How many treatments will I need?
Every experience is different, and it depends on the type and severity of your condition. Based on the research, we would recommend a course of 10-12 treatments, preferably within 4-8 weeks. You may feel some improvement after a single session, but a series of treatments is required to achieve long-term results. For mild conditions, 6-8 treatments may be enough. Each session should be repeated every other day for several days, depending on the patient’s needs and the condition. It is recommended to repeat the series of treatment 2-3 times in a year. Some people use treatments as a preventative measure to avoid the common cold and other respiratory viruses.

What to expect after the treatment?
Salt Therapy may produce a slight skin irritation in some individuals that will disappear after a few sessions. Some people will experience a mild salt taste on their lips, similar to being by the ocean. Others may experience a mild throat tickle, which can be easily treated by sipping warm water after the session. Most people will experience increased mucous production. This will present itself in the form of a runny nose or a productive cough after the session. This is the body’s natural mechanism for elimination of toxins, pollens, and viruses. If you have ever smoked in the past, you may experience a period of cough and mucous production as your body naturally clears the lungs of residual toxins. Most asthmatics will also experience an initial period of increased mucous production and cough as the body decreases inflammation, opens airways, and expels the stagnant mucous.
When should the treatment be avoided?
Treatment should be avoided during the acute (active) phase of any illness, including the following: infections accompanied by fever, acute tuberculosis, acute inflammatory diseases, contagious conditions, cardiac insufficiency and severe heart disorders, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) in the third stage, bleeding, spitting of blood, alcohol or drug intoxication, unstable or uncontrolled hypertension, and acute stages of respiratory diseases.
*** To ensure your safety and the safety of our clients, we may refuse your treatment if there shall be an evidence of any active phase and/or contiguous disease!!!
Side Effects and Counter Indications
Halotherapy has few and rare side effects. Certain patients may experience a dry throat and increased coughing in the beginning. This is an absolutely natural part of the cleaning process of the respiratory system, during which the pollutants accumulated through a long time and now ripped up by salt, are expelled from even the deepest regions of the lungs. The side effects cease with the removal of pollution and pathogens. Skin irritation and increased dermal sensitivity may also occur. In such a case, decrease the frequency of therapy sessions.
