With the support of F.O.N LLC within the framework of its charity program ‘Bet on Good’, a boarding facility for mentally challenged children in Arzamas will soon have a salt therapy room.
The Fund paid the manufacturer from St. Petersburg for the equipment for health improvement, installation work and delivery, 679 500 rubles in total. This company has already equipped health centers of various Russian ministries and departments and the largest Russian companies with salt therapy rooms, as well as other leading health and medical centers in the country. We are very glad that this wonderful invention for health improvement will be arranged for our beneficiaries – children who are deprived of many joys that are ordinary to most children. A salt therapy room has a dry and sterile environment that recreates a natural microclimate identical to salt caves and forests, where these children have never been to in their life and, most likely, will not be able to get to.
1700 kg of salt will be used to cover all surfaces of the salt room. In addition, salt will also be sprayed into the air through aerosols to saturate the room with ions, which has positive impact on the respiratory system, circulatory and nervous system, as well as the locomotor system and skin. And for children, whose physical and mental health has been severely undermined since birth, this will be particularly beneficial.
As part of the light and sound therapy, the room will also be equipped for producing a soft soothing light, which together with relaxing music (special record for children) creates a healing environment.
We hope that by the end of summer the room will be finished, and we will be able to share some photos.
