Halotherapy - the word derives from the Greek halos, which is to say, 'salt'. Thus 'halotherapy' means therapy which makes use of salt. Numerous forms of halotherapy have been known of and used from millennia. We find the first mentions of spa resorts in Poland in records dating from the twelfth century. They relate to bathing in mineral waters.[1]

Forms of halotherapy[edit]

We distinguish several forms of halotherapy:

  • Saline Solution Inhalations
  • Dry Salt Aerosol Inhalations
  • Irrigation and Lavage
  • Saline and Brine Baths
  • Taking the Waters (Crenotherapy)
