History of Salt Therapy Salt has been used for healing purposes all over the world since ancient times. Specifically, Salt Therapy originated about 150 years ago in Eastern Europe with Dr. Bochkovsky’s discovery of the health benefits mine workers attained working in the mines. They rarely suffered from respiratory ailments, lung disease, or colds. He attributed this to the inhalation of dry salt aerosol on daily basis. With no airborne pollutants or humidity, and a stable temperature, Salt mines proved beneficial for healthy lungs & skins. People with asthma, allergies, emphysema, and other respiratory & skin problems began salt mines in hopes of benefiting from breathing the healing dry aerosol found deep underground. Modern technology, through the use of special Halo generators, has brought the benefits of Salt Therapy to people without going to salt caves in Europe & Asia.
