Salt Cave as a business idea.
What is a salt cave?
The salt cave is a room built of salt in such a way as to recreate a specific microclimate full of minerals, similar to that in salt mines. This is achieved by proper design, maintaining appropriate humidity, temperature and air circulation, as well as by using additional equipment in the form of salt aerosol generators. See also our videos about the salt cave.
What does a stay in a salt cave give you?
Staying in a salt cave gives a number of health benefits and is an increasingly popular method of increasing immunity, supporting the treatment of some diseases related to the respiratory system, as well as a form of relaxation, tranquility, or spending time with the family. Salt caves are particularly popular in urban agglomerations, where the air is sometimes polluted and residents do not always have the opportunity to go out of town. Therefore, a salt cave as a business idea may turn out to be a very good investment.
How to build a salt cave?
With the currently quite large availability of salt-building materials, it may seem tempting to try to build a salt cave on your own. However, it should be remembered that salt, due to its physical and chemical properties, is quite a specific material and requires special treatment. In addition, the salt cave is not only walls lined with salt but also lighting systems for salt blocks and bricks, ventilation systems, and brine graduation towers. It is therefore worth commissioning the design and construction to an experienced contractor who will not only carry out the order with the utmost care but also provide a guarantee and provide subsequent service. In addition, if the salt cave is to be our business idea, he will also provide the necessary advice, both as to which cave to choose and how to run the future facility.
Salt cave — types of salt caves.
The main types of salt caves that we can distinguish are traditional and modern salt caves and white sea salt caves. Traditional salt caves are mostly built of unpolished blocks so that they resemble natural caves. In the construction of modern caves, more polished bricks are used, e.g. quite smooth walls or pillars are built. However, nothing limits us except fantasy and imagination, so we can freely mix both styles. When it comes to the type of salt, the most popular are bricks or lumps of pink Himalayan salt, although white bricks have recently gained a lot of interest. They all go well with wooden or stone structures, which can often be found in caves. salt room
A salt cave as a business idea can be an interesting extension of the treatment offered in already existing Wellness and SPA centers, all kinds of health resorts, water parks, and relaxation zones. Increasingly, salt caves are also built in small, intimate guesthouses or hotels. They then constitute an interesting extension of the offer, give guests the opportunity to spend time alternatively, and at the same time slightly improve their health.
Salt aerosol generator.
Salt generator — what is it?
A salt aerosol generator, salt generator, or halogenerator is a device that produces a salt aerosol, which is an important element of the equipment of salt caves and inhalation rooms. The salt generator proposed by our company is a device of the highest quality, which was the only one to receive a medical certificate. This certificate guarantees the highest efficiency, safety of use, and safety for the service provider in public facilities. salt Cave
How it’s working?
The salt generator is an automatic device that produces a salt aerosol, also called a salt mist. A salt solution of appropriate concentration is converted into an aerosol with particles of 1 to 5 microns. This is extremely important because only particles of this size are able to reach deep into our respiratory system, up to the bronchi and bronchioles. Particles from 5 to 8 microns will reach the trachea and large bronchi, while particles above 8 microns will only reach the pharynx, larynx, and nasopharynx. In addition, in the salt caves and inhalation rooms currently under construction, which are not equipped with a halogenerator, it is possible to achieve a salt concentration of 0.45 mg NaCl/m3 of air, which is not a very good result compared to the concentration obtained in the vicinity of the graduation tower, which is over 8 mg NaCl/m3. In the salt mine in Wieliczka this concentration is around 22 mg NaCl/m3. As it is easy to see, the use of a salt generator seems to be necessary to achieve the optimal salt concentration in the room, and thus ensure the best therapeutic effects of the treatment, which is a visit to a salt cave or inhalation room.
Installation and operation.
The salt aerosol generator is used in salt caves and inhalation rooms. It is usually mounted indoors
Salt cave — indications and contraindications.
What is a salt cave?
A salt cave is a room made of salt in the form of lumps or bricks. Often, these solids or bricks are illuminated in various colors. This allows you to get unique and extremely charming visual effects. The salt cave is designed and built in such a way that the microclimate in it is as close as possible to that in salt mines. This is due to a number of factors. These include the basic building material, i.e. salt, as well as additional equipment in the form of a graduation tower and the highest quality brine aerosol generators. Proper ventilation and maintaining a certain temperature are also important. Air humidity inside the salt cave is also important.
How does the salt cave work?
The microclimate in the salt cave is similar to that in salt mines. This means that the air filling the cave is saturated with salt and minerals naturally contained in it. Staying in such an environment gives us invaluable benefits, at the same time without negative interference in the body. There are also a number of health indications for using the salt cave because it has been proven that salt has a healing and supportive effect in the treatment of many different diseases and ailments.
Indications for using the salt cave:
- Hypothyroidism — the mineral-rich environment in the salt cave, apart from a number of others, also contains natural iodine, the supplementation of which is important in hypothyroidism.
- Chronic, recurrent respiratory tract infections — salt-saturated air that we inhale during a stay in the salt cave disinfects and cleanses the respiratory tract, which helps in the fight against troublesome symptoms.
-Asthma- the use of the salt cave is a good complement to the pharmacological treatment of this disease.
-Fatigue, stress, neurosis, and high blood pressure — staying in the salt cave is also relaxing and relaxing, and it helps to calm down and calm down.
- Psoriasis — salt has a disinfecting effect, helps to soothe inflammation, and improves skin condition.
Contraindications to using the salt cave:
Despite the many advantages and benefits of using a salt cave, there are also contraindications that should be taken into account. Belong to them:
-allergy to iodine,
- acute inflammation,
- viral infections,
-open wounds, burns, frostbite.
It is worth considering all the indications and contraindications for using the salt cave, so as to take full advantage of its beneficial effects, but also not to harm yourself. In case of any doubts as to whether our current state of health allows for such a visit, let us consult the planned stay with a doctor. Let us also remember that the treatment in the salt cave-salt room is not a cure, but a treatment support, as well as prevention, which will not replace proper therapy ordered by a doctor.
Salt inhalation room — salt cave.
What is a salt inhalation room and how is it different from a salt cave?
The salt inhalation room is a room built of salt, similar to the salt cave, with the difference that the inhalation room is a much smaller room. Its area is usually 10–15 m². The floor in the inhalation room can be paved with salt bricks or sprinkled with coarse-grained rock salt. Optionally, brine graduation towers can also be installed. An integral part of the salt inhalation room is the highest quality salt mist generator, which fills the room with this mist in order to obtain its expected concentration.
How does the inhalation room work?
The salt inhalation room is designed in such a way as to recreate the microclimate characteristic of the sea coast during a storm. This is achieved thanks to the presence of a salt aerosol produced by a medical generator. The particles of this aerosol have a size of 1 to 5 micrometers, they are concentrated in the amount of 3–5 mg of particles per 1 cubic meter. Studies show that such dispersion is the most optimal to achieve the best health effects. In addition, salt, which is the basic building material, ionizes the air with negative ions and also contributes to maintaining proper humidity and a low content of microorganisms inside. The combination of all these factors makes the stay in the salt inhalation room not only a valuable health treatment but also a pleasant time.
Stay in an inhalation room.
A stay in a salt inhalation room is similar to a stay in a salt cave, but it is a bit shorter. Due to the greater concentration of the salt aerosol, it is enough to spend about 20–30 minutes there for the optimal effect. As in the case of the salt cave, during the session, you lie on deckchairs, and blankets are often offered to cover you for the highest comfort. While in the inhalation room, we inhale a suitably concentrated salt mist, which thanks to the appropriate particle size reaches deep into the respiratory system, cleanses it, disinfects it, strengthens it, and saturates it with precious minerals.
Health benefits, indications and contraindications.
Indications for using the salt inhalation room are similar to those for the salt cave. These include asthma, some allergies, hypothyroidism, recurrent catarrh of the lower and upper respiratory tract, skin problems, psoriasis, reduced immunity, and some diseases of the digestive system. salt Cave
It should be remembered that treatments in the salt inhalation room are not a form of treatment, but only support and prevention. They will not replace proper therapy ordered by a doctor. We also do not treat them as a form of treatment for already developed infections, because it may lead to the intensification of some symptoms, as well as irritation. There are also some contraindications, including hyperthyroidism, high fever, viral and bacterial infections, iodine allergy, tuberculosis, cancer, emphysema, and claustrophobia. In case of any doubts about your health, you can consult a visit to the salt inhalation room with your doctor.
A bit of history.
Many people probably wonder where the idea for building salt caves came from, what gives us stay in them and does it really work. Well, in the 19th century, Feliks Boczkowski, a doctor of medicine and surgery, who was then a sanitary doctor in the Wieliczka Salt Mine, discovered that the miners working in that mine enjoyed exceptional health and respiratory efficiency. Based on many years of research, he came to the conclusion that it is the specific microclimate prevailing in the adits, saturated with minerals released from salt deposits, and the high-value salt itself that has such a beneficial effect on health. Dr. Boczkowski initiated the treatment with brine baths and published the results of his research in a scientific dissertation on the treatment with the use of brines. Currently, treatment with the use of salt, i.e. halotherapy, is an increasingly popular method for multidirectional improvement of health and supporting the treatment of many different diseases.
What does a salt cave look like?
A properly built salt cave should resemble the microclimate of salt mines as much as possible. It consists of a number of factors, such as salt, from which the cave is built, but also the right temperature and air humidity. Air humidification, enrichment with valuable minerals, and decorative value are provided by brine graduation towers located inside the grotto. They can come in various forms, made of twigs or stone. A huge plus is if the salt cave has additional equipment in the form of a salt mist generator and an air ionizer. Then we are assured of the highest quality and noticeable health effects.
How to build a salt cave?
For someone with some knowledge of building and design, building a salt cave on your own can seem like a fairly simple task. Especially since salt building materials such as salt bricks of various shapes and colors or salt lumps are easily available, our company offers a wide selection. However, keep in mind that salt is a specific material and requires a slightly different approach. In addition, the salt cave is not only walls lined with salt bricks. These are also lighting, ventilation, and heating systems. Graduation towers and additional equipment, such as salt mist generators. It is therefore worth entrusting the design and construction to an experienced contractor who will advise, design and manufacture the mainsail with the highest accuracy and guarantee, and also propose a service for the future, if necessary.
Types of salt caves.
When it comes to types of salt caves, there are two main ones: traditional and modern, and their various combinations. With the currently really high availability and multitude of salt building materials, it can be safely said that there are as many types as there are design ideas. In addition, salt goes well with wooden and stone elements, which further expands the possibilities. Nothing limits us except imagination and possible technical conditions.
How does the salt cave work?
What does a stay in a salt cave look like?
A salt cave is a room built of salt lumps or bricks, where coarse salt is often sprinkled on the floor. It is designed and constructed in such a way as to recreate the specific microclimate in salt mines as faithfully as possible. This is achieved by ensuring the proper temperature and air humidity in the cave, as well as additional equipment, which is the highest quality salt mist generators. They produce a salt aerosol that is let inside the cave, which significantly enriches the environment there.
A single stay in the salt cave usually lasts 45–50 minutes. Most often, you lie on deckchairs, inhaling the air full of minerals. The light is moody, and subdued, and we can usually listen to soft relaxing music.
What does staying in a salt cave give us?
Natural minerals that are released from the salt blocks forming the salt cave and those contained in the salt mist create a specific microclimate, extremely beneficial for our health. Such a gentle inhalation saturates the body with minerals, cleanses and disinfects the respiratory system, and strengthens it, thus increasing the body’s immunity. Using the salt cave also has a positive effect on the skin, especially with various problems, such as atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, or skin allergies. In addition, a stay in a salt cave is an extremely relaxing and relaxing experience. Delicate light diffused inside, relaxing music, and the murmur of water in the brine graduation towers help to calm down, soothe the nerves, and lower blood pressure.
Who can use the salt cave and what are the indications?
The salt cave can be used by anyone, without age restrictions, with the exception of certain contraindications, which can be read further in the text. The operation of the salt cave is based mainly on the effect on the respiratory system, which is why staying in the salt cave is a valuable supplement to the treatment of diseases associated with it. However, it should be remembered that we do not treat such treatments as a cure, but rather as prevention and support for other therapies.
Indications for using the salt cave are:
- recurrent inflammation of the respiratory tract,
- dermatological diseases,
- chronic stress,
- some diseases of the digestive system,
- lowered immunity.
Who should not use the salt cave?
A stay in a salt cave is a pleasant way to spend time, which brings a number of health benefits. We must remember that it is not a medicine and will not replace the proper therapy recommended by a doctor in the case of specific diseases, but it can complement it. It is important not to visit the salt cave when we are already sick, during viral respiratory infections, if only because some troublesome symptoms may intensify during and after such a visit. In addition, the grotto is usually used by more people at a time, so we should not expose other users to unpleasant experiences and possible infections. Other contraindications are:
- allergic to iodine,
- lung diseases,
- viral infections,
- open wounds, skin damage, frostbite,
How to use the salt cave?
What is a salt cave?
A salt cave is a room built of bricks or blocks of natural salt. It is designed in such a way that the microclimate inside it is rich in minerals released from salt and resembles as much as possible the one prevailing in the salt mine in Wieliczka. This is achieved by providing a number of necessary factors in the cave, such as the right temperature, air humidity, and proper circulation. This microclimate is enriched by the presence of brine graduation towers in the cave and appropriate, top-quality additional equipment, such as salt mist generators and air ionizers.
What gives us using the salt cave?
Using the salt cave is primarily the prevention of diseases and ailments related to the respiratory system. Improving its functioning brings many benefits, which translates into a general increase in the body’s immunity. Regular visits to the salt cave are also recommended for people with hypothyroidism, dermatological diseases, allergies, and hypertension. In addition, using the salt cave is also a great way to relax, unwind and calm down, which is why it is recommended for people exposed to stress, nervous or overtired. It is also a good idea to spend time together, because you can visit the grotto with the whole family, improving your health a bit at the same time.
What does a stay in a salt cave look like?
Depending on the point, the stay in the salt cave lasts about 45 minutes. Most often, you lie on deckchairs, the lights are dimmed, and gentle, relaxing music plays in the background. In a state of calmness and relaxation, grotto users breathe air saturated with salt and minerals, and after the session they leave rested, relaxed and happy. If we visit the salt cave with children, most of the caves have toys for the youngest or a play corner, so that this time is also pleasantly spent by them.
How often can you use the salt cave?
For therapeutic purposes, it is worth using regularly, optimally 2–3 times a week, so as to receive at least 10 treatments. Prophylactically and for relaxation purposes, a little less, 1–2 times a week or whenever we feel like it, but not too often, because although there is no possibility of overdosing, it is possible to irritate the respiratory tract with too much frequency. Let us also remember that treatments in the salt cave are not a cure, but supportive treatment and prevention. Therefore, let us not come to the cave during an ongoing infection, with a high fever. It is better to wait until your health improves so that you can safely and comfortably and fully benefit from the beneficial treatment.
How to prepare for the screening?
Basically, a visit to a salt cave does not require any special preparation. Depending on the rules prevailing in a given facility, clothing is rather free, preferably casual, most often a change of socks or flip-flops is required. Some venues only require white socks, others don’t specify a color. It also happens that some facilities offer special protectors worn over shoes. This is especially true for older people who may have trouble taking off their shoes. Before using the salt cave, it is worth getting information about the rules in a given place and whether reservations are required.
Where did brine graduation towers come from?
The oldest mentions of brine graduation towers date back to the 14th century. The first structures of this type were built in northern Italy, later they spread throughout most of Europe. Initially, brine graduation towers were used to obtain table salt by evaporating the brine flowing down the twigs, but when it was realized that staying in their vicinity brought a number of health benefits, they began to build them for therapeutic purposes. In Poland, the first brine graduation towers were built in the 17th century in Kołobrzeg.
How does the brine graduation tower work?
A graduation tower is a structure made of wood and blackthorn twigs, coniferous trees or birch. Sometimes stone is also used, such as slate or various combinations of all these materials. In the graduation tower, brine, rich in minerals, circulates in a closed circuit, which, flowing down the branches, breaks up on them into smaller and smaller droplets, floating in the air in the vicinity of the graduation tower. The treatment consists in staying near the graduation towers and inhaling brine-saturated air. If the graduation tower is placed in a closed room, e.g. in a salt cave, it fills it with minerals and moistens the interior, creating a unique microclimate that is extremely beneficial for health.
Currently, brine graduation towers are not only used in health resorts, of which they are often a symbol. They are often really spectacular buildings with an interesting structure. It can be safely said that they are experiencing a kind of renaissance, more and more willingly installed as equipment for Wellness and Spa zones and, of course, an indispensable element of salt cave equipment. A professionally made salt graduation tower will not only be an element enriching the treatment value of the salt cave or the Spa zone. Thanks to the use of various materials for its construction and a bit of fantasy, it can also be a beautiful decoration.
Who can use the graduation tower?
Indications and contraindications for using the brine graduation tower are almost identical to those for using the salt cave. There are also no age restrictions. Staying in the vicinity of graduation towers has a soothing effect on the respiratory system, saturates the body with minerals such as iodine, bromine, magnesium, calcium, potassium or iron, thus increasing its immunity. It is recommended to everyone, with the exception of certain contraindications, for prophylactic purposes and as an aid in the treatment of allergies, recurrent catarrh of the respiratory tract, sinus problems, and hypothyroidism. When it comes to contraindications, as in the case of salt caves, they include:
- severe inflammation of the respiratory tract,
- allergic to iodine,
- allergic to other minerals contained in the brine,
- lung diseases,
- viral infections,
-skin damage, open wounds, frostbite,
- circulatory and respiratory failure
Salt sauna is a relatively new idea to use salt and its healing properties. It is also an interesting opportunity to develop and expand the offer of SPA and Wellness zones. Thanks to the use of salt elements in the sauna, we will not only create a unique interior, conducive to relaxation, but also enhance the health effect of the sauna. The salt present in the salt sauna will make the air inside it negatively ionized and enriched with minerals.
How does the salt sauna work on the body?
The operation of the salt sauna is somewhat similar to the operation of the salt cave. Negatively ionized air, full of natural minerals, strengthens and cleanses the respiratory tract, soothes irritations, strengthens the mucous membranes in the respiratory system, which greatly contributes to the overall improvement of the body’s immunity. Minerals that, among others, occur in the salt sauna are:
- calcium — strengthens the mucous membranes, increases immunity, soothes irritations, regulates the functions of the circulatory system,
- iodine — supports the proper functioning of the thyroid gland,
- magnesium — affects the circulatory and nervous systems, supports regeneration after exercise,
- potassium, sodium — has a positive effect on the work of the heart, improves blood supply to the skin and organs,
- iron — improves blood structure, is a component of hemoglobin,
- selenium — has a positive effect on the condition of the skin.
In addition, staying in the salt sauna is an excellent form of rest and relaxation. Delicate lighting inside, often romantic music, create an unusual atmosphere in which we can spend a nice time, soothe the nerves, reduce muscle tension.
How to use the salt sauna?
With a normal, balanced lifestyle, it is optimal to use the salt sauna 2–3 times a week. Higher frequency is recommended for athletes or people who train intensively or are exposed to prolonged effort. Then, using the salt sauna significantly accelerates the regeneration of the strained body, and also improves respiratory efficiency, which is of particular importance, for example, for runners.
To get the best results, the use of the salt sauna should be as follows: we go inside for 10–15 minutes, then go out and take a cool shower, dry ourselves and come back inside. We repeat this action three times.
Indications and contraindications.
We use the salt sauna preventively; in order to increase the body’s immunity, in periods of increased incidence of respiratory infections, as well as for relaxation and regeneration purposes. In turn, when it comes to diseases, using the salt sauna can be a valuable supplement to the treatment of diseases related to the respiratory system, asthma, allergies, as well as hypothyroidism and dermatological diseases. Also recommended for people exposed to stress, physical exertion, intensively training athletes and for anyone who wants to take care of their health.
Contraindications include: hyperthyroidism, high fever, ongoing infections, pregnancy, menstruation, claustrophobia, heart disease, cancer, open wounds, burns, frostbite.
What does a Finnish sauna look like?
The Finnish sauna, as it is easy to deduce from the name, has its roots in Finland, where, as an element of the local tradition, it is still the equipment of many households. It is a room built of wood or lined with wood. Most often it is cedar wood or Canadian fir. Inside, there are benches, usually stepped, also made of wood. The air in the Finnish sauna is dry, it has about 15% humidity, which is why this type of sauna is often called a dry sauna. The temperature inside ranges from 80 to 120 degrees.
How do we use this type of sauna?
The stay in the Finnish sauna should last about 8 to 12 minutes. Dress is an important aspect. We avoid bathing suits and wrapping ourselves in a towel too much. It is best to stay naked in the sauna, then the body heats up in the most appropriate way. We sit or lie down on benches, and avoid walking. After the appropriate time, we go out and cool down the body in the shower, in the cool air, or in the snow or water tank, depending on the available conditions. We dry ourselves and repeat the cycle up to 2 or 3 times.
What are the health benefits of a Finnish sauna?
Using this sauna brings a number of health benefits. The increase in body temperature caused by staying in the sauna accelerates blood circulation, improves blood supply to internal organs, accelerates metabolism, and helps to remove toxins. Alternating heating and cooling of the body hardens it and activates defense mechanisms in the body, which translates into increased immunity.
Treatments in the Finnish sauna will bring relief to people suffering from rheumatic pains, muscle pain, asthma, peripheral circulation disorders, anemia, blood pressure drops, and skin problems, especially a tendency to eczema. In addition, using this sauna improves digestion and speeds up metabolism, which will be appreciated by people who want to lose some weight or simply care about its proper maintenance. A stay in a Finnish sauna is also an effective form of relaxation and relaxation, the heat improves mood, relieves mental tension, reduces fatigue. Therefore, it is recommended to use it for people suffering from depression and those exposed to long-term stress, neurotic.
Despite the huge number of advantages and benefits of treatments in the Finnish sauna, unfortunately, not everyone can afford to visit it. Contraindications include hypertension, heart disease, circulatory failure, heart failure, coronary artery disease, tumors, ulcers, acute asthma, epilepsy, glaucoma, claustrophobia, and venereal diseases. It is also not recommended that the elderly and small children use the Finnish sauna, as well as pregnant and menstruating women. All kinds of infections, ongoing diseases, acute inflammation, and high fever are also contraindications.
The healing effect of the salt sauna.
What is a salt sauna?
Salt sauna is a relatively new and increasingly popular idea to use the healing properties of salt. It is a type of dry sauna, in which bricks or salt panels were used as an element of decor or construction. This is to increase the health value of using the sauna and is also an interesting decorative element. Thanks to the use of salt elements, we obtain an atmospheric interior, conducive to relaxation and a negatively ionized microclimate, rich in microelements.
How does the salt sauna work on the body?
A stay in a salt sauna brings similar benefits as a dry sauna. Its healing effect consists, among others, in improving blood circulation, which supports the blood supply to organs, regenerating the body by warming up and cooling it, increasing immunity, and stimulating defense mechanisms. Using the salt sauna also has a positive effect on the skin, especially seborrheic skin prone to blemishes. Under the influence of heat, the pores expand, and excess sebum is naturally removed. The salt sauna has the advantage over the ordinary sauna that thanks to the presence of salt, we obtain a specific microclimate inside. Staying in it gives us similar benefits as salt inhalations. Salt blocks and bricks placed in the sauna under the influence of heat ionize the air with negative ions and release a number of minerals. As a result, the salt sauna has a beneficial effect on our respiratory system, cleanses it, dilutes residual secretions, thus improving its efficiency.
How to use the salt sauna?
In order for the healing effect of the salt sauna to be as effective as possible, it should be used in the correct way. Preferably 2–3 times a week, and in the case of people undertaking regular, hard effort or intensely training athletes, you can definitely do more often. We stay in the salt sauna for 8 to 15 minutes, then we leave, take a cool shower, dry the body with a towel, and return to the sauna again. We repeat this operation 3 times. It is worth remembering about proper hydration, both before and during use, we should drink plenty of water.
Who can use the salt sauna?
With the exception of certain contraindications, which are discussed later in the text, the salt sauna can be used by anyone who wants to improve their health and immunity. In particular, people struggling with chronic respiratory ailments, asthma, allergies, recurrent catarrh of the respiratory tract, and sinus problems. Also, athletes, are people who train intensively in order to accelerate the regeneration of the body and improve respiratory efficiency. Let’s not forget that a stay in a salt sauna is also relaxing and relaxing, so it will certainly be useful for people with neuroses, exposed to stress, will improve the quality of sleep, and help soothe the nerves.
Despite the fact that the salt sauna has a wide and effective healing effect, unfortunately, not everyone can use its benefits. There are some contraindications, which include:
- infections, colds, acute inflammation with high fever,
- hypertension, circulatory failure, heart disease, coronary artery disease,
- lung diseases, infectious diseases,
-open wounds, burns, frostbite.
In case of any doubts, it is worth consulting a visit with a doctor, then we will be sure whether the healing effect of the salt sauna will be beneficial and effective in our case.
