A brief history of Salt Room Therapy

Salt therapy has its origins from the salt mines and caves of Eastern Europe. Modern dry salt therapy has its origins from the salt mines and caves in Europe and Russia. As the workers were mining the salt (through chiseling, grinding and hammering at the salt), micro-sized salt particles were being disbursed into the air. Additionally, there were ideal conditions below the Earth’s surface where air pressure and circulation, and humidity and temperature affected the quality of the environment. In this environment, miners were receiving many natural health benefits by breathing in the salt particles. Considering that mining jobs were usually recognized as dangerous to life and health, salt miners seemed to thrive on good health. They rarely had any respiratory issues and also looked younger due to great skin appearance.

About Halotherapy

Salt has been around since the beginning of time and has been used throughout history in all sorts of ways as a common cooking ingredient, as a preservative, and even as currency in centuries past. Salt is one of the essential ingredients that constitute life. Salt has also been utilized in various therapeutic, healing and medicinal ways including saline solutions, nebulizers, skin scrubs, salt baths, Nettie pots, etc… mostly known as wet salt therapy. In our modern society, thanks to technological innovations, another aspect of salt therapy has emerged where the main health benefit comes from the salt’s quality to absorb moisture. It is called Dry Salt Therapy and is also known as Halotherapy.

Regarding preventative respiratory hygiene, while there are no long-term studies that provide evidence that halotherapy can be used as a preventative measure for this coronavirus (COVID-19), it is widely known that dry salt therapy has antibacterial properties that could be beneficial.
