Halo from the Greek word for salt.
Salt bricks line the studio walls in conjunction with Ultrasonic salinizers, using ultrasonic frequency vibrations, to mimic the respiratory healing benefits of natural salt mines. Salt is transformed into micro particles, then dispensed into the surrounding indoor space enabling them, by breathing, to penetrate deep inside the lungs. Inhaling particles help the respiratory system reduce inflammation and mucus in the lungs, making it easier to breath and deliver increased oxygen to the blood. Salt levels also effect our cell activity, energy and blood
sugar levels, helping with conditions like psoriasis, rashes, eczema, and acne may also be improved.
