Here is something that most people do not know: The types of salt therapy can be broken down into many categories. In this post, we will focus on the different types of Dry Salt Therapy. According to the Salt Therapy Association, Dry Salt Therapy can be described as Speleotherapy or Halotherapy.
Speleotherapy is provided below the Earth’s surface using the climate conditions and salt air found in naturally occurring caves. Notably, this is not exclusive to salt mines and caves.
Alternatively, Halotherapy is a dry salt therapy that is provided in man-made rooms that have climate control and use a specific machine called a halogenerator. Halogenerators disperse dry salt microparticles into the salt room or chamber. Halotherapy is split up into Active and Passive Dry Salt Therapy.
Passive Dry Salt Therapy consists of man-made rooms or caves with large quantities of salt BUT they do NOT have a halogenerator. These rooms try to recreate the conditions of Speleotherapy. These rooms or caves usually have Pink Himalayan lining the walls and floors. This creates a lovely and peaceful aesthetic.
Active Dry Salt Therapy is a salt room or chamber that has a halogenerator and offers users a climate-controlled environment to breathe in pharmaceutical grade salt.
Here at The Salt Nest, we offer Active Dry Salt Therapy. Our sessions are antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and super absorbent. The pharmaceutical grade salt helps to remove toxins and impurities from your airways allowing you to breathe deeper. Active Dry Salt Therapy at The Salt Nest reduces stress, anxiety, and fatigue. Our rooms are designed with LED-lit Pink Himalayan Salt walls. These walls provide color and light therapy, as well as help, reduce allergens in the air.
