Your Health is Your Wealth
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 mines even carved out separate areas for this original halotherapy.
Later entrepreneurs built machines to replicate this environment and modern halotherapy was born. Halotherapy Solutions’ equipment was designed in Estonia, one of the original locations for this early halotherapy.
Due to this history much of the research on halotherapy has taken place in Eastern Europe but is now starting to get more attention in other areas of the world such as the United States and Australia. Below is a cross-section of research in each area of halotherapy’s key benefits to get a start on the subject.
If you would like access to research on halotherapy it is recommended that you visit the following resources:
