Beata Kosakowska Founder of Salt Spa St.Augustine
My American dream began in 1986 while living in New York City. I managed a large jewelry company and owned a successful catering business which was exclusive to the medical and pharmaceutical industry. During this time, I learned how the U.S medical system focuses on treating illness through a symptoms-only approach. The pharmaceutical industry controls drug sales, which are paramount, leaving no room for incorporating natural therapies to treat patients.
I was born and raised in Poland in a medical family. My father was an E.N.T doctor specializing in the treatment of respiratory disorders, infections and allergies. For almost 50 years, he passionately dedicated himself to treating patients using both conventional and alternative approaches. In many cases, the alternative approach was more effective long term, and without the common side effects of prescription drugs. In Poland, and the rest of Europe alike, the holistic approach is an integral part of regular health care, and a way of life for thousands of people.
My family background sparked my interest in natural therapies, which resulted in me writing my college graduation thesis on “Curative Powers of Natural Spas in Poland.” Opening Salt Spa St. Augustine, the first 5-star halotherapy (salt therapy) health resort in Florida, is a dream come true. I was inspired by the world famous Polish Wieliczka Salt Mine, which introduced halotherapy to western civilization. The Wieliczka mine has a proven therapeutic effectiveness for over 700 years. Today, the mine features a subterranean hospital run by the Polish Ministry of Health. It is a phenomenon of science, engineering, art, history and deep faith in God of people that build it, for which it was placed on UNESCO’s first list of ten most amazing natural places in the world.
Wellness and relaxation is highly prominent in European culture. Salt Spa St. Augustine looks forward to welcoming our guests by introducing the European philosophies of natural wellness, relaxation, and the therapeutic power of salt.
