Salt Therapy or Halotherapy is a widely used natural remedy that goes back several centuries. The healing atmosphere of salt caves was acknowledged as far back as medieval times, with monks taking the sick down into salt caves to allow them to breathe air saturated with salt particles.
In 1843, Polish doctor Felix Boczkowski, a physician at the Wieliczka salt mine, observed a remarkably low incidence of respiratory conditions in salt miners. In modern times, salt therapy has become widely popular in many European countries and all over the world because of its proven benefits.
How Does it Work?The Salt Room at Bluefern Spa utilizes patented state-of-the-art technology to reproduce the atmosphere of a salt cave with a monitored therapeutic microclimate. The air in our salt room is ionized and infused with a low concentration dry salt aerosol. To build the salt room, pure rock salt and Himalayan salt bricks were used.
The SALT FX Halogenerator uses pharmaceutical grade salt grinded into micro-particles and disperses them into the Salt Room. During a typical 45 min. session, you can relax in our zero-gravity chairs, take a nap, read a book, while enjoying the soft music and stress-free atmosphere.
More than 40 years of research, conducted around the world, shows that treatment with Halotherapy has beneficial effects for:

- Cystic Fibrosis
- Allergies or Hay Fever
- Ear Infections
- Chronic Respiratory & ENT diseases

And negative ions can dramatically increase your:
- Mental alertness
- Overall sense of well-being
Why it works for LungsThe inhaled particles of salt have bactericide, mucokinetic and anti-inflammatory properties, resulting in reduced inflammation in the entire respiratory tract, a widening of the airways passages, accelerated eliminated of mucus, residual tar and foreign allergens, and an improved immune system. Dry salt is super absorbent and acts like a sponge attracting foreign substances along its path through the respiratory tract.
Why it works for SkinThe micro-particles of salt have a beneficial influence to the skin’s protective layer providing haling and cosmetic effects. The salt normalizes Ph and induces healing and regenerative processes in the skin.

The effectiveness of Salt Therapy is highly recommended for all pediatric respiratory and skin conditions. Studies have shown that 85% of children became symptom-free after only 3 therapy sessions.
