Dry salt therapy, or halotherapy, is a relatively new concept, but only to the United States. Salt therapy evolved from the salt mines and underground health resorts throughout Europe and Russia where it was called Speleotherapy, a respiratory therapy which involves the breathing of salt infused air in a micro- climate of a salt mine. It was officially recognized as a therapy by a Polish physician, Dr. Feliks Boczkowski in 1843.
Dr. Boczkowski noticed that salt mine workers rarely suffered from respiratory issues. Miners would chisel, hammer and grind the salt which in turn would produce micro-sized salt particles that saturated the air and were then inhaled. With salt being naturally antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial, it created the perfect environment for ideal respiratory health.
