Salt Cave & Salt Therapy

The considerable increase of allergic diseases and reactions and of other serious complications due to the drug therapy explains the interest of clinicians to the development of drug-free methods of treatment. Halotherapy ("halos" in Greek means Salt) is one of such methods. Halotherapy is a mode of treatments in a controlled air medium which simulates a natural Salt cave microclimate.

The treatment in the natural Salt caves (Speleotherapy) has been known since long. The efficacy of Speleotherapy is associated with the unique cave microclimate. The natural dry sodium chloride aerosol is the major curative factor of the cave microclimate. It is formed by the convective diffusion from Salt walls. Other factors such as comfortable temperature and humidity regime, the hypo bacterial and allergen-free air environment saturated with aero ions enhance the therapeutic effect.

Speleotherapy has been recognized as a highly effective drug-free treatment method. Great experience in the treatment of patients with various forms of chronic nonspecific pulmonary diseases has proved Speleotherapy to be very effective under the conditions of the Salt mine microclimate of Solotvino.

Salt CAVE:

It is a room built mainly of solid Salt (about 16 tonnes of solid Salt) and other natural and ecological materials which create and keep the unique climate inside. This microclimate is very similar to the one by the Baltic Sea but much more intense as far as minerals are concerned. There are little waterfalls in every Salt cave where the solution of Salt from the Dead Sea is circulating again and again. This special Salt contains 70% of unique minerals that evaporate into the microclimate in the Salt cave. A medicine method based on inhalation, which is full of these minerals, is called halo therapy. This method is highly successful as far as various diseases and breathing disorders are concerned. This is because we breathe this healthy air directly, which is the most natural and effective way how to accept all the useful and important minerals.

Many medical researchers prove that the unique microclimate affects the human's organism positively. Patients who try to cure themselves of many diseases may find their health greatly improving after a few visits.

The diseases are as follows:

- Nervousness, depression, tiredness, weak immunity system
- Diseases of blood system, high blood pressure, heart diseases, after-heart-attack diseases
- All diseases of the breathing system, asthma, allergies, chronic pneumonia
- Diseases of nose, throat, larynx
- Skin disease such as eczema and dermatology diseases such as psoriasis
- Hypo function of thyroid gland
- Indigestion, stomach ulcers, duodenum ulcers

The Salt cave is something like an oasis of fresh air in the heavily polluted environment which we live in. Everybody, who is concerned about their health, visits the Salt cave regularly to relax there for a while and have a rest while listening to pleasant and calming music..

A microclimatic Salt cave is uniquely admired all over the world and is patented.

Structure and Characteristics of the Salt Cave

The floor, the walls, and the ceiling of the Salt cave are covered with food grade fine crystal Salt.Tons of large Salt rocks surround the visitors placed along the walls and also displayed in wooden crates. This Salt is dry and clean. To ensure the purest quality, we use Himalayan pink crystal Salt.

The size of the room is 450 sq. feet which allows 8+ persons to comfortably be seated during the
Halotherapy sessions. Children have a dedicated area to play in order not to disturb the others. The Salt cave itself is a completely separate space, isolated from the rest of our store areas.
