Dry salt therapy uses 99.99% pure pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride, NaCl, which has these beneficial properties:


  • super absorbent (especially when it is completely dry)

  • anti-bacterial

  • anti-inflammatory

This type of dry salt is placed into our halogenerator, that precisely grinds the salt into specific micro-sized particles, and then disperses the salt aerosol into the air.​  

The dry salt particles are inhaled into your respiratory system and naturally start absorbing allergens, toxins, and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract, providing a variety of respiratory benefits.  

The dry salt particles not inhaled absorb impurities and provide anti-bacterial properties that benefit your skin.

According to the Salt Therapy Association, for general respiratory hygiene, once or twice a week visiting your local salt therapy facility will enhance the lung capacity, boost immune system, reduce stress and aid better sleep.
