best results when practiced regularly. The benefits are cumulative, so consistency and frequency are the key. People with chronic issues will benefit greatly if visiting salt rooms at least 3-4 times a week. Those who are looking to incorporate Salt Therapy into their regular wellness routine would benefit from a weekly session. Halotherapy has been used on a daily basis without any side effects.
There are typically no side effects other than potential thirst. However, if someone is on any medications or suffers from any serious medical issue, please seek medical advice before any therapy.
As with all wellness services, always check with a doctor before starting any type of treatments if taking any medications or having any known health issues.
While there is a growing body of scientific research suggesting that modest amounts of red and NIR LED light may benefit certain eye conditions, our plug-in lights are very bright!
As such, goggles are provided and should be worn when facing the lights, particularly when NIR is active.
When using, DO NOT stare directly into the light emitting diodes (LEDs).
Again, our Red Lights are very bright and if you have any eye problems, or any other health conditions at all, please consult with a licensed healthcare professional before using a red light therapy device.
What is the recommended use time?
2-3 times a week 30 mins. Its safe, not painful to use, and there are no known side-effects.
