Salt Therapy Story 

 

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 health benefits mine workers attained working the mines.  They rarely suffered from respiratory ailments, lung disease, or colds.  He attributed this to inhalation of dry salt aerosol on a 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 heading to salt mines in hopes of benefitting from breathing the healing dry aerosol found deep under ground.

Modern Technology, through the use of special HALOGENERATORS, has brought the benefits of Salt Therapy to people without having to travel to salt caves in Europe & Asia.

The source of the salt is from 250 million years old huge deposits of the purest rock salt which have been formed from rippling waters of a shallow bay of the ancient Permian Sea.

Since natural salt caves and salt mines are not conveniently accessible for most people, the conditions of the salt caves were recreated by using Halotherapy (Halos in Greek means salt). Dry sodium chloride aerosol containing particles of 1-5µm. in size is produced by a special nebulizer and released into the Salt Room.

 

Around 20 million years ago Europe 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.

Salt aerosol is a well known decongestant. It reduces inflammation and has antimicrobial affects.

Salt is known to be:

  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Mucolytic (loosens mucus & phlegm)
  • Helpful in removing pathogen agents (airborne pollen)
  • Helpful in reducing IgE level (immune system oversensitivity)
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Anti-viral
  • Anti-fungal
  • Anti-microbial

The salt we use is unprocessed and uncontaminated by toxins or pollution. Our Salt Rooms uniquely reproduce from a physical, chemical and biological perspective the climate of Natural Salt Mines. Unlike others, the salt used to build the salt rooms is NOT decorative salt. We also control the temperature at 16-18C as is the case in Natural Salt Mines. Additionally, we control humidity at 50-70% by using cutting-edge technology (halogerator) which circulates very fine particles of pharmaceutical salt particles of 3-5 microns in order to reach every part of the respiratory system, particularly the very fine alveoli of the lung. There are no microbes or allergens in our Salt Rooms and this allows the body’s immune system to rest during treatment whilst the salt particles convert positive ions into negative ions, which is vital in strengthening the body’s immune system

Here at Kilkenny Salt Therapy, we harness the potent natural healing forces of salt to create a therapeutic environment like no other. 

The salt we use is unprocessed and uncontaminated by toxins or pollution. Our Salt Rooms uniquely reproduce from a physical, chemical and biological perspective the climate of Natural Salt Mines. Unlike others, the salt used to build the salt rooms is NOT decorative salt. We offer the best possible alternative experience to visiting Natural Salt Mines in Ireland. This has been achieved by shipping authentic salt to Kilkenny and using it to construct our Salt Rooms. Kilkenny Salt Therapy is the ONLY operator in Ireland who has created Salt Rooms clad with real salt shipped in from natural salt mines of 200 meters in depth.

The source of the salt is from 250 million years old huge deposits of the purest rock salt which have been formed from rippling waters of a shallow bay of the ancient Permian Sea.
