HIMALAYAN SALT CAVE
The modern Microclimate Aerosol Chamber uses state of the art technology to reproduce the atmosphere of the clinics located in salt caves or in special mines, and has a monitored therapeutic microclimate. The walls, floor and ceiling are covered with numerous layers of salt and halogenerators which ionize and saturate the air with a natural substance – low concentration of curative highly dispersed aerosol of Himalayan rock salt. The therapeutic parameters (such as concentration, dimensions, and speed of salt aerosol particles and other remedial factors) are customized by professionals according to the individual needs of the patients. These curative parameters are preset, and then controlled and maintained by a microprocessor.
The resulting environment has been proven in various clinical studies to alleviate respiratory and skin ailments ranging from asthma to allergies to eczema. A study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that long-term natural treatment in a salt room had a positive impact on lung function and reduced pulmonary exacerbation.
Eastern Europeans have been using naturally built salt caves and salt mines as therapy for hundreds of years. As far back as the mid 1200’s, Europeans have taken advantage of the various healing benefits that come from sitting in a salt mine or salt cave, such as inhaling (negative) ionized air and saline aerosols.
The calming and detoxifying effects of Halotherapy support the immune, nervous and lymphatic systems. Additional benefits are reduced stress and anxiety, reduced occurrence of headaches, increased energy level, and better sleep patterns. Salt ions purify the air, increase lung capacity and reduce physical ailments for adults, children and athletes. Treatments are also recommended to help keep the body healthy during flu or allergy seasons.
Skin conditions can also be improved with Halotherapy (psoriasis, skin rash, eczema, acne). Pure mineral salts have natural moisturizing properties and support the skin’s water balance and barrier function by attracting moisture to the skin. Minerals are necessary for cell function and detoxification, so mineral salts have strong rejuvenating properties.
The treatment room at Saltwonder is a visually beautiful place to experience Halotherapy, energy healing or massage. Approximately 2 tons of Himalayan salt were used to build the room: naturally crushed salt on the floor and raw Crystal Himalayan Salt blocks on the wall. The raw crystal shape of the Himalayan Salt blocks was preserved thoughtfully in order to offer a large surface for the generation of saline aerosols and negative ions release, consequently engaging the maximum therapeutic and energy potential. Exposure to negative air ions reduces stress and enhances overall performance. Negative ions increase blood and oxygen supplies to the brain, making Himalayan salt great at improving concentration. They also provide a boost of the neurotransmitter serotonin, which literally creates the feeling of happiness.
The Himalayan Salt blocks and crystals produce a soft light in hues of ambient orange, yellow and red that helps with stress, attention deficit disorder, and general relaxation, among others. The serene, soothing light is thought to balance physical, spiritual and emotional energies. People suffering from insomnia, seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and other forms of depression will find reach benefits from using the Himalayan Salt Room.
