What is Salt Therapy/ Halotherapy?

Salt Room Lotus Blossom Yoga Lawton OK

Since Salt Therapy is not a regulated term there is a lot of misunderstanding about it. The name Salt Therapy could be used for anything related to salt as health support, like gargling with salt water, drinking sole, salt bath...

Halotherapy or Dry Salt Therapy is a more accurate name for a therapy that means breathing a negative ion rich dry salt micro-climate, just like in natural salt mines. It is a natural, safe, non-invasive, alternative therapy which is also very relaxing.

 

Since the early 1800's, European people with respiratory complaints find great relief in salt mines. In the 1980's, it was a desire for some European Physicians to study the micro-climate of natural salt mines. They were hoping to re-create the air above ground . So these doctors and scientists began analyzing the air of different natural salt mines.

In all mines they found a therapeutic saturation of DRY SALT PARTICLES (1-5 microns in size) which can even reach the lower respiratory system and an abundance of negative ions. Based on their findings, they re-created this negative ion rich salt micro-climate as close as possible by building a devise, called Halogenerator (Salt mill).

It is able to produce breathable dry salt particles. The therapy then was called Halotherapy. It is the only evidence based, scientifically and professionally developed method of salt therapy, based on studies of natural salt mines.

In Europe, Halotherapy is used in the medical field as well as in the spa industry. Halotherapy Spas are becoming favored around the world.

In Lawton, OK, you can find this salt therapy method only here in

our Salt Room at Lotus Blossom Yoga & Wellness.

SALT: Since salt is anti-inflammatory, it helps reduce inflammation of the respiratory system and enhances ones immune system. It also supports the respiratory system by liquefying mucus/phlegm for better discharge. Dry salt particles act as "bronchial brush" with strong purifying effects and it destroys harmful microorganisms.

 

​NEGATIVE IONS: NI have been studied for their health benefits for a long time. Negative ions have a balancing effect on our autonomic nervous system, causing us to relax and become calm. Furthermore, negative ions also increase flow of oxygen in the blood, purify blood, strengthen our immune system, support better digestions as well as cell rejuvenation.

 

With each breath, you will inhale natural dry negatively ionized salt and precious minerals while experiencing the comfort and relaxation of our unique Himalayan Salt Therapy Cave Room.

FREQUENCY: As with all treatments, Halotherapy has best results when attending multiple sessions. You may feel improvement after one session, however a series of 5-25 treatments in a short period of time are suggested for best results.

Benefits of Halotherapy & Who it is not for

FAQ's

Why did you choose Halotherapy (dry salt therapy)?

Our personal choice for this method of salt therapy​​​ was born out of the desire to offer the most therapeutic salt therapy available combined with solid, scientific background. 

How many sessions do I need?

Many people feel health benefits after only one session.
However, long lasting results occur after a series of 10-20 treatments with at least 3-5 sessions/week 1-2 times/year. For relaxation purposes and to strengthen the immune system 1-2 sessions a week year round are recommended, however sessions can be taken as many times as desired.

 

Can I read in the salt cave?
Yes, but it is very low light and truly a better experience to just relax and breathe in the air.

 

Does Halotherapy have side effects?
Some clients feel a tickling in the throat. Owing to the Halotherapy induced drainage of accumulated mucus, some clients experience an increase in coughing after several days of treatment, mostly more productive in mucous discharge.

Rare side effects are light eye irritation to conjunctivitis. If you have sensitive eyes it is suggested to keep your eyes closed during Halotherapy or the use of an eye pillow.

Are there different salt therapy methods?
Yes. However, only one method can re-create the authentic micro-climate of natural salt mines. It is called Halotherapy or dry salt therapy. When the air in natural salt mines was studied, scientists found in ALL mines a concentration of 15 - 23 mg/m3 dry salt particles in the air (1-5 microns in size) as well as an abundance of negative ions. Dry micron-sized salt can only be generated by a Halogenerator (a salt mill). In the process of being ground up into 1-5 microns, the salt becomes negatively ionized. When salt therapy without Halogenerator is offered, for example with water features, therapeutic dry salt can not be found in the air. The Salt Room of Lotus Blossom is the only Halotherapy Room  in Lawton.

​​​​When is salt treatment not recommended?
Halotherapy is not recommended for persons afflicted with following illnesses:
Any kind of infectious disease; Infections, accompanied by fever;
Patients who have cardiac insufficiency; Chronic kidney diseases; Any form and stages of tuberculosis;

Consult your health care professional prior to scheduling salt therapy.

 

What is special about Himalayan Salt versus other salt?
Himalayan Salt is hand mined in the deepest and most pristine salt ranges in Pakistan and contains many minerals that our body needs. It originates from the primal oceans and is thought to be over 300 Million years old. It is not refined nor cleaned and treated chemically like your average table salt and is not exposed to harmful pollution and toxins like sea salt which is harvested from the ocean waters. Other salt mined in different parts of the world often are not suitable to eat and are mined with heavy machinery which pollutes the salt. This salt is called rock salt and is inferior in quality compared to Himalayan Salt.  

What do I wear in the Himalayan Salt Cave?

Wear comfortable clothes and bring clean white socks.

 

Is salt therapy safe for children?
YES! Children often respond faster to treatments than adults and there is no potential harmful effect. However,  all children must be accompanied by an adult.
