The treatment – for people of any age, children and families – gives a relaxation to the muscles, helping the posture of our body to release from tension and stiffness. The purpose of the treatment is not to replace antibiotic, medical or spa therapies, but to offer an innovative instrument to help our body to find the right balance and give us a moment of wellness and relaxation, as well as helping healthy and aesthetic situations, such as breathing, dermatitis and psoriasis, blemishes and cellulite. We have to specify that the results of the studies described and the scientific assessments show that only the Himalayan crystal can be considered the true salt, being the only one complete and pure for its composition and antiquity. With a session of only 30 minutes in the salt cave, the body is able to absorb such a quantity of microelements that only a stay at the sea for three days, in the period immediately following a storm, can guarantee.
