Speleotherapy Vs Halotherapy
In 1843 a Polish physician at the Wieliczka salt mine, Dr Feliks Boczkowski , noticed that the miners did not suffer from lung disorders that were common at that time. From this observation Speleotherapy (Speleo = Greek for Cave) was born.
Speleotherapy uses the unique microclimate conditions of salt caves and salt mines to alleviate the symptoms of several diseases, especially respiratory and skin conditions. The air in a salt cave has virtually no dust which reduces the likely-hood of any kind of respiratory irritation. Speleotherapy has been shown to reduce and in some cases completely eliminate the symptoms of the diseases after a course of therapy. But more importantly, salt therapy has been shown to have a longer lasting effect.
Halotherapy uses modern technology to reproduce the therapeutic conditions found in natural salt caves in the comfort of a modern, spa like room. Patients are able to sit in comfortable chairs and listen to soothing sounds as they breath in the super fine particles of salt, which cleanse the lungs of bacteria, irritants and pollution, reduce inflammation of the respiratory tract and also improve mucociliary clearance.
Modern Salt Therapy
Researchers and scientists over the past 20 or so years have developed a unique method to reproduce the microclimate of salt caves to enable the therapy to be performed in specially prepared salt therapy rooms. The principle component in recreating the natural microclimate of the salt mines is the Breeze Tronic Pro medical device.
The active ingredient used in our artificial Salt Cave is ionized salt gained from natural sources. This ionized salt does not evaporate during the treatment thus the air remains dry. The salt particles are extremely fine in this microclimate, ensuring that they reach even the smallest bronchia and alveolar in the lungs and do not irritate the respiratory tract.
This medication free therapy method was invented in 1982 in Russia. Since then thousands of patients have been successfully treated in Russia, Germany, Austria, Poland, Hungary, Canada. Our partners, The Salt Cave (UK) first introduced this unique but clinically tested treatment method in the UK. In the first 1 year of operation, The Salt Cave treated over 7000 patients in SW London, (Earlsfield) suffering from various symptoms, such as congested, blocked and inflamed airways, cough, breathing discomfort, asthma attacks, etc. They have reduced or even stopped their antihistamine, corticosteroid, antibiotics and other drug usage.
