Breathe, Relax and Escape in our Himalayan Salt Cave

Our one-of-a-kind salt cave boasts of more than 17,000 pounds of salt imported from the Himalayan Mountains. Here is a quick guide to our Himalayan Salt Cave and what you can expect when you make an appointment with us.

What are some of the benefits of our Himalayan Salt Cave?

Salt caves promote energy and vitality while relaxing and calming the nervous and lymphatic systems. Salt is a natural antifungal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory and can promote a positive mood.

Not only are you surrounded by this natural compound, you are also benefiting from breathing in fine salt particles dispersed by our generator. This helps reduce mucus and inflammation in the lungs, improves a variety of respiratory conditions such as asthma, allergies, bronchitis, sinusitis and Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). 

It’s equivalent to spending a day at the ocean breathing in the ocean air – without the exposure to dangerous UV rays. Salt is a powerful therapeutic healing health remedy for guests of all ages. Plus, you no longer have to go down into an actual cave or travel all the way to the beach to receive the benefits. You can come up to our second-floor wellness center and spend an afternoon relaxing and investing in your health.

Besides salt, what are some of the cave’s other features?

In addition to the (literal) tons of Himalayan salt, relaxing music plays from speakers that are discretely built into the cave’s ceiling. As far as outside noise is concerned, the room is heavily padded, and we strive to keep the upstairs wellness area as Zen-like as possible.

Additionally, the ceiling is dotted with thousands of small lights that resemble twinkling stars. There are also lights in the walls that add a warm ambience throughout the cave, and a string of lights along the floor near the entrance of the cave indicating where there is a small step.

Our cave is also equipped with a radiant heat floor for when you bury your toes into the salt.

Most importantly, though, air is blown into the room through a series of vents so the salt is experienced at a higher concentration to maximize the benefits.

How does the process work?

We ask that guests arrive approximately 15 minutes before their scheduled appointment, and we will greet them and get them signed in. We provide secure lockers for guests to place any personal items – phones and other devices are not permitted inside the cave.

Shoes are also not permitted inside the cave, but guests are encouraged to wear socks or socks can be provided.

Sessions are 45 minutes long, and clients can spend that time however they wish, whether it is relaxing, meditating or sleeping. Blankets are also provided to make the experience as cozy as possible.

When the session is complete, guests can exit the cave and go about their day feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed.

Who should consider salt therapy?

Salt therapy is a natural, safe and beneficial experience for people of all ages. Accordingly, we offer a variety of Himalayan Salt Cave experiences including Yoga, Mommy & Me, Children’s Sessions, Massage Therapy and Guided Meditation sessions.

It is also an opportunity to host a truly unique private party, meeting or bridal party.
