How halotherapy works

Airway Clearance

Halotherapy safely and effectively promotes clearance the airways. It works as a "gentle brush" to clean the airways and lungs of mucus, allergens, pollutants and other impurities.

When finely ground salt particles get into the airways, they gently stimulate cilia movement, which improves the expectoration of mucus, bacteria and any other irritants.

Sodium chloride delivered via Halotherapy also changes the consistency of mucus, making it thinner, less sticky and more slippery, and greatly eases expectoration. Combined with its potential to stimulate cilia movement, sodium chloride is an important contributor to airway clearance.  

Inhibiting the bacteria

Dry Salt Aerosol inhibits the growth of bacteria, which can cause respiratory tract infections.

Photos above illustrate efficiency of this mechanism on the cellular level: the left photo shows respiratory epithelial cells colonized by S. pneumonia, a major cause of pneumonia; the right photo was taken after a 12-day course of 45-minute halotherapy sessions, showing the respiratory epithelial cells free of S. pneumoniae.  

Improving local immunity

Dry salt aerosol strengthens local immunity of the respiratory tract and reduces its sensitization to common allergens.  

Improving skin conditions

Dry salt aerosol benefits for skin:

  • Fortifies skin’s protective barrier 
  • Stimulates microcirculation
  • Reduces inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-edematous effects
  • Helps normalize skin’s pH-balance
  • Promotes healthy tissue regeneration
  • Promotes elasticity
  • Facilitates deeper penetration of skin care products 
  • Clears impacted follicles to prevent acne formation
  • Promotes gentle exfoliation
