Respiratory health is at the forefront of our current news feed. We have been asked if visiting the Salt Room can protect against Coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We do not have a definitive answer, there are still too many unknowns. According to the Salt Therapy Association (STA), which we are a member, "Regarding respiratory hygiene, while there are no long-term studies that provide evidence that halotherapy can be used as a preventative measure for this coronavirus (COVID-19), it is widely known that dry salt therapy has antibacterial properties that could be beneficial."
The STA and the Seahorse suggest those concerned consult their physicians and visit informational websites such as www.cdc.gov and/or www.who.int
