Salt Therapy is 100% natural, drug-free and non-invasive. Although Salt Room Therapy is new to South Dakota, in many countries salt therapy is considered a conventional therapy.  Salt therapy is not a "new" therapy, it is just new to Aberdeen!

Salt Room History 
Dr. Felix Bochkowsky, the state authority for occupational health in Polish industry in the 1840s, saw the same thing was true with miners: while metal and coal miners battled relentless, deadly respiratory ailments, workers in salt mines were healthier than average people, let alone other miners.

In 1843, Dr. Bochkowsky published a book about the health benefits of salt dust. His successor, Mstislav Poljakowski, followed by establishing the first salt clinic near Krakow, Poland, which is still in operation today.

During World War II, salt mines in Germany were used as bomb shelters. During bombings, people often had to remain in the mines for extended periods of time, breathing in the salt dust. Upon leaving, many asthmatics were able to breathe much easier.

By the 1950s, scientific studies (primarily in the USSR) were proving how effective salt therapy is in treating respiratory ailments. Manmade, above-ground Saltrooms provided a controlled environment, and Halotherapy (from “halo”, Greek for salt) became a new option for respiratory treatment.

As Halotherapy grew more popular in the 1980s and 1990s, health and beauty resorts throughout Europe and Scandinavia began to install Saltrooms and offer Halotherapy as one of their restorative treatments.

How Does Halotherapy or Salt Therapy Work?
Micronized salt particles penetrate deeply into the tissues of the lungs to stimulate the lungs to kill, expel and extract things that should not be residents in your Respiratory System and Sinuses. The salt attaches to allergens bacteria, fungus, viruses, and environmental contaminants allowing your own body to rid itself of these unwelcome 'guests'.  All that is required of you is to unplug from your devices, find a comfortable seat or position, RELAX and BREATHE.  The salts that you breathe and the salts that you are surrounded with, will do what they have done for thousands of years.  SALT Serenity goes back to what has always been here to help us, SALT, and our mission is to create the environment for you to feel better in all the ways that are truly life-changing~ mind, body and spirit.
