What happens in the salt room?
Within the salt room, a salt halogenerator
is used to churn salt chunks into dry
microscopic aerosol of salt particles
to be dispersed into the air. This method
is more concentrated, producing maximum
healing therapy. As the salt is inhaled,
it moves throughout the sinuses and respiratory
tract absorbing moisture, cleansing and
clearing mucus, and eliminating bacteria.
This is known as halotherapy (salt therapy).
What happens in the salt cave?
The water feature in the salt cave acts as
a natural halogenerator and ionizer.
As brine (salt water) is pumped at a
slow steady pace, it evaporates, producing
a saline vapor effect within the room.
The water cascade creates a higher concentration
of negative ions which is naturally found
around flowing water and the ocean. This
method (speleotherapy) is considered
a passive therapy. A 45-minute salt cave
session is like 4 days at the ocean.
