The history of Salt Therapy

Halotherapy or Speleotherapy, also known as, underground salt mine therapy, is considered a natural and complementary approach to treating asthma and other respiratory ailments. 


The origins of salt therapy

Its roots lie in Eastern and Central Europe and can be traced back to the mid 18th Century, when a Polish health official, Felix Botchkowski, noticed that the workers of salt mines never became ill with any lung diseases. In 1843, he wrote a book about his findings and it was not long after that the first Salt Spa in Velicko was opened.

Salt mines were often used as bombproof shelters during the Second World War, and asthma sufferers who spent a considerable amount of time in them felt that their health improved. 


Medical researchers in the former Soviet Union tested various alternatives to drug therapy, and have conducted extensive clinical trials on the effects of salt therapy for the treatment of asthma and chronic bronchitis.  Increasingly, evidence points to the benefits of salt therapy in the treatment of these diseases as a primary treatment method, or an accompaniment to other traditional therapies. 


The healing properties of salt are also known in allopathic medicine. The largest and oldest salt works in Europe is located in the royal salt mines of Wieliczka, Poland, approximately 7.5 miles outside of Krakow. Here, a hospital was carved out of the immense salt mountain, seven hundred and forty feet below the surface, specifically for asthmatics and patients with lung disease and allergies.  Several thousand patients have been successfully treated at this hospital with an impressive healing rate of over 90%.


For most people, traveling to the one of these salt mines in Europe for treatment on a regular basis is not realistic and also incredibly expensive. That’s why The SaltpipeTM inhaler was invented and allows you to access the same level of therapeutic benefits in the convenience of your home.


The secret’s in the salt

The SaltpipeTM (made in Hungary) is a modern hand-held device that contains the highest quality and the most effective salt there is.  Scientists tested 73 different types of salt from all over Europe and found most were too dry for use.  After months of refining the testing, the “halite crystal” from the Transylvania Praid salt mine was selected.

The halite crystals are by far the most potent and effective against asthma, chronic bronchitis, and other respiratory conditions.  They also promote good, clean and healthy lungs.


The process of selecting the salt crystals is quite complex to ensure that only the purest salt crystals are retained to yield immediate positive results for the user.

As you breathe in, the passing air absorbs the tiny salt particles (NaCI ions).  These particles help to clean your air passage ways and induce your respiratory system to flush away impurities.


The Saltpipe is patented in Hungary and is a certified class IIa medical device in Europe. 

Also carries ISO: 9001 quality control certificates.
