Salt-Tech – How does the therapy room work?

You might have read our recent post introducing salt therapy in Hove, and be wondering how the salt is actually released into the environment. We thought it might be interesting to reveal how the conditions of natural salt mines are recreated at Salt Space, so we’ve lifted up the curtain to reveal how the machinery, known as a halogenerator, works.

What is a Halogenerator?

A halogenerator is the machine that is used to mimic the natural salt mines of Eastern Europe, and provide the unique properties and environment of dry salt therapy. The halogenerator is the equipment that transforms the space into a salt therapy room by grinding salt into micro-particles, before a fan distributes the salt to recreate the microclimate of a natural salt cave.

Carefully measured, therapeutic-grade salt crystals are poured into the halogenerator, which are then released into a grinder. The blade ensures effective and accurate grinding of the salt particles. It is this process that transforms the salt into precisely-measured micro-particles, ensuring even disbursement into the salt room.

The fan then disperses the particles into the air of the sterile salt therapy room. The machines are cleaned out daily, and feature sensors and indicators to ensure their continued safe operation.

Here at Salt Space we use a Prizma PrizSalt+, supplied by Solni Tempelj.

All of the main components are made from high-grade stainless steel to guarantee durability and reliability. The grinder ensures the salt particles are evenly ground, and therefore evenly disbursed throughout the salt room. The machines provide a continuous flow of salt throughout the therapy and salt concentration can be incrementally adjusted.


Dear Customers, Friends and Supporters, as you will be aware the Government has announced that most Covid guidance and legal restrictions will be lifted in England from Monday 19 July.  While this move will be welcomed by some of you, we understand that others of you will be more cautious. 

We have decided, therefore, to keep all our current protocols for now, so that everyone will continue to feel safe when on our premises:

  • We will maintain the same social distancing and extra cleansing protocols in place, so a maximum of 5 people in the Adult space and one family unit in each part of the Children’s space. 
  • We ask that, if you are able, you wear a mask in all areas and remove it when the session starts.  
  • There is a full air exchange between sessions, as always, and sessions will be spaced further apart to allow for deeper UV cleaning between.

If you have any questions for us, please do ask.
