Halotherapy is an all-natural, drug-free therapy that benefits the lungs and skin. The 1- to 5-micron halogenerator precisely disperses salt particles into the specially constructed negative ionized salt room.
Dry salt aerosol has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects in the respiratory tract, while helping clear mucus and stimulate the body's natural immune defenses. That stimulates the cleansing ability of the lungs and reduces inflammation.
Clinical studies have shown that salt therapy reduces inflammation and leaves patients breathing easier. Some patients use halotherapy treatments to reduce their use of medications, the number of times they have to visit the hospital, and the frequency of asthma and allergy attacks.
