Clinical Studies

Dry Salt Therapy, also known as “Halotherapy” has been researched extensively and backed by clinical studies in Europe in the last 50 years.

At the Salt Therapy Clinic & Sanctuary, whilst we are not here to advocate that you ignore your current medical treatments or to make any changes to your usual medical dosage without consulting your own doctor for advice, we are here simply to offer you the option of incoporating Halotherapy as a complementary and alternative natural therapy to your routine wellness plan.

We will be updating you with new information on Salt related clinical research and news once we receive them to enable you to make an informed decision as to whether incorporating Salt Therapy as part of embracing a more holistic lifestyle may be suitable for you.
