Salt Spa Therapy is based on the principle of prolonged exposure to the micro-climate found in natural salt mines or salt caves. Salt Rooms in ARIA MediSpa uses state of the art technology to reproduce the atmosphere of a salt cave with a monitored therapeutic micro-climate. Air in our Salt Rooms is ionized and saturated with a natural substance – a low concentration of curative highly dispersed aerosol of dry saline (salt).
The micro-climate in our Salt Rooms is formed naturally, through convective diffusion from the salt walls combined with controlled temperature and humidity. This creates a hypo-bacterial and allergen-free air environment. Inhalation of salt aerosol is clinically proven to cleanse the respiratory system of the human body and to speed up elimination of toxins. A salt aerosol rich in negative ions is proven to have bactericidal effects, cleansing microbial flora of the respiratory tract, slowing down bacterial growth and increasing resistance to respiratory tract diseases. This effect is used to treat asthma, bronchitis, pneumonia, sinusitis, as well as frequent respiratory tract diseases in children and adults. Airborne salt particles have a beneficial effect on skin and are known for their high cosmetic value due to the high mineral content. Salt aerosol is a well known decongestant. It reduces inflammation and has antimicrobial affects.

Where does this salt rock come from?
Around 20 million years ago Europe and Middle East was partially covered by a shallow sea. The sea disappeared over time but left large amounts of salt behind. This salt is bedded between 10 and 300 meters below the surface. Modern Salt Rooms allow patients to sit in a room built from these salt blocks and gain the same benefit as they would breathing the air in a salt cave.
What is Salt Therapy?
Salt Therapy (Speleotherapy or Halotherapy) is a completely natural, non-invasive and drug free treatment where dry salt aerosol is passively inhaled in a specially constructed Salt Room or Speleochamber.
This therapy involves breathing in microscopic salt particles which has a positive effect on respiratory and skin aliments. The dry sodium chloride aerosol in the Salt Room eliminates airborne particles from the airways and helps the body purge itself of toxins. Salt Therapy is a safe complimentary therapy and has no side effects. There are no microbes or allergens in the Salt Room. This allows the body’s immune system to rest during treatment. The salt particles convert positive ions into negative ions, vital in strengthening the body’s immune system.Salt Therapy is based on the principle of prolonged exposure to the micro-climate found in natural salt mines or salt caves.
Who can benefit from Salt Therapy treatment?
Salt Therapy can benefit people of any age with respiratory and skin ailments, as well as those in good health who want to strengthen their immunity and enjoy a relaxing treatment with proven positive effects on well-being.

Salt therapy is extremely beneficial for people with restricted mobility, e.g. people in the wheelchairs, because lack of movement and physical activity often leads to accumulation of mucus in the lungs. We have wheelchair-friendly access to the facilities and both the impaired person and their carer can enjoy a therapeutic, relaxing session. Salt has dehumidifying properties (you will no doubt notice slight tingling and dryness in the throat during the session) and naturally assists your body in removing accumulated excess fluid in the airways.
How long is a session?
Adults: 45 minutes per session Children: 20-45 minutes per session Infants: 15-20 minutes per session. There is a 15 minute gap between each session in order to filter and purify the room.
What does it feel like?
Salt Therapy is a relaxing, peaceful and rejuvenating experience. While sitting in the room you are surrounded by the fine salt particles and negative ions created in the air. Sometimes people detect a subtle and pleasant salt taste on their lips.
