Estonian Daily Newspaper - the second most read newspaper in Estonia - published this article already in 2001.
"Salt room is like the magic land of the Snow Queen...expect that the white on the walls is salt and it's not cold in the salt room." After few sessions in a salt room, the asthma sufferers are able to breathe easier and children' cough becomes loose (due to mucous release). The manager of the Järvamaa Rehabilitation center, Mr Vaher, assures that it is not necessary to grasp the air while in the salt room. A person can totally relax and sleep for 45 minutes if he/she wishes.
The children can play with trucks in the snow, eg salt transportation, or build the salt caves for their toys.
The costs of salt therapy in a salt room in case of asthma and bronchitis are covered by the Estonian Health Insurance Fund. For other diseases, the patient has to pay himself.
