According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) allergic conditions are the most common medical condition affecting children in the United States. Allergies are also known as a hypersensitivity disorder in which the immune system reacts to substances in the environment that are normally considered harmless. Food or digestive allergies, skin allergies (such as eczema), and respiratory allergies (such as hay fever) are the most common allergies amongst children.

Halotherapy can bring much-needed relief for individuals suffering from allergies. Salt is known to be an anti-inflammatory which can remove pathogen agents or airborne pollen and reduces IgE levels which can cause oversensitivity of the immune system. When completing a halotherapy treatment, clients breathe in a saline aerosol generated through the Halogenerator which circulates grade sodium chloride within an enclosed room.
