Halotherapy, also called dry salt therapy, is a natural therapy for adults and children used to detoxify the system. The use of salt in medical science has been documented among ancient Egyptian, Roman and Greeks texts. It was described in the writings of Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, in 460 BC and has been used as a medically approved treatment regimen in Eastern Europe since the mid 1900s. Dry salt therapy is a drug free inhalation therapy that works by infusing microparticles of of 99% pure sodium chloride through a halogenerator which is inhaled to promote better breathing, healthier skin, sound sleep, and overall wellness.
Himalayan crystal salt contains the same 84 natural elements found in the human body and is referred to in the Himalayas as "white gold." The Salt Room @ Country Village is lined with bricks of this material to enhance the effects of the salt therapy. During a Halotherapy treatment, patients sit in comfortable chairs, relax and listen to ambient music while they inhale aerosolized micro particles in controlled and low concentration created by a specialized medical technology and mixed with air. This process delivers the particles into the respiratory system to reduce inflamation, widen the airways, eliminate toxins and allergens and strengthen the immune system. Micro particles landing on the skin help balance pH and promote reparative and regenerative processes in the skin. Halotherapy has no known drug interactions. The effects of the process are cumulative and while many clients feel a difference after just one treatment, multiple treatments work to greater effect.
