Cities are abundant with various technologies but the health factors are lacking in a big way. Salt therapy strives to supplement the salt content that is an essential component in the metabolisms of the body.

- SALT ROOM THERAPY IS JUST A SPA:
The pleasant environment is sure to make you think of it as a spa but deep inside, the body is miraculously healing and relaxing. That’s the beauty of Salt Therapy.

Household salt isn’t the purest form of salt. Salt Therapy uses Himalayan Pink salt which is about 94% pure and also contains traces of gypsum and 99% pure NaCl which is inhaled. The salt used is of the highest quality.
- SALT IS THE ONLY HEALER:
Apart from the remarkable contribution of salt in healing, ions also prove to be effective healers. Ions are charged particles that form as a result of the splitting of the neutral particles. Salt particles released in the air are negative ions and effectively extract dust and bacteria from the body.

Salt walls though are pleasing to look at, they have no health advantage. Salt walls can never release salt particles into the air we breathe; it can only be done with a Halogenerator which is used for Salt Therapy.
- HALOGENERATORS ARE UNCONTROLLABLE:
Excessive intake of salt is not encouraged in the salt room therapy. Halogenerators are generally accompanied with sensors such that the salt content is maintained in the room.

- SALT THERAPY IS A CURE ONLY FOR RESPIRATORY ISSUES:
Salt is sure to enter only the lungs in the process but many other ailments also find their relief with salt therapy, skin and joint related illnesses can be taken care or through Salt Therapy.
