Speleotherapy: The therapeutic use of salt mines, caves or other forms of exposure to salt air.
Id’ never heard about it before either until I saw the photos of Kirill Kuletski, a London based photographer who’s photos of this alternative form of therapy definitely grabbed my attention. Speleotherapy is thought to cure respiratory diseases like asthma by forcing patients to breathe harder because of the higher concentrations of carbon dioxide, thus strengthening their lungs… or something like that. I have no opinion the practice but these photos are riveting. Could you imagine sitting in a bed in a cave?
