Modern salt therapy has its origin in Speleotherapy, a method of treatment of respiratory diseases in salt mines, dating back to the 19 century. In speleotherapy, fine particles and negative ions of salt, found naturally in salt mines, are freely breathed for four to six hours daily. These breathable salt particles are able to penetrate deep into the lungs and have been found to help relieve respiratory conditions such as asthma, COPD, bronchitis, emphysema, pneumonia and sinusitis. The beneficial effects of salt therapy are due to the antibacterial, mucokinetic and anti-inflammatory properties of natural rock salt.
Travelling to salt sanatoriums in old salt mines is inconvenient for most people, especially for those with chronic respiratory diseases. Due to the highly beneficial results of speleotherapy and to the increased number of people with respiratory problems and allergies, artificial salt rooms and spas are becoming more and more popular. Sessions are about 45 minutes to one hour long and many demand at least 12 consecutive sessions for lasting results, at a cost varying from $35 up to $60 per session. 

Less expensive, home salt therapy is also available for longer convenient, sessions. Small hand-held and larger salinizer devices are now marketed worldwide. We created the SaltAir saline therapy device because we found a great and growing demand for this type of natural therapy at home. As a natural health practitioner, I see in my practice that there continues to be a growing number of respiratory sufferers of all ages.  
The SaltAir device uses ultrasonic technology to transform the saline solution into microscopic salt particles. These breathable salt particles are released into the indoor air for breathing, offering extended 7-8 hours of exposure during sleep or while at home. Long-term, extended periods of exposure was found to be critical in the care of chronic respiratory diseases with salt therapy. Cumulative results in time, strengthen the respiratory system for increased immunity to bacterial, viral and fungal infections and allergens.
