Salt Cave

Our Salt Cave surrounds you with thousands of pounds of Himalayan Salt on the walls and floor. A halogenerator fills the Salt Cave with medical grade salt and, much like being at the beach, you breathe in the healthy salt air.

This sterile, ionized environment will relax and rejuvenate you from the inside out. You’ll gaze at the glowing Himalayan Salt tile walls, and feel the texture of the loose Himalayan Salt on the floor under your feet, as you listen to soft music and breathe in the pharmaceutical grade salt that fills the air.

Studies show that just one 45-minute session in a Salt Cave leaves you feeling like you spent 3 full days at the beach. It’s the perfect local getaway for those times you want a break but are unable to leave town!

Relax In A Naturally Germ-Free Environment

Salt is naturally anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-microbial. This means, no viruses (or other germs) can survive for more than a minute or two inside our Salt Cave. It is a completely safe and sterile environment.

This also means, you don’t need to worry about “catching” an illness from someone else inside the Salt Cave. Even better, if you’re already struggling with symptoms of your own, our Salt Cave will kill those germs and help you recover more quickly.

FAQs

Halotherapy is a Dry Salt Therapy that utilizes a halogenerator to grind and crush 99.99% Pure Grade Sodium Chloride (Salt) into micronized particles that are dispersed into a salt room or salt cave. (Click Here to read more about Halotherapy)

Halotherapy (Dry Salt Therapy) is a 100% natural, safe, drug-free, and non-invasive wellness treatment.

Halotherapy (Salt Therapy) has no harmful side effects. The treatment is as natural as walking along the beach. Some people might experience a runny nose, mild tickle in the throat, or an increase in coughing due to excess mucous build up… but that is simply an indication that the Salt Therapy is working to remove mucous and toxins from the lungs and airways.

Yes. Not only is Halotherapy safe for children, it is a highly recommended natural treatment. In fact, according to European clinical research, children respond to the therapy even more quickly than adults do!

No. The Salt Cave is a completely germ-free environment. Salt is anti-microbial, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral. The cave is filled with microscopic salt particles which creates a virtually sterile environment. Also, after each session, the room air is vented out and the chairs & headrests are disinfected with an EPA-approved organic disinfectant. The salt on the walls and floor is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also keeps the room sterile… and the halogenerator disburses  pharmaceutical dry salt into the air for a curative microclimate.

Loose, comfortable clothing that you can relax in works best. If you are using Halotherapy for a skin condition, you’ll want to have that area exposed during your session. Since salt is dry, it can be easily brushed off and it will not harm your clothes. There is also no concern if salt gets in your eyes or hair.

Some people are concerned about the intake of salt because of issues relating to diet, high blood pressure, and hypertension. Halotherapy is different as it is associated with the respiratory system and not the digestive tract. When inhaled, the amount of salt entering the respiratory system doesn’t present any risk to your health. It kills bacteria, reduces inflammation, and expands airways.

Yes. Halotherapy has over 50 years of scientific research proving its effectiveness. Most of the research has been done in Eastern Europe and Russia where the treatment orginated. Dr. A. V. Chervinskaya, the head of Clinical Research Respiratory Center in St. Petersburg Russia, worked in the field of pulmonary and rehabilitation medicine and has published more than two hundred articles on Halotherapy. The New England Journal of Medicine published an article on the efficacy of Salt Therapy in cystic fibrosis. Their findings were that long-term saline salt treatment had a positive impact on lung function, and found no negative side effects associated with Halotherapy.

We use only pure pharmaceutical grade salt (99.99% Pure Sodium Chloride) in our halogenerator. The salt contains no added minerals, contaminants or fillers. It comes from a natural source, and is naturally processed to remove all impure elements. It is the same salt that is used in the hospitals in Eastern Europe as well as in their salt rooms, and the same salt that was used for Halotherapy research. (Note:  We do not use Himalayan salt or sea salt because these salts are not stripped of their impurities and can contain dirt, clay or other types of debris that could be harmful to the lungs. Himalayan salt can be healthy for the digestive system but not for the respiratory system.)

No. Halotherapy is a complementary treatment with the goal of decreasing and controlling medical conditions. Halotherapy should be used in conjunction with the medications your doctor has prescribed. And, as always, consult with your doctor if you have any concerns about any condition for which you are under the care of a doctor.

Although Halotherapy is known as a safe and natural treatment, anyone who has serious health conditions – and women who are pregnant – should always consult their doctor first. Halotherapy is not recommended for people who have the following conditions:  contagious diseases, infections associated with a fever, some forms of cancer (consult your doctor), tuberculosis, cardiac disease, acute serious respiratory disease, severe hypertension and intoxication.
