Medical and Scientific Research of Halotherapy - Salt Therapy

 Much research has been done on the subject of Halotherapy. Prof. Alina Chervinskaya, M.D., Ph.D., Head of Clinical-Research Respiratory Center, Scientific and Clinical Center of Preventive and Rehabilitation Pulmonology of Sokolov (St. Petersburg, Russia) is the founder of Halotherapy. She has published over 200 studies, documenting the benefits and research of Halotherapy (dry salt therapy) for more than 25 years. We have compiled a selection of available publications. Many more are available, including from other Health Professionals.

The Salt Spa of Asheville has chosen to provide this most effective, safe and researched method of salt therapy.

Halotherapy (dry salt therapy) has been developed by scientists and doctors.

Important knowledge about equipment

Many people don't know how man made salt caves should be equipped to serve therapeutic purposes

but it is important to know that salt caves differ in quality. ​​

Not all Salt Spas/Salt Caves use a dry salt Halogenerator but refer to as Halotherapy.

Salt Caves without dry salt Halogenerators cannot create the therapeutic micro-climate of natural salt mines

and have not been scientifically/clinically studied or researched.

Some salt spas disperse humid salt mist via water features into a salt covered room and others only

cover their walls, floor and ceiling with salt.

Although those methods create a space for relaxation, it has been found that the therapeutic benefits of

Halotherapy is significantly higher.

​​One Salt Cave builder who uses water features measured the salt content directly by the water feature

and found just 0.2 mg/m3 of salt moisture. Natural salt mines have 15 - 24 mg/m3 of dry salt in the air.

According to the studies of Physicians, the air has to be saturated with at least .5 - 15 mg/m3 of dry salt to achieve therapeutic benefits. Only a dry salt Halogenerator will provide this therapeutic amount.

To learn more about the fascinating method of Halotherapy , we invite you to browse our Research selection

to get more information on the subject.

The Salt Spa of Asheville and Himalayan Salt Cave is the first Halotherapy Center in North Carolina.
