Halo is the Greek word for salt. It's similar to the effects one experiences from a long,blissful day at the beach. Once inhaled, the salt particles absorb irritants, including allergens and toxins, from the respiratory system. Then breaks up mucus and reduces inflammation, resulting in clear airways. Salt room therapy (dry salt inhalation) is 100% natural, safe and drug-free.

How does it work?
Our salt room halogenerator crushes 100% pure dry salt into micro-ionized particles that are dispersed through the air in the salt room. Salt molecules are comprised of a positive sodium ion and a negative chloride ion. While you breathe in the salty air of the therapy room, salt molecules enter the moist airways of the lungs and break down, releasing the negative ions.
