About Halotherapy

Halotherapy was originally “discovered” in the 1800s in Eastern Europe when doctors realized that salt miners didn’t suffer nearly as often from respiratory and skin conditions as others in the communities. These doctors then began to “prescribe” visits to the salt mines and at some point, the miners even carved out separate areas for this original halotherapy.

Later entrepreneurs built machines to replicate this environment and modern halotherapy was born.
