Salt Therapy is a powerful, natural treatment that replicates the healing power of a natural salt cave micro-climate. Also known as Halotherapy (from the Greek word halo for salt) salt therapy is used to treat respiratory and skin conditions. 

Salt therapy was an important part of the health practice of the ancient Greeks and has been utilised for centuries by advocates of it’s beneficial effects on health.

In Eastern Europe in the mid 20th century, doctors noticed that salt mine workers suffered very little in the way of respiratory diseases (asthma, bronchitis, coughs, colds, etc) in sharp contrast to the general population.

More studies were carried out and the conclusion was that the key was exposure to and the breathing in of salty air. In some regions, sanatoria were created to accommodate patients who could come and spend time within actual salt mines. This lead to the creation of the modern day salt therapy clinic – you don’t have to go into a mine anymore!

In our salt therapy rooms, the healing micro-climate of a natural salt cave is reproduced by our advanced salt therapy machines. This mixes a low, precise concentration of salt and air and circulates the salty air into a therapy room where you can relax and enjoy the health benefits in a non-invasive, comfortable manner.

Halotherapy is widely recognized as highly effective, non-invasive, natural, drug-free treatment and we are proud to offer you the best in salt therapy services in our clinic.

We know that salt is: Antibacterial  | Anti-inflammatory | Produces Mucolytic effects – it loosens excessive mucus and speeds up mucociliary transport | Removes pathogen agents (airborne pollen) | Reduces IgE level (immune system oversensitivity)

Customers sit relaxing in our treatment rooms, inhaling the dry, air enriched with tiny salt particles, deep down into the lungs, where they do their greatest healing.

The salt loosens the mucus, which begins to clear quickly, making more room in the airways for you to breathe. Salt kills bacteria, so reducing infection and inflammation. Symptoms subside, sometimes for up to 12 months.

While modern pharmaceuticals provide effective relief from chronic diseases, there are serious side effects associated with repeated or prolonged use. Continuous drug therapy is associated with the possible development of allergic or toxic reactions, development of antibiotic resistant microorganisms, spreading of dysbiosis and long-term immune system compromise. Our patients normally stop using their antibiotics, corticosteroid, inhalers, antihistamine and other drugs, not because we ask them to, but because they have become symptom-free.

Salt therapy relieves symptoms of following conditions: asthma | chronic bronchitis | breathlessness, chest tightness | pneumonia after acute stages | bronchiectasis disease| wheezing| smoker’s cough (including secondary smoke)| cough with viscous sputum discharging with difficulties | dry, paroxysmal cough with distant rates | mucus plugs| mucosal oedema | colds and influenza | frequent acute disorders of respiratory tract | rhinosinusopathy | pharyngitis | multi-chemical sensitivity syndrome | sinusitis/sinus inflammation | hayfever | croup | respiratory infections | coughs (particularly at night or after exercise) | respiratory allergies to industrial and household pollutants | adenoids, rhinitis, tonsillitis and more…

Our famous Salt & Wellness Clinic is based in Bexleyheath, Kent, just outside London. We offer one-hour salt therapy treatments for people and children suffering from respiratory and skin conditions. Salt therapy is beneficial for a range of conditions including asthma, COPD, sinusitis, hayfever, rhinitis, coughs, colds, influenza, bronchitis, respiratory infection, eczema, psoriasis, breathlessness, and more.

In our comfy salt therapy rooms, a specialised medical machine creates and circulates salty air throughout the room. Over time, salt has accumulated on the floor and walls,surrounding you just like in a natural salt mine. With relaxing music (or bring your own player!) this allows you to comfortably breathe in salty air and experience the therapeutic benefits. Salt therapy is a common, natural treatment in eastern and central Europe. Now you get to experience it right here in London!

Once in your lungs and airways the minute salt particles can help you in many beneficial ways. Salt kills bacteria and helps clear infection and inflammation. Salt absorbs moisture and excess mucus: clearing your airways and making breathing easier. Salt is a natural anti-histamine so it can assist you with hayfever, allergies and other environmental-reactive conditions.
