Salt has been used for its healing and therapeutic qualities for thousands of years from a variety of geographic regions and cultures. In modern times, dry salt therapy, also called Halotherapy, has been observed and researched with recorded studies that go as far back as the early 1800’s from physicians and scientists throughout Europe and the Far East. In the past few decades, more recent and current clinical studies have been published showing the efficacy of dry salt therapy and its application to various conditions.
As part of the Salt Therapy Association objectives, we will encourage, foster and conduct ongoing research with various partners to continue develop and enhance the benefits of dry salt therapy. The STA will continue to develop ongoing educational and training programs to share this information and promote standards and better protocols for dry salt therapy.
