All about Salt Therapy

Salt Therapy a.k.a. Halotherapy is a powerful, natural treatment in a controlled air medium that simulates the natural salt cave microclimate to treat respiratory and skin conditions. This is no health fad – from the ancient Greeks to modern-day doctors, medical experts have championed its amazing effects.

It helps with these diseases:

What is the Salt Cave?

The Salt Cave is a chain of clinics providing 100% natural, effective, risk-free Salt Therapy treatments.
Visitors merely sit back in one of our treatment rooms, where the healing micro-climate of a natural salt cave is reproduced
by the most advanced device called Breeze Tronic Pro.

The Salt Cave brings The story into the modern day

After becoming passionate about the efficacy of Salt Therapy, founder Denes Gal began a journey of consultation
with scientists and doctors to develop Breeze Tronic Pro, the most sophisticated technology for replicating a salt cave.

Strategic sensors are just one of the ways the salt levels in the atmosphere are continually monitored in our treatment rooms.
Breeze Tronic Pro is far superior to cheaper options, which are ineffective and potentially harmful.

How does it work?

Airways before and after Salt Therapy

Salt has the following properties:

  • Antibacterial
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Mucolytic effects: loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport
  • Removes pathogen agents (airborne pollen)
  • Reduces IgE level (immune system oversensitivity)

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. Symptoms subside, sometimes for up to 12 months.

Salt Therapy can
significantly help to:

  • Reduce your Child's need for inhalers and antibiotics
  • Make your Child's breathing easier after just a few sessions
  • Improve your Child's lung function
  • Reduce the number of hospital admissions
    and prolong remission times
  • Alleviate sneezing, coughing, and shortness of breath
  • Clear mucus and sticky phlegm from the lungs
  • Increase your Child's resistance to respiratory tract diseases
  • Strengthen your Child's immune system
  • Improve sleep patterns
  • Improve your Child's general health and quality of life
  • The treatment's efficacy is estimated at 75-98%

The NHS Project

In 2011 The Salt Cave was invited by the NHS to participate
in a pilot project, as part of the Personal Health Budget program,
to provide therapy for a COPD sufferer, called Clara Buffong.
The NHS paid for her treatment and they monitored her for over a year.

Clara Buffong, who took part in the project and explains:

The Salt Cave changed my life. Before I visited the Salt Cave I was on lots of antibiotics and steroids,
none of which made me feel much better. I was basically confined to my house, and hated to be around people
as my breathing was so noisy. However, this has now changed thanks to salt therapy.
I know I will never get completely better, but the Salt Cave lets me live again and manage my illness
in a way that I can enjoy my life again. When I walk out of the Salt Cave I feel high on life. I call it my heaven on earth.
If salt therapy can work for me it can work for anybody, so I urge all COPD sufferers to give it a go

From 1st April 2014 everyone, who is eligible
for NHS Continuing Healthcare funding, has the right to apply for Personal Health Budget.
If you apply for Personal Health Budget, together with your NHS team (such as a GP) you will develop a care plan. The plan sets out your personal health and wellbeing needs, the health outcomes you want to achieve, the amount of money in the budget and how you are going to spend it. You can use a personal health budget to pay for a wide range of items and services, including therapies, personal care and equipment. New patients found eligible for Continuing Healthcare from 1st April 2014 also have the same rights.

Medical Studies

In clinical trials Salt Therapy (a.k.a. “halotherapy") has proven to be effective in relieving symptoms of a variety of respiratory
and skin ailments. During one of the clinical trials, Salt Therapy resulted in improvement of the clinical state in:

  • 85% of mild and moderate asthma cases
  • 75% of severe asthma cases
  • 97% of chronic bronchitis bronchiectasis and cystic fibrosis cases

Why is dry aerosol salt therapy more effective than other forms of the therapy?

Amongst dry aerosol technology there are also other types of salt therapy claiming to be just as effective. This is not true.

There are two ways salt therapy is commonly sold: the first is by placing large amounts of salt or salt bricks in a room.  The reason this treatment method effective is, that not enough salt can evaporate into the room with the right particle sizes for the different conditions being treated.  You would have to spend hours in a room like this to feel any effect and the hundreds of other clients coming in and out would use up the salt air very quickly.

The second method is wet salt therapy. Within this technique a saline solution is evaporated into the air and breathed in by clients.  Although this is more effective than the first method, the wet salt only reaches the upper airways and sticks to the nose and mouth, not reaching the throat or the deepest part of the lungs and sinuses. This reduces the salt’s phlegm dissolving properties because it doesn’t get to the places where the salt’s effect would be most needed.  This is why spending a few days on the beach is less effective than an hour in a dry aerosol salt room.

With our dry saline aerosol technology we measure, calculate and regulate the salt concentration per each particle size range (small, medium, large). This way we can treat on a very efficient way clients at the same time with various respiratory conditions.
