Salt Therapy (Halotherapy) – Alternative Natural Therapy for Allergies, Skin and Respiratory Illnesses
Salt Therapy / Halotherapy involves a series of sessions in a man-made salt cave / room which reproduces the unique microclimate found in a natural salt cave and salt mine. Studies done in East Europe, where this therapy has its roots, show a 90% success rate with children under the age of 7 in reducing dependence on medication and relieving symptoms and 70% success rate for adults.
Salt Therapy / Halotherapy is a 100% safe, drug-free, non-invasive and can be used as a complementary treatment or as a sole treatment. Consult your doctor and ask if it can complement the treatment of your respiratory condition.
What is Salt Therapy?
Salt therapy (Halotherapy) have been proved to be an alternative and natural treatment method for a large number of ailments in the recent past and is an ancient technique of treatment. The usage of salt cave alternative/natural therapy has been growing steadily. As every individual cannot afford to go to the natural salt caves and treat themselves, we have brought the Salt Caves to North Vancouver BC. Innovations and recent techniques in reproducing the natural environment of salt caves have made this possible. We have imported tones of Himalayan salt and built this unique and relaxing environment for you.
A nebulizer is the unique piece of equipment that a person with asthma or another respiratory condition can use to administer saline mist directly and quickly to the lungs. Nebulizer provides a safe, effective, form of moist salt therapy.
How Does Nebulizer Work?
A nebulizer turns Himalayan salt-rich water solution into a mist to help treat your asthma or other respiratory conditions.
They come in electric or battery-run versions. They come in both a portable size you can carry with you and a larger size that’s meant to sit on a table and plug into a wall. Both are made up of a base that holds an air
compressor, a small container for Himalayan salt-rich water solution, and a tube that connects the air compressor to the
Himalayan salt-rich water solution container. Above the Himalayan salt-rich water solution container is a tube that shoots out the mist into the salt room.
A halogenerator is the machine that breathes life into the salt cave, chamber, or room. It is a unique piece of equipment that provides a safe, effective, form of dry salt therapy. There are some salt caves and salt rooms set up without halogenerators, but they are not authentic.
How Does Halogenerator Work?
A device called a halogenerator grinds salt into microscopic particles and releases them into the air of the room. Once inhaled, these salt particles are claimed to absorb irritants, including allergens and toxins, from the respiratory system. Last generation Halogenerator is used to disperse dry saline aerosol from the natural Himalayan rock salt; this guarantees maximum healing intensity and effectiveness. Dry saline generators are certified as medical devices in European countries, and are in use throughout Europe. Their use is increasing in North America with the escalating public interest in health
What People Say About Us!
Wow – it was an unbelievable experience. I never felt into such deeper meditative state.It was a gift from my boyfriend for a private salt therapy session. He meant that could help me with my breathing issue. I did not know what to expect. Salt therapy is something new for me, never heard about, much than less about healing salt crystal bed. The room is small and very private. Rocks of salt are all over around the walls and the salt below you is nicely warm. The soft nice music and the dimmed light that comes from the skyline and walls make me feel very very comfortable. Usual I am a little claustrophobic but not now. Everything is very clean and I got a brand-new sheet. I felt like I was lying on my own private beach ;). I felt relaxed and peaceful. My breath was smoothly, deep, very deep and rare and I had a very pleasant feeling all over my skin. I had a short nap as well-lol. OMG – way more than I have ever been expected. Love you George. Thanks Saltwonder.
P.S. 3 days later I can still feel that my breathing is smoother, and no shortness in breath for the moment. I will be back.

Each time I visit Saltwonder, I love the experience more and more. Had a wonderful session on the weekend, and wouldn’t leave without booking again.

A very clean facility, welcoming and quiet, “a little bit of history” from the proprietor, then shoes off, extraneous items tucked away safely, and *voila*…a lovely PINK Himalayan ROCK salt lined room, and with toes scrunching through the rock salt, to my ‘lounge recliner’, got comfy, and what seemed like ten minutes later(it was 45) I sensed, then heard “good morning”…I had fallen deliciously asleep. refreshingly quieter breathing(a bonus). I will definitely return.

The North Vancouver Salt Cave is really hidden in the corner of a very tiny mall. Their signage is very small and difficult to see from the road. However, once you find it, the experience is worth searching for. The owner is very friendly and willing to chat with you about the healing effects of the salt because he is very passionate about that.

Spent 45 glorious minutes in the cave today. I can’t remember the last time I felt so relaxed! I will definitely be back with my wee ones to see how they like it. Thanks for the great experience SaltWonder!

Went to Saltwonder for a birthday treat and immediately felt the difference in the air and had a very relaxing experience overall. Much care and thought has been put into this place and if I wasn’t on a short trip from England I’m sure I would be a regular visitor.
A very engaging experience. Cleared my sinuses and I slept like a baby afterward. The host was very informative and helpful. I would go again!

It’s an amazing place. I had been troubled with breathing problems lately. Went in there and sang (without coughing) all the way home. I will definitely (and have already begun) recommend to co-workers, friends, family with breathing & skin problems and stress. N.N It’s very relaxing.

I took my mother there because she has COPD and we had heard the salt caves are good for lung health. After one visit, she said the tightness in her chest that she has had for months has been greatly reduced. She has gone back 4 times now. She also said that she has had a toe nail fungus since 1997. She has put tons of creams and medications on it, and nothing worked. After 4 treatments at the salt cave, her toe nail is almost completely normal. What a great surprise!

Experienced the Salt Nebulizer room with my partner and we enjoyed every minute of it. It was definitely an exotic type ambiance that was simply relaxing. The owner gave us a tour and we will definitely get back to experience the Salt Cave therapy soon! Looks absolutely beautiful.
