History of Halotherapy, Salt Therapy
Halotherapy also known as Salt Therapy is a form of alternative medicine which makes use of salt. Numerous forms of Halotherapy have been known of and used throughout the years.
The effectiveness of holistic Salt Therapy for the respiratory system dates back as far as 1843 when a Polish doctor noticed and documented that workers of a salt mine did not suffer from respiratory problems that inflicted the general public. This discovery led to the development of Speleotherapy - a therapy treatment in an underground salt cave where patients would spend hours in such caves, receiving the benefits to their health.
In today's context, many people would be reluctant to, or couldn’t, travel long distances to simply sit in a salt mine for three months. As such, doctors and scientist have developed Halotherapy. As Greek was the language of medicine at the time, Halo is the word for salt. This holistic healing method reproduces the conditions found in a salt mine, but much more effectively, as only 45 minutes are needed to create the same effect as three hours in a natural salt mine.
