A place for rest, relaxation & meditation….

Bring purification and balance to the skin and respiratory system while you close your eyes or gaze into the starry sky and breathe in tiny salt particles. A warm Sherpa blanket and zero-gravity chairs in a peaceful salt cave setting allow for blissful relaxation benefits.

Breathing in the salt particles that are concentrated in salt caves have been known to be a natural benefit to the upper respiratory system. The 84 trace minerals the Himalayan salt carries are also absorbed. Additionally, the salt generates negative ions which help purify and balance the body.

Halotherapy, also known as dry salt therapy, is a holistic approach that mimics the microclimate of a salt cave. Using 99.99% pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride, dry salt air is dispersed into an enclosed environment through a unique process generated by a halogenerator machine. This type of treatment is a safe and effective way of using salt’s natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and super absorbent properties to provide relief for respiratory and skin conditions.

Himalayan Salt Cave sessions are 45-minutes and are held every hour on the hour starting at 8:00 am. The Salt Cave doors close promptly on the hour. Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled time to secure your belongings in a provided locker and to fill out paperwork.

About Halotherapy

Breathing in the salt particles that are concentrated in the salt cave has been known to be a natural benefit to the upper respiratory system. The 84 trace minerals the salt carries are also absorbed. Additionally, the salt generates negative ions which help purify and balance the body.

Salt caves are methodically designed in such a way so that people can relax in a soothing and tranquil environment. It’s a place where one can sit back and experience the salt treatment in a very peaceful and non-stressful setting.

Halotherapy, also known as dry Salt Therapy is a holistic approach that mimics the microclimate of a salt cave. Using 99.99% pharmaceutical grade sodium chloride, dry salt air is dispersed into an enclosed environment through a unique process generated by a halogenerator machine. This type of treatment is a safe and effective way of using salt’s natural antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and super absorbent properties to provide relief for respiratory and skin conditions.

When you heat salt, it becomes super dry, and kinetically more active. This heated and dry pure pharmaceutical-grade sodium chloride is then crushed into micro-sized particles and dispersed into the air in an enclosed environment. When micro-particles of dry salt is inhaled into the respiratory system, it does its job by absorbing and removing allergens, toxins and foreign substances in your lungs and throughout your respiratory tract. Salt also reduces any inflammation and opens airway passages making it easier to breathe.

How does Halotherapy work?

Pure 99.99% medical-grade “dry” sodium chloride is heated and ground up in a machine called a halogenerator. The micro-sized crushed salt particles are then dispersed into the air in an enclosed environment. These particles of fine salt penetrate deep within the respiratory system and work to remove mucous build up and eliminate bacteria and toxins. This unique process helps open and expand the constricted airways allowing individuals to breathe easier and more clearly. Dry Salt Therapy also provides amazing skin rejuvenating benefits when the epidermis is exposed during treatment.

What are the benefits and conditions Halotherapy treats?

Dry Salt Therapy has many positive effects on our respiratory, skin and immune systems. It reduces bronchial inflammation, thins and removes mucous from the lungs, as well as improves lung capacity and functionality. It also reduces skin inflammation, improves cellular rejuvenation and decreases itching and irritated skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema. Dry Salt Therapy has also been very successful in reducing stress as well as enhancing our cardiovascular system.

In addition, those who suffer from the following conditions can greatly benefit from the halotherapy.

  • Allergies
  • Emphysema
  • Asthma
  • Psoriasis
  • Bronchitis
  • Pneumonia
  • Bronchial Infections
  • Rhinitis
  • Chronic ENT illnesses
  • Sinus Infections
  • Cold/Flu
  • Sinusitis
  • Cystic Fibrosis
  • Smoker’s Cough
  • Dermatitis
  • Snoring
  • Ear Infections
  • Stress and Fatigue
  • Eczema
  • Wheezing

When should it be avoided?

As Halotherapy is known as a safe and natural treatment, clients who have any serious health conditions or women who are pregnant should always seek proper medical advice from a doctor first. Halotherapy is not recommended for people who have the following conditions.

  • Infections associated with a fever
  • Contagious diseases
  • Cancer
  • Tuberculosis
  • Cardiac disease patients
  • Acute respiratory disease
  • Severe hypertension
  • Chronic obstructive lung diseases
  • Intoxication

Are there any side effects?

Normally there are no side effects. Some people might experience a scratchy throat or a tickle in their sinuses. Others who might be slightly more sensitive could experience a minor skin irritation, which tends to go away after a session or two. For those who experience a slight cough, this is a sign that the salt therapy is effectively working. The body is loosening and releasing all the mucous buildup.

Are there any contraindications?

Not really. However, because Halotherapy has a detoxifying effect by releasing toxins and bacteria from the body, people who are taking certain medications might want to wait until they are done with the medication. Always check with your doctor before starting any Salt Therapy treatments if you are taking any medications for severe conditions.

How many sessions/times a week is necessary?

Halotherapy offers the best results when practiced regularly. The benefits are accumulative where consistency and frequency is the key. People with chronic issues will benefit greatly if visiting salt rooms at least 3-4 times a week. Those who are looking to incorporate Salt Therapy into their regular wellness routine would benefit from a weekly session. Halotherapy is safe to use on a daily basis if desired.

What results can patients expect?

Many patients who have asthma, allergies and other bronchial issues have seen some amazing results in a short period of time. Breathing became easier; more energy was experienced and just an overall better quality of life. We don’t make any medical claims about Dry Salt Therapy but after receiving treatments patient’s respiratory issues and lung function have vastly improved. In addition, those who have severe skin conditions such as psoriasis, eczema or acne have also had incredible improvements in the health of their skin.
