Salt room in new wellness centre of Zdravilišče Laško hotel

Salt therapy is based on inhalation and exposure of the body to a dry salt aerosol and is performed in salt room. It is performed with the help of a medical device - halogenerator, which systematically blows micron fragments of dry salt aerosol of pure rock salt into the room, thus creating a microclimate of natural salt pits.
The dry salt aerosol cleans and purifies the respiratory system and skin. The dry salt aerosol in the salt room creates a sterile, hypobacterial, negative ion-charged atmosphere. The more negative ions, the more efficient cellular renewal is.
The positive effects of salt therapies are reflected in the improvement of pulmonary function, strengthening of the immune system and thickness of mucous membrane, because the aerosol of the salt has anti-inflammatory properties, thinning the mucus it relaxes the airway muscles, facilitates coughing and improves airway patency. The salt aerosol contains particles ranging in size from 10 to 1 μm (microns). Particle sizes between 5 and 10 microns are beneficial for the upper respiratory tract, and particles between 1 and 5 microns are beneficial for the lower respiratory tract.
By inhaling the fine micro-particles of the salt aerosol, these will be transferred to the smallest parts of the bronchi in the lungs, to other parts of the airways, sinuses and nasal cavity. Salt parts act as an antibacterial agent, ionizing the air and replenishing it with minerals and trace elements that dilute mucus and help eliminate it from the airways, sinuses and ears, restore mucous membranes, and help build a healthy immune system. In addition, it stimulates the function of the lymphatic system, which helps the body clean itself of toxins and toxins.

In skin diseases, the salt aerosol works from the inside out, removing toxins from the body and promoting skin regeneration. With the help of salt therapies, the cells in the body get the necessary microelements they need for their growth.
