In modern medical and health practice, a large number of terms are used to indicate the procedures for staying in the atmosphere, a similar environment of caves or salt mines:

• Halotherapy
• Speleotherapy
• speleoclimatic therapy
• Silvinitis therapy
• Silvinotherapy
• Silvinitis speleotherapy

Usually, under all these terms refers to the procedure of staying in natural or artificially created conditions of karst caves. Part of the terms is based on the name of the salt – sylvite and refers to the procedure of staying in the natural environment or the room, reproducing the environment of the Sylvinnite caves. In most cases, they can be considered synonymous with the previous ones.

The rooms in which the procedures for halotherapy are performed are called:
• Salt room
• Salt Cave
• Salt chamber
• Salt room
• Salt Cave
• Salt chamber
• speleotherapy room
• Speleocamera
• Halocamer
• Hall of fame
• Halotherapy room.

Salt or salt? From the point of view of most explanatory dictionaries, both adjectives come from the word “salt”. The subtle meaning difference is usually made in that “salt” is that which includes salt, for example, saline solution, and salt – consisting of salt, for example, salt mines. In the annexe to the premises for halotherapy commonly used adjectives “salt”, “salt”.

In salt rooms, there are two principles for creating a special environment.

The first involves the lining of the room with special salt blocks of natural or artificial origin.

The second – in addition to facing, uses a fine dispersion of salt aerosol, which saturates the atmosphere of the room with salty microparticles. The aerosol dispenser is usually called the halogenator.
In the literature, one can find the division of terms in such a way that the names containing the speleo-particles refer to chambers whose surfaces are made of silvinite and which do not use aerosol sputtering. And the names with a particle halo relate to the premises using dry aerosol halite – sodium chloride. In practice, there is a noticeable mix of terms.
It should also be understood that the actual “salt” in salt rooms and speleocamera can vary significantly in composition. In salt rooms can be used:
• salts of natural origin from the caves
• salts of natural origin from salt mines
• salts of artificial origin of one or another composition.

In most cases, the origin of the salt does not affect the effectiveness of the procedure. Pure artificial salt can boast a clearly defined composition, which eliminates heterogeneity of the formation and possible changes in the microclimate of the salt room. Natural salts are good for fans of naturalness and sometimes the inclusion of microcomponents, which are difficult to reproduce in artificial conditions.
