HaloSPA – the new concept
In recent years, a new field of application of dry sodium chloride aerosol (DSCA) has started to develop – the HaloSPA™ technology.
More and more people suffer from environmental pollution, and they turn to wellness and spa-centers looking for cleaning and sanitation of airways, trying to escape from allergies, infections, and stresses. But none of the existing spa-methods have any direct sanitizing effect on bronchial tubes and lungs. And it turns out, that the only body system, which interacts with the polluted environment at most, lies beyond the spa influence.
New HaloSPA™ technology is bringing the natural health-improving factors closer to a man. The core of HaloSPA™ is a creation of controlled salt aerosol healing microclimate indoors, in the salt rooms.
Our research of efficacy of DSCA application on practically healthy persons (i.e., tobacco-smokers, persons with risk factors for respiratory diseases, children in preschools and schools) have revealed the fact that DSCA is helpful and safe. The results of research demonstrated the stimulation of bronchial drainage function and sanitary action of DSCA in persons with a respiratory risk factor. DSCA relieves the main clinical signs of tobacco smokers (the character of a cough and sputum), of tobacco smokers, owing to decreased colonization activity of pathogenic microorganisms and increased SIgA. In persons with respiratory risk factors, it improves host defense mechanisms and strengthens the resistance of mucous membranes.
DSCA works as a “bronchial brush.” HaloSPA™ opportunity to provide respiratory hygiene is the necessary element of spa-influence. DSCA has beneficial influence not only on the respiratory system but skin and hair as well, giving healing and cosmetic effect. HaloSPA™ delivers multi-purpose health improvement for lungs, skin, and immune system, and considerably increases and enriches the range of health-improving services. Usefulness of application of DSCA in a salt room is combined with the comfort of the procedure. Stay in comfortable ambiance of a salt room and positive effect of HaloSPA™ procedure on psycho-emotional state, create additional opportunities and advantages for application of DSCA in spa and wellness centers during health vacations.
Since 2006, the technology of HaloSPA™ began to spread. Method began to be widely applied in the spa industry and resorts in Europe, America, Asia, and in Australia.
Of course, HaloSPA™ has its limitations, just like any other spa method, that actively influences the human body.
For the application of health-improving HaloSPA™ procedure, the only suitable devices (i.e. halogenerators) are the ones that
a. Produce DSCA of certain physical characteristics.
b. Support the dosing of dry salt aerosol.
c. Maintain chosen DSCA concentration during the flow of procedure.
Application of HaloSPA™ with such devices secures the positive effect of the procedure and minimizes the risk of possible complications.
