Welcome to Matei’s Salt Cave

Salt Therapy (also called Halotherapy) is a powerful, natural treatment in a controlled air medium that simulates the natural salt cave microclimate to treat respiratory and skin conditions.

Who We Are

It all started with our beautiful little boy, Matei, meaning “Gift of God”.
Matei is our little gift, a gift of life, a gift of joy and happiness, our youngest child, a handsome boy with golden hair and hazelnut eyes. Matei is a happy little boy, always smiling, loving everyone around him and offering so much love to us, to his brother and sister, and all the family around him.
From a very young age, 10 months old, Matei started to develop bad tonsillitis and ear infection, which kept him ill, in bed with antibiotics, fever, loss of appetite and no joy for play.

What is Salt Therapy?

Salt therapy is a completely natural complementary treatment used to alleviate the symptoms of a variety of respiratory conditions and skin conditions as well as a variety of respiratory allergies.

How It Works?

All you need to do is sit back, relax and breathe naturally. Salt therapy is a drug free treatment which reproduces the natural micro-climate of a salt cave. It does this by dispersing dry salt in high concentrations into a salt room whose surfaces are also layered with salt.

Who Can Benefit?

Both adults and children can benefit from salt therapy.
Matei’s Salt Cave is an oasis of calm, where you can relax and unwind – you may even find yourself having a little doze – while breathing in the healthy atmosphere.

Breathing Conditions

The theory behind dry salt therapy and its ability to improve respiratory problems is that the salt helps to decrease inflammation and open up airway passages while helping to get rid of allergens and toxins from the respiratory system.

Many people who make halotherapy a part of their “wellness routine” may find relief from several respiratory health conditions including:

Salt Room in Dublin 15

Our Salt Room contains 20 tons of highest grade salt on the walls and the floor. The atmosphere of the salt room is an escape from the contaminated environments of our daily lives, free of allergens, pathogens, and pollutants. Any microorganisms that make their way inside do not survive. Such a sterile atmosphere is ideal for healing, and sets the stage for therapeutic action of the salt particles and negative ions that are created when salt breaks down due to heat and moisture of airway linings.
