Types of Halotherapy

Types of Halotherapy

Halotherapy can be defined as an alternative treatment that involves the inhalation of micro sized salt particles. Yet, it is evident that Halotherapy goes beyond inhalation and can be broken down into two categories; dry halotherapy and wet halotherapy.

Dry Halotherapy

Dry Halotherapy is a form of treatment that occurs in a man-made “Salt Cave” that has the similar properities of a real Salt Cave. In order to mimick the characteristics of a real Salt Cave, Halotherapy centres contain both an separate air filtration system, a process to control/maintain elevated levels of humidity, and a Halogenerator to grind down pharma grade salt and disperses it throughout the air.

Through the process of Dry Halotherapy, the micro-sized salt particles are being inhaled to the deepest part of your lungs to break down mucus build up,
reduce inflammation, cleansing the airways and disinfecting bacteria in the sinuses and the lungs.

This method combined with Speleotherapy; the exposure to negative ions, the isolation from external stimulis and disruptive wavelengths and frequences
allows Dry Halotherapy to be a drug-free, non-invasive, 100% natural treatment effective in treating a wide range of respiratory illnesses.

Wet Halotherapy

Wet Halotherapy is a form of salt therapy that occurs through the skin exposure and the consumption of salt.

Some methods includes;

  • Drinking salt water using Sole Brine Solutions
  • Bathing in Salt Water
  • Floatation tanks that contain Salt Water
  • Heated Salt Blocks exposed to the skin


Through the process of Wet Halotherapy, salt; a natural saline solution which carries over 84 essential minerals, is able to enter into
your body and/or through your pores to detoxify your body. It is also important to note that; salt is a detoxifer as it pulls water and toxins from the body
