We specialize in the assessment, treatment & prevention of breathing disorders.
We have the resources and the knowledge to help.
We are a respiratory treatment centre; this is all we do.
Our integrative healing-oriented approach takes into account the whole person - body, mind and spirit, as well as all aspects of a person’s life.
It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship and makes use of all appropriate therapies, both conventional (mainstream) and complementary/ alternative.
Integrative Medicine is a philosophy that neither rejects conventional medicine nor accepts complementary/alternative medicine uncritically; it combines the best of both approaches to wellness and healing.
Our Integrative Respiratory Clinic has a special focus on children.
In our clinic the treatment room was specially designed for paediatric practice. Everybody knows how difficult it is to irrigate the nose of a child with saline solution or to use an inhalation mask. Halotherapy makes it simple.
We designed our Halotherapy treatment room specifically for children. Children love to play in this "salt cave", not even noticing that they are being treated. There is a play area with toys and salt instead of sand, and a TV showing cartoons.
Micro-climate Dry Saline Aerosol therapy is safe, effective and pleasant.
Halotherapy can help to substitute for a seashore curative air microclimate since it has both therapeutic and preventive values.
Halotherapy treatment (hypertonic saline aerosol inhalation treatment) helps to treat all four major processes acting in the respiratory system: inflammation, bacterial infection, excessive mucus, spasm (bronchospasm), and hyperreactivity. In most patients, after the course of Halotherapy, the clinical condition improves and symptoms disappear or significantly ease.
Yes, Halotherapy is clinically proven:
Salt aerosol inhalation and the use of saline solutions are not new or foreign ideas – doctors have been using saline in mainstream medicine for a long time to help relieve respiratory conditions, sinusitis problems and allergy symptoms. "Inhalation of hypertonic saline produces a sustained acceleration of mucus clearance and improved lung function. This treatment may protect the lungs from insults that reduce mucus clearance and produce lung disease,” according to the clinical studies published in The New England Journal of Medicine, 2006; 354: 241-50.
“The clinical state of 85% of the patients with mild and moderate bronchial asthma, 75 % with severe bronchial asthma, 98% with chronic bronchitis, bronchiectasis and cystic fibrosis improved after Halotherapy. The patients were examined 6 and 12 months after the first Halotherapy course. No aggravations of the disease was seen from the third to the twelfth month. The average duration of the remission was 7.6-0.9 m. Most of the patients (60%) used no medication and sought no medical advice” according to the clinical study "Halotherapy for Treatment of Respiratory Diseases," published in the Journal of Aerosol Medicine, Volume 8, Number 3, 1995.
Halotherapy is 100% natural, safe and drug-free, providing effective long-term relief.
During a Halotherapy treatment session, patients inhale salt particles in the air (salt aerosol). Concentration of the salt aerosol does not exceed natural levels found in various salt mines/caves where respiratory clinics are located.
Since Halotherapy treatment has no known drug interactions, you or your child may safely add it to the prescribed medication in order to stop or reduce the amount of prescription medications and cut recovery time. It means that you run no risk in trying Halotherapy since you or your child continues with your current prescribed treatment plan anyway. Halotherapy gives you or your child an additional safe and effective treatment option for recovery that can be used with or without medications.
We understand that it is not easy to select a treatment or remedy for your child or yourself from the many options available. But the truth is it is not too difficult. You just need to know how to evaluate their safety and effectiveness. Your therapy choice criteria check list
