Halotherapy Standards

Controlled Halotherapy

Controlled Halotherapy is possible only with the use of halogenerators outfitted with sensors that continuously measure the level of DSA in salt-room air, which prompt the halogenerator to increase or decrease DSA production to maintain preset levels.   

The main acting factor is micronized DRY SODIUM CHLORIDE (salt), mixed with air, to create Dry Salt Aerosol (DSA). For this to be effective, it requires the following conditions:

  • Concentration – 1 – 20 mg/m3
  • Particle size – 1 - 5 mkm (at least 80% of particles)
  • Chemical composition of salt: 
    • NaCl: 97.7 - 100%
    • Ca-ion: less than 0.5 %
    • Mg-ion: less than 0.1 %
    • SO4: less than 1.2 %
    • K-ion: less than 0.1 %
    • Fe2O3: less than 0.01%
    • Na2SO4: less than 0.5 %
    • Moisture: less than 0.25%

To achieve best results, the following courses of Halotherapy treatments are recommended

  • To support respiratory health, 10 - 20 daily sessions
  • To support skin health, 8 – 15 daily sessions
  • To clean lungs, strengthen the respiratory system’s local immunity to fight common allergies, such as pollen and pet dander, and support general well-being, 2 sessions a week for 3 to 4 consecutive weeks 

The suggested duration for each session is 30 minutes for children and 40-60 minutes for adults.

Length of halotherapy sessions, frequency and dry salt aerosol concentrations levels may vary depending on customers' goals.  

To maintain results achieved with the initial round of Halotherapy, adults should repeat the initial course up to 4 times a year, children should repeat the initial course up to 3 times a year.
