Salt Cave

class-salt

It is said that one hour in the salt cave has the healing and well-being benefit of three days by the ocean! Inspired by the healing rituals practiced in European salt mines since the early 19th Century, the salt room mimics the natural healing environments of authentic salt caves.

This safe and natural therapy is suitable for people of all ages who wish to maintain optimum health and for those who suffer from respiratory ailments such as asthma, bronchitis, inflammation or common colds/flus. Using dry aerosol salt particles, the room is sterile, allergen-free and an excellent environment to breathe fresh, clean air on a regular basis. Additional benefits include detoxification, immune boosting, skin improvement, increasing lung capacity for athletic performance, relaxation and sleep improvement.

Salt is an excellent conductor of negative ions, which control balance between the insulin and adrenal functions in the autonomic nervous system. This provides a strong resistance to disease making salt cave visits an excellent part of a healthy lifestyle. Don’t worry about being around others who might be coughing… the extreme ventilation and sterile setting in this cave ensures that fresh air is pumped into the space every other second.

Healing Benefits

There are so many benefits to exposure to salt, fresh air and negative ions. We have listed some of the many benefits here but we encourage you to book a session and experience the unique benefits yourself.
