Most people probably don’t give much thought to the air they breathe. But the truth is, the quality of the air you breathe has a direct impact on your overall health. One of the best ways to improve the quality of the air you breathe is through halotherapy (salt therapy).
Halotherapy is a natural, drug-free therapy that uses dry salt and a halogenerator to improve respiratory health.
Halotherapy can be used to treat a wide range of respiratory conditions, including allergies, asthma, bronchitis, COPD, and sinusitis.
And the good news? Adding a halogenerator to your business is simple, and requires very little extra work. Salt therapy can be easily added to services you already provide such as yoga, massage, reiki, meditation, and breathwork, as well as used as a stand-alone service.
But how does halotherapy work? And what are some of the other benefits of using a halogenerator with salt therapy? Let’s take a closer look.
How Does Halotherapy Work?
Halotherapy evolved from speleotherapy, which is a climate-based therapy where certain conditions specific to caves and salt mines were found to have a positive effect on respiratory wellness by inhaling dry salt to help clear out mucus and toxins from the lungs, making it easier to breathe.
To get the same benefits for your clients, all you need is a halogenerator and pure-grade sodium chloride (salt). A halogenerator, which was developed in 1976 to replicate the conditions of a natural salt cave, grinds up the salt into tiny particles and disperses them into the air. You then breathe in these microscopic salt particles, which help clear out your lungs and improve your respiratory health.
Because your facility is above ground and does not have the same climate, humidity, and wind tunnels of a natural salt mine, you cannot offer halotherapy (dry salt therapy) without a halogenerator, regardless of how much Himalayan salt you may have purchased from Poland or Pakistan to add to the walls of your salt room. Himalayan salt has no respiratory benefits, and should only be used and promoted as a decor element.
Other Benefits of Halotherapy
In addition to improving respiratory health, halotherapy also offers a number of other benefits. For example, halotherapy can help reduce stress and anxiety, improve sleep quality, and boost your immune system.
Halotherapy is also an effective treatment for skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
The salt helps to remove dead skin cells and bacteria from the surface of the skin, reducing inflammation and promoting healing.
Finally, halotherapy can also help improve focus and concentration. The salty air helps to increase blood flow to the brain, which in turn increases oxygenation and improves cognitive function.
How Halogenerators Work
Halogenerators work by grinding up dry salt into micron-sized particles and then dispersing those particles into the air. The particles are small enough to be breathed deep into the respiratory where they come into contact with the mucous membranes and bacteria and help to break up congestion and clear out the sinuses.

Our SALT Chamber SALT FX® halogenerators all work in the same way. Pure-grade sodium chloride crystals are poured into the grinder, then crushed into micron-sized particles. Those particles are then dispersed by a fan into the salt chamber room.
Installment is straightforward. Our SALT FX® halogenerators plug into basic outlets and are placed on the outside wall with a tube coming into your salt room. We are happy to consult with you about proper placement and to help determine if there are any electrical or HVAC needs.

- Halotherapy is a safe and gentle way to improve your overall health and well-being.
How to Find the Best Halogenerator for Your Needs
Our halogenerators are set apart from the competition by the following 5 standards.
–Efficacy of the Halotherapy: the particle size and concentration levels.
Our halogenerators provide salt particles that are 1 micron to a sub-micron level of 0.3 microns. For comparison, human hair is 50-70 microns. The smaller the micron, the more effective the absorption is in the lungs and the skin.
–Quality, Testing, and Reliability.
SALT FX ® halogenerators are the only halogenerators that are manufactured in a certified medical device facility. This means that our machines are made with the highest manufacturing standards.
They are also UL Listed and CE Certified.
