What is Salt Therapy?
Salt therapy, also known as Halotherapy, is a drug free, non-invasive treatment that alleviates the health problems associated with asthma, sinusitis, allergies, Cystic Fibrosis and other respiratory illnesses.
In the 19th century Polish doctor, F. Botchkovsky, discovered that the environment inside salt mines had a therapeutic effect on respiratory diseases. Salt mines in eastern Europe were used as medical resorts for patients suffering from lung diseases.
