About Salt Cave
Himalayan Salt Cave Therapy
Healing the body from the inside out, you will relax and breathe easy in this zen-like salt environment. Breathe in the naturally ionized salt air and refresh the lungs with this clarifying treatment making it a great place to unwind and meditate: all you have to do is sit, relax and breathe listening to a beautiful calming music paired with light therapy (chromo therapy). We follow a therapeutic model of world famous subterranean medical hospital in Wieliczka Poland . Our Salt Cave is filled floor-to ceiling with over 25,000 lbs of Polish and Himalayan Crystal Salt, humidity is created by brine graduation towers and maintained at optimal level of 60 percent and air temperature is 69 degrees F creating a unique microclimate necessary for salt ionization consistent with healing factors of Wieliczka. It’s physical presence can be seen as mini stalactites and stalagmites ( secondary sedimentation) are forming on the walls and ceiling of the cave. Our cave has a high microbial cleanliness, free from fungi, pollen, dust mites and bacteria as salt naturally inhibits their development.
Rock salt contains 84 minerals: sodium, potassium, calcium, iron, iodine etc. that are released in a form of micro elementary particles of ionic aerosol to the cave’s environment. The abundance of negative ions in our cave balances the exposure of positive ions generated by electro magnetic radiation and electronic pollution of high voltage networks, Wi-Fi, computers, cell phones etc. The ionic imbalance is an underlying cause of many health conditions. The most important benefit of negative ions is that they clear the air of airborne allergens such as pollen, mold spores, bacteria and viruses. They reach our blood stream and are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of serotonin helping people to alleviate depression, relive stress and boost daytime energy. The antibacterial influence of negative ions in the air has been tested in hospitals. The percentage of harmful bacteria in the air was significantly lowered causing patient wounds heal faster with shortened convalescence time. People that are exposed to negative ions indicate increase in energy, stamina, achieving optimal weight, decrease of blood pressure. On the other hand increased concentration of positive ions can cause headaches , lethargy, dizziness, nausea, depression, indigestion and irritability. It is extremely important to add negative ions into the air for optimal health and our salt cave is a perfect space to do it. Research has proven the therapeutic values of salt caves in treatment of various health conditions especially respiratory disorders, allergies, cystic fibrosis, heart and cardiovascular disease, boost of immune system, increased concentration, relaxation and feeling refreshed. Wearing comfortable clothing and soft socks, and all you have to do is sit back, relax and breathe in our zero gravity chairs for 45 minute therapeutic session.
