Our salt rooms, are specially designed to enhance breathing, skin appearance and mood. The floor is covered in Pink Himalayan Salt with additional Salt Panels on the walls and Salt Lamps strategically located within the room. The salt covering is decorative, but also has practical functions. It assists in maintaining temperature, humidity and hypobacterial conditions, and absorbs sound. The salt on the walls and floor also lend negative ions to the room.
The white salt environment in combination with comfortable zero gravity chairs, soft illumination and fresh pure air create a quiet, peaceful atmosphere where people can relax and get away from their daily worries and cares.
How does the technology work?
Our salt roomss are equipped with newest state of the art Halomed Halogenerators designed by Dr. Alina Chervinskaya, the leading expert in Halotherapy who has worked in the field of preventative, restorative, and rehabilitative medicine, pulmonology, and physiotherapy for over 20 years. The halogenerators, a specialized nebulizer, grind pharmaceutical grade dry salt into aerosol particles of 1-5 um in size. The halogenerator is situated in an interconnecting room and brings a flow of clean, dry air, saturated with highly dispersed negatively charged particles of sodium chloride into the therapeutic room. The halogenerator has a microprocessor that monitors and maintains the temperature, relative humidity and mass concentration of aerosol in the chamber. The concentration of dry salt aerosol can be adjusted to the most beneficial concentration for a certain condition. For example, someone with cystic fibrosis or psoriasis would get better results with a higher concentration of salt than is necessary to treat allergies or COPD. After each therapy session, air in the room is completely vented and new air is pumped into the room in preparation for a new treatment session.
Salt therapy is new to the US. How do you know that the therapy you receive is truly beneficial? Not all salt rooms are the same. A therapeutic salt room requires the proper equipment, layout, and proper materials.
-Therapeutic levels of salt must be driven by a dry salt aerosol generator with the ability to control both concentration of the salt in the air and breathable particle size. Particles larger than 5 microns do not penetrate into the lungs where the action is needed.
-Proper design of heating, ventilation and humidification systems of the Halotherapy center.
-Treatment room size must be appropriate with the Halogenerator aerosol output.
-Halogenerators of many salt rooms give a constant output of salt. To be therapeutic, there should be a sensor device than can analyze that amount of salt in the room and adjust to maintain the necessary level for effective treatment and health improvement.
-Inhaling too much salt aerosol during a therapy session can be dangerous and cause bronchospasm and other side effects. Some clinics use devices that produce aerosol from water based saline solution for inhalation during treatments and call this Halotherapy. In many cases such clinics use humidifiers filled with salt solution instead of water. Research shows that humid aerosol is not as effective as dry salt aerosol. Moreover, many people feel discomfort in a humid salt fog and there is danger of side effects for some people.
