SALT CAVE EXPERIENCE
The perfect alternative to a beach vacation, our Himalayan salt therapy sessions involve spending time relaxing in a salt cave breathing in tiny salt crystal particles. Pink salt crystals are ground into tiny microparticles and dispersed into the air, releasing negatively charged purifying ions.
What is Halo Therapy
The anti-inflammatory,anti-bacterial and antifungal properties of salt have been widely known for centuries, particularly for the delicate mucus tissue that lines the respiratory system. From ancient techniques like Ayurvedic neti pots to modern thalassotherapy pools, the healing powers of salt are undisputed.
The negative ions released by this ultrapure salt work on our bodies at the biochemical level, particularly through stress reduction and relaxation, with more energy, better mental health, and mood enhancement. By counterbalancing inflows of positive ions from all the electronic devices around us in our everyday lives, Himalayan salt therapy improves emotional and mental health across the board.
Breathing salt-enriched air deep down into the lungs during halotherapy sessions offers system-wide benefits:
Smoother, clearer skin, with less redness, dryness, and itching, with indications that salt treatments may lessen the severity and frequency of psoriasis and eczema flare-ups, and possibly with faster post-surgery healing;
Easier breathing, as Himalayan salt reduces inflammation and helps fight off infections, clear respiratory blockages by drawing fluid from swollen lung linings and sinus tissues, caused by allergies, asthma, and even smoker’s cough;
More energy and enhanced well-being, as negative ions boost serotonin, the happiness hormone that is widely believed to have positive impacts on memory, mood, and sleep, as well as appetite and digestion.
Himalayan Salt Therapy Pro Tip: Eat a light snack (fruit is perfect) and drink plenty of water before and after your halotherapy session, as staying well hydrated helps clear clogged airways and eliminate toxins.
What to Expect
Salt Sessions are typically 45 minutes, please arrive 15 minutes prior to check in and store your belongings. To ensure a safe clean experience for our guests you will need to remove your shoes before entering the salt cave.
Once your full party has arrived your host will take you into the salt cave where you will be seated in one of our anti-gravity lounge chairs. The salt cave is typically kept around 70 degrees, which can feel cool to some guests. We do offer blankets to our guests if needed.
Once everyone is seated, your host will do a quick review of the treatment, they will then leave you to enjoy your time. During your session you can expect to listen to soothing music playing in the background, the room's light will be dimly lit to help you relax. Many of our guests use this time to reflect on their day or week, practice breathing exercises, and generally find peace of mind.
