Wellness experts are putting the ‘Halo’ in Halotherapy. Here’s why.


Halo-therapy or Salt therapy is more than just a new fad in the world of wellness.

Although the health benefits of salts play a crucial part in determining physical health, they also have a key significance in emotional wellness. We wouldn’t want to bore you with the technicalities of why salts are biologically important, but the reality of the matter is- they play a far more superior role in the world of holistic well-being and reconnection. And no, this doesn’t just apply to your senseis’ and “insta-gurus”, we’re talking about everyone in need of an emotional reconnection with their environment. Which during the pandemic, by the majority, is most of us.

As the name suggests, Salt therapy or ‘Halo therapy’ is a form of wellness which includes the usage of crystalline, granulated salts for its dermatological & respiratory benefits. The origins of this therapeutic treatment stems from Poland, after a polish doctor, Dr. Feliks Boczkowski, took notice of salt miners who appeared to have no respiratory issues or ailments after long strenuous hours of work.

What turned out to be an observational instinct, has now turned into the new ‘go-to’ for many wellness enthusiasts and experts. Designed to alleviate, cleanse and rejuvenate the body, these caves have been known for promoting respiratory wellness in Asthmatic patients across the globe. Infused with Himalayan salts from the foothills of the epic mountain ranges in Pakistan, these caves and salts provide a solitary haven for reflection and mental awareness.


But the benefits don’t just stop there.

The composition of these salts consist of ions that further balances the pH of your skin. Thanks to the naturally occurring trace minerals in Himalayan Pink Salt, it helps elevate the skin’s natural composition. Although the skin already has its own organic mechanisms to balance out our pH levels, factors such as stress, extended sun exposure, or over-washing with soaps can throw your pH level out of balance. Healthy, glowing skin is only possible when everything is in equilibrium!

These Himalayan salts also help in targeting Acne flares and scars.

The trace minerals found in Himalayan Pink Salt gives it natural antiseptic properties. This means that by scrubbing your skin regularly with the salt, any impurities and bacteria involved in hyperpigmentation will be destroyed, thus preventing any infections and acne breakouts.
