Salt therapy or speleotherapy, is a popular alternative treatment used to treat skin disorders, such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis and it can also relive a range of respiratory problems, including emphysema, asthma and bronchitis.
It is a treatment derived from the salt mines and caves and dates back to the 1800s.
Bringing this unique treatment to Brisbane is Salt Escape, which opened in July 2012. This mother and daughter business utilises a patented, state-of-the-art medical device called a Halo Generator, which replicates the microclimate of a natural salt mine/cave.
The humidity in the treatment room is between 40-70% and it is a safe 100% drug free treatment with no artificial elements; it is even suitable for children from the age of 6 months onwards.
Those who use the treatment will see their symptoms normalise with regular sessions.
