Wieliczka salt mine

The Origins of Halotherapy

The Wieliczka Salt Mines are said to be the birthplace of ‘Halotherapy’ or salt therapy. In 1843, a Polish physician, Dr. Felix Boczkowski, noticed that the workers in the salt mines had fewer respiratory issues compared to others.

He realized that as the workers were hammering, grinding, and chiseling away at the salt, they were creating micro-sized salt particles. The particles dispersed in the air around the workers, allowing them to inhale the salt. He attributed the wellness of the miners’ lungs to the introduction of salt in their airways.

Other medical professionals observed similar experiences across Eastern Europe over the next century.

It wasn’t until 1980 that the very first device was invented to mimic the grinding and dispersion of salt that took place in the mines. Many developments have been made since the creation of the first Halotherapy machine (HALO being derived from the Greek word for salt) and continue to be improved today.
