Steve Spiro, founder and managing partner at Global Halotherapy Solutions (GHS), wants to clarify the differences between halotherapy and Himalayan salt usage.

Halotherapy is the use of salt vapour to treat respiratory problems, skin complaints and stress, using a halogenerator – a machine that crushes large particles of pure pharmaceutical salt and disperses them as a dry salt aerosol. This allows the salt to be inhaled into the lungs, where it can deliver a number of different health benefits.

Himalayan salt treatments, on the other hand, may involve spending time in a room with salt-covered walls or salt crystals, but Spiro says without the halogenerator dispersing the crystals as an aerosol, the treatment is not as effective.

“Halogenerators produce halotherapy by crushing pure pharmaceutical salt into micro-particles that go deep into the lungs and on the skin,” explains Spiro. “That’s what halotherapy is – without a halogenerator it is just not halo therapy.”

When salt particles are inhaled into the lungs in aerosolized form, they have a number of health benefits for those suffering from asthma, chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis, hayfever and other airborne allergies. Salt inhalation can also ease symptoms for those suffering with acute/chronic respiratory diseases, viral infections and chronic ear-nose-and-throat illnesses.

Global Halotherapy Solutions’ Halo FX halogenerator is designed to deliver a powerful and reliable halotherapy experience. It features a sleek, lightweight design that makes it easy to install, and has a number of settings that can be adapted to suit the customer’s needs.

It has recently been certified by Underwriter Laboratories (UL), an American company that ensures safety standards in electronics across the US.

Amy McDonald, spa and wellness advisor at GHS, says: “The Halo FX can be put into massage rooms or lounge areas, but it can also be put into movement studios. This allows operators to utilise the space available to earn revenue, and offer classes in a room that has the added health benefits of halotherapy. The Halo FX is also available on GHS’ pre-built equipment including salt beds, booths and cabins. ”
