Speleotherapy – This treatment, which is based on the use of the natural properties of the salt mines, caves, mines, karst caves (spelaion – Greek. Cave). It is one of the most effective non-drug treatment and rehabilitation of patients with respiratory diseases.

Underground speleokompleks- is unique in its design structure with a separate ventilation system and its own infrastructure. In this regard, the underground health and fitness complex is fundamentally different from all currently active speleological.

Underground speleological consists of 2 units. The first – in operation since 1990. The second underground department was put into operation in July 2012. It located at the base of the first mine seven kilometers from the ground corps hospitals of the city of Salihorsk.

The world’s first underground speleotherapy clinic was located in two different geological conditions, as well as passed a package of additional mining to form healing speleosredy and its regeneration. One complex workings therapeutic purpose has been equipped in the reservoir developed potassium salt.

Another set of openings of the same purpose is formed in the array of underlying rock salt. Two complex mining provide unique speleosredy formation conditions that are typical conditions for potash mines because both conditions of the rock-salt mine.

Under these conditions, significantly widens the range speleosredy emerging therapeutic factors needed for effective treatment process. This whole set of factors determines the uniqueness of the underground facilities of healthcare in terms of expanding the medical indications for the use of speleotherapy method. At the same time significantly increase the potential of the method in achieving both the therapeutic and healing effect. This confirms the long-standing practice operation of speleotherapy.

The second feature is a special network of speleological air supply ventilation openings. Said complex workings has reasonable length, as well as the regulated air passes mobility. This arrangement ensures the formation of curative speleosredy parameters corresponding salt rock material composition and geological conditions speleohospital placement. In this connection, therapeutic environment is unique in its composition and thus the nature of the impact on the patient’s body.

The third important feature of the clinic is associated with its construction. This feature speleohospital due to separate, separate airing all treatment chambers. With this organization clean ventilation air is supplied to each chamber and then through Air Release wells reset to a common ventilation output. In such a system of ventilation air “waste” can not go back to the common air medium mining medical department. Such a system through, separate ventilation treatment chambers prevents anthropogenic air pollution in all department.
