What people are saying about Halotherapy
History of Salt Therapy
The use of dry salt therapy, more clinically known as Halotherapy dates back over 3000 years. In fact, “Halo” means salt in Ancient Greek. The use of salt in treating illnesses and injuries has been documented in the ancient writings of Hippocrates and is also known to be used by Monks in Medieval Europe. When people were really sick and needed to be taken care of long-term, they often went to monasteries to do so. These monks would utilize the naturally-occurring salt caves in the region for therapeutic reasons. They noticed that patients with respiratory and skin issues would very often get better. It was so apparent to these monks that many of them started grinding up salt against rocks and having patients inhale the dust when they were unable to make it to a salt cave.
Salt therapy has continued to be used since it's early history. The first documented case of halotherapy treatment was in Poland in 1840 and the first official halotherapy spa was also opened in Poland in 1843 by the then head of the government health body Dr. Mstislav Poljakowski.
